I have recently heard people talking about how we have lucked out this year because there have been no hurricane strikes on the US and the season is almost over. I would like to take this time to remind everyone that Wilma (who should have been Alpha) was the strongest hurricane on record in the Atlantic and she struck in October. Chew on that for a minute.
Anyhow, meanwhile in the Atlantic we just have one area of thunderstorms that we have been tracking for a few days now. The convection has been persistent and once upper level conditions improve, which is likely over the next couple of days, the storms could develop into a tropical depression. However, this system too would be likely to harmlessly curve out to sea. I can't even buy a good hurricane this year!
