Tropical Weather Synopsis - August 13th, 2010

By: nyhurricaneboy, 8:37 PM GMT on August 13, 2010

The Atlantic Basin’s tropical activity is fairly uneventful… for now. The following three areas threaten to heat things up once again and bare watching for the next week or two. The remnants of Tropical Depression 5 are currently producing some rain in the LA/MS region. The NHC has lost interest in this system for the time being due to the fact that it is over land. However, some computer models, namely the GFS, have been forecasting recurvature of ex-TD 5 due t...

Tropical Weather Synopsis - August 12th, 2010

Right now, the tropics are seemingly quiet. Tropical Depression Five is no more, as is Invest 93L. However, that does not mean that the tropics are lacking activity. Tropical Depression Five was demoted yesterday to a remnant low by the National Hurricane Center primarily due to the broadness of the circulation and the lack of any formidable organization or threat to land. It is interesting to note that ex-TD 5’s circulation has closed up somewhat and it is a ...

This is so bad that those who actually do post on topic statements get blasted by the trolls.

Invest 97LNHC Chance of Development: 60% (High)97L seems to have suffered from the effects of land interaction with Puerto Rico, and now looks like a splattered egg on the sidewalk on visible radar. Any convection that remains is poorly distributed as far as intensity goes, and there is no evident COC with intense convection. Therefore, chances for development indeed appear to be decreasing. However, I would like to point out that environmental conditions are nearly...

Invest 97L

By: nyhurricaneboy, 7:32 PM GMT on July 20, 2010

Invest 97LNHC Chance of Development: 60% (High)The tropics finally have some activity, as Invest 97L poses a threat to develop into the third tropical depression of the year as early as tomorrow. An evaluation of both the infrared and satellite imagery reveals a system with a reasonable convective structure. There is an area of heavy convection which appears to be moving toward Puerto Rico. Before discussing any more on the prospects for 97L, I would like to point o...
