If the past few seasons have taught us anything, it is that there is no longer a typical season. Were there to be, this next week or two would traditionally be the phoney season, or more accurately the calm before the storm. June can be rather a slow month once the first storms have heralded the new season. The next storm of the 2021 season absolutely won’t be today – it almost certainly won’t be tomorrow – but thereafter is anyone’s guess. One or two of the more reliable modellers see nothing developing over the next week, but I consider that a brave statement at this time of year.

What little remains of ANA is now lost in Atlantic anonymity. High pressure dominates the convergence zone with a fairly featureless pressure profile across the region. Today and perhaps tomorrow, stand easy.
