Hurricane Season ?

Well folks, it may be that time of year again. I live here. Every summer/fall, we watch the tropics very closely while on the edge of our seats. Its hurricane season. Each year we get tropical storms and fear worse.

According to Storm Track .com:

A strong low pressure system has formed off the East Coast of the United States (Figure 1). This system has developed central thunderstorm activity while remaining over the warmish waters of the Gulf Stream. Sea surface temperatures underneath the area of activity are below the usual threshold of 26C, however, upper level temperatures are cold enough that the storm could develop some tropical characteristics.
