Tropical Activity Struggling in the Atlantic

Tropical Activity Struggling in the Atlantic

Torrential rain from the wave on Saturday is being blamed for the deaths of two people in Trinidad, according to the Associated Press.

The deaths occurred as the rain triggered floods and mudslides in Trinidad’s western suburb of Diego Martin. Two people remain missing.

Additional rain squalls will graze the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola and Jamaica through midweek as the wave races westward through the Caribbean.

During that time, the window will not open for the wave to organize back into a tropical depression.

In the far eastern Atlantic, a tropical low that was once a robust feature as it moved off the coast of Africa has succumbed to dry Saharan dust and cool ocean waters northwest of the Cape Verde Islands.

That does not mean the Hurricane Center has stopped monitoring the low.

The low will escape the Saharan dust and reach warmer water toward midweek, which could lead to tropical development. However, the low may then encounter another hurdle in its quest to strengthen–an area of stronger wind shear in the central Atlantic.

Even if the low overcomes the latter obstacle and organizes into Tropical Storm Gordon at midweek, it will likely never come close to threatening any land masses
