There's the tropics on Friday.
Julia still a Tropical Storm.
Feisty system there.
Karl a Tropical Storm out to the far East.
Areas of interest in the GOM and near Africa.
If you look at some satellites it gets confusing.
Without the symbols you wouldn't be sure.
Karl has the convection.
Misplaced convection I believe.
New Wave has the shape.
What seems like an early premature tail.
In the old days when we had hurricanes ...
...that would roll off spinning.
This year has been for the most part...
The Year of Tropical Storms.
Though many feel it's the Year of Invests.
Often Mother Nature saves the best for last.
Keep that in mind.
This morning TS Ian is King of the Hill
Weighing in at 60 pounds.. I mean MPH.
He's going to see Europe.
Julia close to home really refuses to leave easily.
Stubborn looper like Hermine
You can see the front moving East.
You can see Julia trying to not go East.
Julia will in time lose this battle.
Convection keeps flaring up, refiring...
Ian disappears to the NE
Little flare up of convection to the ESE of Julia
And you can see the area in the GOM near the Texas coast.
Like Julia wants to develop close in...
A real theme this year.
Karl remains the unanswered question.
Models show it doing the typical CV track.
Chose the grid below to show you the system in the GOM
Worth mentioning again..
I can't tell you if we HAVE to worry about Karl yet.
But we do have to WATCH IT most definitely.
I'll update this afternoon.
Good times in Miami.
Lots going on.
Like the tropics.

Ps... there are car rental issues, breakfast issues.
Nonstop family whatsapp discussion.
Easier tracking the tropics.
Owe ya all a song.
Family is family.
You get together when times are good...
...you get together when times are bad.
Way better to get together for the good times, trust me.
Here's a song...for my family and my friends
