Tropics Talk

The 2009 Atlantic Hurricane season remains very quiet so far this year, but we are nearing the peak period for activity, which is late August through much of September.

So only time will tell.

However, it is getting a little busier in the east Pacific with several storms of late. The biggest so far has been Hurricane Felicia, which topped out at a category 4 storm yesterday.

Winds are back down to cat. 3 range this morning as it moves northwest and eventually making a due west turn.

That will bring it very close to the big island of Hawaii in a few days. It will be more of a remnant low pressure by then but will spread inclement weather over the island paradise as we head into next week.
