The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
-Psalm 19:1

Do you know that God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash?
-Job 37:15

Is that thing finally wanting to make something of itself?

Well, that's more like it. This morning, it appears that 99L is still spinning strong out in the middle of the ocean, and it is building up some convection around the center of circulation. It looks like the shear has backed off some, and now things seem to be happening. I believe today is the day that we will get our tropical designation for this non-tropical area of low pressure. Yes, folks, it's finally starting to look like a storm wants to happen. Today should be interesting. Right now, that's the only game in town, so all eyes on 99L.

I was greeted by this fabulous color pallette this morning as I watched Mini-Dew at her bus stop. You can see the crescent moon just barely in the top left quadrant of the photograph (I promise, click on the picture for a larger view). It was a very cool sky/pre-sunrise. As for weather locally, looks like our high pressure will keep the dry air around for a little while. Last night was beautiful. I can only hope that this evening matches that weather for my yard work chores. Thunderstorms enter back into the forecast starting on Monday, so all is not lost.

I will update as things change in the tropics... maybe.

Update: Horrible time to lose internet, but I just spent the last 3 hours in total darkness, no connection whatsoever. The NHC issued a SPECIAL TROPICAL DISTURBANCE STATEMENT, regarding the persistent 99L. Satellite presentation is getting quite impressive. Looks like I was dead on this morning! When does that ever happen?

Update:1:15 Can you say wrap around convection...? We've got ourselves a storm. The East coast needs to be vigilant.TGIF!
