Atlantic quickly waking up

The Atlantic is today quickly coming to life with three areas of concern for American forecasters.

TD-2 is hovering around 10km/h below Tropical Storm status and that is expected to change anywhere within the next hour or two through until tomorrow NZT. If TD-2 does become a tropical-storm it will be named Ana.

A bigger area of severe weather lies behind TD-2 and while a tropical depression hasn’t yet formed the expected storm may become the first hurricane of the season.

And a reminder that just because it’s been a quiet start to the season it doesn’t mean things will be quiet.  

In early August 1992 no storms had formed however on August 16th a tropical depression developed which later turned in to Hurricane Andrew – a category 5 monster which levelled much of Miami.

The next two weeks will see a big change in the Atlantic weather system.
