Atlantic Blob: August 1, Update A

There's a blob that's been trying to get a handle on reality for the past couple of days. Sounds a bit like me! ;-)
Although it has had some convection, there wasn't much circulation until the last few hours. But things are changing slowly and it is now beginning to pick up some spin (vorticity), mostly in the lower-to-middle troposphere. It's not yet a Tropical Depression (not officially anyway), let alone a storm, but certainly worth watching. It's somewhere around 9N, 38W, moving in a westward direction.
It's past my bedtime and it's a work day tomorrow and this is just a blob at the moment, so that's it for now. (Why can't we have three day weekends... i just about get the hang of them by sunday evening! ;-) ).
More tomorrow...

These remarks are just what I think/see regarding tropical storms - not the opinion of any organization I represent. If you are making an evacuation decision, please heed your local emergency management and the National Hurricane Center's official forecast and the National Weather Service announcements. This is not an official forecast. If I was there and was going to "run away, run away" (Monty Python), I'll let you know.
