White School Flower Rag Imprime Flowers Selena 44zgYt  ( forecast to be a 125 mph Category 3 hurricane approx. 475 miles ENE of Jacksonville early Thursday morning on approach to a landfall along the Carolina coast) will produce a run of sizeable surf.
Florence has plenty of deep warm water to work with (note her “shadow” on the satellite’s SST analysis):
Monitor the NE Puerto Rico buoy for the upticks in east swell from tropical activity. Non-tropical open Atlantic Ocean lows and back-door frontal activity will be potential sources for NE swell late in the summer and early fall. Monitor the  south Hatteras buoy for back-door frontal activity off the NC Outer Banks.

Stay tuned…

PATCH (Potential for Atlantic Tropical Cyclones and Hurricanes)

As the 2018 season approaches its September 10th climatological peak, forecasters are now suggesting below normal activity. The focus may be on areas close to home in the Gulf of Mexico and western Caribbean.  CSU’s Dr. Klotzbach discusses tropical weather forecast in his Twitter feed.

While I believe the season will see near or slightly below normal activity, “me-gut” hankering was verified when it started early with activity close to home. Pre-season TS Alberto in May was followed by Chris, a system that formed near the Bahamas then became a strong re-curving hurricane east of Hatteras in June when the ample moisture feed out of the Caribean that accounted for Alberto and the early start to our season re-established. The GFS model (which accurately forecast Alberto over a week in advance) consistently suggested this, though it was a bullish outlier when  compared to other models.

Me-gut was also correct in suggesting a quite second half of July and most of August. I believe the exceptionally quite period will end in early September when several strong tropical waves push off Africa into the far eastern tropical Atlantic. Oceanic and atmospheric conditions in the tropical Atlantic will become favorable as these Cape Verde-origin systems make the long trek across the Atlantic during the historical peak of hurricane season activity in mid-September.  Me-gut is also suggesting there may be late season activity favoring the Gulf of Mexico and western Caribbean Sea late in September and extending into early October.

The NHC Atlantic Tropical Weather Discussion and the tropical western Atlantic satellite loop are good tools to monitor the Atlantic basin for activity.

Good links (updated regularly) to excellent private websites with forecast discussions monitoring tropical and non-tropical weather impacting Florida and the eastern US:  Central Florida Hurricane Center and WeatherBELL

This section will be periodically evaluated and updated as Pacific Ocean sea temperature’s teleconnection ( PNA) with Florida’s weather (and waves) dictates during the fall/winter/spring when the ENSO influences on frontal activity occurs. Here is the link to NOAA’s ENSO website to monitor the current and forecast for potential impacts.
