The reason for its growth and why it took so long for the graduate

Alex took the time to turn into a storm because of the dry winds in the Atlantic region and the strong winds blowing at high altitudes.

Even the development of this storm, which lacked the strength to turn into a hurricane, caused great damage. As the sea was much warmer and higher than average, this condition helped to increase the level of humidity in the atmosphere, and as a result, the areas where it reached the system received higher rainfall.

In general, tropical cyclones are classified The storm formed due to a wind speed of 93 km to 112 km per hour In Central American Kyrgyzstan, which caused Hurricane Agatha (which was the strongest for a month from May 1979), in addition to the impact of the warmer ocean surface, at 28 to 30 degrees Celsius, the influence of Oscillation Madden Julian, he is strong and in the 8th phase, and indirectly By the eastern waves.

In addition, Sahara dust is approaching the region, and this may partially prevent hurricanes in the Caribbean due to wind speeds (variation of winds at different levels of the atmosphere) and increased air intake. Sahara dust could also reach South America significantly from June 11th.
