Tropical Storm Barry on June 1st to welcome in the 2007 season? We’ll see, but it is a big possibility. [Edit: As events have borne out, it was a big possibility. 100%]
Hurricane Hunters did find flight level winds around 60 miles per hour around 2-3pm EDT today while at 500 feet, so there are some good winds in the area but no organization – which is obvious from the satellite views. Lots of rain and some convection. Likewise the hurricane hunters found a pretty low pressure for a system with such poor organization – around 1000 MB (which is around 29.53 inches of mercury).
The primary impact so far for those of us in Florida is rain in the southern 3/4 of the state which is certainly welcome.
We’ll keep you informed as more information is known.
