  1. Not quite a 1994 East Pac Hurricane Rosa's mid-level center crossing over a very shallow cold air mass with flow off the Gulf just off the surface and raining so much the San Jacinto river in Houston gouged itself deep enough to uncover and rupture gasoline and diesel pipelines and set the river on fire, but SW flow is bringing Pamela's remnants up along a stationary boundary with seasonably high 60s/low 70s dewpoints ahead of it, prompting WPC to put the areas near and W of I-35 in a Moderate Risk for excessive flooding with 5-7 inch rain totals. One picture is the San Jacinto river on fire, the other is the stationary front the ML center of Pam should track over. But even when Texas hurricane season is over, the tropics still influence the weather.

  3. Op GFS maybe tries to develop something in a week, but it gets stuck over Central America then the Yucatan. A few of the GEFS do like that for development,
  4. Kate weakened from a Cat 3 (to a strong 2) just before hitting Florida just over a week before Thanksgiving It wasn't over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor.
  5. Not explicit on the model, but I think there is a chance that if a low forms on the cold front that enters the Gulf, it might try to at least go sub-tropical before coming North next weekend or early the week after.
  6. NCEP's EWP MJO forecast worked for me all season, until mid-late September when it suggested a brief inactive phase and then after about 5 October an active Caribbean. It isn't perfect, but newest suggests mid-month things get active again. Edit to add: this would mean the EWP forecast from last week was wrong as well, as it kept the unfavorable phase until almost the end of October. But things might get active again around mid-October
  7. No expert, but non-circular isobars to the S of a low often show where the front it, at the discontinuity. I think that is frontal.
  8. CPC's MJO EWP finally let me down. Worked pretty well all season in predicting active periods, A bit over a week ago it was saying after the first week of October, upward motion would be favorable in the Caribbean and W Atlantic. Latest has pushed that back to mid-month. As far as the boring C- season goes, high end Cat 4 hurricanes, last letter of the standard alphabet left, much of the coast directly or indirectly affected, I'd hate to see an A+ season. I assume Miami and NYC would need direct Cat 5/Cat 4 hits?
  9. 6Z GEFS- Southern Gulf/Caribbean infested with members showing a storm with 1000 mb or below pressure a week from tomorrow.
  10. After 10 days, GEFS look interesting for developing in Caribbean and headed to Gulf action.
  11. IIRC, ACE is based strictly on wind speed (squared) and time. Small storms with the same top winds rank w/ large storms of same top winds. IKE, Integrated Kinetic Energy, includes areas affected by winds of various speeds. Harder math, but includes size. I could be wrong.
  12. I didn't save the Tweet, but a couple of days ago someone on Weather Twitter screencapped some news website asking if Sam was going to be the next Sandy. For the laughs and disappointment someone could hype that much. Now that no model brings it close, out of sight, out of mind. That and the eye is warming. Eyewall convection still cold, but the eye itself, pretty meh.
  13. Late in the year for CV storms, especially ones that look like they could effect the Lesser Antilles. Oh, has anyone seen the GFS ensembles?
