With Labor Day so close and the models showing storms ahead people seem particularly nervous this year after the assault of storms in the last two years. Looking around the Space Coast of Florida the fears look justified with at least a few blue tarped roofs in most neighborhoods, occasional business signs still blown out and general disrepair in some areas hit hard last year.
The Atlantic tropics are coming back to life too.
A storm is rolling off Africa that looks like it should pull together as it couples up with the Atlantic. It has been declared as Tropical Depression Six. Looks like it may become a hurricane, probably affect the Southern Cabo Verde Islands. Getting harder to tell what it will do after that. A few models take it on a long adventure over much of the Atlantic.
There is also a waves to watch approaching Cuba that could potentially effect Florida, Louisiana or Texas. Below is the current Two-Day Tropical Outlook from National Weather Service.
Compared to some years it's not looking too bad for our somewhat typical holiday weekend of hurricane activity. The storm trying to form from the tropical wave near Hispanola, doesn't have much model support to become something stronger but looks gamely. Maybe good to prepare for heavy precipitation in Cuba, Florida and along the gulf coast, including Texas.
Tropics are alive across the Northern Hemisphere. The West Pacific is leading the way with three invests and four cyclones. 22W Soulik is the newest storm, it may hit southern Japan. Hector is the oldest and a shadow of it's former structure. 21W.RUMBIA20W.BEBINCA&19W.LEEPI are all affecting land. Lane is in the Eastern Pacific and may come near Hawaii.
Below is self updating graphics for the Atlantic. Subtropical Ernesto was named today. A wave from Africa has pulled together enough today to be designated 99L. Models have it going through the Caribbean or running into South America. Some intensity models have it as a Category Two storm in four to five days.

The many glaciers in Northern Pakistan are feeling the heat of climate change. One in the Gilgit-Baltistan province burst with melt sending a torrent of water through Badswat village. Homes, roads, bridges, crops and forests were swept away. The village was evacuated in time by the authorities and is reported that no one died. A local, Baz told the Thomson Reuters Foundation, "Surrounded by mountains and muddy water, it seems we are living between life and death,". This is the first time in living memory that one of the glaciers in that area has had such an outburst of melt.
