THE X-FACTORS

1. The North Pacific has reawakened with several large storms that are tracking

east toward the US Mainland, via the Jet Stream. These storms should enhance

swell development as they cross over and enter the Western Atlantic next week. 

2. The seasonal Bermuda High has shifted toward the Central Atlantic. This will

allow storms to exit the US East Coast and develop in or near our swell window. 

This applies to storms moving in from the West and the Tropics

TROPICAL UPDATE

Things are pretty slow now in the Tropics now. 

FYI: The variables are setting up for a potentially historic hurricane season

FORECASTERS NOTE 
FORECAST OBSERVATIONS
Water temps have been schizophrenic during the past several weeks, with water
temps at one point plummeting into the mid 40's but temps should begin to normalize as we head deeper into summer. Definitely keep that fullsuit and boots handy though as seasonal southerlies continue to fuel the coldwater upwelling. 


Stay tuned because it's gonna go bonkers

Things are quiet in the Tropics now

Hostile variables 
are choking out any
potential tropical storms

FORECASTERS NOTES 

Wind shear and Saharan dust are choking out any potential storm in the Atlantic Basin. Wind shear from strong upper level winds decapitate storms 

and Saharan Dust in the upper atmosphere will create an area of dry air that

kills any opportunity for convection. This is to be expected for July but with 
 La Niña gradually creating favorable conditions for hurricane development, NOAA has issued its most aggressive hurricane season forecast on record for 2024.
