Tropical Storm Earl, Gaston the remanent low, and Gulf of Mexico blob: September 5, Update A

Shortest update yet!
Tropical Storm Earl:
He's not really a tropical storm anymore. This is my last entry on Earl.
Gaston, the remanent low:
He's still got circulation but convection is still struggling. The center is at 17N, 50.5W, heading WNW. Once he gets out of the dry air then he'll make a move - it looks like convection is picking up. I'd call him a Tropical Depression at this point.
Gulf of Mexico Blobette:
This has convection and now has some vorticity, so it could develop into a storm before making landfall. It's moving NW at 5-10 mph. It's quite disorganized though, so it is difficult to find a center point. Next name is Hermine (pronounced her-MEEN).
That's it for today. :-)

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.
