Madden-Julian Oscillation

The last month, what's known as the Madden-Julian Oscillation of the atmosphere has favored the Western Pacific with tropical storm formation, and depressed storms most other places. I've never seen a month like July 2018, where summertime skies were mostly-clear all the way between Florida and Africa, and summertime Atlantic tropical storm formation was non-existent.

That favorable pattern probably won't last the entire season, but every day without a tropical storm nearby is a good day.
