Breezy Carolina Beaches and Caribbean Convection
Breezy beach day today in the Carolinas as the flow around the area of disturbed weather moves closer to the coast and combines with an onshore flow raising the stakes in the pressure gradient sweepstakes and giving us all a wake up call for the Atlantic Hurricane Season of 2010!
And, while watching the system in the Atlantic trying to form I keep wondering what is going on down in the Carib?
Yes... sort of moving the wrong way but it is May and we are close to June and though June is too soon for the Cape Verde season it is not too soon to have moisture flowing in the Carib handing off tropical energy to the system in the Carolinas...
Much to think on while watching that oil leak out into the Gulf of Mexico... as someone in a town hall meeting said so simply, "you were drilling without a backup plan, what were you thinking?"
Jim Williams has been linking to a webcam on the oil leak if you want to sit a spell and wonder what were they thinking indeed....
