Atlantic Tropical Update – Monitoring 2 Areas of Interest

29 Sep 2021, 3:35 pm

It remains active in the tropics across the Atlantic Basin as the National Hurricane Center has 2 highlighted areas of interest. This is in addition to the newly developed Tropical Storm Victor and already-existing Major Hurricane Sam in the Atlantic, which is expected to send big swells to the Northeast Caribbean through the end of the week.

1. Remnants of Peter

A well defined low pressure center is associated with the remnants of what was Tropical Storm Peter. The system is moving through the North Atlantic, currently east of Bermuda. Shower activity has become less organized over the last few days, along the the low level circulation. As this low moves north into high wind shear, it is not expected to have a good chance to develop and will likely be dropped from the outlook shortly.

2. Invest 91-L

The more westerly circulation (91L) associated with a broad monsoonal trough will still have a chance to develop in the days ahead between Sam and Victor.  However with Victor being larger and more powerful at this moment, we could see Invest 91-L struggle to get organized in the shadow of a larger storm. However, some development may be possible, even if it doesn’t look all that promising.

Forecast models are struggling to where Invest 91-L will go, but don’t expect much strengthening regardless.

There is only one name left on the 2021 list of Atlantic Hurricane Season names. The World Meteorological Organization has a supplemental list of names when Wanda becomes named! This is instead of the greek alphabet used in the past, which was determined to be too confusing.

We are just past the peak of hurricane season in the Atlantic, but are still within a time frame climatologically where the typical number of named storms remains high.
