SSTs in the Caribbean have been capable of sustaining a TC since May. Last time that was the case -- at least immediately around us -- was in 2004.
Right now, I'm watching the invest to the west of the Cayman Islands. Models are initialized and tracking somewhat northward of Cuba, although the
convection center of circulation has jogged down more toward the Cayman Islands in the past four hours. yep. I stay up on the internet all night
when something is in our arena.
I saw something earlier that I haven't seen in quite a while: convergent winds -- low level clouds moving from the west to the north, and also low
level clouds moving from the east to the north. What does it mean? I don't know if it means anything, other than a "wandering" wind which is
sure to tick off my wind generator. Last time I observed this was 2006, although I hasten to add that it could've easily have happened many times
since without me seeing it.
Hello, I'm Argentus, junior weather weenie. I'm really hoping that no 'canes or TCs work their way into the GOM before the oil is cleaned up,
although I can't imagine any way that oil mitigation will happen so quickly, even with the 'international response' heralded by President Obama.
