2012 Atlantic Hurricane Season Birdseye Discussion #84B (Special Update)
...AUGUST 22 2012...11:05 AM EDT...
This special update serves as an update statement about tropical wave Invest 96-L...located to the east of Tropical Storm Isaac.
As of 11 AM EDT...the National Hurricane Center has upgraded Invest 96-L to tropical depression ten. If this becomes a named tropical storm by 5 PM EDT today...we will tie with Tropical Storm Jose of 2005 as the earliest tenth Atlantic tropical storm on record. The mention of breaking (or tying) this record was brought up during the intro section of discussion #83.
Return to special update #84A for my most recent thoughts on Tropical Storm Isaac. Up-to-the-minute lastest information on Isaac...including watches and warnings...can be found on www.nhc.noaa.gov...or by local statements made in your area's meteorlogical service and or media.
Return to full discussion #84 for an update on the rest of the Atlantic tropics.
