Disturbance Sixty Six is barely a ripple on the barometric map of the Atlantic. Frontal activity is pushing south across the Gulf of Mexico and east across the entire eastern seaboard, which more or less ends the show for the Caribbean, continental United States and Gulf of Mexico. There are still patches of warm water across the region and outbreaks of rising air, and a late local flare-up is not yet out of the question. More modellers are signing off now, but it is not a season to do make hasty announcements. A couple more days for this cautious old sailor.

The 2020 mission is almost over and the band is well into its final performance but not yet making for the exit.

Stand easy.
