    btw bro did you really refer to it as Hurricane BelMar at your local break? That's excellent.

    Yup, I dropped the Bel Mar bomb on them. I had to do it. There are a few people from on here, and if I continue to randomly drop Bel Mar references in the lineup, we will unite in our SI glory.

    Carribbean wind shear will take hold of this one.
    Can't believe you guys are hyping a storm that's not even a TD yet...

    From Weather.com

    ATLANTIC

    The area of low pressure in the middle of the Atlantic (Invest 93-L) remains well organized but thunderstorms have been largely absent for much of the day. Although tempting to chalk this up to the presence of dry air, the disturbance has been riding south within a modestly humid environment, as shown by mid-level water vapor satellite. A bigger factor is likely the upper 70 and near 80 degree ocean waters (much cooler than average) that are helping to enhance stability near the circulation, thereby capping the growth to thunderstorms.

    A recent satellite pass shows a closed circulation but the winds around that circulation remain weak. If thunderstorms redevelop near or over the circulation, the small uptick in winds would likely make this a Tropical Depression, so development odds are still high. That said, weather models are backing off earlier, more aggressive forecasts and the environment ahead now looks only somewhat conducive to strengthening.

    (MORE: Latest on Potential Atlantic Development)

    The steering will take the system toward the Lesser Antilles by this weekend, but the strength of the system will dictate whether it takes a more northerly (stronger) or southerly (weaker) track.

    Bottom line: some good news in the trends but near term development odds remain high.

    Is there any truth to that? Was ARthur the first of 02'? The locals here told me Bertha Yesterday, I corrected them about the whole Bel Mar thing. Silly me if they were being serious.

    Now that's a idea of course when you mention belmar they will be confused as **** if not a swellie. But this will be the new sop to identify other members. Viva la south.
