Just saw that on the news. It's not even a tropical depression yet, but it has already intensified in just a short time. They are talking about others off of Africa too. Hope it is just hype and nothing more major comes out of this.

Right now it is around the Jamacia area and they are supposed to send in the planes tomorrow. You have that area which looks like it could be a gulf problem and another area between us and Africa that could be an Atlantic problem next week.

Nope, actually, they start using the Greek alphabet, so the 5th one from now would be "Hurricane Alpha".

(I'm a FONT of utterly useless trivia!)

So what do they do if "Alpha" turns out to be really severe, and they retire the name.... Next time do they go straight to "Beta"???

Default GOOD NEWS

GOOD NEWS

this morning the weather channell said that is does NOT look like it will form into a hurricane. To much upper wind sheer to worry about it.
Just moving due west toward Mexico. Lots of rain, not much else.

Hi
I also saw that it "fell apart" overnight. Not sure of any intensification. We have some low pressure off Florida that is moving off to the East, so the most we will see is a 50-60% chance of rain, INLAND. That's me! There's nothing significant off Africa right now. Lynne

NO more storms--at least not next week. I'm flying to Tampa on October 5th until the 9th to spend time with my kids for family weekend at their college. Then again, getting stuck in Florida while the weather in New England turns cold may be a good thing.

Good morning all. Please don't mention hurricane in the gulf in front of me. My first cruise leaves Galveston Oct. 8th and already having second thoughts (and 3rd and 4th) about sailing in hurricane season this year.
Already had Katrina cause a ship change, if I were superstitious I might think that was a sign.

Hi Yellow Rose, Don't have second thoughts. You are going to have a wonderful time. The Capt. is going to take special care of you, and your fellow passengers. I want a review when you get home, so I can see how it will be for me in Dec.

I will let you know how it went for sure. Watching the tropical wave hoping that it doesn't do anything bad. I know I'm gonna have fun, if hurricane comes up will just order a hurricane to drink.

This storm is not well defined
It is located between the Cayman Islands and Honduras. 170 mile SW of Grand cayman and moving NNW. no tunderstorms are in the center. The upper winds will probably keep it from forming any more.
I could be wrong though.

According to our weather tonight, there's nothing of significance brewing right now. Florida will be having some dryer air filtering down from a cold front for a few days. Nothing major off Africa, either, at this time. Lynne

It's the weather people's job to report on waves and disturbances - that in no way means these things are going to develop. Until recently there's been a hurricane in every month but April - but last year or the year before there was one in April.

Personally I think the local weather reporters over do it, but they probably get tired of saying sunny, partly cloudy, rain, etc. Time to build up some excitement. And, in no way am I saying we shouldn't be prepared should a hurricane come our way (my state - Florida had 4 last year ... a rarity - and 3 of them affected my area).

Only 30 more days left of hurricane season. We are past the busiest times which is august, september. Now if there any to hit the coast line they will be smaller and not as intense. Keep an eye out there folks.

The wave in the Gulf didn't pan out but the wave in the Atlantic has formed and will be named Stan. Good part is that it is going to go north and will bother nobody except maybe shipping. I am not going to take the generator out and put it in winter storage just yet. Still have a couple months to go.

My son got a storm named after him--Kenneth--to the east of the Hawaiian Islands!!!
So, what name comes after S on our side?? Isn't there a tropical depression 19? Lynne

SeaTrekker, those are the names for the Atlantic hurricanes; Lynne was asking about the Pacific basin names.

The Pacific list uses all the letters! Anyway, after "Selma" would come Todd, Veronica, Wiley, Xena, York and Zelda.

If you want to see the lists for this or the next years, here's the URL for NOAA's list of them for the next several years:

http://www.aoml.noaa.gov/hrd/tcfaq/B2.html

HTH!

Thanks, guys! I was asking about the ones on the Atlantic side-as Tropical Depression 19 is after Stan. But, it's good to know all of them so I and all of us can keep track. Hmmmn. We have a Tammy at work--but at this juncture will do well not to put her in the same sentence as "a lot of hot air", like a hurricane!! I hope none come this way during my cruise week of Oct. 23-30!! Lynne
