  • Sailing is all about the Weather.

    Big into the exploration of Atlantic Hurricanes since Katrina came uninvited into his world, James (Jim) Gurley (JamesG161) has followed every Tropical Storm birthed in Atlantic, Gulf and Caribbean waters since. Being a boater, he knows that we often need more time to prepare than we get from the TV weather folk. Jim relies on the science of storm development to share early warning info with friends and fellow boaters.

    Early in 2018, Jim and John Shepard, (JSSailem) started to chat about the weather data available. John asked Jim to help forecast Pacific NW storms, and this morphed into discussions on weather forecasting.

    For John, sailing in the PNW is sometimes hit and miss. One day is ugly, then a string of beautiful days but no wind, followed by a series of blue-sky days and 12 knot breezes. Being ready for those great sailing days means you need to look to the Pacific Ocean and what is brewing. John has been into Pacific NW Weather since the 1970’s when his first PNW November storm hit bringing more than 40 days and 40 nights of continual rain.

    Together we want to share information, new APPs, safety, and thoughts about letting the weather help you. Identify some of the resources for sailors and help prepare you for your next sailboat outing.

    It is far better to go out on the water knowing what to expect in weather terms, than to be out on the water and see dark ominous clouds suddenly appear, unprepared.

Hispaniola will again help out the Bahamas and Florida
Always a But...

Lowering the Atmospheric Pressures over Hispaniola does have an impact too.

Earthquakes!! :yikes:

I am not joking about this.
I learned this years ago. Huge reduction in Pressure by Hurricanes relieves the Earth crust to shift.

The largest with the Green pin point was magnitude 4.6, depth 10 km an hour ago.

Small Tsunami alert.

TS Grace seems to like TS Fred.

The fate is TS Grace not be known, until Tuesday 17th, after Hispaniola rips her apart.

TS Grace will move West and not have much chance to be a big storm.

It will affect the area, where I lived for 4 years.

Tampico Mexico and I was there for Hurricane Gilbert. [the 18th Hurricane in my life:oops:]
I mention this since TS Grace has almost the same path, and the 7th storm of the year or "G".

Well we could use some cooler air
TS Fred should help that.:pimp:
