I agree to disagree...To quote the dearly depararted John Hope of the Weather Channel, "We typically don't look past the Carribean until late July, everything beyond there is quiet til then due to cooler waters." It used to be that way, and I grew up watching it that way every day in the summer. I've been watching the tropics since I was 8 (I'm 29 now), I haven't known of anything to look like that during this time of year. Anomolous or not, someone is getting quite the boat ride within the duldrums of the deep central Atlantic today. While it very well may not become full fledged, it held it's own for quite some time since departing Africa (About a quarter of the way across). I still think its highly bizzare to see the oragnization I've seen in that system I attatched (for any time of year) since its between 4-5 degrees north, but I'd like to see/know of an example of it from the past if someone has seen it before. I know I've never seen one make it that far (or that far south) at this time of year for sure...so after watching for so many years...this may be an educational opportunity.
