If there is no tracking map, just a blue page with 'No Tracking Initiated', then the tropical cyclone was not tracked on this site due to the following reasons :

i) the cyclone never became a tropical storm or hurricane (we only track named storms here), or

ii) the storm was never considered to be a threat to land by the NHC, or

iii) no-one was here to do the tracking e.g. holidays, work commitments etc.

21st July, 2010 08:00 News

For the north Atlantic...Caribbean sea and the Gulf of Mexico...

1. early morning satellite images indicate that the shower activity associated with the tropical wave moving across Hispaniola has become less organized. Consequently...the air force reconnaissance mission has been postponed until tomorrow. A tropical depression is not expected to form today but environmental conditions are still favorable for some development as the system moves toward the west-northwest at about 10 mph away from Hispaniola into the Bahamas on Thursday. There is a high chance...60 percent...of this system becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. Regardless of development...locally heavy rains and gusty winds will continue to affect the Virgin islands...Puerto Rico and Hispaniola today and will likely spread over the Turks and Caicos islands...and the Bahamas during the next couple of days. The heavy rains could cause life-threatening flash floods and mud slides in mountainous areas.

Elsewhere...tropical cyclone formation is not expected during the next 48 hours.

However...environmental conditions are expected to be favorable for tropical cyclone formation as the system moves west-northwestward at about 10 mph during the next day or so. There is a high chance... 60 percent...of this system becoming a tropical depression or a tropical storm during the next 48 hours. Regardless of development...locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds will likely affect the Virgin islands...Puerto Rico...the Dominican republic...

7th July, 2010 20:00 News Update

For the north Atlantic...Caribbean sea and the Gulf of Mexico...

1. A large low pressure system located about 290 miles southeast of the Texas/Mexico border is moving west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph. This system has become much better organized this afternoon and evening...and thunderstorm activity has become more concentrated near the center. Two noaa reconnaissance aircraft are currently conducting a research mission in and around the disturbance...and information received so far suggests that a tropical depression may be forming. Environmental conditions are conducive for further development and if additional organization continues...then forecast advisories will be initiated later tonight or Thursday morning...which would require that tropical storm watches or warnings be issued for portions of the coastal regions of central and lower Texas and northeastern Mexico. There is a high chance...80 percent...of this system becoming a tropical cyclone. This disturbance is forecast to bring locally heavy rains and gusty winds to portions of eastern and southern Texas and northeastern Mexico over the next few days.

Showers and thunderstorms have become a little more concentrated about 300 miles east-southeast of the Texas/Mexico border...near the southern portion of the low pressure area. Conditions appear conducive for development and a tropical depression could form before the system reaches the coast of northeastern Mexico or southern Texas on Yhursday. There is a medium chance...50 percent...of this system becoming a tropical cyclone. Regardless of development...the low is forecast to bring locally heavy rains and gusty winds to portions of eastern Texas and northeastern Mexico during the next few days.

1. Showers and thunderstorms continue in association with a broad low pressure system centered over the northwestern Yucatan peninsula of Mexico near Merida. The low is being investigated this evening by two noaa aircraft conducting a research mission around the system. Data from this mission indicates environmental conditions remain conducive for some development of this disturbance during the next couple of days as it moves west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph. There is a medium chance...40 percent...of this system becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. Heavy rainfall and gusty winds are possible over portions of the Yucatan peninsula during the next day or so.

1. A small low pressure system has moved inland over south-central Louisiana about 25 miles southeast of Morgan City. Now that the system is over land and will move farther inland tonight...tropical cyclone development is no longer expected. There is a low chance...near 0 percent...of this system becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.

Interests should monitor products issued by their local national weather forecast office for additional updates and any watches or warnings.

2. A broad area of low pressure over the northwestern Caribbean sea and the Yucatan peninsula continues to produce widespread cloudiness and disorganized thunderstorms. Upper-level winds are forecast to become more conducive for development...and a tropical depression could still form over the next couple of days as this system moves northwestward at 10 to 15 mph. There is a medium chance...30 percent...of this system becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.

NOTE: there are now two disturbances currently being watched by the National Hurricane Center. 95L.Invest is now the most significant disturbance of the two that may become tropical storm Bonnie within the next few hours as it heads onshore near Caillou Bay.

1. A small well-defined low pressure system located about 50 miles south-southeast of Borgan City Louisiana is moving onshore Terrebonne Parish near Caillou Bay. Doppler radar and satellite data indicate that sustained winds near tropical-storm-force could occur across Terrebonne Parish...especially in Terrebonne Bay...late this afternoon and early evening as the system moves onshore. There is a high chance...60 percent...of this system becoming a tropical cyclone before it moves onshore. This system will move slowly northwestward after landfall and produce locally heavy rainfall over portions of south-central and southeastern Louisiana. Interests should monitor products issued by their local national weather forecast office for additional updates and any watches or warnings.

Although there does not appear to be a closed surface circulation at this time...nearby ship and buoy observations indicated winds of tropical-storm-force briefly occurred in association with this system during the past few hours. Environmental conditions are conducive for development of this disturbance as it moves generally west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph...and a tropical depression could develop during the next couple of days. There is a medium chance...50 percent...of this system becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. Locally heavy rainfall and strong gusty winds will be possible over Grand Cayman island and much of the northwestern Caribbean sea over the next day or so.

comment: 95L.Invest seems unlikely to become Bonnie, so we are now concentrating on 96L.Invest in the Caribbean which appears to have a better shot - image to follow.

2. Showers and thunderstorms associated with a tropical wave over the northwestern Caribbean sea have become a little better organized and surface pressures are beginning to fall in the area. Conditions appear favorable for some development of this system as it moves generally west-northwestward at about 15 mph over the next couple of days.

This low is expected to move generally west or northwestward at around 5 mph over the next couple of days. Strong upper-level winds are currently inhibiting development...and there is a low chance...20 percent...of this system becoming a tropical or subtropical cyclone before it moves inland late Sunday or Monday.

2. A tropical wave is producing widespread cloudiness and numerous showers and thunderstorms over the western Caribbean sea. Environmental conditions appear favorable for some slow development of this system as it moves generally west-northwestward at about 15 mph over the next couple of days.
