2010 HURRICANE SEASON WINDING DOWN

Watching weak low pressure in the western Caribbean

This year’s hurricane season has produced 19 named tropical storms, 12 of them reaching hurricane status. Apart from those were two tropical depressions that did not become tropical storms.

Atlantic ocean and Gulf of Mexico waters have cooled into the upper 60’s greatly reducing the chance of storm development off our coasts. A weak low pressure over the west central Caribbean is continuing to produce tropical downpours between Honduras and Jamiaca, but southwesterly wind shear in the middle and upper atmosphere from Cuba and Hispaniola northward is keeping the chance another 2010 tropical storm limited to the deep tropics closer to Central/South America or the Windward Islands.
