But it’s not really a tropical system...it’s a subtropical system that’s interacting with the gulf stream....if it had time, it might get tropical, but it probably won’t.

Non-tropical systems can wreak havoc, produce gale and hurricane type winds (ask New Englanders about this)...but they aren’t driven exactly the same way as tropical storms.

Even though they aren’t tropical, they can really, really put the hurt on the coastal areas, especially with beach erosion.

There’s a wiki about these types of storms:

Oh I can hear the MMGW fanatics now. Even though this is NOT a tropical system, their going to call it the first tropical depression, “One of the earliest tropical systems in history”, etc., etc.

I agree. Just as soon as the liberals stop blaming Bush for every little, itsy, bitsy, thing that goes wrong in every corner of our solar system, we should stop also!!

There are a lot of folks in South Georgia and North Florida who would be happy to take the damage from a tropical storm in order to get some rain.

The fires must be pretty bad. I’m here only 6 years, and this is the first time I have seen this in my area.

We are in a transition from El Nino to La Nina. This means that the upper winds caused by El Nino that blow across the Caribbean and Gulf from the Pacific which shear the tops of tropical storms will be diminishing. This will allow greater formation of tropical storms.

Nothing to do with Al Gore's global warming.

transition from ENSO-neutral to La Niña conditions is possible within the next 3 months

This is, off course, off the topic of course, but how far north of the tropic does a typical non-tropical tropical depression have to get before it can’t become a typical tropical tropical depression or becomes a non-typical non-tropical tropical depressions?

If a non-typical non-tropical tropical depression gets over it, does it become a non-typical tropical high?

We’ve had some incredible surf in Indialantic, FL. With the wind out of the west today, it may actually give some good sufring conditions. Anyway, the Hurricane shutters were installed on the new condo last week.....bring it on. :D

The NHC has now issued 90L Invest, which usually means they think it might intensify. If named, it would be Andrea and she’s getting might close to Florida’s east coast:

No, I think it’s like a tattoo. Once it’s stuck with being tropical, then that’s it.
