    This guy believes that the wave will develop into a tropical depression but read below:

    "...but I expect 98L will be able to overcome this dry air and shear and organize into a tropical depression. Thursday is the earliest this would happen. The UKMET [United Kingdom Meteorological Office computer model- similar to ones listed in my previous post] is the only model that develops 98L into a tropical depression.
    98L is nearly stationary, and it will be at least six days before it will threaten the Lesser Antilles Islands (see below...a pretty darn big area-islands in green). A strong trough of low pressure will pass north of 98L Tuesday and Wednesday, which could impart a more northwesterly motion to the storm."

    Unfortunately got a crash course on hurricanes when my parents had two pass over them in Florida. Frances was the worst. Very tough not hearing from loved ones for 3 days and not knowing whether they are dead or alive. We sometimes forget the real damage hurricanes can do. You cannot tell from the first picture on the left, but their roof was condemned. Our new neighbors here in GA. fled FL entirely. They lived a few miles from my parents and lost everything.

    pictures do speak for themselves sometimes don't they?!


    thus, my anxiety re: hurricanes!

    off topic off topic...........................i don't like the smilie's frown....when paul and i made the decision to retire in november of '08, Florida was totally out of the running as a location to live. We love Florida, especially the Tampa Bay area.....Clearwater, Belleair, Dunedin. But the homeowner's insurance premiums for a modest home a mile from the gulf or intercoastal, was astronomical.

    That tropical system 98 we discussed yesterday has disappeared off of the map. Today's gorgeous weather in Aruba is pay back for the clouds and rain from Felix.

    To much time??

    Dannyo,
    Thinks we might have too much time on our hand...
    I think hurricains are valid but if we start with monitoring caribbean tsunami's like the one in 1918 from an earthquake in puerto rico
    http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/seg/hazard/...vel_time.shtml

    A book for the beach
    http://books.google.com/books?id=OVz...cd=3#PPA136,M1

    or solar flares and suntan lotion, then maybe he's right...

    Now back to jeeps, restaurants and palapas
    enjoy your day..

    TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
    NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
    1130 AM EDT MON SEP 10 2007
    A BROAD AREA OF LOW PRESSURE...ASSOCIATED WITH A TROPICAL WAVE AND LOCATED ABOUT MIDWAY BETWEEN THE CAPE VERDE ISLANDS AND THE LESSER ANTILLES...IS PRODUCING A LARGE AREA OF CLOUDINESS AND THUNDERSTORMS. THIS SYSTEM IS GRADUALLY BECOMING BETTER ORGANIZED AND HAS THE POTENTIAL TO DEVELOP INTO A TROPICAL DEPRESSION DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS IT MOVES WESTWARD TO WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 10-15 MPH.

    Cool dragon!
    Invest 91 is still doing it's thing. Definitely on the weather news in Florida for "keep an eye on".
    Clearly not a threat to Aruba.
