Subtropical Storm Debby Forms Central Atlantic

The Atlantic Tropical season should be revving up right now but due to unfavorable upper air conditions across the Tropics and the issue with Saharan dust still limiting convective development, we have been leaning to the idea of  a season where our storms will essentially be home grown. Subtropical Storm Debby is an example of this as it has formed in the Central Atlantic. You can see it a the top middle of the satellite loop. Low pressure has developed under a cold upper low. That system has at least acquired some tropical characteristics  and the National Hurricane Center has christened the storm Debby.

Debby will be short lived as it will most likely be absorbed by strong westerlies and low pressure in the North Atlantic. Eventually some of the moisture could find its way to Western Europe where it has been hot and bone dry. Elsewhere in the tropics we don’t see anything out there that even remotely looks like it could develop over the next several days. The Pacific remains very active and usually when the Pacific is busy the Atlantic is rather quiet. This may change in a few weeks but for now the Atlantic tropics will remain subdued.
