Re: Watching Hurricane Felix and Area off Georgia

Folks, while we admire the eye-candy that Felix has become... A tid-bit to keep in mind.

Along the 75W range there is currently an antecedent (prior to Felix's arrival) region of somewhat anomalously high oceanic heat content. The following link nicely shows a region of approximately +2 sigma values and Felix is about to pass right over that with nearly ideal deep layer, non-inhibitory development parameters.


It is quite plausible that Felix is heading for upper category destiny and may do so with a bit of rapidity. This is currently in a rapid intensification phase -- it would appear. Though that is not an official call, it is imo.

Also, I have put together some comments regarding the area of disturbed weather just off the SE Coast. This can found over in the 2007 Storm Forum, if anyone is interested...
