The 2013 Atlantic Basin Hurricane Season is two days old and I'm already watching one system not too far from home.
According to satellite, radar, and surface analysis, a broad area of low pressure at the surface is located generally south of 25 degrees latitude. The lowest pressure is focused in two areas. First, a weak center of low pressure is positioned near 18 North and 95 West. A trough of low pressure extends from the Yucatan Peninsula to the Straits of Florida. The moisture is rich and deep over that area and daytime heating is activating convection.
Any development of this system will be slow, but several of our reliable forecast models forecast indicate development is possible later this week or into the weekend.
