Hurricane info: time to pay attention 7/14/08
The forecast for 94L
NHC is giving 94L a medium 20-50% chance of developing into a tropical depression by Tuesday morning. Wind shear is expected to remain low, less than 10 knots, for the next four days, and the water temperatures will be plenty warm enough to support development. Three of the four global models we trust predict 94L will develop into a tropical depression. The ECMWF develops it and puts 94L into the Lesser Antilles islands on Saturday. The UKMET model does not develop it, but also puts it into the Lesser Antilles islands on Saturday. The GFS develops it but foresees that Bertha will be close enough and strong enough to pull 94L north of the Lesser Antilles about, 6-8 days from now. The NOGAPS model is much slower, and does not foresee a threat to the Lesser Antilles this week. In summary, there is the potential for a tropical depression to form later this week from 94L, and residents of the Lesser Antilles should anticipate the possibility of tropical storm conditions affecting the islands by Saturday.

I hate Hurricane Season!!!
I live on the Louisiana coast, so from June to the end of November, I am constantly watching the weather to see what's going on. What's promising about this area about this area of disturbed weather is that earlier yesterday, there was a greater than 50% chance of it developing. Another good website to check on the storms is http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/.
btw, I am one of those that once there is a wave off the coast of Africa, I am ready to pack all the valuables and get the heck out of dodge.January 24, 2010 will go down in history for Saints fans everywhere.
Bless You Boys! You're off to the Black and Gold Superbowl!!!

We could certainly use the rain a hurricane would produce!
If it gets any drier here we'll soon turn to dust.....
However, after Katrina and the problems we had being 50 miles inland, we'll be prepared.
We were without power..... in south Miss heat and humidity..... for over 2 months.
