The Next Tropical Storm
08:51 AM EDT - 16 October 2000

May form from the area discussed yesterday. It has strong enough gale force winds, that if it did convert over to a tropical system in the next day or two it would probably skip the Depression state and go directly to a Tropical Storm, Michael.

We'll continue to watch it.

Well in my opinion i think this sytem may already be a tropical or subtropical system. visible and IR imagery show convection and clouds increasing near the circulation centre, with a relatively large area on the northern side of the Centre. It is interesting that NHC cancelled the recon flight for today also. Any one else have any thoughts on this sytem?

waitin for the upgrade.. (#2)
