    Another Tropical Storm???

    Something seems to be brewing in the southwest Gulf of Mexico in the Gulf of Campeche. If it does develop it will move north and could affect the Texas coast from Corpus Christi and south in a few days...

    Looks like it could become a tropical depression within 24 hours. The good news it's pretty close to land which will hinder it's development somewhat.

    The good news is the Eastern Pacific is active. It seems when they are active we aren't. Last year there were no tropical storms in the Eastern Pacific and you all know what we got!

    Is that anything like a million depressions?

    If we all stand and face east and blow like fury for an hour, would that keep it offshore?

    Thanks for the warnings you bring to the skating fraternity.

    I have already been contacted by the National Hurricane Center and they want to drop the patch skates into the next tropical storm as part of a hurricane dissipation project. The only problem they haven't solved yet is what to do with all the people that pass out over the Southeastern US

    A couple of interesting features in the Atlantic....

    A TROPICAL WAVE IS LOCATED ABOUT 500 MILES EAST OF THE WINDWARD
    ISLANDS. THIS SYSTEM HAS NOT BECOME ANY BETTER ORGANIZED TODAY...
    BUT STILL HAS SOME POTENTIAL TO BECOME A TROPICAL DEPRESSION OVER
    THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS IT MOVES WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 15 TO 20
    MPH.

    A LARGE AREA OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS...ASSOCIATED WITH A WEAK
    SURFACE TROUGH...CONTINUES OVER THE CENTRAL TO WESTERN CARIBBEAN
    SEA... HISPANIOLA...PUERTO RICO...AND THE VIRGIN ISLANDS. THIS
    SYSTEM HAS BECOME LESS ORGANIZED THIS AFTERNOON...AND UPPER-LEVEL
    WINDS ARE FORECAST TO BECOME INCREASINGLY UNFAVORABLE FOR
    DEVELOPMENT AS THE SYSTEM MOVES WESTWARD AT 10 TO 15 MPH.
    HOWEVER...LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL...WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR FLASH
    FLOODING...WILL AFFECT PORTIONS OF HISPANIOLA AND JAMAICA OVER THE
    NEXT DAY OR SO.
