THEY'VE DONE IT AGAIN!


The Insensitive Meteorologists I mean. Ours reported that the High temps we were having were due to an area of:

DISTURBED WEATHER

off our Coast. What disturbed it? Did it hear about the Oil Splill?
He also mentioned something I think is an Oxymoron- a BACK DOOR FRONT!!!  WT????

POPCORN- Thunderstorms in SC. These literally POP up in one spot and may dump 1-3 inches of rain in a 5 mile area and not a drop anywhere else. These are about 5-7,000 feet-mere Babies. The Bigguns get to 30-40,000 feet, produce Hail, and 50 mph winds. These did not even form at all! They just disappeared!

SO!!

Should I watch the back door- or the front? Now I don't mind a Little DENSE FOG- that he reported on earlier, but a Disturbed- Back Door Front- well that has me a little concerned. It also seems that all of these "Weather-makers" are LOW's. OK--I can buy that--you get a little distressed you get a little low. Then it becomes a DEEPENING or DEVELOPING LOW! OMG- RUN!

Now for the Biggie!

It's HURRICANE SEASON_ OUUUUUHHHHH! SPOOKY!

As if we can't see them coming for hundreds of miles, and DAYS away!! Why don't we seed them with Prozac when they are "Tropical Depressions"?????? Maybe we could raise their self esteem and they wouldn't tear across Jamaica sucking up all that RUM, and then hitting the Hot OILY Gulf and sobering up and getting the shakes!

Then they will hear all about the Oil, Get REALLY PISSED-More DEPRESSED, DEEPER in a funk and haul butt ashore and wreak havock.

These aren't like illegals that are sneaking across the border. They form out in the open, and we can send AIRPLANES into them. Sneaky aren't they!? I say send in the Welbutrin, or the Chantix--give them their Nicotine fix and see if they won't chill, and not go Postal on the US!

Here are the ACCURATE AND SPOT ON PREDICTIONS!!!!!!!

14- to 23--NOW there's a pinpoint number-- Named Storms!

8-14 Hurricanes--Hmmmmmm... about 50/50?????

3 to 7   ????? COULD be MAJOR HURRICANES!  50/50 again?

“If this outlook holds true, this season could be one of the more active on record,” said Jane Lubchenco, Ph.D., under secretary of commerce for oceans and atmosphere and NOAA administrator. “The greater likelihood of storms brings an increased risk of a landfall. In short, we urge everyone to be prepared.”
The outlook ranges exceed the seasonal average of 11 named storms, six hurricanes and two major hurricanes. Expected factors supporting this outlook are:

BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Upper atmospheric winds conducive for storms. Wind shear, which can tear apart storms, will be weaker since El NiƱo in the eastern Pacific has dissipated. Strong wind shear helped suppress storm development during the 2009 hurricane season.
  • Warm Atlantic Ocean water. Sea surface temperatures are expected to remain above average where storms often develop and move across the Atlantic. Record warm temperatures – up to four degrees Fahrenheit above average – are now present in this region.
  • High activity era continues. Since 1995, the tropical multi-decadal signal has brought favorable ocean and atmospheric conditions in sync, leading to more active hurricane seasons. Eight of the last 15 seasons rank in the top ten for the most named storms with 2005 in first place with 28 named storms. 
8 of last 15????       about 50/50??????????
