I wanted to leave a link for The Big Picture blog post on "Stormy skies"... Some amazing photography here! Enjoy!
Also, the long range models are starting to pick up on some tropical activity in the Atlantic basin! While you can't trust the details, it is at least starting to show what I believe will be an active August, especially by about August 7-10th on! The MJO should swing back deep into octants 1/2 by then! We'll see what happens?
