Gearing up for the Tropics

Well it's that time of year again. Can you believe it? June 1st will officially start Hurricane Season on paper, but we are already seeing some signs of early Low pressures forming over the Atlantic. Yes, computer models are simply computers which frequently change from day-to-day, but some notes are always interesting to look for while running through models. The latest run of the CMC (Canadian Model) shows a low pressure system forming off the coast of Florida five days from today (Wednesday, 5/13). NOGAPS model also shows a low pressure forming near the same time in the Northern Gulf, which is south of the Florida Panhandle. Water temps are near average, but they seem relatively warm already this year at 27C (~80F) off the South tip of FL. Another global forecast model has already tried to draw tropical activity from a run this past Sunday, but things the system was erased quickly on the next day. Take all of this with a grain of salt, but I hope you know we are getting ready to go for the 2009 Hurricane Season. Our newest update this Spring has given us impressive new graphics and material to use to better track Hurricanes. Please continue to be a faithful follow of the every-changing Channel 7 Weather Team as we are gearing up for a new season. As for now, follow us on twitter....
