Tropical Depression 13 Forms in the Atlantic
"THE DEPRESSION IS CURRENTLY IN DIFFLUENT FLOW ON THE NORTHEAST SIDE OF AN UPPER-TROPOSPHERIC LOW NORTH OF PUERTO RICO. THE POSITION OF THE TROPICAL CYCLONE RELATIVE TO THIS FEATURE SHOULD KEEP THE WESTERLY SHEAR LOW ENOUGH DURING THE NEXT 24 TO 36 HOURS TO ALLOW FOR SOME INTENSIFICATION WHILE THE DEPRESSION MOVES OVER WARM WATERS. BEYOND 36 HOURS...GLOBAL MODELS SHOW INCREASING WESTERLY SHEAR THAT IS LIKELY TO CAUSE A DECOUPLING OF THE CYCLONE. DISSIPATION IS FORECAST BY 96 HOURS...ALTHOUGH IT COULD OCCUR SOONER. THE NHC INTENSITY FORECAST IS NEAR THE SHIPS/LGEM OUTPUT THROUGH 36 HOURS AND THE NEAR THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. FORECAST POSITIONS AND MAX WINDS INIT 21/1500Z 28.0N 55.1W 30 KT 35 MPH 12H 22/0000Z 28.9N 54.1W 35 KT 40 MPH 24H 22/1200Z 29.6N 52.5W 40 KT 45 MPH 36H 23/0000Z 30.1N 50.5W 40 KT 45 MPH 48H 23/1200Z 30.4N 48.9W 35 KT 40 MPH 72H 24/1200Z 31.4N 46.5W 30 KT 35 MPH 96H 25/1200Z...DISSIPATED"
Looking awfully Lorenzoish to me..
Big picture... definitely can see it from outer space...
Can also see Raymond.
Pretty far south of "the front" that brought whispers of frost in outlying areas to the Piedmont.
Note the next bigger "FRONT" should push it out to sea. What's going on down by South America...wow. And Raymond getting stronger.
