Quote: First off, a quick question for everyone: do you like these daily updates when there are active storm events, or prefer fewer posts on the whole that are edited within threads on the main page?
Clark, and all the mets in general; I think there is great value in a conntinuing, even continuous flow of updates regardless of if an active storm exists or not. Storm genesis and overall pattern development is just as valuable in its own way as is insight on development and path of developed systems are. In general, one of the main features of this forum is the opportunity for us 'great unwashed masses', (read amateurs) to learn. While we may not have the education or desire to become mets ourselves, we wouldn't be here in most cases if we weren't interested in the subject at hand. Any insight from the pros helps us learn and improve our own skills. If we want to be spoon-fed, we will read the NHC Tropical Outlook reports which basically say "we are/are not tracking blah-blah and no other storms are likely to form before x-day". That's fine, but it is nice to have an insight as to 'WHY?'. Your and other mets frequent comments help us understand; why?.
I, for one, thank you for your (frequent) insightful posts!
