Aug 31 tropics due to heat up again!!

By: CybrTeddy, 3:37 PM GMT on August 21, 2005

The main models are predicting the shear to relax in the Caribbean and conditions will begin to favor development if any of hurricanes/tropical weather.

Also noted was each Hurricane season there is a relaxed period of no development. We are couple weeks out from the height of hurricane season.

Dry and hot here the calm before the storms perhaps..

Super-Ultra-HOT HOT!!

Dry and HOT HOT HOT here in Central Florida.
You can feel that sinking air from the high pressure.
Definate change from the wet pattern we had for several months. The tropics are behaving. No doubt the unusual dust storm pattern off of Africa has something to do with that.
Dry air and hurricanes do not MIX!!

Everyone stay hydrated and cool..

Hot Florida Sunshine!! No rain finally..

After a month of rain yesterday was our first rain free day here in Central Florida. It was super hot however and it seemed a wee on the dry side from the morning.

It's odd not to see thunder in the sky after countless days of storms. Must be the Bermuda High in action.

TD #10 possible Jose?

By: CybrTeddy, 2:01 PM GMT on August 14, 2005

Again good news about Irene and now the focus has shifted towards TD #10. It's The forcast models have it moving more westward than Irene and the high pressure over Florida that had been buffering storms has moved over the gulf of Mexico it seems leaving Florida vulerable it seems.

All eyes on TD#10 and future movements.
And yet we have another hurricane free weekend it seems.

Charley death toll at 13 -2004

By: CybrTeddy, 2:21 PM GMT on August 13, 2005

Many of the computer models are in agreement that Irene will stay off of America's East coast. Excellent news for coastal residents.

Today is the perfect day to reflect on what Charley did and remember how lucky we have been with the last several storms.
Have a good weekend!! Hurricane Free!!

Irene 8-12-05

By: CybrTeddy, 4:02 PM GMT on August 12, 2005

Name: Tropical Storm Irene

Location: About 300 miles, 485 km, south-southwest of bermuda and about 700 miles, 1125 km, Southeast of Cape
Hatteras North Carolina.

Lat/Long: 28.3N, 66.8W

Max Winds: 65 mph

Heading: Northwest

Speed: 13 mph

Pressure: 29.35 inches

Watching Irene and hoping she isn't another Isabel for NC/VA Tidewater area. She looks very weak right now and no doubt if she moves NORTH and gets over cooler water Irene will end up more like a Nor'Easter than a Hurricane if she hits.


Intersting History link on Hurricanes:

Note: 2003 Hurricane Isabel leaves a path of damage from North Carolina to Pennsylvania costing $3 billion and 16 deaths

I need I survived Isabel T-shirts!! 7 full days without power I will never forget it.
