TS Arlene - Surprised or No Surprised Formed Today Early in April.
Note I said earlier this morning I wouldn't be surprised.
I'm sort of surprised anyone is surprised.
Truth is the fuel was there (warm water)
The center was definable.
Models were iffy and disagreed.
I figured a girl's got to do what a girl's got to do...
Honestly from a meteorological point of view not surprising.
But the NHC Discussion seemed surprised.
Rather than decreasing in intensity...
(as per earlier discussion)
Arlene developed with 45 MPH winds today.
Discussion below states their surprise..
See yesterday discussion when it was still Subtropical.
The point is ...
Things happen fast in the tropics sometimes.
Remember that later on in the season.
Nice tight little storm.
Found it's sweet spot.
Nice wardrobe .. lots of convection.
Then sailing away into history.
Losing the reds tonight.
Arlene might just be a footnote in the 2017 Season.
Weather is awesome.
Might have an interesting PS to this named storm.
Suggestive discussion in the wind.
Long day by me. Went to see my father-in-law who is frail, but still kicking. Spent time with some family members than went to the beach with a best friend who lost his mother last month. Surf was whipped up quite nice at Dania Beach and down by Hollywood Beach. Cool air, warmish water and a steady breeze. Walked around the nature center in Dania. Sipped a Pina Colada on Hollywood Boardwalk. Talked. Trying to enjoy every minute. Life is short, politics is crazy, the news is nuts and often people are nuttier. You got to savor the moment. And I did. Sorry for the late update...
