First Tropical Wave Of Hurricane Season 2014 – Possible Development?

First Tropical Wave of Atlantic Hurricane Season 2014
Hey guys just wanted to point out our first Tropical Wave of the season getting close to the Caribbean today. The GFS long range model for the past 3 days has actually been hinting at developing this in 10 to 15 days when it enters the Western Caribbean. Long range conditions do look favorable so I will of course keep an eye on it. If the GFS continues to pick up on it along with other models I will let everyone know ASAP. But as of now this is certainly nothing to worry about, long range models are very unreliable. But as always I like to keep y’all in the loop for any kind of potential trouble down the road… stay tuned!
