This is a short post today as I'll be in transit this morning on my way to Florida. Bridal Shower for my soon to be daughter-in-law. You thought I was going for Earl didn't you? Come on... I know you are thinking that I'll be that much closer to tropical action in Miami. Smiling. Always good to be in Myami and see my kids and my friends and my tropical possibilities.
What you need to watch today is the above water temperature loop. As Invest 96L and 97L move rapidly West they get closer the warm water. Again warm water is only one part of the equation but in order to get water to boil... you need to start with water and then add heat. They also get further from their enemy SAL. Right now life is simplistic for them, if either or both develop then there are many details and technicalities to discuss.
Wanted to highlight Invest 96L is looking good this morning.
Impressively good all things considered.
Jim Williams from Hurricane City seems to like 96L better.
That could change down the road but tossing it out there.
97L has signs of life too.
Again 97L is hauling ass way too fast.
But the main point here is they have convection.
Need treat considering how dry the Atlantic has been so far.
You can watch 97L approach our side of the world.
Don't ya hate traveling on early flights?
You worry you won't wake up in time..
Then you wake up an hour early....
...and check the satellite loop.
I'll discuss models later today.
Going to be hard for Invest 97L to maintain a roll..
..while rolling that fast West.
Easy to discuss multiple destinations.
They have to make it past the dry air and cooler waters.
Then we have something to talk about.
Sorry for any typos..
..working on old computer as laptop is packed.
