Waves off Africa
11:27 PM EDT - 02 June 1999

A short update tonight.

There is a unusually strong tropical wave in the eastern Atlantic for this time of year. Although I do not believe it can develop, it is worth noting for it being so early in June.

A big question this year is will the Bermuda High move further west than normal, thus increasing the chances for a Southeast US hit. (Yes including Central Florida) Comparing some weather factors to previous years shows the storms tend to move further west, which would increase the chance for landfall. Almost Vero Beach north to Savannah has a slightly higher chance than normal. But these are guesses in reality, as anywhere in the Atlantic ring of wind has a better than usual chance with this predicted active year.

Today I fixed and added a few links, moved some things from old sites to here and added the auto-storm table at the top right. The data there is updated automatically, hopefully it won't crash and burn when the first storm comes. I've tested it with old data and it seems to work.

Hmmm...didn't we hear the season would start earlier this year?? Hope not. Looking forward to your next update.
