Tropical Outlook for the Week of October 5th
-As expected, Joaquin has tracked well offshore the U.S. eastern seaboard, but indirect severe rainfall impacts continue in the Carolinas where over 20" of rain has fallen in spots. This precipitation will end and Joaquin will become extratropical in the north Atlantic in the next several days. -A tropical wave in the central Atlantic is not expected to develop this week, and tropical cyclone formation is not expected in the next 5-7 days. -Over 85% of the hurricane landfalls in the U.S. have occurred prior to this date, so significant tropical cyclone impacts will become increasingly unlikely over the remainder of the season.
Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance. --Confucius
