A weekly discussion of the tropics from the Eyewitness News Forecast Team
A nice, quiet week is in store for southeast Louisiana. The cold front that swept Karen away from us also delivered cool, dry air that will stick around through midweek. Even through the weekend, temps will just be in the middle 80s with a bit more humidity and very slim rain chances.
So is anything brewing out there?
One swirl of clouds and showers in the western Atlantic has a low chance of developing. Models show it staying weak, but there’s a chance it could stir up some rain and wind for the northeast U.S. in the second part of this week.
Another wave near Africa could gain some strength, but it will soon run into strong winds that could knock it down. Models have the wave swinging north over the central Atlantic. This year we’ve seen a lot of African waves make that same move to the north (which is great for us).
Bottom line: calm and pleasant weather here this week. And not extremely active elsewhere.
