Areas to Watch
In addition to Isaac we are also tracking Invest 97-L in the Atlantic basin. We also have an active tropical system in the eastern Pacific. You can find more information on these systems by clicking on the links below or by reading our full Tropical Update article.
The above image is an overview of the Atlantic and eastern Pacific Ocean basins, based on analysis provided by Senior Meteorologist Stu Ostro (On Twitter | On Facebook) and Hurricane Specialist Bryan Norcross (On Twitter | On Facebook). Named storms, hurricanes, or depressions in either basin will be labeled on the graphic. Any other features of interest we’re keeping an eye on for possible development will be circled.
If there are areas of interest, you’ll find zoomed-in details in the next few images. Otherwise, we’ll provide perspective graphics on tropical cyclone climatology for the current month, as well as status updates on the season-to-date.
