Re: Tropical Storm Claudette Forms in Gulf of Mexico. Tropical Storm Warnings Up for NE Gulf [Re: Hugh]

Im just curious, While looking at the track it goes from H to M. What does that mean? This is the first time I have ever seen this on a hurricane track. And this is in reference to Bill.

The M indicates a predicted major hurricane.

H = Hurricane
M = Major Hurricane

although I've NEVER seen the NHC graphic use M before, that's got to be what it means given the forecast for Bill.

Claudette's pressure is an indicator that it won't deepen rapidly, 1008 the whole time, and hasn't fallen is a big sign.

I'm recording a webcam at Miramar that has some nighttime viewing ability here.

Neat webcam. The one I was viewing on Okaloosa Island went dark at sunset.

As for deepening, I'm not suggesting that it's going to deepen or intensify significantly before landfall, but it could still strengthen somewhat, and the satellite presentation and radar presentation indicate this, even without a pressure drop.

Hey, we all have to grow sometimes... change.. evolve.... NHC is not asleep at the job... and yes Bill will put on quite a show... with the exception of Claudette's movement inland... he is really the only game in town.

Waiting to see how the package out of Miami is updated at 11..especially the discussion.

People are talking about the center looking ragged on radar again.........but it's gonna look like that since the NE quad is now between the radar and the center......and they are ignoring the huge IR blow up

It is not getting stronger and soon will be inland and the storm will be done.Its really just a rain event to the east of the center that is about it.

Claudette seems to be done and over with, for the most part. Will be a rain event now and possible tornado threat for the southern states. Bill I believe will be upgraded to hurricane status next advisory, it has continued to improve in organization and hints of an eyewall can be seen on water vapor satellite imagery. Ana seems to be barely struggling to survive, I expect this system to die out as forecasted, but I wouldn't be suprised, if it maintains the NHC forecast track, to re-organize once again when in the GOM and pose a possible threat to the Gulf Coast region. Getting hit by two storms in the same relative area within a week or so of one another could pose a flooding hazard, I think.

man been watching radar and sats all day, esp. this evening.. just amazed at how the low level center from Claudette.. just took off and left the mid to upper lever center.. yet, looking at sats... u think the this is the best the storm has looked.... that trough to the north just kept this system from staying intact... i know theres shear on the west and south side, but i think the trough over the SE played a huge roll in not allowing the covection to to hook up with the surface center... it tried, but never could stay together...

http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/goes/flt/t3/flash-rb.html WOW... just an amazing picture this evening and tonight

http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/goes/flt/t3/loop-ir2.html southerly feed into the convection.. while the surface center is moving across nw Fl.
