The Atlantic Basin has been very inactive the last couple months due to the Saharan dust. This isn’t very out of the ordinary, and now that we are approaching the second week of August, we should start seeing more activity.

A tropical wave is located along the coast of Africa bringing disorganized showers and storms. This will move WNW at 15-20 mph across the Atlantic over a favorable environment. It is possible for this to become a tropical depression, by the middle of next week.
