I went looking for that orange circle storm that you showed on your map lasertaglover.

I found some spagetti models... most look okay... doesn't make me all comfy but not too bad... but there's this one little spagetti line that make me a weee bit nervous.

I went to see who or what that one spagetti prediction was from and it was... NOGAPS... The U.S. Navy's Navy Operational Global Prediction Center System..... DOH!!!

Hmmm how accurate is the Navy?

We're in the Tampa Bay area, actually north of Tampa though... and during Hurricane Frances we lost the roof to our lania, our master bedroom window and about 4 large trees... and almost our dog... lol

So in our area it was much more then a rain event.

So I guess I was lucky back in the late 70's and early 80's when I lived just off Bayshore Dr with my parents. I do not remember anything about Hurricanes nailing us back then, but I do remember getting the cool tracking sheets every summer at the Publix grocery store.

However, I can just remember our Ford Grenada lightly covered in snow back whenever that happened in the late 70's. I have never been back, but we lived in this apartment complex with a giant banyon tree next to the Academy of the Holy Names. I guess I'm kinda curious if it is still there lol.

Anyway, back to the present...not much has changed with any of our storms or tropical waves at the 5pm update, but they are doing an intermediate advisory at 8, so we'll see if Danielle is a Cat 5 yet.

It is worrying to see this hurricane moving up the Atlantic. Lets hope it doesnt decide to shift this way and cause another 1987 event!!

Ok...

Danielle is now a Cat 2

Earl is up to 60 mph winds

That one wave has an 80% of forming, but from the visible satellite, it does look an eye is definitely there..so Hurricane status should be just around the corner as it starts to wrap around itself, and by the way Shrek fans..the next name for a storm is FIONA.

And there is a distrurbance in the Force....oops, I mean the Gulf, that has a 10% chance of forming...but it is going to drift back over LA bringing some showers, and more than likely ending any chance of formation.

Also, the Strompulse forecast models for Earl, but especially this new wave (Fiona), are all over the place right now:

I am not sure of the accuracy of the Navy.

However, as an Army veteran, many, many, many bad jokes come to mind...I need coffee badly, sorry, lol.

Haaa! I so know what you mean...

I have a bad habit of making jokes when I'm in high stress situations... you can always tell I'm getting nervous... I was a riot during the Hurricanes of 2004... family did say they wouldn't have wanted to be with anyone else during the disaster... oh yeah, I could have made money with my humor... ha ha

You lived off Bay Shore Drive... what a beautiful area... omg... I love Tampa Bay.... and how I love Florida.

Good googly moogly… look at this my hurricane hunters!

“The guidance continues to be varied. The ECMWF has not shifted south and is targeting the Florida peninsula for a landfall. The ECMWF Ens members show a significant cluster doing this and even making it into the Gulf, with some showing landfall over N Fl into Ga and the Carolinas.”

www.examiner.com...

Also it says, "A lot depends on the track and timing of Earl’s turn..."

Another great article OceanStone! It does provide a very good description of everything going on right now with Earl and that Atlantic. I am worried about Earl impacting the NE.

With so much going on, here is a summary of the latest:

Hurricane Danielle Category 1:
www.nhc.noaa.gov... ...DANIELLE MAINTAINING HURRICANE STATUS IN THE OPEN ATLANTIC
OCEAN...

Major Hurricane Earl Category 3:
www.nhc.noaa.gov... ...EARL CONTINUES TO STRENGTHEN...

Atlantic Low Pressure System (aka Future Fiona):
www.nhc.noaa.gov... ...AIRCRAFT DATA FROM A RESEARCH MISSION BEING CONDUCTED BY THE NATIONAL CENTER FOR
ATMOSPHERIC RESEARCH...AS WELL AS SATELLITE DATA...SUGGEST THAT THIS SYSTEM IS ALREADY PRODUCING TROPICAL STORM FORCE WINDS IN A SMALL AREA NORTH OF THE CENTER. ONLY A SMALL INCREASE IN ORGANIZATION OF THE SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY WOULD RESULT IN THE FORMATION OF A TROPICAL STORM...AND ADVISORIES COULD BE INITIATED LATER THIS AFTERNOON OR TONIGHT.

Eastern Pacific Wave:
www.nhc.noaa.gov... ...THERE IS A MEDIUM CHANCE...30 PERCENT...OF THIS SYSTEM BECOMING A TROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS.

I got this off the Weather Channel.

You can see how impressive Earl is, and how weak Fiona is at the moment. You can also see another wave recently come off the coast of Africa that might need watching as well.
