Sometimes the National Hurricane Center forecasters get punchy in the wee hours of the morning:
NANA HASN’T BEEN PRODUCING ENOUGH CONVECTION TO QUALIFY FOR TROPICAL CYCLONE STATUS FOR MANY HOURS…SO IT’S TIME TO SING NA NA HEY HEY KISS HER GOODBYE.
TD #15 is a huge rainmaker, destined to move NE as a tropical storm, deluge the Virgin and Leeward Islands, then head out into the North Atlantic. [99L] could be even more troublesome. I see marked similarities to the formative stages of deadly Mitch in 1998. It seems likely that I will be making hurricane updates for some time.
