Funky Stuff Going On with Emily and Possibly Franklin...
Is it two, two, two waves in one or are they two different systems?
That and many other questions are being currently answered by the hurricane men in the flying machines. Inquiring minds want to know.
PR NWS is covering the wave carefully, as it may be in their backyard or hovering over it in a few days.
See for yourself. The wave to the East has a tighter circulation, however the one to the West has stronger convection.
Intriguing situation out there and it's happening in real time, live... which is why we love tropical weather.
Stay tuned... we should have an answer later in the day.
If there are two circulations, how will the handle it at the NHC and will they do the fujiwara dance around each other or will one go into the Carib and the other head off towards the SE Coast. Or, will one suck the life out of the other.
The problem is...IF the wave to the West has a closed circulation and TS force winds they have to post Watches and Warnings Immediately.... this is a time sensitive problem for the powers that be.
We should have the answers soon....
You look, what do you see?
Ps...note the following report from the Weather Bureau in Barbados
HERE IS AN UPDATED WEATHER BULLETIN
The Barbados Meteorological Services
at 3.00 p.m. on Sunday, 31st July, 2011
As we continue to monitor the progress of the low pressure system now located about 450 miles east of Barbados, current analysis and communication with the National Hurricane Center indicate that the development of the system has been retarded somewhat and there is no closed circulation at the surface at this time.
As a consequence of the above, the issuance of advisories has been further delayed.
However environmental conditions remain conducive for the formation of a tropical depression within the next 12 – 24 hours and reconnaissance aircraft will continue to investigate the system.
For Barbados, cloudiness will continue across the island with embedded showers, isolated thunderstorms and gusty winds. Although satellite imagery continues to show some marginal improvement during the night, occasional showers will still be around. For tomorrow, as the system moves closer to the region, conditions will once more deteriorate.
Above normal sea swells of about 2.5 – 3.0 meters will accompany the system hence sea bathers and marine interest should take all necessary precautions.
Residents in Barbados should continue to monitor further statements issued by this office.
