I frequently read the blogs on Weather Underground and I've noticed that some of you have some pretty interesting things to say. Dr. Masters always has a very accurate blog to read and that's normally where I get all of my news on the tropics.

My take on the 2006 Hurricane Season:

While some of you may believe that this hurricane season is off to a slow start, in all reality, this is a very normal start to the season. Typically, wind shear is a problem early in the season and when it dies down, things get going. However, shear has been abnormally high in the GOM and Caribbean this season, but is soon to die down. Sure, the shear has been wonderful at keeping the tropics at bay so far, but when it dies down, I'm afraid things might get ugly. The Gulf of Mexico is sizzling, along with the Caribbean. I say give the tropics one more week and then you'll have a system to worry about. At the moment and for the next week, "shear rules!"
