yes, Yes, YEs, YES!!!!!!!!!! Waves making waves, what a wonderful world:)
cool paragraph to read:
"Like the ocean, the atmosphere also has waves. Large-scale atmospheric waves form over Africa during the African summer monsoon season, track east to west, and emerge over the Atlantic Ocean near the Cape Verde Islands, where they often serve as the nucleus for a powerful Cape Verdes-type hurricane. Well, the African Easterly Wave Factory is exceptionally busy right now, and there are three very impressive looking waves with plenty of spin lined up across the continent (Figure 3).
The western-most wave, just coming off the coast of Africa today, is particularly impressive. This system has a very large circulation with plenty of spin, and is already developing some concentrated heavy thunderstorms over the waters south of the Cape Verde Islands. This morning's QuikSCAT pass saw winds of 50 mph near the heaviest thunderstorms. Wind shear is a moderate 10-20 knots over the storm, and is expected to remain in the low to moderate range the next few days. NHC has given this system a medium (20%-50%) chance of developing into a tropical depression by Saturday. The models have been very aggressive developing this system over the past few days, and chances are good that this system will become a large and powerful Cape Verdes-type hurricane next week."
I have lived on all three coast and the third coast gets a bad profile from people like yourself. You take what you can get and Texas has a great surf culture.
If the storm stays on its predicted path...how long do you think the swell will stay around? Into friday perhaps? I know it wont be as good then but you get the point.
y did i even get my hopes up.. the forecasted path wont give us that overhead predictions...:(
path is looking terrible right now... is this going to throw us any swell?
