Tropical Storm Tomas: November 7, Update A

Earlier today the NHC stopped their advisories on Tomas. He has lost tropical characteristics and is more like a low pressure front than a tropical storm now. This is what we were seeing a couple of days ago and in that image I attached to my previous entry (I had a hectic day away from a computer yesterday :-)). His last known official winds were about 60mph, so he was a mid-sized tropical storm. Central pressure was 997mb. He is centered somewhere around 26.1N, 68.1W.
He is about 500 miles SSW of Bermuda and heading NNE at 3mph. Er, Bermuda I think you're good for the rest of this year. (Talk about a long range forecast! ;-)). Nah... he'll pass well to your east and zip by you a bit sooner than that. It looks like wind shear is pretty strong so he should steadily decline and may just about be able to send you a wave (hee hee...puns intended) as he goes by.  
This is my last entry on Tomas.
No more until the next one... or dare I say it, until the end of the season!! Three more weeks to go! Woo hoo.
Later gators! (Shhh, I hear it's best not to mention the noles this week.) (Can one say 'good try'?)

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.
