    The tropical map is getting more interesting. The Euro model is showing something may spin up in the Gulf.

    Chances of formation are now 60%.

    kind of funny to see the word cyclone used, because growing up is what my parents and family knew them as. Only when we came to this country the word hurricane was heard. Jim, thanks for the update and heads up on all the weather activities out here. It sure sucks this time of year here in FL Never look forward to these 3 months (Aug,Sept, & Oct).

    What is the difference between a hurricane, a cyclone, and a typhoon?
    The only difference between a hurricane, a cyclone, and a typhoon is the location where the storm occurs.


    Hurricanes, cyclones, and typhoons are all the same weather phenomenon; we just use different names for these storms in different places. In the Atlantic and Northeast Pacific, the term “hurricane” is used. The same type of disturbance in the Northwest Pacific is called a “typhoon” and “cyclones” occur in the South Pacific and Indian Ocean.

    For sure. Scary is the word.

    I do not like to travel overseas in August or September based on the risk.

    Now an 80% chance of development with the Euro model suggesting it is going to happen on the eastern side of the cone and travel northerly near the east coast of Fla. If this trend continues, heads up for the Atlantic coast.

    The Euro models have it becoming a strong tropical event starting off the Fla east coast while the American model predicts a much weaker event headed to the Gulf. Chances for development overall remain 80%.

    The Euro model group won out as usual as the likely solution. The current prediction is that the cyclone will not get too intense before striking Fla.

    Perhaps the big cookie crossing the Atlantic will be the one to watch. It will arrive maybe in 2 weeks.
