Re: Bahama Disturbance

Hey folks, been away for a couple of days, hence no recent posts!
Here's my thoughts on the system to the NE of the Bahamas: It looks very disorganised on the satellite imagery, but there are indications of a LLCC to the ENE of Gr Abaco Island, and several low level swirls are also evident to the N of the possible LLCC. Not wanting to draw comparisons, but this is how Alberto appeared for at least the early stage of his life! Not sure on development, havent had a chance to go over the models yet. However, it has persisted for several days now, and the tone coming from NHC has also changed from a 'Not Gonna Happen' to a 'wait a moment...'. Will post more later once i've had chance to look at more of the available data.

Kind regards
