A little about my self -

I joined weather Underground in August of 2005 right after they opened the blogging feature. I have been a weather hobbyist since the middle 60's when I lived on the west coast of Florida, north of the Tampa Bay area. I currently live in a small community in central Illinois.

I have been through numerous Hurricanes during my life time. The worse being Hurricane Camille in August 17,1969, A Cat 5, where the eye passed over the location I was at. That being Biloxi, Ms when I was in the USAF stationed at Keesler AFB.

Navy has designated 97L as TD 7 now .. will to see if the NHC will call it at 5 ..

97L starting to merge with the tropical wave to its east this afternoon .. this could cause 97L to intensify by capturing the waves energy and moisture and become much larger ..

A larger storm would likely be drawn northward along the trough that is moving toward the east coast ..

but this is not the usual year so before committing to a track I will wait until it is called a TS ..
