Tropical Storm Ana

Tropical storm Ana should land about 60 miles south of Wilmington at about noon on Sunday.  That means here in Wilmington we are going to take the strongest quadrant.  The storm sat on warm water for about 2 days and got a bit stronger but must now travel over some colder water.

Prepare for strong wind, 40 to 50mph, spotty power outages, outside furniture blown around...You know the drill, downed tree limbs, and bad road conditions.

96L, The Possible Cristobal...

Deegle and myself have been fighting about this one. 

To me, 96L looks like it's getting tore up by winds and running into all kinds of unfavorable conditions...

Deegle, on the other hand is convinced it's coming to North Carolina...

Being that I can type and she cant, I WIN....

Will "Deegle the Weather Dog" prevail again.  We will keep a close watch on this storm and update as needed.

Bertha, Deegle Makes the Call....

Bertha has even lost Deegle's attention.  This is a fish storm.  Bertha will not hit the Eastern Coast of the United States.  We will feel no effect.  Bermuda should keep an eye on the storm, but I doubt they will have a problem with Bertha either. Watch the storm miss everything here... Have a nice day...

Deegle Out..................


Bertha will become stronger and may even make it to Hurricane status, Category 1 at the most.  Watch this right hook as it speeds  out to the Northeast... Bertha will bloom, but just for a moment...

Dogs training Humans...

 

We always think that we, as humans, are always in control of everything happening around us.  We control our jobs, our finances, our daily routines, and on and on...We control everything, oops...                                                               
 
We are so important that we effect the weather, the climate and cause "Global Warming". We control the animals, the plants, the resources of the planet and on and on...  
 
Funny thing is we are just another life form on this planet and we believe that we control everthing. What gives us the right to view ourselves as this important???
 
It's not the cockroaches that will rule the world, it's the Dogs.  Why to you think GOD named our little friends DOG.

Hurricane Arthur, Deegle makes the Call.....

Deegle's Call:   Arthur will not hit land, there will be no landfall...There will however, be rain and wind all up the coast of North Carolina.  Florida - Light wind and rain, no impact... Georgia - Moderate wind and rain, no impact... North Carolina - Moderate wind and heavy rain... 
Wilmington North Carolina - Dont change your holiday plans, Arthur will pass us as a Category 1 Hurricane on Thursday Night and be gone by Friday Night. Have a great 4th of July.  We will have significant wind and rain starting Thursday afternoon and lasting through Friday morning. You should still bring in any patio furniture or anything that could fly around with 40 to 45 mph winds. Be prepared for brief power disruptions caused by small weak trees or small falling branches.  If you dont have a Hurricane Kit at this time, dont worry about it, but you need to get one after this storm...
 
Cape Hatteras North Carolina - Hatteras will be the closest non-landfall Deegle has ever seen, we are talking a miss by 5 to 10 miles.  Hatteras needs to prepare for a Catergory 2 Hurricane, strong wind, heavy sustained rain, power outages, storm surge etc.  You need to treat this storm as a landfalling storm.  If the track moves just a little you will take a direct hit.

91L, Bad News Folks, Will this be Arthur???


This is a picture of Fran, from a long, long time ago.  What we are looking at now is the possible formation of Tropical Storm Arthur.  Deegle is watching this low pressure system very carefully. This system has the possibility of messing up our 4th of July Weekend in Wilmington North Carolina and that is unacceptable.  Here's the deal...This is Deegle's post from last Thursday, just so you know she's on the job...The last few loops from the satellite pictures show a organized circulation and the thunderstorms are starting to form at the center.  This storm is still a baby, even though it's 300 to 400 miles wide.
The pressure in this low pressure system is kind of high, 1011 millibars at this time.  There is some wind sheer coming from the northeast, and some dry air directly to the north.  There is a stationary high pressure system over the southeast United States to the left of the storm and a high pressure system over the Atlantic Ocean to the right of the storm.  What a mess, right?
 
Follow the storm:
 
 
Possibilities:
 
1)  The system crashes into Florida as a bunch of thunderstorms and dies...Unlikely
2)  The conditions become favorable, the two high pressure systems stay stationary and the system rides up the coast, staying out to sea and giving Wilmington a good rain storm, lots of wind and some minor damage...Likely
3)  The conditions become favorable, the high pressure system over the southeast United States stays stationary and the high pressure system over the Atlantic moves slightly west.  This is what we don't want to see, this would result in a landfall in North Carolina, anywhere from south of Wilmington to the Outer Banks...Very Likely
 
Deegle is not making the call yet, here are her thoughts.
 
91L will become a Tropical Depression very early Tuesday Morning or sometime in the early afternoon on Tuesday.  It will drift toward the Florida Coast before gaining strength, the thunderstorms will build, the pressure will drop and it will turn to the northwest, then the north and then to the northeast. On Wednesday it will become Tropical Storm Arthur. To Deegle, it looks like a Strong Tropical Storm landfall in North Carolina between the 3rd of July to the 5th of July.
 
The question is, where is Jim Cantori???? I'll bet he's at the Shell Island Resort in Wrightsville Beach...
 
Deegle on the case, updates to follow....
