To be amending the hurricane forecast mid-October seems a bit more like reporting than forecasting.

My mistake, that was from 2010. Still I see to recall alarms earlier this year that it was going to be terrible, we'd all die, etc.

A very calm year by any standard except for the hysteria about the rain storm they had on the E. coast.

Maybe they are playing safe and using last years for the forecast. Easier to get it right that way.
Don't worry about avoiding temptation. As you grow older, it will avoid you.

Yep, I remember reading about the terrible hurricane season they were predicting.  Missed it by a mile.

Wow, is this an early start (relying only on memory)?

Tropical Storm Alberto

At present it doesn't look like it'll turn into much with "weakening and dissipation in 2-3 days" but still, seems awfully early.

It's been mentioned in the last couple of days on local TV weather.  Last I heard of possible effects is some big waves and stiff winds but the track takes it off into the North Atlantic so they say.

The way the news is talking this tropical storm is going to be the end of Ga. and Fl.

Sheesh.

Man, looks like it's all but fallen apart on radar.  Maybe they're desperate for non-bad news for Obama?

On the positive side maybe it'll bring some long needed rain to that area that needs it so I hear.

Sure hope it doesn't bring rain here on the 30th or I'll have one disappointed daughter.

Wow, the models still seem to be all over the place but the local forecast has it coming this direction. This will not be good for oil prices.

Ah, wondered why the Atlantic had been so quiet.

Gee, the animated movement of that dude looks like it's headed our way. There's enough self generated dust out in W. Texas that we don't need any imported Saharan dust. I must say that's a biggie! And interesting because it has been awfully quiet out there.
