Hi everybody, Dr. Rob Carver filling in for Jeff while he's on vacation.

Things have quieted down in the tropics. No invests are active, and the tropical waves at sea don't have many thunderstorms associated with them. However, the moisture associated with Alex and TD Two is still bring widespread showers to Mexico/Texas which is contributing to flooding alon the Rio Grande. Here are several videos documenting the troubles along the Rio Grande.









Finally, here's a story about relief efforts in northern Mexico for villages cutoff by flood damaged roads and bridges.


Next update
Jeff should be back on Monday. Have a good weekend.

MH, think about it, but don't take each word literally. "The world" could mean so many things- not literally the dirt we stand on, but also what we consider our world to be- our surroundings, our culture, what we are used to, our way of live.

"The ending" could also mean a change, a metamorophasis. The catipillar ends, his world ends, but look what happens afterwards.

So think in broader terms, not literally.
Ahhh, I see what you mean. Since most of the stuff I hear is "the end of the world" I automatically think "the end". Oh well, I guess we'll find out soon...

But do you really think that the world is going to end in 2012? I really see no factual proof of that. Same thing happened in 2000, and guess what we are still here. Also, this crust shift thing supposedly happens every 30,000 years. If that's going to kill us, how come we all didn't die 30,000 years ago? All that stuff doesn't make much sense to me as it is just talk.

That was a completely different set of events 2000 was had to do with the computer systems shutting down. 2012 is a whole different animal. I don't really buy into the whole "Dooms day" bit but I do believe there will be some huge changes, some maby catastrophic, but we're already seeing that now so.. ehh..


Or, you'll wake up on December 13, 2012, realize everything is just as crappy as it always was, and wonder what the hubbub was all about...

12z ECMWF 196 hours out. Probably a Tropical Storm on the 19th. I'm fairly confident in saying judging by the ECMWF's consistency on the wave that we'll eventually see at least a very interesting and well organized wave by next week.


oh! where?

i just attended an EOC meeting our new noaa weatherman, stated that @ 48+ hours out there model forecasts can been off by as much as 20mph +/-, which could mean the difference between an upgrade or downgrade in category
What I saw was a 950mb pressure and 140 mph winds. We got REAL lucky with Alex this year. It was and really continues to be bad in MX, but it could have been so much worse.
