    Levi. What is that on the Euro ensemble’s near the same area potential tropical cyclone 7 is? Is that the wave by Puerto Rico?

  • Jim C says:

    Thanks as usual, Levi. A well behaved TS wouldn’t be a bad thing for southeast Alabama. It’s been very hot, with highs in the low to mid-90’s over the past week, and that’s been sucking some of the moisture from the soil we’ve built up from pretty regular storms this summer. I just had a couple cells move through from that upper level low east of me that’s now moving onshore over S Georgia. A couple inches of rain would be a welcome addition to the soil moisture. It’s been a great summer in terms of rain so far, and it’s the greenest for early September that I’ve seen for a long time. We’ll see how what will become Gordon behaves.

    Regards, Jim

    Thank you for the update Levi,
    I have been following you since your early beginnings in WU,
    and just have to tell you that your blog and explanations are the
    bets. Keep up the good work!

    Fortunately, not much fuel in the path, so it seems.

  • Paul Emmanuel says:

    Levi, thank you for your excellent analysis. I’ve been watching, for some time now, the lows drop off the west African coast. If they drop off from Senegal and south near the equator, they do not seem to have enough time to form into a tropical depression. If they drop off north of Senegal, the potential to form is much greater. Have you noticed this?

    Thank you

    How often is this page updated? Seems to be infrequent.

    • Levi says:

      I don’t always make videos every day, but I will likely start daily videos beginning tonight for Florence, Olivia, and the other storms in the Atlantic.
