Watching Waves and Wicked Weather

Watching the wave today as it cruises towards the islands. It's still a big wave and because of that you have to watch the whole wave axis to see where if anywhere it actually develops. I would say the northern track is out of the question, but I don't think anything is out of the question this summer. And, yes it sure feels like summer doesn't it?

IF it would have developed I could see it being pulled up more in latitude, but since it hasn't I would guess it will shoot through into the Caribbean and be a real possible problematic weather maker later next week as it nears the Gulf of Mexico. Have to watch the high setting up in the Carib to see how far west it goes as opposed to being lifted up towards the Gulf where conditions may favor development.

Meanwhile, if you gaze at the world above you'll see the real weather is up in the American Mid-west. Watching NE Iowa this morning and wondering how much bad weather my son may get in Postville later today.

Three people are dead in Minnesota this morning as the system that was in Oklahoma and moved into Arkansas has moved towards the NE by way of the Plains. A lot to think on as to the coming hurricane season and how the patterns are setting up and the hurricane season is coming really soon. Summer Solstice is coming up too, just realized that. In thinking out loud mode today.

So, watching a breeze here ripple a few of the branches outside and wondering if I will get weather anytime soon. My younger son now is able to forecast weather faster than his older brother as he has two steel metal weather indicators in his arm from that accident this past January. He's a human weather man... amazing.

So, as my Shuky watches the radars in Postville I'm going to worry less about Puerto Rico today and plan what I am making for Shabbos tonight.

Question is...where do I want to spend the summer solstice? Key West seems far away right now...

Again a very bad weather system that has caused misery wherever it went this past week is back on the center screen for more action today.

Whatever you do this weekend, make it a good and enjoy the weather... or put on a good Jimmy Buffett CD and pretend you are partying away in the islands somewhere.
