many thanks to mr. cristaldi for putting up those animated gifs of our recent system. seems i'd only caught the tail end of it... there was more to the story than reckoned. a presumptuous eyeballing of the shear situation and i called it dead in the water; but the system wasn't emergent at that point, as it had already gone through most of its life cycle. based on the satelite running back to february 20th, i wouldn't be surprised if that system was holding down gale force winds at times between the 21st and 23rd. guess quickscat vectors never showed any since there hasn't been a big pile of hype on the feature. nevertheless, this little bugger has me wondering bigtime if we'll see more south atlantic activity in the future. 2004 seemed like some mad statistical fluke, but just two years later another convincing feature has popped up. further north of where the system has come unbound that other convective feature is still flaring away, just like the one that spawned the little freak... as noted in a previous post. things are surely going mad when i'm looking for a tropical system off the coast of brazil in february. wacky doesn't begin to describe this.
