800 AM EDT SUN JUN 13 2010 FOR THE NORTH ATLANTIC...CARIBBEAN SEA AND THE GULF OF MEXICO...

1. A BROAD AREA OF LOW PRESSURE LOCATED ABOUT 800 MILES SOUTHWEST OF
THE SOUTHERNMOST CAPE VERDE ISLANDS HAS CHANGED LITTLE IN
ORGANIZATION. HOWEVER...ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS APPEAR CONDUCIVE
FOR SOME SLOW DEVELOPMENT OF THIS SYSTEM OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF
DAYS AS IT MOVES WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 10 TO 15 MPH. THERE IS A
MEDIUM CHANCE...30 PERCENT...OF THIS SYSTEM BECOMING A TROPICAL
CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS.

ELSEWHERE...TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION IS NOT EXPECTED DURING THE
NEXT 48 HOURS.

I'll be keeping track of this, let's hope it falls apart, not grow into a hurricane.

But even a small tropical storm could have serious consequences.

With the way things have been going, though, I suspect we'll see the invocation of the umpteenth corrallary to Murphy's Law:

"There's no situation so bad it can't get worse."

Ugggh.

Great. Now everytime a storm or depression develops, apparently even thousands of miles away out in the Atlantic, we'll 'need' a new thread or 3 to rouse panic. May this 30% chance thread get 487 flags, 1540 comments, and make the front page tomorrow...

It's a shame those BP idiots haven't sealed the thing and moved on, because normally huge storms actually clean up a spill. If a major storm did sweep in they'd have to disconnect whatever rigs they have hooked to that thing and it would be counter productive.


Suggestion: How about you change the title now to 2010 Atlantic Hurricane Watch Thread, so that we dont have to see hundreds of these threads all year every time someone hears thunder. It isnt too late to do this, apacheman.

Here is a really good weather site
with many related things like air quality (well weather related anyway)

www.intellicast.com...

If this storm forms and causes aggrivation to the oil situation then everyone will know to watch for the next one

It will take one to happen to know for sure so I think it is a giid Idea to watch how it goes

Thanks for the post - I know we do have to watch the weather conditions, it will have an impact on lives.

If an actual tropical cyclone does develop in the next 48 hours it will be the record breaker for furthest storm to develop east in the month of June. This system is defying climatology as it has been organizing in area of high upper level wind shear. Regardless of development of this system it tells those of us who really watch tropical weather that we could be in store for one hell of a hurricane season.

I've seen less impressive storms classifed as a depression. This is defying climatology.

i wonder if a lightning strike would ignite the oil. if it does you can be damn sure HAARP was behind it.

1. CLOUDINESS...SHOWERS...AND THUNDERSTORMS ASSOCIATED WITH A BROAD
AREA OF LOW PRESSURE LOCATED ABOUT 975 MILES SOUTHWEST OF THE

ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS APPEAR CONDUCIVE FOR ADDITIONAL SLOW

FOR THE NORTH ATLANTIC...CARIBBEAN SEA AND THE GULF OF MEXICO...

1. A LARGE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM LOCATED ABOUT 975 MILES WEST-SOUTHWEST
OF THE CAPE VERDE ISLANDS IS PRODUCING WIDESPREAD CLOUDINESS ALONG
WITH SOME SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. THIS DISTURBANCE CONTINUES TO
BE WELL-ORGANIZED AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO

A HIGH CHANCE...60 PERCENT...OF THIS SYSTEM BECOMING A TROPICAL

LOCATED ABOUT 1375 MILES EAST OF THE WINDWARD ISLANDS HAVE BECOME

A little good news...not much, but I'll take what I can get these days.

Hopefully it will continue to weaken.

I'll keep updating as they release reports.

I was thinking that it was abnormally close to Africa to be forming an actual storm this early in the season. Typically, the storms that come rolling off Africa don't happen until later in the season when the water is warmer.

Or, at least that's what I always heard when I lived in Key West.

This is valid information to have and to share. Thanks, OP. We all have a right to post here, even if some individuals don't want to read about it. Perhaps if one isn't happy with the topic of a thread it should just be ignored. Just a friendly thought.

Looks like we've dodged a bullet on this one, thank goodness.

Hope I haven't spoken too soon, every day without storms is a gift right now.

that would be some expensive and complicated way to set the oil on fire


someone tell bp a match will work also

but with all the corexit dispersant it will be hard to set on fire
because most of the oil is beneath the surface
