Re: Fred Still a Hurricane, Other Areas Being Watched

I like the split screen images.

Fred definitely seems to want to go west for a while..down the road at some point. Watching storms like this teach patience and are more a lesson in how things work than a test of ability to see what city some big storm is about to hit. Message boards seem overly quiet as Fred is far away and the other two systems are not named.

Oddly, both systems highlighted on the front page here have caused a lot of beach erosion and flooding. Both systems are hugging the coast and have been slow movers.

More so...the steering currents in general seem to have gotten stuck in gear and are not going anywhere fast.

Makes me wonder what will happen when we hit "Indian Summer" and if there will be a door for Fred or more so Grace to affect land without being brushed aside by a trough and taken out to sea.

Still not sure if Fred can get that far west... or what, sometimes the harder seasons where things don't spin up fast and take predictable paths are ...harder to predict or understand until after they are over in post game analysis.
