While it is in the longer range of the ECMWF, the disturbance that exited Africa yesterday may be worth watching as it traverses the MDR.

The disturbance that the ECMWF is suggesting may pose a threat to the NW Caribbean/Gulf the first week of August has been designated 92L near the Cape Verde Islands. Thought I would post the information here since July will be over soon and early August would be any potential threat to the Gulf.

The last official major hurricane to make a direct strike on the Houston/Galveston area was Category 3 Hurricane Alicia on Thursday, August 18, 1983 at 2:00 am, with maximum sustained winds of 115mph and a minimum central air pressure 962mb. Just food for thought for our weather forum.

The NHC just increased the odds of development for 92L up to 50%.

92L will likely we a slow developer and probably will not slow down it's rapid Westerly motion until mid/late this week as it begins its approach to the Eastern Caribbean. Careful with the various computer schemes including the ensembles beyond 3 to 5 days. I suspect they will not an idea what might happen until reconnaissance missions from the AF and possibly a G-IV high altitude mission give additional data to those model solutions.

Models tend to recurve systems out to sea at first and then adjust back west with time. Don’t let your guard down with 92L because it’s way too early for models to know where it’ll go. Ridges and troughs constantly change, especially past 3 days.

The latest Euro takes this as far west as the central Gulf before turning north. Models shifting further south and west it seems.
