2022 Tropical Weather Update: Some Saharan Dust moves in this weekend, tropics remain quiet

July 15
Still no active storms nor potential areas of tropical development in the Atlantic basin. We’re watching a cloud of Saharan Dust make it’s way into the Gulf of Mexico that could end up here in SE Texas.

The dust cloud could be here in Southeast Texas by Sunday or Monday. Allergies and Asthma could flare in sensitive individuals.

We are monitoring a low pressure system in the northern Gulf of Mexico. The National Hurricane Center gives it a 0% chance for tropical development, but it will likely send several inches of rain into the Gulf coast from Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle.
We’re also monitoring a large plume of Saharan Dust. That dust plume will move through the Caribbean early this week, then into the Gulf by the end of the week, and could be here in Southeast Texas by Sunday or Monday. Allergies and Asthma could flare in sensitive individuals.

A decaying boundary moving in to the Gulf will create an area to watch in the coming days for potential tropical development. The odds right now are low, just 30% over the next 5 days. Where this low forms and tracks will ultimately determine whether we get rain or more scorching heat.

Bonnie is on a weakening trend in the eastern Pacific, down to a Tropical Storm now with continued weakening through the weekend. This system will have no impacts on Texas.
The Atlantic Basin, which includes the Gulf and the Caribbean, remains quiet. A large swath of Saharan Dust in the Eastern Atlantic is helping to inhibit storm development in that area.
