Tropics Today & NHC Social Media and the Caribbean Awareness Tour.

This pretty much tells the story in the Atlantic.
The area that is trying to gel keeps getting torn apart by strong winds.
Everything is moving from West to East.

The exception on that is the area that rolled off the Carolinas.
It's at the top middle of the loop.
It is sliding along the coast but will go out to sea.

A lot of discussion online about this quasi system.

Note it's intrusion on our world before being pushed, sucked out to sea.

This shows the drama better.

Again note the EPAC in bottom left corner wants to get an early start.
Also note the very strong West to East push in the Pacific....

Then we have the issue of water temps hitting the appropriate degree.

Pockets of cool water still and nice pocket of warm water in GOM...
Not warm enough yet to go swimming in the water if you are truly tropical.

Interestingly there are pockets of anomaly cooler water along coast of Epac.

Mike has all these up on

Down the tropical road we may have to watch the GOM.
A random collapsed cold front and a flat pattern could be problematic.

Speaking of the Gulf Coast some Flash Flooding possible there.

For those wishing they were in Nola right now...

It's raining.

You can watch the rain fall on the cam to this song.

As for the National Hurricane Center...
They are knee deep in the pre-season information game.

Currently they are on tour in the Caribbean
The Hurricane Hunters Tour may be coming to a town near you soon.

Small little opps there.
Wonder who made that graphic?

Caribbean. Spelled wrong. At least they got Hurricane right..

Darn now I have this song stuck in my head for some strange reason..

Follow their Tour dates online on Facebook.

The good people at the NHC have latched onto social media...
...the way they latch onto their computers.
That's a good thing!!
Add a few to your Twitter feed as the season approaches.

And they are on YouTube.

They are every where...trying to get the information out to you!

So when that water warms up...
...and the winds die down.

You'll be in the eye of the media storm along with the rest of us.
