    They're lining up in the Atlantic.
    TD5 looks like it'll go ahead and develop and hit somewhere between Miami and the Outer Banks.
    Tiresome and ridiculous - and way early.
    Wonder what September/October are gonna be like?

    In its own right its gratifying as well.. we have so many of the "it won't hit here" types around here who are not saying a lot this year. They've suddenly become a lot more concerned about storms and securing items than they were a year ago. :)

    It's awfully early for storms to form in the Atlantic where TD5 is and for storms as powerful as mine was. At least, I won't have to see my name up there again. At least not in my lifetime.

    Unless we go all the way through 5 more years as they recycle them every 6 years - or do they take a name off after its been a major hurricane - some names are retired, all were major 'canes, what about the minor ones?

    Minors are recycled, majors are retired.

    Yeah TD Emily plus the 2 other blobs behind it coming off Africa. At least I'm still buttoned up from Dennis. I'm thinking the plywood isn't going to come down anytime soon.

    Who needs windows anyway? :wink:

    The models for this one are all over the place ranging from headed to MX to North FL/GA if you extrapolate them, the current track is on the north side of that headed to either nick the bottom of FL/Keys or hit SE FL, but give it a couple of days to see which way it goes. The front that might have swung Dennis has moved offshore and so now there is only a little influence of the Bermuda high and whatever comes across the US through this week - didnt see anything incredible there, that could influence this one, hence the reason the models are so much more splayed out than during Dennis.

    NHS sez...
    "While There Is Presently Some Easterly Shear With This System...as
    Well As Marginal Thermodynamics...the Environment Is Expected To
    Become More Favorable For Development In Both Regards Over The Next Few Days. Given This...slow But Steady Strengthening Is
    Anticipated Over The Next 72 Hours...and The Official Forecast Is
    In Good Agreement With Ships And Gfdl Guidance. The Gfdl...which
    Develops The Depression Only Slowly At First...continues To Make
    The Cyclone A Significant Hurricane In The Caribbean."

    Hopefully it will keep moving quickly and not have too much time to stand still and intesify!

    IF it does go where the track states, hopefully running through Haiti and then all the way up the spine of Cuba will hopefully take out a lot of its power, not of course wishing anything more on any of the folks there, but that "could" be the outcome given the current guess forecast. However reintensification could occur when it gets back in the Gulf (the track currently seems to go west of FL again - lucky Gulf coast people you guys are up in the northern Gulf areas :wink: ), but its still very early to see which side of FL or whether it goes straight up the middle.

    5pm report:
    Could it be that the NOAA guys are also kind of unhappy about how much work they are having to do with tropical weather so early in the season? I really do like the opening line though "GOOD LUCK FINDING A CENTER IN THE DEPRESSION THIS AFTERNOON." :wink:
