Questions in the Tropics. Questions on Winter. So Many Questions. Time Will Tell the Answers. Waiting on Thunder & Listening to Music

With regard to the remnants of Patricia ....
...that fused with the various atmospheric conditions

It's name became FALL STORM.
You see when its worthy of a name.. it gets one.

It's moisture spread out into the atmosphere.

Look at how man places got rain from this #FallStorm

Kind of awesome. 
And that is why we love weather.
Up close it's intriguing.
The larger scope is compelling

Charleston flooded again.
Partially rain and high seasonal tides.
Again this was an issue since the beginning for Charleston.
It's called the "LOW COUNTRY" for a reason.

People ask me if it's all over in the tropics?
My answer is yes and no.

In general the rhyme is right and October is all over.
But the season goes to November 30th for a reason.

Will we see a wayward, westbound Kate?
Or a zig zag "which way do I go" Kate?

Generally November storms are in the Caribbean...
...and then catch a front out of the Caribbean

But there is no real norm for November.
As El Nino is strong still it has tended to shut down development... GOM and Caribbean.

Is there anything out there right now we can watch?

Yes but chances are low it develops into anything.
But there is what to watch.

A healthy wave is approaching the islands.
You can read about it below.

Personally I'd keep watching fronts that stall out close in the land.
Just been that sort of year. Go where we have seen formation this year.

You need a real hard working system.
Nothing is going to be handed out on a silver platter this year.
Any system will have to work for it.
That said... it's possible. I wouldn't rule it out.

Winter is working over time to make an early entrance.

It's been a watery October.
There must have been something in the water...
Rain and floods.

The big question many are wondering on is...
With a strong Southern Jet and an El Nino Winter what will the South see?
Does that moisture translate to cold rain, snow or ice?
People in the Deep South contend with hurricanes and sometimes winter storms.

Hard work builds character and success... if you don't give up.

Where I come from..

In El Nino Winters ... Winter gets a leg up from El Nino.
The flow of the fronts moves across the South.

What becomes of that "wet" is the big question.

A lot of people are talking but it's just talk right now.
Remember when they said we would barely have a season because of El Nino?
They were wrong. We did. It was moderated by El Nino ... but we had a season.
No one told Joaquin about a quiet season. 
No one told the families of the 33 people who died on El Faro.
We got up to the J storm when many thought we wouldn't get past the F storm.

As often North Carolina seems to sit on the Mason Dixie Line of weather.
Too far South for snow storms.
Too far north for ice storms.
Sometimes they get slammed with storms.

Who knows? 
Time will tell.
Right now it's still Hurricane Season ....

I'm in the "marginal area" today for strong weather.
Some talk on possible thunderstorms and a random twister.
Or just steady rain.

Lastly there is a saying in the Bible about rain in the right season.

"I will send you rain in its season, and the ground will yield its crops and the trees their fruit"

The problem with winter storms that come early is trees are top heavy.
They still have their leaves. Add snow or ice and they fall over.

You can follow all the seasons on 

Rain or snow or the busy tropics... it's all there.
And so am I ...watching the tropics and hoping for a thunder storm today.

If you need to get somewhere.. 
...stick with a Country Boy ;)
