Tropical Storm Arthur forms off coast of Florida; 1st named storm of the Atlantic season.
Tropical weather ping!
Global Warming, Climate Change and Global Cooling combined to create this horrendously potentially dangerous reaction from Mother Nature in response to my driving a frigging truck that gets 18 MPG.....
Cue Arthur’s theme song, “The Best That You Can Do”
by Chris Cross
Arthur he does what he pleases...
How do the liberals explain that we had violent hurricanes and various extreme weather, long before we had coal fired power plants and SUVs driving around???
During the last ice age, Chicago was buried under a mile of ice. Didn’t it take global warming to melt all of that ice? Would we be better off if all of that ice didn’t melt? Is global warming necessarily a bad thing, since we needed global warming to end the ice ages in earth’s history?????
Maybe I’ll stop by the local Arthur Treacher’s and pick up some fish and chips!
As we all know, tropical storms and hurricanes did not occur before global warming.
Libs already screaming and pulling their hair out.
Chicago would definitely have been better off had that ice not melted.
Latest discussion (doesn’t look real good for Hatteras if it strengthens more than they think - which is what Bastardi believes):

TROPICAL STORM ARTHUR DISCUSSION NUMBER 3
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL012014
1100 AM EDT TUE JUL 01 2014
Radar and satellite imagery indicate that the convective
organization of the cyclone has improved since the previous
advisory, and the cyclone is being upgraded based on a sustained
wind report of 33 kt from Settlement Point (SPGF1) on Grand Bahama
Island earlier this morning that was outside of the deep convection.
After remaining nearly stationary earlier this morning, Arthur
appears to to be drifting northwestward now with an uncertain motion
of 315/02 kt. Otherwise, there is no significant change to the
previous forecast track. The latest model guidance has continued the
trend of a pronounced mid-tropospheric trough digging southeastward
from the upper-midwest into the northeastern and mid-Atlantic region
of the United States by 72 hours. The 500 mb flow pattern is almost
identical in the GFS and ECMWF models, which increases the
confidence in this evolving pattern. As a result, a steady increase
in southwesterly steering flow over the southeastern United States
is expected to gradually turn the tropical cyclone northward over
the next 24-36 hours, and then accelerate the system faster toward
the northeast on Thursday and Friday. By Days 4 and 5, Arthur is
forecast to move over the far north Atlantic as an extratropical
cyclone. The NHC track forecast is just an update of the previous
advisory track, and lies down the middle of the tightly packed
guidance envelope close to the consensus model TVCA.
Northwesterly vertical wind shear is forecast by the models to
gradually subside over the next 48 hours, which should allow the
cyclone to develop its own upper-level outflow pattern. In fact,
latest visible and water vapor imagery indicates that cirrus
outflow has been expanding on the north side of the system during
the past few hours, suggesting that the shear conditions could
already be subsiding. The low shear conditions and warm
sea-surface temperatures should allow for at least steady
strengthening, and the cyclone is expected to become a hurricane by
72 hours. The official intensity forecast is similar to the
latest intensity model consensus IVCN through 36 hours, and then
slightly higher after that.

