Dennis and Wave
05:36 AM EDT - 31 August 1999
Dennis remains offshore of North Carolina and is slowing down as predicted. What happens next is a wait. It will sit and spin off the coast for a bit before making its move. Which could be out to see, closer to the NE coastline, or back towards North Carolina. It's been even more of a pain because there is a high pressure system to the north of it that is creating a gradient that has much enlarged the tropical storm force windfield. Making it ugly along the NC and Virginia coasts. Future track is really anyone's guess, and it may be weaker when it does, but that's not certain either.
Cindy is moving fast and away as a Tropical Storm and is almost done.
I jumped the gun yesterday when I predicted a TD#7. It did not form, and probably won't for a few more days.
Sorry for the lack of updates in the last few days. Hopefully we'll get the time to do some major work on the site soon.
