Posted on 08/15/2009 3:31:52 AM PDT by NautiNurse
The 2009 Atlantic tropical season is heating up with Tropical Storm Ana forming about 1000 miles east of the Leeward Islands, and Invest 90, a large Cape Verde system showing substantial promise for development. Currently, neither of the two systems pose an immediate threat to land. Long term forecasts indicate potential threat to Florida, while a third tropical wave is poised off of the So. Florida coast.

Thank you so very much.
Thanks for the ping. It’s fun living in Florida this time of year...
It sure looks like everything out there has sights on Florida.
This deserves the picture displayed here on FR from time to time, “Awwwwwww Geeeeez, not this sh!t again”.
Hello from the Florida Keys, NautiNurse, and awaaaaaay we go.
Another year in paradise, another season of watch and wait.
Our condo is just finishing putting on a new roof...whew...here we go again...lets see how Obozo handles hurricaines.
this may be the crisis he is waiting for to ram through the healthcare while no one is looking...
Thanks for the ping, yup here we go, lol, right now looks like a fla storm. Still got those cute shutters?
Here we go again! Keep me on your list, please.
WE ALL GONNA DIE!
Still have them for posterity, while window protection has been
upgraded to the kevlar hurricane screens.
I don’t want to think about Obama campaigning in a field of hurricane debris. Creepy.
Spreading the wealth naturally since 2005.
LOL! The TOTUS administration and Congress are all Looter Guys.
Ahhh ... Let the games begin
Ana (potential Cat 1-2) is just clearing the path for the soon to be named Monster Bill (potential Cat 3-5) that is following behind. Not wishcasting, but almost all forecast models called for a major hurricane event even before it left the coast of Africa.
So TD2 came back from the dead. We still have to contend with 90L as well.

Invest 90, projected tracks:
Yep—Old Home Week. Seems like yesterday when last we bantered on a hurricane thread.