Oddly, there are two UNNAMED storms off the West Coast. One of them is bigger than this one.
You mean without the Daley machine, Rahm Emmanuel, Jeremiah Wright, and Barack Obama? You surely raise up a dilemma...
You’re an environmental criminal!
But the Climate Change Channel is so excited because they finally have something to talk about....
Lol, pretty much sums it up, except I might remind to add in there, breathing! That caused it as well ;-)
Sheesh - and people think Bastardi is an alarmist... at least he's honest about giving scenarios that are all about trying to inform people for the sake of saving lives.
Let’s be inclusive. Tropical Storm Arturo.
When I went to bed last night, this thing was falling apart with loss of its circular pattern. In 12 hours, it’s reorganized and grown enough to be named. Although most tracks have it going off to the east, it still bears watching for the July 4 weekend if it gets large enough to affect the coast.
From a prior RUSH transcript:
RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, I have something, we're going to post this at RushLimbaugh.com immediately. The webmaster is waiting on it. Algore has a new book out. It's called Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis. And this book, according to our official climatologist here, Dr. Roy Spencer, University of Alabama at Huntsville, formerly of NASA, Dr. Spencer tells me that this Gore book is a metaphor for his twisting of reality to suit his needs. He took some NASA imagery of the earth and Photoshopped the following into it. And we've got a website here with both pictures: the original snapshot of the earth from NASA, and then the way Gore Photoshopped it. And here's what's on the picture that's Photoshopped: four hurricanes that were not there. The hurricane closest to Florida is spinning in the wrong direction. The hurricane off of South America is almost on the equator, which is physically impossible for hurricanes. All of the sea ice in the Arctic Ocean is removed, but snow cover over Canada and Alaska remains. Cuba, in Gore's Photoshopped picture of the earth, Cuba doesn't exist. It is not there. Cuba is totally underwater, which would require a sea level rise of over 6,000 feet, which means Denver would be underwater as well. If Cuber is under water, so would be Denver! Now, half of the Greenland ice sheet is gone, but it's out of the center; the thickest part, rather than around the edges, where it's the thinnest. It's a joke! This man is an absolute joke! He's Photoshopped a picture of the earth.
Someone call the government, OH GOD!!!!!!
It is because Chris McDaniel will not concede his “defeat” by Felonious Thad in the Mississippi runoff election.
Now, when Arthur fizzles and only manages to dampen our July 4th weekend, but Bertha (or Barbara or Bunny or Belinda) wreaks havoc in a few weeks, the FemiNazis will screech that you name all the bad storms for women!
Bastardi did talk about this low pressure center this past Saturday.
You East Coasters should really watch his past Saturday summary because current atmospheric and ocean conditions are similar to that of that of the 1950s when the East Coast was pummeled by hurricanes. He’s expecting 1 or 2 major hurricanes, 2-4 hurricanes, and 3-6 storms to hit there.
We just had one open here...is it worth it? What’s their best item?
Haven’t been there in a very long time so I can’t really answer your questions. Take a look at reviews online.
There was an article posted here last month that said hurricanes named after women were deadlier because people didn’t take the names seriously. So they use Arthur. Come on.
Run! Run to LOWER ground! When you reach the beach, fall upon your knees and pray for forgiveness from GAIA. Beg for mercy and absolution - foreswear GAIA harming indulgences. Swear allegiance to liberaldom and eschew conservatism, pledging only for the collective. Pray for your very soul [er, uh, that’s not right - liberals don’t believe in things like souls, else they’d think twice about those 50 million souls they aborted already]. Anyway, pray [well, not actually pray to God, but maybe Allah or something.]
NOAA has decided to honor Dudley Moore this summer.
Next hurricane; Bo
The storm names are selected years in advance and alternate between male and female names.
LIV folks would find the movie “Arthur” funnier than my grandmother (who was actually named Bertha, rest her soul!)
FYI: Bastardi will be on Cavuto at 4:20pm today.
It got a male name! Ohhhh, we’re all so scared we’re gonna run and hide and not get hurt.
Good thing it don’t got a female name, or we wouldn’t care and we wouldn’t take shelter and we all gon get killed.
July 4 is a huge week for OBX businesses. Hate to see them take a hit during this time.
Between this storm and the NPS restricting beach driving (impacts fall fishing season) the Bankers have a tough row to hoe this year.
Awful Arthur is coming. New York should evacuate NOW! There might be....rain, and wind!!
Well, in the case of Chicago, yes... ;-)
If this thing keeps drifting west it’s going to be on my doorstep soon.
It was you? That’s a relief. I was told, to the horror of mecaccompanying children, that I was causing this. The checkout woman at whole foods told me so when I confessed I didnt bring my bags from home
Well, the kids weren’t that horrified. They told me I was wrong for not going the the checkout lined manned by the guy. They tell me the guys don’t care
How do libs explain?
Like they do everything. They get into rage status and hug and puff and tel you you’re stupid
“1st named storm of the Atlantic season”
Which means that it’ll be the first storm blamed on global warming, uh, I mean “climate change”.
it will be labeled “super storm Arthur” because it will cause a drizzle and a cloudy day.
and it will be GWBush’s fault.
Be on your toes Outer Banks. Forecasted winds up to 90MPH and likely to go higher.

TROPICAL STORM ARTHUR DISCUSSION NUMBER 4
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL012014
500 PM EDT TUE JUL 01 2014
Although radar and satellite imagery indicate that the convective
pattern of Arthur has changed little since the previous advisory...
an Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft investigating the
cyclone this afternoon has found that flight-level and SFMR surface
winds in the southeastern quadrant that support increasing the
intensity to 45 kt. In fact, the flight crew has been been bounced
around pretty good by strong thunderstorms in that area and have
been forced to climb to a higher altitude in order to avoid
Arthur has been drifting northwestward at 325/02 kt. No significant
change has been made to the previous forecast track or reasoning.
The latest reliable numerical models remain in good agreement on
large mid-level trough digging southeastward into the northeastern
and mid-Atlantic states during the next 72 hours, while a
subtropical ridge east of the Carolinas gradually strengthens. The
combination of these two systems is expected to steadily increase
the southwesterly steering flow over the southeastern United States
and the extreme western Atlantic. By Days 4 and 5, Arthur is
forecast to accelerate rapidly northeastward ahead of the
aforementioned trough as an extratropical cyclone. The official
forecast track is again just an update of the previous advisory
track, and remains in the middle of the tightly packed guidance
envelope and close to the consensus model TVCA.
Northwesterly vertical wind shear is expected to gradually abate
over the next 48 hours, allowing Arthur to develop an upper-level
outflow pattern that is conducive to strengthening. The primary
inhibiting factor will be the occasional intrusions of dry mid-level
air to the north of the cyclone penetrating into the center and
briefly disrupting the inner-core convection. However, the global
and regional models are forecasting the inner core region to
moisten significantly by 36-48 hours, which should allow Arthur to
strengthen into a hurricane while the cyclone is over warm SSTs and
in light shear conditions. After 72 hours, Arthur will be be moving
over cooler water and is forecast to experience vertical wind shear
in excess of 30 kt, which should induce at least steady weakening.
The NHC intensity forecast closely follows the consensus model IVCN.
