Tropical Storm Karl Forms In Atlantic
Tropical Storm Karl Forms In Atlantic
It isn’t too often that you have 3 named storms running around at the same time but it does happen from time to time. Today we have Ian, Julia, and now Tropical Storm Karl which formed in the far Eastern Atlantic yesterday. You can see Karl on the loop above and below. It is a sheared cyclone however it did strengthen in a rather hostile environment so it seems that Tropical Storm Karl has enough organization to hold together over the next day or 2 at least.
Right now if you look at the wide loop you can see te clouds in the middle of the picture moving from south to north. This is the trough that exists east of 60 west that has caused 2 tropical systems, Ian and Gaston to recurve. That trough is forecast to lift out and a large ridge build in its place. If this is the case Karl is likely to miss that trough and make it much further west, possibly as far west as 70 degrees west in the long long range. More on this with JOESTRADAMUS.
