Tropical Update – November 17, 2020

Our look at the Tropics continues to show some activity as we continue through the middle of November. In the Atlantic Basin, Iota was once a dangerous Category 4 Major Hurricane before it made landfall along the coasts of Nicaragua and Honduras. As advertised, Iota has weakened back down to minimal tropical storm as it sits over southern Honduras. It’s holding on to sustained wind speeds of 40 mph as it continues to move to the west at 12 mph. By Wednesday morning, Iota should be no more. In the southwestern Caribbean Sea, we’re still waiting for a broad low to develop. While some slow development is possible once the low forms in the next few days, it has a 30% chance of becoming a tropical depression within the next 5 days. Even if this future low doesn’t become a depression, this low will bring periods of heavy rain for areas from Nicaragua down into Colombia. In the Eastern Pacific, Tropical Depression Twenty-One-E has formed with sustained wind speeds of 35 mph. As it continues to move to the west-northwest at 12 mph, some development could lead this to become Polo by Wednesday morning. With the track keeping this over open water and having it weaken by Thursday, this system doesn’t seem to pose a big threat.
