For the locals who have intrests in the area NOAA wants comments on the tropical cyclone hazards graphics before November 15th. Here's more on the product. Make comments for Wind Risk Graphic here & comments on the Threat graphics here. I was just gonna post the following but they go indepth a little. Shocked at the question ~ is it appropriate for us to be supplying these graphics.
I thought these graphics were great during Wilma & Ernesto. They couldn't be simpler to read, they're colorful & hot link easily where I could further diseminate the info in my blog. I think all the local NWS in hurricane prone areas should have them.

I'm back. Another great adventure, short of a total tent flooding. That blob in the gulf gave us several inches of rain Monday night when TWC had the area for a 1/4 inch that night. Lesson learned...don't spray an ageing tent with scotchgaurd. It seemed to remove all waterproofing.
Sifting though a bunch of pics from the trip. Uploading some new ones here from Pisgah Forest in NC & the Swannee River (enjoyed some Magnolia Fest).
Not only did I get to see Trey put on an awesome show in Asheville, I happen to run into to him outside the hotel:) Here's a clip from the show I was at, the song sand, Trey is just going off here. The video starts out a bit fuzzy & gets clearer. Very well could have been the dude next to me that shot this.
As the storms in the S. Hemisphere died away, the burner has been turned up on the Northern 1/2.
In the Alantic, invest 93L has crossed the Antillies & now in the Caribbean. Ramsdis has a good view of it. 25kts & 1009mb, according to navy~ It's up 5kts. The 12Zcmc is the only one developing it & over the Bahamas.
Other invests include one for the Central & west Pacific as well as one in the Indian Ocean.
There's CIMARON in the w. Pacific this one might bomb, 48 hrs ago it was named an TD now at 105kts, 938mb, aimed for land.
East Pacific has TD 18E, 1009mb, 25kts & is expected to move out to sea. It's convection has been blown away.
Most the models are calling for a cut off low from this last front, east of FL, maybe N Bahamas, in a few days. Also & the gfs has been hinting at this a few days now & a few others are jumping on board with a small intense looking storm for South FL or south of there or Keys or developing in very South GOM & moving toward SFL at the end of the 144hr run.
For the horse folk that frequent, how about the riot at the Tenneesse Walking Horse National Celebration? 150 people being held back by 50 police as they get their point across that the 6 of the 9 horses the federal inspectors failed for soaring be allowed to show in the final Campionship class or none will show. The stewards cancelled the class, rescedualed for Thanksgiving weekend & has now cancelled that too.
