Latest models predict tropical storm status within 24 hours, hurricane status within 96 hours.
The predicted track (except for LBAR) shows a patch similar to Bertha.
I hope LBAR Is wrong, and intensity models are correct...
Unlike bertha, its got no convection and is being ripped in half by SW winds that will either destroy it, or push it towards Ireland within 48 hours.
not even recognizable as a storm...
NHC isn't even looking at this low anymore. As of now the Atlantic is dead!!!
yeah, By the way, it seems like if that SHIPS intensity model was accurate, we'd have about 25 Atlantic Hurricanes per season, and Cape Hatteras would be the newest spot on the ASP tour right in between Chopes and J-Bay.
why would that be

Bertha was the fat aunt with a mustache.
Cristobal is going to muss up your hair and then make you a martini.

Next is Edouard. He's a tan, ripped nutritionist who's vying to be the next Mr. Universe. He has NO time for anything else.
I'm all for the re-classification of hurricane names the resemble villians in Bruce Lee movies!!
