Where Are All of the Hurricanes This Year?

    Where are all of the hurricanes this year? Well, that question is a good one. All of the recent storms have went out into the Atlantic Ocean and stayed out there.
    Right now there is not much going on in the tropics. There is one Hurricane, Igor, which is moving west at about 15 miles per hour or 17 knots. The winds near the center are about 75 mph. They only need to be 74 mph to be called a hurricane. It looks like it will head out into the Atlantic. Right now it is too hard to tell if it will hit the east coast or just go off into the atlantic like Fiona did (Fiona is a storm that went out into the atlantic with no land fall).
     Now there are actually three more disturbances in the atlantic. One right off the coast of Africa has a ninety percent chance of turning into a tropical cyclone in 48 hours while it moves west. Another is off the coast of South America and is also moving west and has a 60% chance of turning into a tropical cyclone in the next 48 hours. The last is out in the center of the Atlantic ocean and only has a 10 % chance of Becoming a tropical cyclone in the next 48 hours while it drifts northeast. That's is about it for the tropics tonight.
     Now on to the local weather:                                                                                                City              Current Temp.   Pricip. tonite     tom.       High tom.       Low tom.

Natchitoches   80 degrees      30%                30%      94 degrees        65 degrees
        Have a great night/morning. Depending on when you read it. Have a good Day/Night.

    Hello again, people of wherever you can get internet and look at this post.
       Today we have some major changes in the storms.
       Hurricane Earl is moving northwest at 15 knots or 17 mph. Earl has winds near the center of about 135 mph. That means it is still a catagory 4. It now looks like it will skim the east coast around North Carolina. There has been a hurricane warning issued for the coast of North Carolina. It will at least be a catagory 3, if not greater when it gets to N.C. It will at leastmake waves along the east coast and bring heavy rain and very strong winds over portions of the east coast.
       Tropical Storm Fiona is moving northwest at 17 knots or 20 mph. It has winds near the center at about 50 knots or 60 mph. It is not expected to make any landfall "RIGHT NOW", but keep an eye out for it.
       For those of you who haven't heard There is a new Tropical Storm. Gaston  moving west at 13 knots or 15 mph. Winds near the center of 40 mph. It is moving west right now, but by the looks of the projected path it looks like it "MAY" be heading for the Gulf of Mexico.
Tropical Storm Gaston
Here you can have a look of what its projected path looks like. Comment and tell me what  you think about this storm. Will it go into the Gulf, or will it take the path that the previous ones have taken.
