I honestly haven't been paying too much attention these last couple weeks. I've been so busy doing firewood on my weekends and then working I haven't much time to actually sit down and look. That said, I DO think the MJO is making itself known as the 6-10 day forecasts appear to be backing down from their corresponding temperature forecasts in the 10-15 over the last several days of cycles. Again, I cannot concretely confirm or deny that, though, as I haven't actually sat down and done "one-to-one" comparisons. I WILL say I'm still very anxious to see if something tropical (or sub-tropical) tries popping once the MJO rolls into Phase 2, as I believe that phase corresponds very well to development in the Gulf and along and/or just offshore of the Southeast coast, as well as the time-mean surface pressures remaining higher than normal across the east-central U.S. thanks to anomalous soil moisture content leading to cooler than average surface temperatures and resultant higher pressure then aided by the MJO Phase 2 (probably should confirm that, but I'm pretty sure I remember reading a paper or two on the MJO a while back......my memory is shotty AT BEST, though so take that with extreme caution hahahaha)

As a follow-up, I like the period from ~May 15th through ~May 25th for our first true tropical/sub-tropical system to develop either in the western/northwestern Caribbean, Gulf, and or extreme western Atlantic. The reasons were generally discussed above, but I also like the look of -AO and negative SOI to assist penetrating, albeit transient troughs cutting through the eastern CONUS. This will help supply the surface ridging and aid in enhanced lower-level convergence along and near the coasts. I'm officially on the board with a forecast, so let's see how this pans out!!! Haha any thoughts?

A trough split will be the most likely culprit that then feeds back close to land rather than a classic tropical system that develops from scratch.

Rb you know I'm with ya for the tropics. If no o e else does ill start a thread in may e a week or 2. I think as has been pretty common over recent years we see some sort of development before June 1st.

Also supposed to be a above average year with 14 named I think 7 hurricane and 3 major. I noted a cool spot off our coast if anything made it up this way would quickly die out or transition.

Life exists!!!! I thought I was beginning to hear my own echo come back to me because it's so empty in here now ahahaha I know you love the tropics, but you also just brought to light the most aggravating aspects of them; the time it takes to track them ahaha oh well, at least I know I'll have a companion on this journey lmao

In terms of models, I'm really liking the GFS/FV3-GFS and will continue to ride with them. They make sense with the progged hemispheric and synoptic setup, as well as the theoretical result. As it stands now, I fully expect other modeling to begin picking up on at least some form of development in the same region(s) once in temporal range.

JMA is also strongly supporting the GFS in it's H5 evolution.

Lol Ray. I’m still in my offseason. Not quite ready to start back yet. While I will continue to check in periodically there isn’t enough excitement yet.

Tomorrow does not look great. I think there will be a period of rain or thunderstorms in the early morning. There will be partial clearing, perhaps even sunshine, in the mid morning to early afternoon, before another round of possibly severe thunderstorms roll in late Saturday.

NNJ gets hit hard on the NAM tomorrow afternoon.



Sunday will be much of the same but more clouds and rain than Saturday (not severe).
