Our Highway is nice covered with thick layers of SAL(the Saharan Dust).
we are very early in the season, it will not last forever And dry airlayers alone do not hinder storms to build and grow, it just slows development down to a certain degree and even shuts down any development for smaller systems.
A big System could develop and grow under such conditions, less quick and less powerful as it would without the dry air, but still a good sized/powered cyclone could form under actual conditions.
While we have the dry air protection up nicely over the tropical highway, we have ZERO bothering wind shear there.
At least we have right now nice protective high windshear over the whole caribbean sea, around all sides of DR and up to a few hundred miles out East of the Lesser Antilles, so what ever would come through the dry air now, would get an other hard hit by wind shear wen reaching the caribbean sea.
All those conditions are constantly moving/shifting/changing, so nothing today is a factor for next weekend, next week or next month.
It has to be watched all the time to see the important Tendencies of the movement out there.
We are 5 weeks away from the Peak Point for storm dangers, which is on average September 10th.
Closer to that date we will see what conditions are present to let something start or to keep it down on a lower danger level.
So far we are for our area super fine, well " safer" than most past years at the same Date.
Just in case, Always keep the beer freezers stocked for any emergencies and never let them become old/expired, lol
