NOW THAT IS A NAME I CAN RESPECT.

Igor has been christened in the Atlantic to the EAST of the Cape Verde Islands, and this is the kind of long-tracked system that in 10-14 days could very well be threatening the U.S. It's the pattern that leads me to believe that, as in 7-10 days the central Atlantic trough should lift enough to allow it through. We didn't have to wait long for our burst to begin, though one may argue, it has never ended. This is the 6th named storm within 20 days, and gives us 9 by the midpoint.. interesting.. that 18-21 may not be looking to bad.

Yesterday, the associate head wrestling coach here, Cody Sanderson, was giving me grief about wimpy storm names. I told him I had nothing to do with naming storms, but his complaint is violent storms need violent names. Why should one take seriously a storm with a name that you cant pronounce, or is less than tough sounding? Obviously, this was all tongue in cheek, but Igor is a name that conjures up images of a monster, which is what this should be.

Ivan was a great name too, but it was replaced by Igor.

That is not to be confused with Al Gore.

Keep an eye on what is going on east of the southern Windwards. This should develop within five days and is probably a threat before Igor.

I will be posting on the three types of storms we are seeing this year in the hurricane season a little later.

In the meantime, the Long Ranger plays with the MEI, the Big Dog plays with the MJO and the free site scares the daylights out of everyone as I explain why we will all be freezing to death in the winters of 2012-2013 through 2014-2015.

Igor may be the farthest east storm since Donna in 1960.

Ciao for now.
