    It looked for a while as if it had dissipated; but now it is beginning to look ugly again. Keep an eye on it. Hoping it doessn't form up.

    Wasn't it reported that there would be a least 2 more named storms, probably of hurricane status, before the end of the season?

    I had heard the other day it was not before the end of season...but before the end of the week One was tracked toward the Gulf, the other going back out to sea. I've been watching....I was in Rita's path, but she turned East and we didn't get a drop of rain here. Might I add there wasn't a loaf of bread or bottle of water to be bought either after the scare!!!!

    I am keeping a close eye!

    Pook, the end of the hurricane season isn't until the end of November, so the odds are pretty good that we will see a few more hurricanes. The names chosen for any additional hurricanes, in order, are: Stan, Tammy, Vince, and Wilma. This has been quite the year, with Rita, and Katrina, ranked number 3 (897 MB), and 5 (902 MB),, respectively, in intensity, since they began keeping records. We don't need any more records set this year.

    From Accuweather:

    A tropical wave along 80 west south of 23 north is moving to the
    west-northwest at 12 knots. During the past 12 hours, the system has developed a low-level circulation along the southern end of the wave near 16 north. Wind shear is light over this portion of the wave so it should continue to develop and could become a tropical depression over the next 12-24 hours. It should track just to the north of Honduras later Thursday and into the Yucatan Peninsula on Friday. It may become a tropical storm prior to reaching the Yucatan and if it did, it would be named Stan. From there it should move across southern Mexico or even the Bay of Campeche later in the weekend or early next week. High pressure aloft should remain strong enough to the north to keep this feature to the south of Texas, but a weaker ridge would allow room for a northward shift. The northern part of the wave is being sheared and should be slow to develop over the next couple of days.

    We can't take anything else in Texas. So many of us are grabbing our butts looking for help.

    Right now, according to Accuweather, if this storm develops it will probably be steered South of Texas, but Accuweather did allow themselves an out.

    A tropical wave along 81 west south of 23 north is moving to the
    west-northwest at 12 knots. A low level circulation developed along the wave near 16 north Wednesday afternoon but all the strong convection associated with it has diminished Wednesday evening. The strongest convection is farther north near 19 north and it may get going again later Wednesday night closer to the low level circulation. Wind shear is light over this portion of the wave so it should continue to develop and could become a tropical depression over the next 12-24 hours. It should track just to the north of Honduras later Thursday and into the Yucatan Peninsula on Friday. It may become a tropical storm prior to reaching the Yucatan and if it did, it would be named Stan. From there it should move across southern Mexico or even the Bay of Campeche later in the weekend or early next week. A ridge of high pressure aloft will build over the lower Mississippi Valley later this weekend and early next week and should steer this feature to the south of Texas, but if the ridge is weaker or farther north northward shift in the track could occur.

    I meant that we already had so many others misplaced from the storms that we couldn't take anything else.

    Tropical Depression 19 -- Could become "Stan"

    Far Out In The Atlantic:

    http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/refresh/grap...617.shtml?3day

    19TH TROPICAL DEPRESSION FORMS IN THE EASTERN ATLANTIC

    As of 5 p.m. Friday, tropical depression 19 was located near 11.8 north and 32.9 west or about 665 miles west-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands. It wil moving to the west at 2 mph. Estimated minimum central pressure is 1007 millibars or 29.74 inches. TD 19 should slowly track north and could become a tropical storm within 12-24 hours. If it did, it would be named Stan. This feature should generally track to the north-northwest toward the open waters of the Atlantic over the weekend.

    The following information refers to the other system around Cuba
    A broad area of low pressure located along 84 west and south of 22 north is tracking west-northwest at 10-15 knots. The center of circulation has taken a jump north over the pas 12-24 hours and it appears to be close to 20 north. It should track near the northern Yucatan Peninsula on Saturday and then into the open waters of the southwest Gulf of Mexico on Sunday. We are concerned about the farther north development of this feature and its future impact on the Texas or Mexican coast. Latest models are farther north with the track of this feature over the weekend and the GFS now takes it into the Lower Rio Grande Valley on Monday. We think that this feature can still become a depression over the weekend and pass across the northern Yucatan. If it passes north of the Yucatan, provided it has become a depression, it could strengthen into a tropical storm or possibly a hurricane in the southwest Gulf by early next week. If it goes over the Yucatan then it would take longer to recharge. Meanwhile, upper level shear is and will be favorable for development from the northwest Caribbean into the southwest Gulf through early next week. Anybody with interests along the Texas coast into northeast Mexico should keep up to date on this feature.

    Well, as far as I am concerned it can stay way out there, too
