African easterly waves (AEWs) are areas of low air pressure that move westward across North Africa and into the Atlantic Ocean. AEWs can cause intense thunderstorms, and, once over the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean, they may become tropical cyclones that might affect the Caribbean and North America. In summer, many AEWs form in, […]
