Tropical Storm Development Possible Next 5 Days

 Among many factors that makes tropical storm development possible is a light wind shear environment in the upper levels of the atmosphere. Up until about a week ago this was not possible in the tropical Atlantic thanks to a very strong upper air storm that was creating strong upper air winds throughout the entire Atlantic basin. That upper low is long gone and on the water vapor loop this morning we see a much more conducive environment for tropical storm development. Upper level winds have relaxed. This is going to have an impact on a strong tropical wave moving westward from the African coast. The western edge of that tropical wave is now coming into view in the southeast corner of the satellite loop

The other factor inhibiting development has been the large expansive area of dry air across the Tropical Atlantic. That has also lessened considerably. Below is a tight view of this strong wave as it begins its long trip across the Atlantic....READ MORE AT http://www.meteorologistjoecioffi.com/index.php/2017/08/03/tropical-storm-development-possible-next-5-days-2/
