A depiction of the current atmospheric conditions in the North Atlantic Ocean.

Legend:

  • Blue "H" - the location of the Bermuda/Azores high, a large semi-permanent area of high pressure responsible for many of the Atlantic's steering patterns.
  • Blue Arrows - the direction of low level winds
  • Red "L" - may be either organized low pressure systems, or remnant lows
  • Green Outlines - suspect areas and AOIs producing shower activity.
  • Green Separated Line - if the AOI is a trough, this line indicates its exact position.
  • Green Line - if the AOI is a wave, the line marks its position.
  • Red Airbrush - areas of dry air
  • Orange Lines - areas of wind shear 40 kts or more

Tropical Identifiers:

  • Red "Lx" - tropical depression
  • Tropical storm symbol - tropical storm
  • Hurricane symbol - a hurricane, the number inside the symbol indicates it's rating
  • Any of the above symbols with an "s" - a subtropical system
  • Red arrow(s) - forecasted path of tropical system
  • Yellow, orange, or red outlines - AOIs that have been targeted for formation probability by the NHC. See the NHC page for details regarding AOI color. For AOIs suspected by Hurricane Wikia or the TAFB, they are outlined in green. If the storm is indentified as an invest, its callsign will appear.

The original background image originated from GOES 13 and was then added to the CIMSS Atlantic Water Vapor imagery. Markings were added by using Microsoft Paint.
