Dry air is fairly widespread in the main tropical region of the Atlantic basin at the current time (as is indicated by the brown-ish areas on the satellite image below):
No Activity for Now
The abundance of dry air in central and eastern parts of the basin and the lack of potential areas of disturbed weather farther to the west means that nothing imminent will develop in the Atlantic Basin.
No Change to Forecasts
The lack of current activity should not be interpreted that the forecasts of an active season will not be accurate. It’s too early in the season to make any such judgement on the forecasts–kind of like making a judgement on the forecast for winter based on the first two weeks of November.
While the forecasts may not verify, it won’t be because of conditions in the first half of July.
Summary of Forecasts
Jeff Masters’ blog has a good summary of 2010 Atlantic basin hurricane forecasts today.
The blog is a good source of information for those who want hurricane information without hype.
