      Is there a correlation for tropical waves coming off the African coast above or below 15N making contact with the United States?

      Seems as though waves originating above 15N more frequently turn away from Florida where waves departing the coast below 15N seem to interact more with the S.E. U.S.

      Do not have data on this and just wondering if we have a long term data base confirming or denying any correlation?

      Thank you, Captain Max

      I don’t have data but it makes sense.  The prevailing westerlies are more in play.  New England and Bermuda would still be potential targets
