Tropics blessedly quiet, for once


Recommended Posts

Only five quiet days in past two months

12:01 p.m. ET ET Wed.,Sep.29,2004


Buzz Bernard, Sr. Meteorologist, The Weather Channel



There have been only five days since the beginning of August without an Atlantic tropical storm or hurricane, and with Lisa still active in the central Atlantic, today is no exception. Tropical Storm Lisa is churning northward and could strengthen to a minimal hurricane by this evening, but poses no threat to the U. S. Meanwhile, a cluster of storms and squalls has flared up in the eastern Atlantic several hundred miles SSW of the Cape Verde Islands and bears watching. Closer to home, the remnants of Jeanne are sweeping northeastward away from New England this afternoon (see Storm Watch).


In the western Pacific, Tropical Storm Meari (65 mph) is racing ENE through central Japan. The center of Meari is expected to be near Tokyo in about 8-10 hours.
