Tropical Storm Aletta To Quickly Weaken in Midst of Dry Jet Stream

This image is from the ADT agency, or Advanced Dvorak Technique, from the CIMSS Tropical Cyclone tracking page. In the red and blue boxes, we have the center of the system. Notice the convection still ongoing around the front flank of the system. These storms should quickly dissipate as they approach and are sucked into the jet stream. The track continus to call for a general west northwestward direction before a turn to the north and eventually northeast as the jet stream takes hold.

That storm has never looked too healthy. At least the Pacific got the first storm. My area is under see text today, again. Nothing big developed yesterday. Got a nice amount of rain though./

I am rooting for a tropical hit later this month. The Southeast definitely could use the rain./ Plus it would really make things exciting./
