A strong tropical wave axis currently centered over the Ivory Coast and Mali will emerge from the African coast sometime tomorrow and may develop into a tropical cyclone before a robust tropical upper tropospheric trough, spurred in part by the recurvature of the remnants of tropical cyclone Cindy further upstream, will induce increasing upper level westerly wind shear that's liable to rip any storm that develops apart. This is incredible given that there's a suppressed CCKW passing over this portion of the basin atm and it's still June... Although Bret by itself probably served as a harbinger of an active season ahead, development of yet another TC in this portion of the basin so early in the hurricane season likely says this season seriously means business. We've never seen two tropical cyclones form east of the Antilles before July...
Keep in mind, we usually only see a TC in June once every other season, having 3 in the month would be extremely unusual...

As quickly as it had a chance for TCG, it's been taken away and the NHC expects no development from this over the next 5 days. Passage of a suppressed CCKW likely has a lot to do with that

present company excluded?

i trust ...
I am talking about the hypecasters, or ones who don't know how to handle information. Basically anyone who says that this is coming and it is definite. It is concerning seeing this many runs with a storm. I think it is way too early to get something that strong. Remember, it's the 18Z, it will blow stuff out of proportion.

Trends scare me ... as well they should ... this is not a one run aberration ... by any means ... but it is a good 2 weeks plus out ... we'll see ... but when down here ... well, you get my drift ...

Carry on ... :cool:

Folks - anything, if anything, is a real long, long way off.
But, and with more than a bit of caution - remember that although less than anywhere near foolproof, the GFS nailed Hermine and Matthew real early on last year ...
Worth watching ...
Now to BBQ chicken, corn bread, coleslaw and all the rest ... :cool:
Worth eating and it's not a ways off ... :p

With Webb expertise on this season, and ealry storms forming, I say anything is possible at this point

Time to see what the Doc has to say.

I personally am putting far more stock into the GFS and CMC than the Euro so far. The Euro is a bit slow this year, which is weird since the CMC and GFS are supposed to be worse. If the system does form, I will give the long range win to the GFS. If not, the Euro gets it.

No argument here. Just meant at the time the Doc was now running.

By and large, the GFS did great last year ... FWIW

Unfortunately and fortunately, it is trending stronger. Bad because of obvious reasons, but good because the stronger it is later on, or between the Bahamas and Antilles, the more it will recurve out to sea. High placement will be key also.
Not always true, it is possible that the stronger system pumps the Ridge to the north and gets farther west

If you look at the CMC and GFS, the ridge is centered way up Northeast, much closer to Europe than America. In this case, the low would be drawn away from land IF a system pushed it out. In the CMC, no system pushes it out, but on the GFS it does. If the system veers further south early on and scrapes the Caribbean Islands, it would likely head for Florida, but if it is drawn northward more early on, it will be pulled north. Yes, systems don't always get pulled north, but in this case, if it strengthens faster, it will. If it holds off, it won't.

Meanwhile, the system is up to 50% for the next 5 days. I am sure an invest will form by Tuesday.
