Apparently, there's so much energy stored in the tropical ocean that hurricanes are just forming in the Western extent of the Atlantic and slamming into Florida, Texas, Mexico and other places where I don't live. So, everything's hunky dory.A WEAK SURFACE LOW PRESSURE AREA AND AN UPPER-LEVEL LOW NEAR THE
FLORIDA PENINSULA ARE PRODUCING A LARGE AREA OF DISTURBED WEATHER
OVER THE WESTERN ATLANTIC...PORTIONS OF THE BAHAMAS...AND PORTIONS
OF THE FLORIDA PENINSULA. SURFACE PRESSURES ARE SLOWLY FALLING...
AND A SUBTROPICAL OR A TROPICAL CYCLONE COULD FORM OVER THE NEXT
DAY OR TWO AS THE DISTURBANCE MOVES WESTWARD ACROSS FLORIDA AND
INTO THE GULF OF MEXICO. REGARDLESS OF DEVELOPMENT...THIS SYSTEM
WILL LIKELY BRING SHOWERS...SQUALLS...AND LOCALLY HEAVY RAINS OVER
PORTION OF FLORIDA DURING THE NEXT DAY OR TWO.
DISORGANIZED CLOUDINESS AND THUNDERSTORMS EXTENDING FROM THE
LEEWARD ISLANDS NORTHWARD FOR SEVERAL HUNDRED MILES ARE ASSOCIATED
WITH THE REMNANTS OF INGRID. UPPER-LEVEL WINDS ARE NOT FAVORABLE
FOR REDEVELOPMENT OF THIS SYSTEM.
I've still got a bad feeling about those Ingrid remnants, but we may slide through the end of the season scot free. Now, when do you think the end of the season will be? I'll put 100 shares of special non-voting decorative shares of 'Fears and Frets' on Valentine's Day.
