A BROAD AREA OF LOW PRESSURE ACCOMPANIED BY NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND

Well, I just looked at that area too, and all I can see is something that LOOKS like a big red blob of t-storms, but I don't see it moving north at all. More east. Of course, this may not be the one they are talking about.

Still, it's interesting already, and we're not even at June 1st.

I guess we'll find out tomorrow if they are going to send in a plane. My computer is giving me problems, I can't get into ECTWC it keeps shutting me down...and kicking me off. I think AOL wants me to upgrade, because the last time this happened I had to go from 5.0 to 6.0. O well.

iF the subsidence from the high building down the east coast doesn't kill it (check the WV loop), and the high builds to its north, it could be in stalemate for a while and get pulled NNW. Colleen check the vis INVEST loop at NRL (hard to get in right now). The red blobs are the convection getting torn off. The low pressure isn't moving east, but pretty much stationary until the high moves into the western Atlantic . Patience! !LOL Cheers!!

If nothing else, south Florida got some needed rain this week. Still, it is something to watch and so early in the season.

Can someone please take a look and see if our system is trying to maybe relocate its circulation to be moreless underneath the main convection and let me know what you find out?

Never mind. I answered my own question. It looks like some of the convection is fading off and that is what was giving me the impression that the circulation was trying to relocate.

The weak circulation is centerd near 18.2N and 80.4W movement is near stationary and a drift to the NW is expected
later tonight or tomorrow. The lowest pressure is near 1009mb. The center is away from the area of convection as
the upper level wind sheer is still strong with the trough to
its ENE. As the trough weakens overnight into friday and the
low meanders NW it should start to get more established.
A recon will be sent possibly to the area on Fri,, hard to see
if it will be well defined by then,,but overnight Friday into sat
morning it should be well defined as it turns more to the N. In 60hrs it should be near TS strength and SW of Keywest by
early morning on Sunday. scottsvb

Caneman...go to "Storm Links" on the left hand side of the screen, and when you go down to DoD/Military it's the 3rd choice from the top. It's title is "Naval Research Laboratory". When you click on to that link, it will show you the visibles and any other pictures you want to see under the "Invest".

Now, if this doesn't mean I'm a Weather Watcher, I don't know WHAT it means.

I wonder if our system is in trouble.It looks as though the convection is dwindling away.All the convection is east of the circulation and caught up in the trough that is steadily moving to the east.I'm not quite sure this thing is going to survive.I guess time will tell.

Oh yeah...one more thing, LOL...when you GET to the NRL site, click on "Tropical Cyclone HomePage"...that is what brings up the site with the information.

You're right...it's very hard to see the low. And my eyes are double crossing anyway from the cold medicine.
