Tropical Roundup. 1 Volcano and 3 Tropical Waves. A Killer Volcano in Guatemala - Again I'd Take a Hurricane Anytime

I'm currently in the general Miami area on vacation with my family and while here looking through rare books on Hurricanes and how they impacted for both good and bad the growth patterns of the area. There really isn't much solid happening in the tropics as far as tropical development; the big news in the tropics yesterday was the volcano on our part of the world that stole the news headlines.  It is such a big story and will have it's own odd impact possibly down the road that the NHC listed it in it's main features of it's Tropical Outlook; that's something you don't see every day.

This is an ongoing story and any revelations of the death toll are preliminary and a moving target so to speak as this unfolds. I'm wondering on how the smoke and ask (if it continues) could affect development in the Caribbean more specifically possibly the Gulf of Mexico as the ash goes where the winds take them. See you worry on El Nino or La Nina and compare sea surface temperatures and salinity and in truth at any time Mother Nature can throw a wrench into the equation. More on this later in another blog update.

I spent most of yesterday with my brother down in the Keys looking through old book stores that had the most awesome history of hurricanes in the area written by old timers whose families lived through them. I also interviewed many people as to how the Keys are recovering. I'll say one thing and that is money talks on many levels. Those with deep pockets hire people to clean up, repair and redecorate the landscape. Some homes look as if they were just built and the landscaper just left and other homes look like the they come from the land that time forgot. In general it's beautiful but the scars are there and the area doesn't need to be reminded of the start of Hurricane Season.

The Caribbean has been on watch for development.
In about a week to 10 days.
Watching 3 waves in the Atlantic.
Watching development off the East Coast.
All of the above are potential areas.
The Volcano is the real thing.
In our part of the world not Hawaii.

Keep watching.

I'll update more later today.

As usual awesome info, you really have a way of getting the facts across. Interesting how your volcano ash monkey wrench figures into the equation.
