Atlantic Quiet for the Moment.

After Tropical Storm Bill created a little more inland havoc than most of us had expected, the Atlantic is relatively clear. At the moment, forecasters are not watching any regions for tropical depression or storm formation over the weekend.      As we mentioned earlier this week, we have to keep the southern Gulf Region […]

After Bill, Atlantic and Pacific Clear. $

Tropical Storm Bill has made its way on land as most news sources were reporting tonight. Positively, there won’t be another system right behind this one, both the Atlantic and Pacific Theaters are clear of potential storm activity for at least the next 48 hours (long range sensors are clear).

Another Storm to Chase Blanca. $

Just as we begin to see the impacts of Hurricane Blanca on the US Southwest, we are seeing the formation of another storm in the Eastern Pacific. There is currently a 60% chance that this will become a tropical depression over the next 48 hours as it becomes more organized.

Blanca to Bring Rains to US West.

Accuweather has given us a great map of where Hurricane Blanca is expected to contribute the most moisture. Unfortunately for the bulk of California, there won’t be a significant break from the drought as a result of Blanca moving over the region. In fact, some forecasters are warning that the storm could just increase the […]

El Nino Could be Welcome for the West.


Accuweather ran an interesting map today regarding the typical fall weather patterns created during an El Nino cycle. Although this is turning out to be a fairly weak El Nino (thus far), it is bringing some hope to California that this fall and winter will bring with it much needed precipitation to help it break […]

Keep an Eye on Blanca. $


Tropical storm Blanca has formed in the Eastern Pacific and is now taking a track that could threaten the Mexican West Coast over the next five days. Blanca is expected to form into a hurricane as it gains momentum and accelerates throughout the week.

A Quick Note for Those of us Getting a lot of Rain.

This isn’t scientific at all, but in our experience in year’s in which we get a tremendous amount of rain, something interesting happens to grass and other outdoor plants. When there is ample water, plants root systems tend to remain shallow, there’s no reason for them to drive deeper into the soil to find moisture. […]

No Tropical Weather Pattern Concerns at this Stage.

We will begin to cover the Atlantic Hurricane season starting next week in more detail. But, for now, both the Pacific and Atlantic basins are clear enough that we won’t experience any impacts on the NAFTA corridor. The map at right is the latest from the National Hurricane Center. We anticipate that the yellow storm […]

Just in Case You Were Wondering about the Drought? $

We have done so much covering of the national drought situation that I’m sure many of you are wondering what the recent rains have done for the national drought map.  It did what you thought it would. The drought in most of Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas has just about disappeared. By next week’s drought report, […]

More Pacific Tropical Weather Activity.

These are still tropical systems waiting to become hurricanes. But, there are two areas off the coast of Mexico – one of which looks a bit more interesting in the way of tropical development. The second system in the graphic at right from the National Hurricane Center shows an area that has greater than a […]
