    Kristina Pydynowski, Senior MeteorologistAugust 24, 2014 Tropical Storm Cristobal has taken shape and is expected to become a hurricane and impact the Atlantic beaches of the United States with hazardous conditions. Tropical Depression Four strengthened into Tropical Storm Cristobal at 6:20 a.m. EDT Sunday. Cristobal was churning near the southern Bahamas at that time. Cristobal is forecast to stay east of the U.S. this week. However the Atlantic coast will not be free of impacts from the tropical system. "Even if a tropical storm or hurricane was to stay east of the Atlantic coast of the U.S., a strong system...

    And now we have our first named storm of the season, Andrea... TS Andrea gained strength over the course of the day, becoming more organized; however the computer models form a consensus that the storm is not likely to reach Category 1 strength prior to landfall. Andrea is projected to make landfall along the Florida coast between Crystal River to Apalachicola, with the Big Bend area most likely target. Gulf Coast Florida is currently under a Tropical Storm Warning until 8PM Friday, from Boca Grande to Ochlocknee river. The southeast US coast is under a Tropical Storm Watch during the...

    Veteran hurricane-watchers know that, sometimes, a storm that seems to have most of the elements needed for intensification working in its favor — high ocean temperatures, low wind shear, good upper-level outflow — just seems unable to “get its act together,” and never gets nearly as strong as feared. Often times, the culprit is a “patch of dry air,” a sort of micro-scale atmospheric feature that the computer models have a tougher time capturing and forecasting than big, “macro” steering elements like big high pressure ridges and upper-level troughs. Yet patches of dry air can be critical in disrupting the...

No matter how strong it is, the media is going to turn this into one of the greatest disasters ever and probably give it to the RNC for throwing a party during it. Obama will be down there handing out water and they'll make him look like a god. People usually rally around the President during disasters.

    MIAMI (Reuters) - Hurricane Katia weakened to a tropical storm on Saturday and was forecast to wobble back and forth between hurricane and tropical storm strength far from land in the open Atlantic, forecasters said. > Katia did not threaten land and was out in the Atlantic, about 430 miles east-northeast of the Leeward Islands. It was moving west-northwest on a path that would take it safely west of the mid-Atlantic island of Bermuda on Thursday. Computer models showed it turning north after that and then northeast and away from the East Coast.

    Hurricane Irene made its second landfall, this one early Sunday in southern New Jersey, as the storm continued its relentless push toward New York City. Though the storm weakened as it moved up the Eastern Seaboard, it continued to funnel storm surge and flood water to the Jersey shore overnight, where the National Hurricane Center said the center of the storm crossed over land near Little Egg Inlet around 5:35 a.m., which is north of Atlantic City. The storm’s maximum sustained winds are estimated to be 75 miles per hour, making it a weak category one hurricane. The hurricane first...

    Irene may be the first hurricane to hit the East Coast in several years, but in one respect it is like all the others that have come and gone before it: forecasters have had difficulty predicting its strength. Officials with the National Hurricane Center warned Saturday that the storm was still capable of inflicting heavy damage, particularly from flooding, as it slogged toward New Jersey and New York. But they said it had decreased in intensity, with sustained wind speeds of about 80 miles an hour, down 15 miles an hour from 12 hours before. And they acknowledged that they...

The area of disturbed weather has winds of about 35 mph and is several hundred miles east of the Bahamas, but its winds could push more oil from the leaking well off Louisiana into the Loop Current. The storm's winds, circling counter-clockwise, would come from the north over the oil slick from the underwater gusher in the Gulf of Mexico starting Tuesday and possibly lasting into Thursday.

    The Atlantic is wakening up for a while, likely for the next couple of weeks. There are three main areas of concern that I am watching for possible development into tropical systems. First, we have tropical depression 2 which on satellite appears it could already be a tropical storm. Here is a look at some of that satellite analysis estimates on the strength of the current depression. A couple of the satellites are estimating that winds could be as strong as 55 knots and for a system to become a tropical storm it needs winds of 35 knots.

    From a scientific standpoint, we can't say for sure that Texas is due for a surge in hurricane activity. Mother Nature, after all, doesn't always obey mathematical probabilities. But let's face it, Texas is due. Since 1851, more than five dozen hurricanes have made landfall on the Texas coast. But in the 1990s and 2000s — a time when the Atlantic basin has seen, perhaps, the most intense tropical activity of any recorded era — just two hurricanes have made a direct hit on the state. That's about one-fourth the number history suggests Texas should see. Activity in the current...
