Tropics quiet except for disturbance 97L

By: Dr. Jeff Masters , 5:24 PM GMT on July 26, 2008

A tropical disturbance (97L) in the mid-Atlantic ocean consists of a closed circulation with one spot of heavy thunderstorm activity to the northeast. The disturbance is under about 20 knots of wind shear and is over waters of about 26.5°C, and there is some dry air to the west. These are very marginal conditions for tropical storm formation. Conditions will gradually become more favorable for development over the few days, but none of the computer models are developing this system. 97L will probably not affect any land areas, although Bermuda should keep an eye on it.

Can you imagine the backend money that those actors will make. Seems everyone now is trying to put out a remake of a classic comic book.

Cyber obviously you know more than I do about hurricane's and I know all about Charlie I was here and I had my parents in Fort Myers at the time...I'm not going to even mutter another word about Tampa and hurricanes because when I do I get knocked down for it.

Thats right! I feel safe here


- The City of New Orlenes, Pre-Katrina.
'So many missed, Camile and Andrew, we never had any issues, we are safe here here in New Orlenes from Hurricanes, non have ever hit us.' - Interview
by CBS news to a Family regarding Hurricanes.
I'm obviously no weather expert like so many on here but isn't it more likely for New Orleans to get a hurricane then Tampa/St Pete? Somebody told me 1 time about the Northerly pull in the gom...I just don't think we would get hit directly on...


Tampa's even more open to a hit. Lets take Charley for Example, the system was suppose to hit, what, Pensacola? Then the Cold front, little stronger than they thought, Pushed it right into the Florida Peninsula, It seemed at first Tampa would be Directly hit by a CAT 4 Hurricane, but thankfully the cold front was to close to pull it into Tampa.

That shoulda been Tampa's hint that we our not invincible to Hurricanes, and we were spared a Horrid fate, if Charley hit Tampa it would have been Pretty bad, even were Charley hit the Storm was one of the most costly storms in History.

i can honestly say that jacksonville is never gonna get hit. we r really in a place that is almost climatologically impossible to get hit. i know thats weird to say fot a florida coastal city but it sure seems like it.

I think I have a crush on TampaMishy :-)

I always hear that Tampa is long overdue for a hurricane. Especially late in the season with storms coming up out of the Carribean, they tend to bend right with all the fronts coming through.

remeber what mishy said. a hurricane will NEVER hit tampa
