Ed what is going on with 90L.I mean you can see two different winds at the lower.The northern one going CCW and the southern one is CW.The two winds converge over 90L.What is causing the southern wind?Leave it to me to go talk bad about 99L and it takes off.Glad to see it something to watch finally.

James & Luis,

LOL! No, I haven't popped the cork yet. Been busy here and on some other weather sites. Don't worry though I will.

By the way, there's a new sheriff in town...that's all I'm gonna say.

STAY TUNED!

Cheers,

LI Phil

If you look at the latest visible image, TD #1 has a few flare - ups of convection going on. Maybe it will organise faster than is currently being forecast.

I am very surprised that nobody has commented about how Ed came the closest guess. I was at the Space Center today and heard unconfirmed reports that there was a "met" on the beach doing a "TD Dance". If my timing is correct it was shortly after the hurricane hunters left the invest. I think Ed must have some reverse Dyna-gel.

The convection associated with the system seems to be on the increase. I wonder if it will reach 30kts by the next advisory.

TD1 is really looking good on satellite. I wonder if this will become TS Alex before 2 pm tomorrow, as is the current forecast.

Just popped the champagne. Didn't even realize it but there was a Veuve split all the way in the back of the fridge, so I'm greatly enjoying that instead. Oh baby.

Cheers (literally),

LI Phil

Uh, sorry there, chief. Hate to correct a fellow Yankees fan, but trust me, it's 5 hours ahead in Daylight Savings Time. Think about it: Spring ahead, fall back. We push the clocks ahead during DST, and back during standard time. Nice win today.

You guys are both right...and I haven't even finished half a glass of champagne. When we move the clocks ahead one hour, we move one hour CLOSER to GMT. I'm totally screwed up. Amazed DD also goofed. So sorry.

GMT (Zulu/UTC) is 4 hours ahead of EDT and 5 hours ahead of EST. OK, I think I finally got it. What a moron am I.
