Great idea! S&F. Should see if they can sticky it for the season so it doesn't get lost. Going to be an interesting couple of months me'thinks!

I'll start the first one, being that the Gulf is filled with Oil this may make for a very interesting Hurricane Season. Agatha already devastated Guatemala and took 115 lives so it's not starting out so great.

I'll start the thread off with this one, but want to give credit where credit is due:

Great Idea for a thread, should be the place to be for the 2010 season, look forward to it, here's another great site by the way for tracking...

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.

That's the remenants of Agatha that is now Invest 91. It's taken a heck of a jog southeast in the past few hours. I'd rather get it here -- in any form -- than for it to go the the Gulf. We'll hope for that.

Crown Weather Services is what My County's EMA uses as its one stop shop for all the tropical weather info you can want.

www.crownweather.com...

I don't know if you have seen that site but its a Hurricane Chasers Dream.

Although I wouldn't wish it on anyone, it'd do great to just stay over open water and go fizzle out somewhere

I just added a really neat free software based hurricane tracker in the OP under the resources section

I hope you are right I live on the MS gulf coast and I rode out Katrina at my county's EOC and it was bad. I am on the List for avtivation and the ESF 9 Coordinator so if a storm threatens I will have the info before the Media does and so will ATS!

If we get a TS while there is still oil in the GOM, the MS and LA marshes are done. New Orleans will be a coastal city by 2012.

According the the PDF from NOAA, the oil will have little effect on the Hurricane season...

Hurricanes & Oil Factsheet

It's an interesting read...

We're a wee pair of islands, mostly rock. All the excess water rolls off the edge. I usually hope for us to get it, rather than the big island -- Grand Cayman -- which is largely swamp/mangrove and no elevation.

I don't want to have to rebuild stuff again as we did after Hurricane Paloma kicked our butts in Nov. of '08, but I'd rather that (no loss of life here) than the Gulf get it. For what it's worth, some of the wx pundits that I respect are calling for the invest to fizzle in the midst of the profound windshear ahead of it. We'll hope for that. Please. CIMSS shows a propensity toward 30 kt. windshear for the next three days. Link to CIMSS windshear

Thanks for what you do. I would do the same here if we had any cohesive organization. here, SAR means trying to call your friends and relatives on a cell phone.

I like Crownweather. They've stayed current many times in the past while others were *cough* sleeping. Wunderground does a good job too, with their staff wx mets. Lots of info on CIMSS.

Yeah I have dealt with my fair share of rebuilding. After Tropical Storm Bonnie, Charley, Frances, Ivan, and Jeanne in 2004 I worked for a Non-Profit 501c3 organization called Rebuild Polk After Disaster. It was a MyFlorida.com Hurricane Mitigation program for low income home owners in Polk County. I was a Case Manager which involved a whole scope of duties. I saw my fair share of devastation. I was on the FEMA Disaster Recovery team for Polk County. Low-level mind you, none the less, if it happens again I wouldn't hesitate.

It's the unrepairable damage that got to me the most, personal possessions can be replaced. It's the memories of living through Hurricanes that are hard to replace.
