Meanwhile the tropics have a little activity occurring with a bit of disturbed weather way out in the Atlantic on rack to become a tropical disturbance tonight or tomorrow and then a tropical storm by the end of the week as it tracks through the Lesser Antilles and then by Puerto Rico and The Bahamas. The exact track is far from certain and the storm is unlikely to become strong for a variety of reasons but it bears watching. Most forecast models do not showing it impacting the east coast of the US but there is at least a chance so I figured it was worth mentioning (plus the tropics have been so quiet it is the only excitement there in a few weeks).
