In the Eastern Pacific, Advisory #8 has been issued on Hurricane Blas, with the cone attached. It's currently a category-1 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 85 mph with a minimum central pressure of 980 mb. According to the NHC discussion, Blas is well-organized with very cold cloud tops near the center and impressive outflow in all quadrants but the northeast. The NHC forecasts a peak of 85 knots, or 100 mph, which is a category 2 peak.

For now, this is normal during a La Niña. The basin will significantly calm down in August when the North Atlantic takes over.

There are tropical waves in the eastern Atlantic that stand a chance to develop further as they are behind the SAL plume and wind shear has been lessening across the basin.

TS Celia, in the Eastern Pacific, may be choking on dry air at the moment, but its waves are setting off the volcanologists' seismographs. :)

Yeah, I don’t know if you have seen it yet, but the NHC has marked an AOI in the MDR.

Yes, I noticed. The current environmental setup and models indicate we are more likely going to see development. This would be called Bonnie and we could see a formidable system by the time it reaches the Lesser Antilles.

Especially in the Caribbean, models have been keen on really strengthening this thing once it makes it into the eastern Caribbean, which is unusual for this time of year.
