The tropics remain unusually quiet. There are no hurricanes, no tropical storms in the Atlantic or Eastern Pacific. We have only “Flossie” – barely a tropical depression that is passing just north of Hawaii. Here’s a link to Hawaii radar. There are two tropical storms (no hurricanes/typhoons) in the Western Pacific (“Francisco” and “Lekima”).
