There is a weak tropical wave that is being tracked (AL97), but no signs of spinning up any time soon. In the Pacific, the West (asian side) is creepy quiet. On the East (Mexico) side, Maria is a very powerful hurricane, and the long-lived Karina, now a tropical storm, meanders in the outflow. Here’s the big picture:
As a reminder, our R&D system updates the status of tropical cyclones (hurricanes, typhoons, etc), earthquakes, and volcanoes hourly here.
