A tidbit from the tropics by weather enthusiast Levi Cowan. Levi has been tracking tropical systems closely since 2002, and is currently working on his bachelor's degree in physics at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
Please note that these tidbits do NOT reflect the official forecasts of the National Hurricane Center, and should not be taken as such. While tropical cyclones exist in the Atlantic, official NHC information will be posted on my website. Please refer to those when making decisions, and heed the advisories and evacuation statements of your local National Weather Service Office.
