Tracking the Tropics: It’s quiet overall – The National Hurricane Center is not expecting further development from two small areas in the Atlantic Basin. In fact, Saharan dust will track across the Atlantic and move to the Gulf Coast next week. This will keep tropical activity at bay; however, it may cause air quality to lower a bit.
