The NHC monitors 3 tropical waves, including one in the Caribbean

It’s been a month since Tropical Storm Colin appeared off the coast of South Carolina, an unwanted guest of July 4 weekend plans.

Since then, while tropical waves have arisen in the Atlantic and the Caribbean, the tropics have been calm.

Today is no exception.

While monitoring three tropical waves, the National Hurricane Center take up the same words that have come up regularly for a month: “No new tropical cyclone are expected over the next five days.”

There have been four occasions in the past 30 years when the Atlantic hasn’t seen named storms between July 3 and Aug. 3, according to Philip Klotzbach, a meteorologist at Colorado State University.

Part of the reason tropical activity has been quiet in the Atlantic Basin, especially relative to the Pacific, is the presence of Saharan dust in the air.

Heat, dryness, and strong winds associated with dust clouds have been shown to suppress or weaken tropical cyclones.

There have been three named systems in the Atlantic so far this year, with the next named storm being Danielle.

In the Pacific, Tropical Storm Frank is expected to turn post-tropical later today as it slowly moves further into the Pacific more than 700 miles southwest of San Diego, California.

Tropical Depression Georgette lost tropical storm status on Monday as it meanders off Baja California.
