I hereby withdraw my earlier prediction that a blob over Mali and Niger would be the next named Atlantic storm. Instead, I think it will be this one right here:
We shall name it Karl. If it forms into a tropical storm soon. Expect that by Thursday.
you are going to die for all your lies…
Gonna get soggy in the Yucatan, development or not…
dmab: Are you still in Canada or should I start checking for suspicious characters following me?
bcoppola: And central Mexico, likely, as well.
I just looked at a very long term track model for Julia, and it is interesting: It could recurve back to the region it first formed. This could be one of those strange cases where the hurricane does a Lazarus, or merges with a second system. Might have to go to the hyphenated name rule.
“dmab: Are you still in Canada or should I start checking for suspicious characters following me?”
If I ever recognize you out and about in Maple Grove, I’m going to make sure I introduce myself like “Are you Greg Laden? Don’t worry, I’m not dmab.”
Because I am probably a suspicious looking character.
Karl’s way ahead of you Greg, at least according to the NHC. Already named as a tropical depression.
Morejello: Cool. But I should mention that these blog posts are written at a certain time and then the words stay the same, so at the time I wrote this post Karl the TD did not exist!
I’m practically in Maple Grove right this second!
For about four or five days the SHIPS intensity forecast has predicted that it’s going to intensify into a tropical storm, but it took until today for it to happen.
It’s a Tropical Storm and it could even become a hurricane.
Thankfully Igor will not be hitting the North Carolina coast, or any USA land.
Ah yeah. Sorry Greg, I forgot that some of these posts are scheduled. I was going strictly by the posting time. Besides, my intent was just to let you know it was named, not to say that you were wrong in some way.
