CFHC Talkback For News Story #52:
Newest Talkback: 09:57 AM 08-15 EDT

Gulf, Dora, Africa
08:13 AM EDT - 15 August 1999

A quick update this morning.

The wave talked about yesterday has mostly come off Africa, but still has a ways to go before development may occur. It's still worth watching over the next few days.

An old frontal boundry is stalled in the Gulf of Mexico and some convection has been persisting in the area. Although it is too early to draw conclusions now, that's worthy of being watched.

Finally, a rare jump (for us) into the East Pacific, as Hurricane Dora nears Hawaii. Chances are low that it may effect Hawaii, but folks there (or if you have interests there) may want to watch it.

So still nothing happening in the Atlantic currently, but there are at least a few items worth watching.

Overall, the upper air pattern is becoming more favorable for next week. Joe...
