As we approach peak season (late August looks very good from a Kelvin Wave/Climo point of view) Tropical Depression 11 (soon to be Josephine) has formed in the central Atlantic.

In terms of track the Euro ensembles currently suggest there will be a weakness in the ridge allowing a recurve so likely FISH food. 


In terms of strength the situation is a little complicated. From now until day 3 the environment is pretty good for strengthening and the NHC brings this to 60mph however at days 3-4 it will encounter moderate convergent shear  from the SW and quite a few models try kill it before shear potentially relaxes again (though still likely to be convergent and from the north which for a storm moving north means potentially cooler and drier air).


Storm currently has good banding but the core needs to be much tighter.
