Tropical Cyclone Activity Report – Atlantic Ocean / Caribbean Sea / Gulf of Mexico
January 8, 2016

There are no active tropical cyclones in the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea…or the Gulf of Mexico

PDC’s Global Hazards Atlas centered on an area of disturbed weather between Bermuda and the southeast coast of the United States

PDC’s Global Hazards Atlas centered on an area of disturbed weather between Bermuda and the southeast coast of the United States

The NHC is pointing out an unusual extra-tropical low pressure system centered about 425 miles west-southwest of Bermuda, which is producing a large area of gale force winds reaching 60 to 65 mph.

Here’s a satellite image of this area, along with a near real time wind profile of this disturbance

Environmental conditions are not expected to be conducive for subtropical or tropical cyclone formation through the weekend. while the low moves east-northeastward into the central Atlantic Ocean.

However, conditions could become conducive for this system to acquire some subtropical characteristics while it moves east-southeastward into the eastern subtropical Atlantic Ocean by the middle of next week.

*  Formation chance through 48 hours…low…10 percent
*  Formation chance through 5 days…low…30 percent

This is the 5-day graphical tropical weather outlook

Upper-level winds will remain strong in the vicinity of this system, and ocean temperatures will be a marginal 75-77F, suggesting that any potential development would be subtropical rather than tropical. If this storm were to get a name…it would be Alex.
