Discuss storms that show up in the models.
Well this for a start. GFS has been honking at some sort of an storm in gulf past few runs.
Ok, getting little excited lol. Heres another run from the 6zgfs
Might not be much but its something
Even though the storm is at hour 384 it looks like pressure dropped even more, moving north over the ArkLaMiss.
This, of course, might be real. However, the GFS may very well be showing a fake Caribbean/Gulf storm over and over, especially considering how far out it still is in forecast time. The GFS is notorious for showing fake W Caribbean geneses even after having many runs in a row with a forecasted storm without time slippage. I've seen it and documented it before. Don't let the GFS' persistence fool you into thinking this must be real. I'm going with "it may be real but it could easily be another one of its fakes". Climo, especially in oncoming El Niño years (we may or may not be in an oncoming El Niño year), favors this area for genesis in mid June. This is about the only time of the season that has increased genesis potential in association with an oncoming El Niño.
Also the GFS Para and the CMC are showing a system, though unless the Euro shows something its not too likely to develop. Something to watch as mentioned though.
Wont post image on 12z gfs but the Low is there. The signs are there ATM with a storm signal some sort. Usually homegrown storms likes to birth right here locally around June/July. As Larry pointed out this could be real or fake. Im just ready for some action.
Hmmm.... D10 I know but maybe onto something or on something. GFS and Euro images below, does look like lowering pressures in the western Caribbean around that time
I noticed the Euro is showimg lower pressures. If we see a strong low on the Euro in the next few days we could be looking at something, or not.
Just about all the models show something of an storm some sort.
interesting times ahead.
so long as whatever stays off shore and makes pretty fish maps to look at!
Tropical models are not even hinting
If they do, I'll be screaming so loud Rosie will hear me without a doubt ...
Just something to watch out for.
It's always something ...
18z gfs says, im really trying here, lol.
0z GFS still showing something and the Euro still shows lowering pressures but dang it's still 10 days out
Yep, all models suggesting something as of now, though the GFS's path has changed more towards Mexico for now. If the update for the worse hadn't happened I would be saying one is likely to form, but because it did we can only guess whether or not it will.
Looks like GFS 12Z still advertising a system in the Gulf.
Fortunately, way past truncation, but nonetheless -- do not like at all ...
I think it is a fantasy storm. If it still shows it (which I doubt it) we may have to keep an eye on it.
Lol, its been showing it for about a week now but still stuck in the 300 range.
I bet it will be gone next run.
Probably not both GFS and Euro, as well as now 12z gefs show something. Images below from Allan, @raleighwx Twitter

And from Ryan Maue (emphasis, I hope, is on "weak") --
BTW - None of the "traditional" tropical models are biting right now ...
I been watching these runs for about a week now, I do believe something will form in gulf but not sure about strength wize
Accuweather and few other sites are interested in next weeks potential storm. Something to watch closely around the 19/20th time frame.
The last two runs of the EPS fwiw favor a low to form somewhere around the Yucatan 6/18-20 and to then move WNW into MX ~6/22 well south of S TX. OTOH, recent GEFS means have been significantly further north with more members than the EPS suggesting a potential threat to the CONUS. The "Crazy Uncle" (CMC) ens mean implies even more uncertainty with even more spread sort of implying that the NE GOM US coast threat is higher vs what the GEFS suggests and way higher than what the EPS suggests.
Welcome to optical tropical weather ... though, Larry, you need no "welcome"!
PS - You could swim the bamboo today ... LOL
