Atlantic waves... Pacific has peaked

A nontropical low is over the Central Atlantic east of Bermuda & will move northeast over the open Atlantic.

A very quiet -- hardly even any cloud cover -- Gulf of Mexico...

The persistent tropical wave continues to weaken as it turns north within a high shear zone.  

Another tropical wave is following but at a lower/more southern latitude.  There's the potential for some slow development as the wave moves W/NW. 

Sometimes meteorologists use "telleconnections" to try to come up with a general long range forecast for potential tropical development.  The map below from CIMSS (Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Studies) shows the Pacific is now quieting down, but we need to watch for potential tropical development in or near the Caribbean within the next couple weeks.  Surface pressures remain generally low & sea surface temps. are plenty warm.

* "Wipha" -- is weakening as it sideswipes Japan.
