"Leslie" Lifting North; "Michael" (Not Buresh) Still in Central Atlantic, Strong Wave in E. Atlantic...."Leslie"
continues to battle dry mid & upper level air with a wide circulation & a serious lack of an inner core. "Leslie" will increase its forward speed to the north/northeast as a strong upper trough approaches. Despite a pretty raged appearance on satellite, "Leslie" could still strengthen with the help of the upper level trough. The storm will stay far to the east of the U.S. but will affect parts of Newfoundland the next couple days. "Leslie" will transition to a big extratropical storm by midweek over the N. Atlantic.
"Michael" (not Buresh!) is still hanging in there despite nearby dry air & increasing shear. The storm is likely to only move very slowly northwest then turn north & is no threat to any land areas.
A low latitude wave is moving into the SE Caribbean. Proximity to land (S. America) should limit any organization, but the wave is something to keep tabs in the long term as it moves into the Western Caribbean late week.
A strong wave is in the far E. Atlantic brought is rolling west & is likely to become our next named storm. All indications are this will be a recurve perhaps mirroring "Leslie" but farther east. Next name is "Nadine" (with a southern accent).
Sept. 10th is the peak of the hurricane season in the Atlantic Basin. If the wave in the Eastern -- soon to be Central -- Atlantic develops quickly, it's conceivable there could be 3 named storms in the Atlantic very near the average peak of the season. Good news: none of the storms will affect the U.S.
