It will be interesting to see if an early Cat 5 means the hurricane season will end earlier

I think he said this is Port Antonio, Jamaica. Live feed. It is starting to get intense there.

The govt. working night and day to clean it up.

These influencers like Jose need to dedicate a lot more time to issues with trash and the education of citizens.

Jose alone has over a half a million subscribers.

I follow fundosami on igram. He's very environmentally conscious but doesn't have a lot of traffic. Wish he had more.

I am surprised that all stayed quiet so far, aside of the lil Disturbance off the SE of the usa..
We have one strong Tropical Wave behind the other crossing from Africa over here,
but none got caught in any interaction with any Low Pressure System/Area to start some movement/development.
The Surface Conditions snippet is from 8:00PM last evening AST/DR-Time.
Conditions o the Highway out off our East are quiet favorable for stormy developments,
as there is actually zero wind shear out there(Over the Caribbean Sea, yes, we have high wind shear) and most of the Dry Air is located towards the N of the Prime Path.

Could warmer waters create high pressure zones that push tropical storms South this year

At this moemnt the Atlantic High is very strong and biiig,
it def forces storms of any kind on the southern lanes and does not allow to turn Northwards,
as we already saw with Beryl.
Without the strong wide High Pressure up North Beryl would have walked NWwards over some part of the greater Antilles instead of heading all the way W to Yucatan.
The Waters in the Tropical Atlantic, our Highway, from Wester Africa to the Caribbean, are very hot,
which allows storms fast intensifications and to reach highest power levels, even despite some dry air and over the medium range high wind shear,
also seen with beryl.

I am not sure if it helps your calculations, but I was at the beach this weekend in New Jersey specifically, Avalon and the water was very cold. It was about 68°.

Water Temps at Beaches do not matter.
Storms build up and fuel on open waters far out, so the important temp factor is the Sea Surface Temperatures Out of our East and in addition the heat content/means how Deep high temps(26C+) do reach below the Sea Surface out there.
