New Yellow Circle Off Miami? Cuba? - 93L Elongated Near Islands - Invest 94L Introduced Models Show A Fish...For Now. Watch For Daily Menu Specials Tomorrow. Prime Time in the Tropics

Prime Time in the Tropics ...
Well that's one way of putting it.... 
.. needed a headline and will go with that one. never hypes weather

3 Xs
 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

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...

Visible below

NHC got that X right 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.
All on

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 :)
Hurricane Betsy.
More complicated than Hermine.
Much more dangerous than Hermine.
But a developed storm making loops.

Waves start out near Africa... 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.
