In an attempt to rejuvenate this board, I'm starting a season long thread. We can keep general tropical discussion here, and I (or whoever) can start a new thread for each storm once we have a depression/named storm.
I honestly don't know about how hurricanes & all that works,Justin Allen said:Another one coming off the coast of Africa, this will be the one to watch.
I agree Kevin but my post at the time was really based not so much on forecast but on the fact that the disturbance was already moving NW. I felt it was going to be at a latitude that was too far north, while the storm was still too close to Africa, to ever be on a typical Cape Verde hurricane path that threatens the islands or US.James,Tues. 8-27, the NHC had Dorian reaching Florida as a 70mph Tropical Storm, on 8-31...
Sat.,it was a Cat 5 just east of the Bahamas.
Still, at this present time, numerical models run 'poor' this far out,w/ tropical entities.
