Watching the Tropics

It is that time of the year to start watching the tropics.  Over the past couple days the GFS and Euro have been picking up on some future tropical/sub-tropical development in the western Atlantic in the north Bahamas area.  The National Hurricane Center did issue a Special Tropical Weather Outlook earlier this afternoon to begin awareness of the possibility.

Just looked at the latest GFS which shows a system affecting the north Florida to Carolina area in the Momday time frame.  This is something to watch and far from a certainty at this this point.  Below shows a closed low coming into the South Carolina coast early Monday morning with this afternoon’s GFS.

I will post an update tomorrow evening.  Follow @PompanoWeather for more.
