Tropics heating up
With Hurricane Gustav not being as bad as they predicted, doesn’t mean that you should stop paying attention to the activity in the tropics.
As you can see from this image below, there is lots of action in the Atlantic.
Tropical Storm Hanna is expected to become a Cat1 or Cat2 Hurricane in the next day or so, and one forecaster is predicting (or as I’d like to call “guesstimating”) that they system may eventually hit the NYC Metro area and pummel us with tropical storm-force winds and heavy rain by this weekend. We’ll see how good they are.
Also in the tropics is Tropical Storm Ike, which models are showing heading into the Gulf of Mexico. Following that is Tropical Storm “Josephine” which just reached TS status.
Am I the only one that finds this stuff fascinating?
