    • Good morning! Another beautiful day is in store for today and another one after that, and after that and.... well, you get it. 🙂 As you can see from this infrared satellite image, the southeast is relatively clear this morning as we're caught in the NW flow around an upper level low to the north and a ridge over the central part of the country. Further south over central America and Mexico is the CAG or Central American Gyre that may spawn a tropical system for the Gulf of Mexico. If you are inquisitive and want to learn more, I have several links from Philippe Papin (Philippe is from our part of the world here in the southeast) as he is the "expert" on these systems. A Climatology of Central American Gyres Philippe's Final Thesis   This mornings Euro ensemble run has a lot of members that indicate a potential hurricane (red lines) and the number of members showing this have been going up daily. It's too early to tell what if any effect this will have on our weather right now, but it's the only real piece of weather to talk about. 😊 So for us right now, it looks pretty much like this.   Until our tropical system decides to make a move, that's about it.  Have a GREAT Sunday! 🙂  
    • Red ensemble members indicate a potential hurricane.   
    • Good morning! Not much to talk about for the next 5-6 days. Sunny skies and warm temperatures will be the norm and we're off to a great one already! I'm sitting here being blinded by the sun as I type so that is what I'm blaming all my typing and grammar mistakes on. 😉  This mornings map shows water vapor and you can see that the moisture has pushed south of us taking the rain and clouds with it.   Still following the potential tropical system in the Gulf. These are Euro ensemble probability maps. These first two maps cover the same period which is the next 48-96 hours ending Tuesday 8 PM. The first map shows the probability for a tropical depression and the second map shows the probability for a tropical storm.   What has started to show up today are very low chances for a hurricane.   I found this today and thought it was interesting.    I hope everyone has a great Saturday, enjoy the next 5 to 6 sunny days! Oh... and don't forget that meteorological summer starts Monday! 🙂  
    • One more rain shower and we should be about done for the day. (EDIT: "Done" not down" 🙂 )
    • Depends. A high in the middle of the country might steer it toward the west. It also would depend on the shape of the high (tall, wide, etc). Too early to speculate right now.
