I am collecting locations now on a first-come, first-serve basis. I will accomodate all forecasts, but the advantage of signing up first is your forecast will be one of the first issued!

I am collecting locations now, and forecasts will be made later on. Publishing of these forecasts is TBD, but likely in November.


Hurricane Ileana Poses Threat to California

Latest model tracks indicate that Hurricane Ileana, a Category 1 hurricane with winds of 75 MPH and a central pressure of 987 millibars, making this system a minimal hurricane.

Ileana is forecast to weaken today out of hurricane strength, as models differ greatly on the track. There are a few that take the system into California, where it could move north and affect the Plains and Midwest later on, like Isaac will do.

It should be noted that the 0z GFS agrees with this idea.


Invest 98 Spins in East Atlantic

Invest 98 is currently swirling in the eastern Atlantic, roughly around 41W, 14N. The system has winds of 30 knots and is currently moving west-northwestward.

Latest model tracks indicate that Invest 98 will not pose a threat to land, instead continuing a northwest track and going out to sea. Notice the high level clouds on the western side of the system. The Invest is very close to reaching tropical depression strength, and may do so today.
