• Even though Atlantic Hurricane Season officially ended November 30, the daily publishing of birdseye view posts continues due the subtropical low pressure system currently in the central Atlantic being monitored for subtropical or tropical cyclone formation. Regardless of whether or not it acquires the structure of a tropical or subtropical cyclone, it is strong enough to generate a large area of sea swells in the open central Atlantic.

Since 2012 on the now retired Weather Underground blogs, I have been posting annotated "birdseye view" charts of the Atlantic basin, with a detailed explanation and forecasting that references the chart.

While I now do these "birdseye view" posts here, I will continue to do comments at Yale Climate Connections via Disqus where the former Weather Underground community has moved to.
