While it is in the longer range of the ECMWF, the disturbance that exited Africa yesterday may be worth watching as it traverses the MDR.

The disturbance that the ECMWF is suggesting may pose a threat to the NW Caribbean/Gulf the first week of August has been designated 92L near the Cape Verde Islands. Thought I would post the information here since July will be over soon and early August would be any potential threat to the Gulf.

The last official major hurricane to make a direct strike on the Houston/Galveston area was Category 3 Hurricane Alicia on Thursday, August 18, 1983 at 2:00 am, with maximum sustained winds of 115mph and a minimum central air pressure 962mb. Just food for thought for our weather forum.

The NHC just increased the odds of development for 92L up to 50%.
