Tropical Update

LorenzoPosition: 20.4 N 95.9 W. [4PM CDT][Update TD 13 becomes Tropical Storm Lorenzo]
Movement: West [270°] near 5 mph.
Maximum sustained winds: 70 mph.
Wind Gusts: 85 mph.
Tropical Storm Wind Radius: 70 miles.
Minimum central pressure: 999 mb.

Currently 105 miles East-Southeast of Tuxpan in the Gulf of Mexico, Lorenzo has had a burst of intensification in the last few hours.

TS Karen may have made it up to hurricane status for a few hours last night, but is currently being mugged by wind shear, so no real threat.

Invest 97L quit trying.

Invest 98L crossed Florida last night, but still hasn’t gotten its act together.

Wind shear is the savior of the US this season, so far.

Now Lorenzo is here, and Reuters kindly reassures us in its lede that when it hits Mexico, it won’t affect oil production. Let’s get down to the really important business right away, eh? Who cares about the people; what about the oil?

Actually, the leftist rebels will shut oil production down by blowing up pipelines, so tropical storms are irrelevant.
