The mezozoic(sp?) low that has pounded the Florida Panhandle the last couple of days (I think that's the way Jason described it on the weather last night, was a mezozoic low) has drifted out into the Gulf. Any chance of it ultimately developing a surface low and then coming back onshore somewhere? The thunderstorms overnight here were nasty!
Actually, what we had here last night was an MCS, a mesoscale convective system, or, basically a very large cluster of thunderstorms. And yes, MCS's, when they get in the GOM, can be focal points for nearshore tropical development...the MCS that rolled thru the Panhandle last night did seem to have a broad circulation last night. Danny in 1998 is a good example of a tropical system that formed that way.
