    Well, this is the beginning. This first wave is one to watch. It mentions the Lesser Antilles should be paying attention about August 17th.


    If you live in the Lesser Antilles Islands, or plan on visiting next week, keep in mind that this forecast puts the Lesser Antilles at increased risk of a seeing a tropical cyclone beginning Friday, August 17. For the period August 17 - August 20, there is at least a 10% chance that a tropical storm or hurricane will affect these islands. Given the high uncertainties that a storm will form, or even make it across the Atlantic without recurving, should it form, one should not be canceling any travel plans at this point. However, you should be giving serious thought to your hurricane plan and what you would do if a hurricane did blow through the islands. Also, keep in minds that several of the computer models develop the next wave moving off the coast of Africa, a week later than the current wave. We are into the active part of hurricane season, and we can expect that one of these waves will develop and threaten the Lesser Antilles Islands--and points beyond--in August.

    I'm actually praying for cheering for Dean to come our way, as long as he is just a lot of rain, b/c we are dying here. 103 every day, heat index 110 or higher, everyone's yard is brown and you can barely breathe outside. I'm in east-central Alabama, 4 hours inland, and I'm yellin' "C'Mon DEAN!!!!!!!!!!"

    :woohoo:

    Yep-I was just telling my sister on Monday that I could really go for a tropical storm because it's so hot here. Sure enough, as soon as I got off the hone with her and turned on the t.v. there was talk of Dean

    We had Opal in 1995 blow through here as a Cat-2 and that wasn't very fun....Ivan in 2004 as a Cat-1......so no, I don't want that, just a tropical storm, thank you, that will suffice!!! :hand:
