Just a brief Danielle update… sure enough, Danielle gained hurricane strength over the course of yesterday. She has quickly now, strengthened to a category 2 hurricane. Hurricane Danielle is way out there in the Atlantic and sort of meandering her way across. She doesn’t look all that impressive to me. Interests in Bermuda and the fools doing the Titanic robot project (during hurricane season, duh!!!) should take notice, but really, she could do anything in that amount of time. Most of the models do present her as a fish storm.
Unfortunately, hot on Danielle’s heels is yet another tropical wave off of Africa, which is looking ripe for action.Much of its precipitation is over the Cape Verde Islands, and it is trying to organize as I type. The National Hurricane Center-Tropical Prediction Center has got a 90% likelihood of tropical development for this area of low pressure.
IT APPEARS THAT A TROPICAL DEPRESSION COULD BE FORMING
So you see how quickly things can change. Unfortunately, complacency may have gotten too strong of a grip on the American coastline in the meantime. As I’ve said before, it only takes one!!! Be on guard, people. Just because it hasn't happened, doesn't mean it won't.
Have a marvelous day!
