The Tropics remain quiet but that may be ending soon. A tropical wave in the Caribbean is undergoing wind shear, but the shear will relax later this week. Therefore, conditions for tropical cyclone formation will become more favorable later this week. In fact, the GFS and the Canadian models indicate the possibility of this tropical wave becoming a tropical cyclone by the end of the week or the weekend. This will likely be the beginning of a more active weather pattern in the Tropical Atlantic.
