Tropics Still Heating Up

The hurricane center is tracking 4 areas of disturbed weather today. Two are close to home, but the most active two areas are still way out in the open waters of the Atlantic.

My little sister just flew in from Tampa and went over the area of disturbed weather in the northeast Gulf of Mexico -- she said it was quite a bumpy ride from Tampa to Atlanta.

I am down here in Arkansas for a visit before heading to Dallas for a meeting with work on Monday.

I have been amazed at how nice it is for mid-August. Highs in the mid to upper 80s with relatively low humidity.

It has been nice.

I read a great article in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society recently about enhanced upslope snowfall patterns in the southern Appalachians due to a northwest flow of winds aloft.

The article used over 500 data points for the study, and several of those were area CoCoRaHS observers.

So way to go for those observers in east Tennessee, western North Carolina and vicinity!!
