On vacation in Arizona
High of 108*
Tropical Storm Ernesto has formed in the Atlantic Ocean. It is presently east of the BVI's at about 13*north. It's current track should take it into the eastern Caribbean by the weekend and possibly into the Gulf of Mexico in a week or so. It's winds are sustained around 50 MPH and I have the latest spagehetti plots posted here. We are in Arizona on vacation but will return before the storm has a chance to arrive ahead of us.
Ernesto doesn't seem to be a huge storm but there is a new tropical wave of low pressure that is a few hundred miles behind him. If development of this system occurs it will be named Florence. This one seems to have the computer models more concerned.
I will post significant updates as they occur.
