Tropical Depression #7. Friday Aug 10, 2012.





Tropical Depression #7 (soon to be Tropical Storm Gordon?) continues to battle dry air to its north. This dry air is originating from the Sahara Desert in Africa and is being in-trained into the storms circulation, which is effectively keeping the storm from strengthening into a Tropical Storm.

TD #7 continues its rapid pace westward at 23 mph this morning. This too is likely inhibiting the storm from strengthening. The storm has sustained winds of 35 mph and the central pressure is down to 29.80 inches of mercury, or 1009 millibars.

 Not much overall change is forecast with this storm over the next couple of days. In fact the storm may weaken back down to an easterly wave in a couple of days as it encounters stronger southerly and southwesterly wind shear, and continues its battle with the dry air.

 Forecast models are calling for the ridge of high pressure to the north of the storm to weaken in about 4-5 days, and this may allow the storm to strengthen as it moves across the warm waters of the Caribbean. Its interesting to note that this storm is moving along westward very near the track of Tropical Storm Ernesto.
