Tropical Storm Claudette Forms in the Gulf of Mexico 50 MPH... Ana Firing Up and Bill Out There..

Tropical Storm Claudette has formed in the NE Gulf of Mexico as promised earlier. Upgrade to Tropical Storm status was based on Doppler radar however the planes on going in and will get more info so that the models will be "more better" so watch for updated watches and warnings along the coast of the Florida Panhandle. New data shows she has winds of 50 mph and has some running room to go so stay tuned.

Bill is cranking, trying to wrap convection into it's core... Ana is firing up convection suddenly close to her core, can she keep it up?

Again my problem with Bill is the strong area of convection in the SW band, on the Dvorak loop you can see what I mean... stronger weather down in that band than in the core but a storm of this size takes a while to get it's act together and then when it it spin!

Wide view of water vapor..

Please note the BLOW UP of convection in the Western Caribbean for possible development down the road!

New positions coming out at 2 and more discussion at 5pm.

Ana picked up speed and is really racing while Bill is moving slower as they separate a bit.

Stay tuned...

I hope that the storms do not cause any damage.
