Hurricane Jeanne, after devastating Haiti and killing hundreds is still sitting in the Atlantic, being very predictably erratic (to put it kindly).
A general westward motion is expected to begin eventually which may put some areas along the US east coast under watch. Keep an eye on Jeanne.
Karl is the fish spinner, moving its way up through the central Atlantic.
Lisa is another erratic storm, it is so small it may be overtaken by the disturbance that is behind it, which will probably become a depression today or tomorrow. Lisa's current movement is slow, and probably will slow down more if it doesnít get absorbed by the other system first.
The last system being watched is the low in the Gulf, a spin off of Ivan, which will have trouble organizing but still needs watching.
Itís a very active day in the tropics, with several drunk systems in the Atlantic, it will be a cautious watch for the next few days, especially on Jeanne.
