The Atlantic tropical season officially ends on November 30. While it’s been pretty quiet lately, there is one area that the National Hurricane Center is flagging for likely development in the next week. Fortunately, it looks like it will not affect the Southeast except perhaps for Puerto Rico and possibly some rain in Florida (although what is happening now is due to a Gulf low that is not tropical), but it shows that conditions are still good for tropical development if the dynamics are right with so much warm water in the Gulf. We will continue to watch since there have been tropical storms that have developed in December and even January, but at this point, nothing else appears to be on the horizon.
