Reminder: VoIP Hurricane Prep Net – Saturday 9/2/23 Canceled – Atlantic Tropical Update – Saturday 9/2/23 – 920 AM EDT

Hello to all…

With the recent VoIP Hurricane Net Activation for Hurricane Idaliya and the Labor Day Holiday weekend likely having many folks traveling to visit family and friends, the VoIP Hurricane Net for Saturday 9/2/23 is canceled. Our next VoIP Hurricane Prep Net will be on Saturday 9/9/23 at 800 PM EDT. The following is the Atlantic Tropical Update as of Saturday 9/2/23 – 920 AM EDT:

In the Atlantic, the only land affecting system is Post Tropical Cyclone Idaliya bringing tropical storm force conditions to the island of Bermuda. After passing Bermuda, Idaliya is expected to go out to sea only affecting shipping interests. Gert regenerated into a tropical storm and we now have Katia, also a tropical storm, but both Gert and Katia are out in the open Atlantic and no threat to land. Therefore, other than Idaliya affecting Bermuda with tropical storm force conditions, no tropical system is expected to affect land over the next several days.

There is a tropical wave in the Eastern Atlantic that could develop into a tropical depression as we get into the middle of next week as it moves from the Eastern Atlantic to the Central Atlantic Ocean that will be our next system to watch for potential land impacts presuming it can develop. Any land impacts wouldn’t be until late next week at the earliest so there will be plenty of time to monitor the progress of this potentially developing system.

Advisories on Idaliya, Gert and Katia and the Tropical Weather Outlook highlighting the tropical wave in the Eastern Atlantic can be seen off the Atlantic Tropical Products menu selection on the web site, via our voipwxnet Facebook/Twitter feeds or the National Hurricane Center web site at the following link:

The VoIP Hurricane Net Management Team continues to monitor all developments in the Tropics. Our thoughts and prayers are with those significantly impacted by Hurricane Idaliya in the Southeast US and we hope their recovery is quick from that significant hurricane. We hope everyone enjoys the Labor Day Holiday Weekend and we will catch everyone on the next VoIP Hurricane Prep net on Saturday 9/9/23 at 800 PM EDT. Thanks to all for their continued support of the VoIP Hurricane Net!
