TFA: "There are six or seven blobs of thunderstorms marching across Africa right now, some of these will be tropical waves," Kottlowski said by telephone. "Next week looks very promising for development over the eastern Atlantic."

He sounds very excited by the prospect.

I'm having trouble finding much good "marching blobs" porn, but I guess whatever excites him...

What farking lull?  It's been monsoon season here in eastern NC.

I'm worried a hurricane with decent rainfall will hit us, and with the ground saturated it will be like Floyd all over again.

It's all part of the increased storm activity caused by climate warming

It's really rare, but we do get an occasional tornado in the puget sound area. Hurricanes on the other hand, are definitely things I'm glad I'll never have to deal w/ up here.

Suuuure subby,  big hurricane season is coming,  ok,  I'll get right on that.

"Sceaming"?

It's funny: I assume you meant "screaming" but "scheming" kind of works, too.

Climate is not the same thing as weather, Crackerjack.

That being said, yes, average temperatures for this time of the year have been significantly warmer, globally (your local conditions may vary).

SC has been downright chilly for the past 3 months.  I think we only had one day over 95 in the past month.  I tell you what, it better kick up a notch next week or there won't be a single hospitalized Citadel freshman .

Does anyone actually keep score with what the Hurricane predictions are what actually occurs?

Each year it seems the predictions are going to be forty leven named storms and a gaggle of category 17 will rake the east coast and killing millions.  Actually it ends up being...wel meh..a rainy weekend.

Just seems the "long term models" are not much better than a magic 8 ball.

It's been unseasonably chilly here for the last week.

Sharkicane. You heard it here first.

Of course, a storm could pick up all the unwanted snakes and iguanas in South Florida, giving them a ride from Miami to New York City. "It's raining lizards, ma!"

I'm going to the beach next week, so I just assumed that's when the hurricanes would start hitting.

a tornado touched down near Seattle in 1998.  in Elliot Bay, so they called it a water spout.
I worked in an office on the water front, but my cube was on the other side of the building.  My co-workers were all talking about how cool it looked.  sigh.

true story.
