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.

Yeah I was watching those storms rolled across Florida yesterday. I got to see two turn tornadic but no warnings were issued since both storms were in open water. Still a nice set of storms.

I hope those groundhogs were wrong yesterday!!!

No tornado warnings because it was over water! There was a spout! ... check out my latest entry for a nice radar image.
