Prime Time in the Tropics ...
Well that's one way of putting it....
.. needed a headline and will go with that one.
www.flhurricane.com never hypes weather
Try not to connect them...
Looks like Mother Nature won this game.
Really can't make this up...
Morning Visible of #1 Near Africa.. Central Atlantic.
Now designated as Invest 94L
#2 Our Sneaky Caribbean Wave aka 93L
Kind of elongated in the morning visible.
No you aren't seeing double.
Looks a bit like it split in two.
Just keep watching..
Part of it can be seen on San Juan radar
Let's put this into perspective..
And our local home grown small x in the Florida Straits
No Invest aka "What the Heck??"
Probably the best loop to show ...
...flared up fast last night.
Using a good site showing close ups of South Florida
Let's zero in on this area...
NHC got that X right ...spot on.
Close of the little swirl...
... convection blown off.
Think of those models with gowns that fly out on one side
Wish I had that gown but I digress
When you have good legs you should show them off.
Digressing. Trying to maintain sanity...
Putting together these 3 areas as to development locations
Okay so somewhere in the Central Bahamas...
...development is not expected.
Later today we will discuss MJO and why it's so action.
I guess we could call this the Hurricane Season
Prime Time in the Tropics
Models for 93L are shown here with the satellite image
And I included water temprs and wind maps.

BobbiStorm's Bottom Line:
I need a shower.
I need coffee.
I need my package from FEDEX
Need to blog on this later.
What you don't see on the NHC sit is Upper Level Lows
ULLs swirl and spin in the tropics also
You know if you connected all the Xs you would get this...
Your Hurricane History Lesson for Today :)
More complicated than Hermine.
Much more dangerous than Hermine.
But a developed storm making loops.
Waves start out near Africa...
...travel WNW often up near and over the islands.
Sometimes through the Florida Straits.
Sometimes Florida is in the way.
Better in the way of a Tropical Wave than a Hurricane.
Sometimes they aim their fury at the Carolinas.
Sometimes they make it into the Gulf of Mexico.
Hurricane Betsy did it all!
So right now we are just dealing with waves.
Breathe, sip some good cafecito...
Be glad this is not 1965
Miami Beach will have rain, it's September.
September often brings morning rain on Miami Beach.
It's how we tell the months usually.
Rain shafts form out over the Atlantic...
..move in showering people on Lincoln Road a bit.
We are used to it.
Then it rains later in the day as rain rolls in from the Glades.
Though this time of year Tampa gets hit hard.
The flow is usually out of the East.
I'll update later today.
Welcome to the real Hurricane Season.
NFL Football last night.
Shame Carolina lost...
.. guess I can root for Fins on Sunday.
