Hurricane Stan took a turn for the west and made a landfall in Central America. The digging trough situated on the new eclipse jet curve did not attract the storm into the central Gulf. On the other hand a new wave from Africa is now in the Caribbean moving westward towards Florida. This wave and its accompanying circulation is poised to shift into stronger cyclonic flow within the next 36 hrs. It is already sending moisture across Florida as the general circulation there is from enhanced easterlies around the southern edge of a large high-pressure area off of the coast. This system bears watching since it is in a position very similar to hurricane Katrina. As the accompanying analysis shows there is also a low pressure area in the extreme northeastern Gulf of Mexico that has circulation into the central Gulf. Both of these centers are in position to interact with the surface trough that is still aligned with the 45° jet curve from the new eclipse point at approximately 86° W longitude. The following official report is found in full on the hurricane site
mentioned in the last hotspots segment. This eclipse influence is not over yet.
A 1006 MB LOW PRESSURE CENTER ACCOMPANIES A SURFACE TROUGH OVER THE BAHAMAS. THE SURFACE LOW CENTER IS NEAR 23.5N 78W ABOUT 20 NM SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF THE SOUTHERN PART OF ANDROS ISLAND.
MULTILAYERED MOISTURE AND SOME SHOWERS/THUNDERSTORMS ARE OVER ATLANTIC OCEAN WATERS FROM EAST OF NORTHERN FLORIDA. MULTILAYERED MOISTURE AND SOME SHOWERS/THUNDERSTORMS ARE OVER ATLANTIC OCEAN WATERS FROM EAST OF NORTHERN FLORIDA...BEING CARRIED ACROSS FLORIDA INTO THE EXTREME NORTHEASTERN GULF WATERS. CYCLONIC FLOW AROUND (another) NORTHEASTERN GULF LOW CENTER CONTINUES INTO THE CENTRAL GULF WATERS.
