Well we have seen Alex, an impressive organized storm that was hampered only by interaction with mexico. It intensified rapidly before both landfalls and it is debatable that it was actually a major hurricane before final mexico landfall.TD2 followed in it's wake, hitting southern texas instead and looking rather crappy through its lifetime (I hold that it should not have been upgraded to TD).Bonnie came shortly after, forming north of the carribean instead of in it...

Subtropical storms intrigue me, so I thought I'd do a post on it with my take, from staring at them for many hours. Here are my thoughts on 90LSTSs form from a trough digging and then cutting off, and I believe it is going to do so tonight through tomorrow morning.7 hours ago, you can see the edge of the clouds tilting just west of north, with the center of circulation on the end of this line.Now, you can see an almost due west orientation, with the center beginning...

With the first stirrings of the tropical season, I thought I'd resurrect my blog. I found out today that potentially the EPAC season could start 15 days early, and/or the Atlantic season could start nearly a month early! I know at least three models that support this, but I'll use the GFS since I find that the most trustworthy, and it also goes out the longest (Though remember, you should always take model forecast with an entire shaker of salt 7+ days out).So, see ...

I thought I'd post some stuff here in case someone happens to stumble on my blog. 2009 Atlantic Hurricane Season... It was quieter than most, but some very interesting storms, such as Grace, a subtropical storm that nearly hit Ireland, and Ida, a carribean storm that tracked slowly north, became a cat 2 and eventually a nor-easter, and then an extratropical gale that slowly moved east and could be tracked as a separate entity as far as the Black Sea, almost a month ...
