2010 Atlantic tropical season ready to produce "Alex"?

So far, two weeks into the 2010 Atlantic hurricane season, the tropics have been quiet. But that may change early this week as an area of low pressure over the north-central Atlantic has the potential to become the first tropical storm of the year - "Alex."

The National Hurricane Center indicates that conditions appear favorable for some strengthening in the next couple of days as the system moves west-northwest at 10-15 mph. The graphic above (courtesy of shows where various tropical computer models have this storm going early this week. As you can see, none re-curve it out to sea, but bring it towards the Lesser Antilles/Windward Islands of the eastern Caribbean.

We'll continue to monitor this disturbance and bring you the latest official information on the MWN Tropical page.
