Re: Area of Interest - UPGRADED to "Potential Tropical Cyclone Two" 5pm Sunday

Can't classify it as a tropical depression, because it doesn't have a closed surface low.

I agree that it just isn't necessary... If PTC 2 fails to develop, I think that'll be a major slap on the wrist to this new policy. The old practice was the best one -- either it is a tropical cyclone or it isn't. No in between.
