Well, the train of waves moving across the Atlantic has got me thinking. Does anyone know if it is possible, steering-current wise, to have two tropical storms/hurricanes threatening the U.S. at the same time? In the scenario I was mulling over in my head, one cyclone would move into the Gulf (and thus be on a longer track), while a second storm, moving behind the first, would catch a deepening trough and become a "short-cut storm, bringing it to the U.S. Atlantic Coast.
Not that I would ever wish for this to happen, but was just wondering (in my overactive mind), technically, if this was even possible (i.e., maybe atmospheric conditions could not change quickly enough to send two storms on such different paths).
