Extremely off topic but brief FYI--SpaceX is launching their first operational crewed mission to the ISS

Just watched it from here! Like a very slow meteor going up, then drifted off to the northeast back down over the trees. Very cool!

Yea, off topic, but very cool!

Looks like Provencia Island is going to take a direct hit from Iota in the morning.

Looks like a beautiful island. I imagine Eta already beat it up a bit. Population about 5K. A big Gilligan's Island.

Hopefully Colombia evacuated everybody they could.

I did not have that luxury, that is a clear benefit to living in Florida! Honestly with everything happening this year, any piece of good news or "humanity can do it" piece brightens my mood. That was indeed very cool to watch.

Never seen a hurricane in a lemon blob before.

Mmmm that sounds tasty. And/or discombobulating. Either way I like that the NHC is branching out into mixology.

I don't recollect ever seeing an 'area of interest' coincide with an active TC before either.

NHC progs a 20% chance of a depression+ forming in the lemon blob x5. But it's 2020, what the hell, go for it...

A third hit on Central America , Nicaragua, Honduras, would be a bridge too far for those poor bastids though. PF unimaginable to even think of it, something even worse than the way Louisiana's been clobbered this year with TCs.

1. An area of low pressure could form in a few days over the central or 
southwestern Caribbean Sea. Development, if any, of this system 
should be slow to occur late this week while it moves slowly 
westward across the southwestern Caribbean Sea.

You mean the eastern Caribbean. That’s where people say the graveyard is.
