Groundhog Day: As Close As You Can Get To A "Weather" Holiday
Well, ol' Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow today which according to weather lore means we will be seeing six more weeks of winter. Is it storm season yet? Speaking of storms, there were a couple of nice supercells that rolled through the Florida Keys today. That was neat. Also, notice that I have put up a link to the National Storm Chasers Convention on the right-hand margin. Check it out!
Active tropical weather:
13S (unnamed) - As I suspected yesterday, this area has been upgraded to a tropical cyclone. If named, it should be "Gael" and I expect this to happen in the next advisory.
Currently at Denver (Hampden Heights), Colorado: 44ºF Partly cloudy (high clouds), winds NW, ~5kts.
