THE TROPICS ARE QUIET

2013-07-17_075034

Middle and upper level wind shear over the eastern Gulf of Mexico, Florida and much of the Bahamas has erased much of the scattered shower activity of the last few days. While humid low level easterly trade winds dominate most of the tropical Atlantic, only a few pop-up showers will be around our area the next few days.

The massive Saharan dust has reduced or obscured most of the lower clouds over the eastern Atlantic. Hopefully, this will reduce some of the heat-producing summer solar radiation reaching the surface. The easterly winds so far have caused lower daytime temperatures over many of our east coastal counties!
