Watch the Gulf.

We have competing viewpoints in the meteorological world. The map below is the five-day forecast from the National Hurricane Center and as we can see, there is nothing in the entire Atlantic hemisphere that has caught their attention.   But, forecasters at Accuweather are predicting that a system could develop in the northern Gulf of […]

Delores Continues to Spin Off Baja.

Hurricane Delores continues to spin and move north/northwest up the West Coast. It is expected to be pushed a little bit further to the east as it moves north, but is still not projected to make landfall at this time (at least over the next 5 days). The storm today is boasting sustained winds of […]

Claudette was a Non-Story. $

Tropical storm Claudette formed off the US East Coast and moved right up the coast without a lot of fanfare. The storm remained far enough off shore that it won’t impact the US mainland as it moves northward. Winds are just 40 mph at present which barely allows it to maintain its tropical storm status. […]

Atlantic Still Clear.

There is still nothing brewing in the Atlantic worth mentioning at this time. The view over the next 5 days remains clear as the National Hurricane Center is showing at right. There are two small systems in the Pacific. One is expected to become a hurricane and will move from the Eastern Pacific toward Hawaii. […]

Atlantic Clear, Focus Shifts to Wildfire Threat.

The Wenatchee Wildfire in Washington State continues to gobble up land with more than 3,000 acres already consumed and less than 10% of it contained as of this morning. Dozens of homes have already been burnt and dozens more are at risk in this fairly rural area in Washington. Forecasters are now saying that the […]

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 […]
