When will it stop???

Here it is, December 30th and we've got yet ANOTHER tropical storm out in the Atlantic! This one, TS Zeta, makes #27 for the year. You'd think mother nature was going to give us a break, didn't you?

Now here's a line from the latest (4pm) discussion from the weather service that might be a little more telling:

ALTHOUGH THE ATMOSPHERE SEEMS TO WANT TO DEVELOP TROPICAL STORMS AD
NAUSEAM...THE CALENDAR WILL SHORTLY PUT AN END TO THE USE OF THE
GREEK ALPHABET TO NAME THEM.

Translation: 1 Jan 2006, they can start using the new list.

Any bets we have the first storm of 2006 by March?

Will we be seeing year round "hurricane season"?!

Well, as the NHC said above, the atmosphere does seem to want to keep spinning them up. Normally you'd expect that things would settle down by now (given that Europe's had two major snowstorms now), but...

Then again, look at what's going on along the Left Coast. It's going to be a very odd winter this go around.

March? Are you kidding? I wouldn't be surprised about February at this rate.

Back in the 70's there was a winter low that formed in the Gulf and was a fairly nasty storm. The same was true in 1993 with the major March winter storm that had near hurricane-strength winds in New Orleans, and another storm back in the late 90's that for about 12 hours had an actual eye formation on the radar. The local weather office commented that had it been July instead of January, there probably would have been warnings up.

Do I think it could happen? Yeah. I do.

New list?

And you're just getting our usual storm season. We didn't have one this year.

Be glad. This year hasn't been the best with storms. Ah well, maybe things will calm down.

Not!
