This is my first blog post. We have quite a bit of activity in the tropics now, on August 14, 2011. As Franklin dissipated, tropical Depression 7 takes over. It could become Gert, while heading towards Bermuda and out to sea afterwards. Behind Gert lies yet another wave which could become Harvey as it heads up behind TD7. In the EPac, we have an invest at 70% chance of development for the next two days, and one closer to Mexico at only 10% for the next two days. The Western Pacific has slowed down after their hot streak, and currently no storms are active there. The rest of the world remains quiet as well.
