That's because around us (Aruba, Bonaire & Curacao) the water temperature is slightly cooler than to the north of us. You can see that in the water temperature maps on weather.com or wunderground.com.
Nos a scapa, pero pami e ta logico.
But what I don't understand is why there's no Hurricane warning or at least a hurricane watch for the Yucatan peninsula. Ivan is very close to the Yucatan, and still going west!!!
I agree with you on the Yucatan peninsula, but then the forcasters have been claiming Ivan would turn north all along, and instead it's headed W to WNW at the most. To me, if a storm is heading west and has been for several hours/days then you owe it to whatever lies west to warn them,
Originally posted by itcI understand how/why the eye missed us, but what I don't understand is how the "tropical storm" missed us as well. No real winds, minimal rainfall, etc when we were 90 mi. from the eye ....

Warn in both directions and admit you don't know rather than "predict" false information. It could save lives. I don't know about Aruba, but Curacao was nowhere near ready should Ivan have actually touched us.

I am thinking this storm is the same that hit Texas in 1900. I think this storm is going to head northwest.
