    New African tropical wave may develop late this week
    A tropical wave expected to leave the coast of Africa on Tuesday could develop into a tropical depression by next weekend, a few hundred miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands, predicted the 00Z Monday runs of the UKMET and European models.

    The Sahara Desert dust and dry air machine will be moderately active during the week, and development of this new tropical wave will likely be hindered by dry air.

    The long-range models are showing a west-northwesterly track for this storm into the Central Atlantic to a location where few storms ever become a threat to the Lesser Antilles Islands.

    Ha! Thanks Yankee. Made what was otherwise a very mediocre day tied up with awfulness, really perk up

    Here is the latest from NHC:


    1. A tropical wave located near the west coast of Africa is producing
    disorganized cloudiness and thunderstorms. A low pressure area
    is expected to form in association with the wave several hundred
    miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands in a couple of days.

    Environmental conditions are conducive for gradual development, and
    a tropical depression could form by the weekend while the system
    moves west-northwestward to northwestward toward the central
    tropical Atlantic.

    * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent
    * Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent

    Let's see how it does with the Saharan dust and the dry air. You might recall, a month ago or so I predicted that on Sept 14, a hurricane wold develop off coast of Florida and move off shore up the entire east coast bringing overhead waves. Even to Barry.

    If it comes true, I will quit work and start betting on horses.

    Dear SI Overlords,

    You have a gold mine available. Hire Betty to do the extended FUcast, and then pay for her to follow the storm giving after action reports\interviews on the swell. Hire Frankie to travel in front of the storm's path and give people the proper instructions for dealing with their impending doom.

    "Frankie and Betty's Top Shelf StormCast!"...

    Ok that was lame, but I'm not a marketing guy. You'll have to figure that out on your own.

    Betty could even interview actual SI members as they come in from catching the swell.

    We can discuss my fees via PM....

    I would think that associating Betty with Frankie is a bit of an insult to Betty, isn't it??

    A tropical wave located just west of the Cabo Verde Islands is
    accompanied by a large area of cloudiness and disorganized shower
    activity. Significant development of this system is not expected
    during the next couple of days. However, conditions could become
    a little more favorable for gradual development, and a tropical
    depression could form early next week while this system moves
    westward and then west-northwestward into the central Atlantic.

    * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent
    * Formation chance through 5 days...medium...60 percent

    Don't tell the authorities.

    They'll close the ocean again.

    Go Betty!
