Cantore A Coffee Nut. Someone Get That Man Some M&Ms & NOTE TO NHC PLEASE UPGRADE A TD
My take on the models.
Front center stage Hurricane Gaston.
You see that one right?
Far to the left is an area of tropical weather near Texas.
Some how that got lost in the TD9 shuffle.
Convection of TD 9 down near the Yucatan.
It's center is the red dot further to the North.
Close to Carolina is a cluster of convection known as TD 8
THEY HAVE NOT BEEN UPGRADED AS OF 8 AM FROM NHC
And off of Africa is a huge, big new wave.
Those are our Atlantic suspects in the tropics.
Front heading down to pick up Gaston.
That's the forecast.
The spin over Georgia is an ULL
ULL = Upper Level Low
It's forecast to draw TD 9 up to the NE
Lows follow lows.
Basic rule of meteorology.
Gaston may do a brief tour of the Azores.
Now let's look briefly at the Pacific
Those are two cyclonic storms.
Hurricanes headed West
Hawaii is in their way.
Hawaii is in the US of A so...
..USA is getting tropical trouble.
Continental US getting NADA right now.
Safe for now for Labor Day Weekend
Great wind map.
Use it.. play with it.
It was done by an art student who had to make a map.
She worked with meteorology, computer friends.
My son worked on it.
Not supposed to say that but ...oh well.
It's awesome in that after they made that.
Everyone made them but bigger.
Again don't need no hurricane hunters to find the hurricane.
TD 9 remains ELONGATED
Weather will be on the East of this system.
So Tampa, Naples...
Every city along the West Coast of FL will get weather.
No matter where it makes landfall as a ???
Carolina Depression (my girl) is closed tighter.
There is some sense of the wave off of Africa.
This is where we are at...
..waiting on upgrade.
If you are a Tropical Depression 9 Junkie
All of us are in ways weather junkies whether we have a degree, multiple letters after our names or mentions in the Wall Street Journal and Washington Post like me. Whether we live on Hurricane City or eat a steady diet of Spaghetti Models we are all weather junkies. I woke up briefly at 5 AM looked down at my phone like someone who knows they shouldn't have that last beer.. my stomach got tight, I debated... I put it down in hopes that by ignoring it I'd wake up to another named storm. Abrams called Cantore a "wishcaster"as he knows the planes are still out there it could get upgraded (8 not 9) and that's one of our oldest jokes. Yes, I know Cantore ..how he thinks.. when he talks he says things I'm just about to write and it's annoying as I'm afraid if I write it people will think I am typing what he says word for word. I'm not. I have the same tape playing i my head. And yes a new Invest is a Christmas in July often or a new flavor of M & Ms (what's with that? what's next biscuit and gravy M&Ms ??)
People are obsessed on this...
It's not just Mike and Jim and Jim and Mike ..
...arguing over TD 8 or TD 9 deserving the name.
(biggest name for weather guys ...don't know why)
Somewhere two guys are arguing over iPhone or Android.
And my best friend Sharon is waiting on Facebook for me.
To argue about the Upper Level Low thing...
So stay tuned.
I'll update when there is something to say....
(that's a horse of another color)

Someone at TWC get him some M&M Coffee

Note I do update thoughts in real time on Twitter.
