 Tropical Storm Colin
As thunderstorms associated with a broad low pressure system deep in the Atlantic tropics have become better organized today, Tropical Storm Colin could form soon. The National Hurricane Center estimates the chance at 80 percent that this system spins into Colin by Tuesday. :roll

snip

The system represents the first real Cape Verde storm of the year, when an African wave develops deep in the tropics and tracks toward the Western Hemisphere. When these storms begin developing it is a strong sign that hurricane season is about to begin in earnest. :nono

And 91L is worth watching. The track models don't yet have a good handle on the system because it's not yet formed, but it's expected to follow a generally west-northwest path for the next few days.

Not nice news for the US. I imagine it has to be amazingly scary to experience a hurricane.

Last year we had a good size tornado (only seen here every ten years or so) run through our farm and rip our guest cottage appart. Lots of tree damage here. But it had me gob smacked as I watched it aproach and saw the roof of the building going. Very scary!

Trust this potential storm is going to simmer down.


:scared

Yes, Sky, experiencing a hurricane is not pleasant. The aftermath is absolutely the worst, though.

Tornados - yep grew up in Oklahoma so called "Tornado Alley" and still have a healthy fear of them.

This is the time of year the "great" hurricanes begin to form off of Africa and move towards the Caribbean and, sometimes, to the States.

We'll see how this fella survives the wind shear and movement up the Earth's surface.

It is not good at all for the oil spill.

Tropical storm expected in the Atlantic
System forms into tropical depression; could be east of Bahamas on Friday

MIAMI — A tropical depression formed far out in the Atlantic Ocean on Monday and early forecasts put it on a track off the U.S. Atlantic seaboard rather than into the Gulf of Mexico, where BP is working to finally plug its blown-out oil well.

The National Hurricane Center said the depression, with maximum sustained winds near 35 mph, was expected to strengthen in the next 48 hours and could be Tropical Storm Colin by Monday night or Tuesday.

NHC staffer Dennis Feltgen said conditions over the next five days are not favorable for the depression to develop beyond tropical storm strength into a full-blown hurricane.

Feltgen said the forecast five-day track keeps the storm on the Atlantic side of the nation's coast but that it was unclear yet where, if anywhere, it might come ashore.

(CNN) -- Tropical Depression Four strengthened into a tropical storm overnight, but it was not expected to hit land, the National Hurricane Center said Tuesday.

The tropical storm was named Colin, and it was churning in the Atlantic Ocean, about 945 miles east of the Lesser Antilles islands, the center said.

Tropical Storm Colin had maximum sustained winds of about 40 mph, the hurricane center said in its 5 a.m. ET advisory.

Tracking maps show the storm system turning northwest in the Atlantic in the next couple days but did not show the system hitting land.
