Tropical Cyclone Activity Report – Atlantic Ocean / Caribbean Sea / Gulf of Mexico
January 12, 2016

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

PDC Global Hazards Atlas displaying 3-hour precipitation accumulation…and an area of disturbed weather 900 miles southwest of the Azores

PDC Global Hazards Atlas displaying 3-hour precipitation accumulation…and an area of disturbed weather 900 miles southwest of the Azores

The NHC continues pointing out an unusual non-tropical low pressure system centered, being referred to as Invest 90L, located about 900 miles southwest of the Azores, which is producing a large area of gale force winds…reaching 60 mph (tropical storm force).

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

Here’s what the computer models are showing

Shower activity is currently limited near the center, but this low could gradually acquire some subtropical or tropical characteristics during the next couple of days…while it moves southeastward and then eastward into the eastern subtropical Atlantic.

Regardless of subtropical or tropical cyclone formation, this system is expected to produce hazardous marine conditions over portions of the central and eastern Atlantic for the next few days.

Ocean temperatures are on the cool side for a tropical system to develop…although still warm enough for the disturbance to become a subtropical storm. If this storm were to get a name…it would be Alex.

Regardless of development, the disturbance may bring heavy rains and strong winds in excess of 50 mph to the Azores Islands by Friday.

*  Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…40 percent
*  Formation chance through 5 days…medium…40 percent

This is the 5-day graphical tropical weather outlook

Only one January tropical storm has formed in the Atlantic Ocean since record keeping began back in 1851…which was an unnamed 1938 hurricane that became a tropical cyclone on January 3rd well east of the Lesser Antilles Islands.
