Weather Update:

The season has been a good one so far for the Gulf Coast vis-à-vis hurricanes, but wetter than normal which points to the “Baby Boy.” Yes, El Niño is back to mess with the weather for the next year. Normal weather is now defined as normal during an El Niño, wet for me, mild winter in the Northeast, and drought in the center of the country.

It also means high than normal wind shear over the Atlantic, so a reduced threat of hurricanes.

Florence had a glancing hit on Bermuda and Gordon is staying in the central Atlantic. Tropical Depression 8, that will become Helene might bother the Atlantic coast, but there isn’t much action in the Gulf. We need the break, and will put up the mold, mildew, and mushrooms.

With only brief bouts of Alberto and Ernesto, we’ve actually had a decent summer. In my book, that means having to mow the grass in August.

It’s enough to make one suspicious of the upcoming winter.

It should be similar to what you had in 1998-99, but definitely different than the last few years. The wind patterns change, and with them the normal storm track for cold fronts.
