Tropical Update

As predicted, Danny has weakened to a tropical storm.  He still bears watching because these things are known to pick up steam as they travel across warm water.  We'll keep a weather eye on him until he ceases to become a threat.

I see that another tropical wave has come out of the desert in Africa.  The one we talked about earlier has changed color on the map, from yellow to amber.  That means there is a 50% chance of cyclone activity in the next 48 hours.  Both of those yellow Xs bear watching because they're on the line of storms that become hurricanes.  It's that time of year in the tropics and we'd best pay attention.
