Shear & Dry Air - One for the Mets
      Mon Aug 07 2006 11:00 PM

Hey all: I got this question from someone earlier, hoping maybe someone can give a better answer than any that I can come up with:

"Hey Colleen:

Trying to understand why there is so much shear and dry air blocking the waves this year!! I don't recall in the last few years so much talk about this.................... I am very happy about it but just wondering what is going on????

Didn't know where to ask the question so thought I would PM you.................

Thanks so much and thought you could lead me in the direction of finding out about the shear and dry air dominating the talk this season.......

*Edited post to protect personal information!

Thanks All!


You know you're a hurricane freak when you wake up in the morning and hit "REFRESH" on CFHC instead of the Snooze Button.
