Mike how are the conditions looking over the next few weeks? You said earlier that September and October would be bad this year, are you still thinking the same regarding October or has anything changed?
It all looks quiet could it be that it was all for this season? Or is it to early to tell?
Ya, we have a thunder alert dog too. We have had several weather stations over the years with most lasting about 1 year at best due to rusting, moving parts stop moving, wire/wifi connections fail and having to change batteris on the top of the roof.... that have leaked.
Have two of these now. No exposed metal or moving parts. The high pole mounted unit is solar so don't have to change batteries. (pool cleaning pole works great.) Over a year and really like them.
Ordered RO membrane replacements for my 3 units that are well water supplied. They are suppose to be good for 2 years. With the ocean salt water intruding due to lack of rain, they lasted only one year.
My weather stations are showing lots of thunder many times and we hear some. But we don't get much rain, if any, at all.
The NHC is showing a tropical wave moving off the coast of Africa this week. Mike what are your thoughts on this one please? They say tropical cyclone formation is unlikely this late in the season but are forecasting a 30% chance of development.

it looks like our 2019 season come's to an end a couple weeks early than expected.
while the eastern highway still has potential, the forecasts show the upper atmosphere winds on the rise.
so by mid week upper level winds should be too strong to allow any storm rises.
if this is temporarily or already the constant conditions/end of season, we should know by next weekend.
as for now, Disturbance #1, the Tropical Wave that hit the eastern highway, is strong and rising powers.
it should manage to become a TD later tomorrow or Tuesday, but then it will go down quickly.
anyways, steering winds at it's location off the African west coast move it NW along the Cabo Verde Islands and out to Sea.
Disturbance#3 is just a weak Tropical Wave mid highway, conditions on the western highway will not allow development.
it should arrive over the lesser Antilles by Wednesday and enter the Caribbean sea, but it will stay just a tropical wave.
no dangers anywhere out there expected for our Island
it is very likely that we can call off the season by next weekend.
I've noticed the currents starting to turn too and just in time.. We're preparing the mermaid to head out for new sailing adventures.
Thanks for taking the time to call out storms again this year Mike. Wishing you a great "Off Season".. Hope the fishing is good too.
