Tropical Storm Alberto: May 21, Update A

Three cups of tea and two coffees later (<gasp> coffee!! <gasp>) and I’m now wide-awake and ready for the season. J I shouldn’t have bothered really because Alberto looks like he’s falling apart as I write. His center is now around 30.7N, 77.3W, central pressure of 1006mb, winds of 40mph.  He is moving ENE at 8 mph. Although there is still good circulation in the lower half of the troposphere, as expected the wind shear and dry air took their toll so there are very few clouds and they are mostly to the northeast of the center. I agree with the NHC’s forecast track which will take him on a northeastward path and keep him away from land. They have him dissipating in a couple of days but I think he is already just a Tropical Depression. Unless he does something silly (unlikely), this is my last entry on Alberto. May they all be like this! J  

Hmm… maybe there’s time for a short nap before June 1… anyone got anything really boring to read? Maybe ‘The Authorized Autobiography of a Snail’ or the ‘Dummies Guide to Watching Grass Grow’? No? Right… a glass of wine it is then. ;-)

I’ll be back for the ‘official’ start with a proper welcome message and hopefully NOT before!!

Toodle Pip,
