fyi, models shows a possible storm forming near the Cape Verde Islands and making it all the way across the Atlantic on the long range models. Something to watch!

1. A vigorous tropical wave accompanied by a broad low pressure system
is producing a large area of cloudiness and showers more than 300
miles south-southeast of the Cabo Verde Islands. Environmental
conditions are forecast to be conducive for gradual development, and
a tropical depression is likely to form by early next week over the
eastern or central tropical Atlantic Ocean. This system is forecast
to move toward the west or west-northwest at 10 to 15 mph for the
next several days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...30 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.

Ten Days shows recurve and right in our pocket!




Geez, if only these long range models were correct all the time! However, something to watch and debate. I like it. Football and Hurricane season nears!

Think I'll up the lap count in the pool...Even it doesn't form like showing in the long range, at least it is moving towards us for a few days.

Just showed the wife and she asked when? I said a week from Monday. Her answer, NOPE...and, back with the headphones on. Flavor Flav says, "Don't Believe The Hype"

LMAO sounds about the same response I get from my wife... she does trust me when I say time to go time to get outta here though! I stayed through one once years when I was in college, direct landfall borderline cat 1/2, and not anything I'd ever wanna go through again!!! A lot of people give me crap about bailing since I have properties and I always say rather be safe than sorry + lots of nice hotels in Tampa or Atlanta for quick vacation which never know might get paid for by insurance LOL And most of the people who give me crap haven't been through a real one!! Really since Andrew we really haven't had one ( well 2004 if lived in Punta Gorda or maybe Hutchinson island ) which worries me with the population size nowadays as. I know lots who stayed through Matthew who got lucky and are  probably complacent to the fact that they never had anything more than TS level winds...

 

Let's hope we don't have one this season but if we do let's hope people are smart & stay safe!!!

I mentioned this in the 8/1 thread, why I dont blow off work for waist high waves....

As much as I'd love an excuse to wax up the big boards,  I havent even finished putting my house back together from Matthew  (seriously not even living in my house yet).... not really a fan of the idea of a STRONG cat 4 just off the coast

The Charleston area still has homes needing repairs (usually starting with roofing).  Churches have been helping organize assistance.  I'm sure there's still flood damage in North Carolina in places like Lumberton.
