Key Points for the Town of Palm Beach

  • The Colorado State University Forecast of Atlantic Hurricane Activity from August 19–September 1, 2019 shows below normal activity
  • Dry Saharan air in the Atlantic basin has continued to throttle development
  • “It is important to remember that sometimes Mother Nature throws a switch, and systems suddenly start to develop,” said well known hurricane meteorologist Bryan Norcross

COLORADO STATE UNIVERSITY NEWS RELEASE — We believe that the next two weeks will be characterized by activity at below normal levels (<6 ACE). The National Hurricane Center has one area with a very low probability of development over the next 48 hours.

The global models do not indicate significant tropical cyclone development in the next week. While vertical wind shear is predicted to be below-average in week one across most of the tropical Atlantic, the models do not predict TC formation to occur, likely due to continued subsidence. Longer-range models also hint at continued dryness in week two.
