Weekly ENSO discussion

They says we have ENSO neutral conditions. They say a transition from neutral to La Nina is possible withing the next 3 months.

The anomily for NDJ is 1.1. Nov was the peak & OND was 1.1 as well, Jan average itself is +.5 ~ it would have to dive really hard for DJF to average us to an offical neutral.

Anomilies are -.2 in regions 3, -.1 in region 3,4. -.4 in region 1,2 (a change of .8 in one week) And +.5 in region 4.

The # that counts is region 3&4, that principal (now) # stayed the same at -.1 this past week. Current condition is neutral. For the Neutral to be offical it has got to come from the average of 3 months. So offically it most likely would be atleast March for it to be offical neutral ENSO conditions.

The ESPI jumped from -.04 to -.30 for the last 30 days ( in the last week)... Good bit of cold still lurking below the surface.

I hope everyone's having a Happy Monday, been productive here, so just getting a look at things. Quickscat of the front edge of low.


Top right is capturing the storm up north over the great lakes. Bottom right is the low over TX, notice the lower layer is much drier than above.

Hey Ally, I hope your weekend was as good as mine:) It was overall one of the exceptional ones while not leaving the state.

That low over MX is brings some bad weather to TX. Seems a little farther South than what the gfs had forecasted. Have to see where that's at in the morning. Ally that's hopefully your & mine next gentle rain. It's getting dry here...

Jacob is about to make landfall about where George hit & only 3 days later. Hang tight people just a little blow compared to the last one.



200+ homes were evacuated in S. Calif. near Los Angeles as a fire has gotten way outta hand.

Our chance at severe storms has near ended. Looks like it did fire up some over the Atlantic a little.

Watch the fog overnight, could be thick again over low lying areas especially near bodies of water. The fog was wild thick in spots & eary wispy in others from Indian River county to Palm Bay around 2am lastnight.

Highs in the upper 70's tommarow.

Thanks everyone for coming by & keeping stuff updated & bumped while I's off playing:)

Rand~ I think I still have too much pollen in the trees for much rain either. Good luck to those from Orlando to the Cape & north. If ya get it, just maybe severe. Thanks for keeping the locals up on the weather...

Michael~ Thanks for posting that EH2R, I'm quite the follower of his temp predictions. That's pretty scarey sounding as far as a hot year. 1st it was the warm winters, spring & fall have fallen suit as this last winter just overall really blew records away. If this trends into summer at some point, with such extremes...


Trey show review from Langerado Music Festival in South FL

3/9/07 Langerado Music Festival

Sunrise, FL March 9, 2007 08:14 PM

Set One:


Shine
Alive Again
Tuesday
What's Done
Money, Love And Change
A Case of Ice & Snow
Mud City*
Push On 'Til The Day
Plasma
Dragonfly
First Tube

Encore


Drifting

Show Notes:

*with Ivan Neville on keyboards.
Trey was beside himself with our weather, after being in Vermont all winter he was most thankful to be playing in warmth.

Unlike us to do only one day of a festival but it was close & over priced. Caught Bela Flec, moe & some other bands. Widespread Panic doesn't play til Sunday night, so I'll have to catch them in Orlando or something. They searched & seazed food & drink apon entering forcing sales from most over priced food venders ever. Very limited expensive camping there, sold out long ago. 10s of thousands had to come & go everyday with their cars which really conflics with the scene's promotion of living green. Hence our day trip. It needs moved down the road to Big Cypress Indian reservation, awesome venue, room to sprall & all camp. Let people bring food & drink & the 100's of other venders would turn a much better profit with better community support.

Was recommed this site for renewable energy. I've yet to look through it. & I met a chic that converted her VW bus to run on straight used vegtable oil, that she got for near free & got 5 miles to the gallon more using.

Good Fun:)

Thanks {{Auburn}}. It's over Spain, doing good. I heard it's gonna service Nexsat:), one of my favorite weather satalites.

Sadly my pics sucked. It's not as bright as a shuttle, new camera. Look like orange or red streaks & dots. I'm gonna upload the pics of the potting shed I painted instead.

Then I gotta pack up for tommarrow. Off for a pilgrimage to Trey:))

Fshhead~ I'll have to see the new movie when it comes out. Yeah there's an area for the media to step in. Didn't sound like they got real involed in CA either.

Thank You so much Scarlet~ awesome ride there, brought back memories especially being to the heavier tight metal, for the tough stuff. I think that really gets them strutting & few would dare:)

Skye I posted it before, when I watched that movie I got real pissed off to say the least...
The media really needs to start REPORTING on alot of stuff that was in that movie.
BTW.... heard on the radio today that they guy who did that film is going to do new movie, "Who saved the electric car" I think Tesla's founders should be at the TOP of that list for sure!!

Oh yea seen the movie "who killed the electric car". Tell everyone I know to watch it.
I gotta say this, the electric car is the way to go. Just look at how its been blocked & kept quiet all these years. That proves to me right there that it IS the answer!!!!!!!

Well even the guy that designed the battery for GM's electric car...he had no idea that GM was gonna shelf his battery & keep a lower grade one in the car after they bought the idea. They were gonna sue him for farther promoting it. He learned his lesson. Luckily had other great ideas like the solar shingles & got them on the market. Though I saw where that company (like many others) are being sued for impinging on another companies market. It's bogus law suites but the court costs eat at the little company & investers are wery of a little company being sued. I really see how the court system has slowed & stoppped things from progressing.

Have you seen that movie?

After seeing "who killed the electric car" last week, as long as they refuse to sell out to the big auto makers...

Funny you should mention that. Thats what I have been thinking lately. The Tesla IS a reality, should be hitting the streets real soon here. Once they really start getting the publicity, thats when you really have to start worrying. I do think that these guys are "patriots" & will not sell out but, thats my opinion. We will know soon thats for sure.

Fshhead~ yeah I understand, 2005 conditions were just neutral & a little on the cold side. Those warm waters around & just south of Fl aren't of any comfort. Those could be blamed more on the recent drop in shear. If shear picks up they will cool.

Find a company I could invest in Tesla? I looked around looked like big trusts with big minimums, but I could have looked closer. After seeing "who killed the electric car" last week, as long as they refuse to sell out to the big auto makers...

Good Morning Everyone & Rays:) You made a littlin happy with the gif & Ally too.

Local weather looks great, highs near 80s interior, a little cooler on the coast. Only hazards expected in the next several days is fire & rip currents...big waves are on the way!

fshhead got me thinking about the duldroms


Some early storms in the E Pac wouldn't suprise me at all. That one little spot off Africa that has been overly warm is due to a duldrom that just won't leave.
