Tropics and Hurricane Forecast
Not too much currently, but the warm waters and favorable conditions suggest an active season ahead.  I anticipate the emergence of named storms possibly around mid June.

There's a small area of low pressure that will follow a typical tropical storm path this weekend, which I'm monitoring to see how it develops. It's unlikely to produce anything dramatic or generate significant surf, but it's still worth observing as it could serve as an indicator for the behavior of future storms.
