Quote: Max Mayfield had a talk that was broadcast live on Hurricanetrack.com this evening. A couple very interesting comments he made stuck out in my mind:
- There may be a 28th "named" storm after analysis. - Emily will "very likely" be upgraded to a cat 5
I wonder which system he was alluding to as possibly being upgraded to the 28th tropical storm of the season....?????
Too bad I missed it. I never know when those things are occuring (hey I don't even watch tv).
That would have to be subtropical depression 22. Speaking of which, is TD 19 the shortest post TC report on record? Just curious.
I saw that Emily's Cat 4 was 'flagged' with an asterisk on a set of slides talking about the 2005 season, so I assumed they were definitely going to upgrade. I'm glad. Emily was the first TC I watched from beginning to end and at the time I remember being disappointed that none of the advisories upgraded to a five based on the satellite presentation, which was just beautiful (and I wonder now how I would have even known that after only one week of watching hurricanes online); of course now I know there is a lot of other data that goes into determining intensity and that satellite presentation can only give a rough estimate (still, why in the sam hill they flew into Wilma at the 850mb level that first time is beyond me).
Just wondered...gee, what will they name it? The next letter was already taken. That poses an interesting problem. Another Greek name? Another bizarre note to the 2005 season. Well, at least in that case the season will still have run from A to Z (Mother Nature couldn't let that opportunity for literary allusion pass by).
