Tropical Storms Ana and Bill; Hurricane Season 2009 Begins to Roll

It appears that this years hurricane season will start in the Cape Verde named mid-late summer part of the season.

Two storms rolling off there have become tropical storms; Bill expected to be more potent overall, possibly a Cat 2 by later in the week.  Another low about to come off the African Coast, which may create that conveyor belt like effect across the Atlantic Basin.  Sometimes the belt turns off as quickly as it turns on, as threshold conditions vary for tropical cyclone development.

The Weather Channel will be an excellent source for “live” presentation of these events.  They will likely cover them big time.

Better to watch them on TV than have them hit your area, although I think much of central/south Texas would not mind a bit of decent tropical rains.  It is yet to be known where or when these will impact land.
