Stuck In The Middle

It's been a strange few days watching thunderstorms in California, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana while the temperatures in Denver have approached summer normals. In fact, we broke a record high here in Denver today at 76ºF. During our "noon o'clock walk", it was very pleasant. Honestly, though ... I'd rather have the thunderstorms. I'm a bit envious! I'm not too excited about this weekend's chances of severe further to the south and east. I was toying with the idea of organizing a trip but unless something spectacular looks to form further to the north and west, I'll be enjoying Twister night with friends from work on Friday and Convergence! on Saturday.

How about a look at tropical activity?

Active Tropical Weather
Indian Ocean

17S Gabrielle - This storm, while thriving longer than I expected is now on the way out.  I'll keep an eye on the remnants for the next few days but it is not expected to strengthen.

South Pacific Ocean

98P Invest is looking very interesting.  It has wrapped up pretty well over the past 24 hours and bares watching.  

Currently at Denver (Hampden Heights), Colorado: 56ºF Clear, winds SW ~10-15kt.

We're certainly a different breed. That's why I like to go with my theory of "weathersexuality".
