Tropical Storm Alex 2022
Satellite images, weather maps and tracks of Tropical Storm Alex 2022, May 31 - June 7. Max wind speed 70mph.
Alex has not produced any deep convection near its center since last night. It's surface circulation has also become elongated and ill-defined. Based on these factors, Alex is now classified as post-tropical and this will be the last advisory. The initial intensity is set at 60 mph (50 knots), assuming a little weakening has occurred since this morning (June 6), though this is uncertain due to a lack of recent ASCAT or surface observations.
Alex is moving quickly toward the east-northeast. Another non-tropical low or trough is forecast to develop to the northeast of Alex tonight. While there is quite a bit of variability in the details, all global models forecast that Alex and the other low will merge within the next 24 hours or so, so the NHC forecast now shows dissipation at that time. The baroclinic system that results from that merger is expected to strengthen and could produce hurricane-force winds over the north Atlantic by midweek.
