Hurricane Season

Hurricane season is upon us, and as I finish cleaning guns this morning, I click over and see that the National Weather Service is tracking two tropical waves.

They don't give the disturbances much chance for propagation, but they bear watching as a hazard to navigation.
The first wave -- located about 1200 miles east of the Lesser Antilles – is moving westward quickly at 25 mph and is poorly organized, meaning development will be slow if it occurs, according to the NHC.
The second wave is just off the coast of Africa and, according to the NHC, is becoming better organized but will encounter “a less favorable environment over the central tropical Atlantic next week.”
It's that time of year again, and PawPaw will be keeping a weather eye on the disturbances in the Gulf.
