  1. EarthSat said in a note to clients
    Thursday that it has raised revised its prediction for named storms in 2007 from 16 to 18.

    Any predictions from you all? none of those 7 year old kid responses please.
  2. I only trust NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmotspheric Administration).

    Their last release predicted 7 to 10 hurricanes with the possibility of 3 to 5 becoming major hurricanes.

    It's been quiet so far but the season isn't over either :(

    the real test is august. if its gonna get bad, it'll get bad in august..

    Its been warmer than usual on the gulf coast so keep that in mind.
  4. true, but water temperatures are lower than average in the region
  5. The dust that has come over from the West Coast of Africa has kept ocean temperatures cooler than usual.

    NOAA's mid-season update comes out on August 9th.
  6. Circulation spotted near cuba.
  7. Less than 3 major hurricanes in rest of this year.
  8. Tropical Storm Dean Stronger, May Become Hurricane Thu-NHC
    Tropical Storm Erin Continues Moving Toward Texas Coast-NHC

    Long crack.
  9. Category 1 right now I think.
    Could move to 3 or even 4 over the weekend . . . all depends on whether or not it heads more West into the Yucatan Peninsula, or comes back in a more northeasterly direction towards TEXAS.

    Nat-Gas drillers could be a great play tomorrow heading into the Weekend.

    Stay tuned!
