Tuesday June 23rd Update:

What was Sub-tropical depression Four has strengthen into Tropical Storm Dolly. This system is expected to weaken to a post-tropical system by Wednesday. Dolly is the 4th named storm of the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season.


This little swirl out in the northern Atlantic has developed into Subtropical Storm Four. The low pressure system is located about 320 miles southeast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts move east and away from the U.S.

Thunderstorm activity has gotten better organized this afternoon as the low pressure moves into warmer waters in the Gulf Stream.

This sub-tropical system is not expected to last long, and is moving away from the U.S. The forecast is for it to become a subtropical storm tonight, then weaken tomorrow. If it briefly becomes a subtropical storm, it would get the name Dolly.

Elsewhere in the tropics, things remain quiet. A huge plume of dust from Africa is moving west. This is typical for this time of the year. This dust helps to suppress tropical development. Long range out look, shows this dust over the Atlantic for a couple of weeks.

As the Saharan dust heads towards the U.S. it’ll give us some hazy afternoon skies but also some beautiful sunsets ahead as well.
