I am disappointed by posts here that are mostly speculation without referencing the most authoritative sources. In this case.

Even that track is an estimated guess, especially at the 5 day mark. Don't be surprised to see that circle at the end sway to the east and the west as models change with time. Granted, I recognize the authority of the NHC, however it would be reckless to state that a 5 day track that is still in the GOMEX is the final word.

Geezzz I try to go out by the pool while its still "clean" and cook some fresh vegies out of the garden........

The only reason I posted that map is it gave a "time line" of where the system will be located...........that did not mean it would take that track.....I never said "this is the track" ......Why does everything have to be so black and white?

Tropical Depression Alex (Atlantic Ocean)

Expecting Alex in the Caribbean

Forecasters on June 25 had given System 93L in the western Caribbean an 80 percent chance of developing into Tropical Depression Alex, and weekends seem to always birth tropical depressions. The GOES-13 satellite captured a visible image of both System 93L and a second low east of the Leeward Islands that has a much lesser chance of development this weekend.

The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite called GOES-13 captured a visible image of System 93L and the second area of cloudiness and showers east of the Leewards in a satellite image on June 25 at 14:45 UTC (10:45 a.m. EDT). The satellite image was created by NASA's GOES Project, located at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md. GOES-13 is operated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

This weekend I will be spending it with our daughter for the fact that she plays on a traveling softball team…….I can only hope there will be many more weekends to come…….but I have a sick feeling about such weekends.

Tomorrow morning I will turn the helm of this thread over for the weekend to a solid ATS contributor and good friend Hx3………..Many may recognize his video feeds that many ATS members use to watch the oil coming from the bop……..

realitycheck.no-ip.info...

No doubt he will keep the thread updated with the latest………

WOW!! That image is horrific……….If (and I say if) that circular motion that appears to be forming does indeed intensify, Alex could become a monster……with rain bands extending like Katina’s...........Not good!!

That image looks like it could fill the GOM...not good...

We'll have to see how it condenses as it winds up though...

This Tropical System is NOT Alex...it 's named Tropical Depression #1 so calling it Alex is not correct....until it is officially named Alex then the name should be used...

Until then TD 1 should be used not to mislead people

Here's a link to very latest forecast map from the National Hurricane Center.
www.nhc.noaa.gov...

As you can see, it is not expected to curve far enough northward to impact
the Louisiana coast, or points eastward where the oil slick is located.

It's gets me how there are so many people who want so badly to see
worse-case scenarios. Not only with this oil disaster, but with every
challenge faced by mankind. The more I visit ATS, the stronger is my
belief in what the Bible says about the mental deterioration of mankind
as the end of the world (as we know it) approaches. Its kind of scary
to see it happening in real-time before our very eyes. -cwm

What is with all the attacks in this thread? The OP was simply speculating about the possibility of a the oil dister becoming worse if in fact the seasons first hurricane impacts the GOM.

As it turns out, the odds are Alex will hit the Gulf! Instead of trying to discredit Clouds for some fear mongerer, we should all be thanking him for his astute intuition! The guy knows what he is talking about! As always he backs up what he says with sound facts!

So if you have something of value to add, please do so! Otherwise quit your bitchin about the name of the storm, and every other menial piece of info.

Great job Clouds! Thanks for the heads up!

Actually, I live in New Orleans and am very concerned, definitely don't want this thing coming anywhere near here, or anywhere else.

But common sense should tell you that 5 day projections of a system are not going to be dead on accurate. Living my entire life here, you never took those projections as Gospel. There are wishcasters, but then there are also downcasters.

As the thread title states.......Headline News for the weekend of 6/26/2010..........It is official Alex is born.............

Not too sure why your posting such remarks of technicallity of when this storm transitioned from ONE to Alex?

The main concern in your post should be about what will the affects be with this toxic soup.............

It seem as if you may have some knowledge of hurricanes...........So please give us your take on what you think will happen if (theres my if) it crosses over the spill...............not in aspects of the storm surge.....

FORECASTER BEVEN

MIAMI, June 26, 2010
Tropical Storm Alex Eyed Near Gulf Waters
www.cbsnews.com...

(AP) Last Updated 7:07 a.m. ET

Tropical storm Alex formed in the Western Caribbean Saturday, and forecasters said it was unclear if it would hit the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami said early Saturday that the storm has maximum sustained winds of about 40 mph. Most storm prediction models show Alex traveling over the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico over the weekend, but they no longer have it going across the oil spill once it reaches the Gulf, hurricane forecaster Jack Bevens said.

A tropical storm warning is in effect for the coast of Belize and the east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, which separates the Caribbean Sea from the Gulf of Mexico.

It's too early to tell if the storm will hit the northeastern part of the Gulf, where the spill has spread over the past 10 weeks, Bevens said. While the current forecast track has the storm shifting away from the spill, Bevens noted that could change.
