A Look at the Tropics - June 15th


With a look at the Tropics on this June 15th, there are a few areas we're still keeping an eye on. Out in the Atlantic Basin, we still have a disorganized area of rain and t-storms in the northwestern Caribbean. While heavy rain could persist through the weekend, the environment over the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico isn't conducive for this to develop. Unless a drastic change in the setup occurs, the chance for development remains very low at 10%. Over in the Pacific, we have a dissipating system along with another tropical storm. The remnants of Bud will dissipate throughout the day tomorrow over western Mexico. The remaining moisture from the system could bring some rain into the southwestern U.S;. and as far north as the central Rockies. Just off the coast of Punta Maldonado, Mexico lies Tropical Storm Carlotta. It only has sustained wind speeds of 40 mph along with heavy rain/t-storm activity. It'll continue to move toward the coast Saturday morning and it should either weaken or dissipate as we head into Saturday night.
