Yes you could say theoretically that a hurricane is coming. The answer to the hypothesis would be we don't know when, this year, next year and so on....

Is it coming on August 22, No. There is some rain on the horizon but not a cyclone for the 22nd

Well thank you for your Condescending answer. I wasn't asking if there was one coming on Aug 22nd, I was simply asking if there is anything in the works. Geez some people.

Ignore the nasty comments. They have a right to say them. Sad.

There is no hurricane, nothing snarky about that. Look at the link in post one.

Check the National Hurricane Ctr. site. There are some things happening but not a hurricane.

It has been a non event year to date for us here and next week does not show anything of concern in the least. The systems they are now watching are simple cloud masses with little to no chance of development. Even if they did, their tracks take them well north of us, thus no local effects.

So...simply put...no hurricanes predicted or forecast for the weekahead and looking at the clouds off of Africa right now...nothing of concern later this week.

Cheers

I always look at this web site showing water vapor images of the area when I am going to the DR.

As you can see, lots of clouds around but no organized storms. Just kick back and enjoy your time away from home!
