@panzade,
I feel bad for the remnants of Skynrd group. 30 yrs later, even up in the frigid north I would hear that cry..."Play Freebird, man!" It wasn't even a Skynyrd concert, either.

however, I digress...

Although the strength of Chantal has decreased and some predictions estimate it will decrease back down to a Tropical Wave, it is important to continue to monitor the storm and take all necessary safety precautions.

@panzade,
Chantal is no longer a tropical storm as of 5 pm Wednesday. But it does bear watching as it clears Cuba overnight.

Chantal came through here this afternoon with some heavy showers....and just as quickly disappeared. Along with the gig we were slated to play.

DORIAN is up next in the Atlantic. If it tracks north of Haiti and Cuba it might pose a danger to the Florida Keys next week.

@JPB,
Oh yeah! That's just what we need - some more tropical rain. I think in the last 3 weeks we got 3 months extra. Send it over to Houston. I think they want some more.

Not to be left out, the Pacific Ocean and Hawaii are seeing some action:

http://www.weather.com/news/weather-hurricanes/tropical-pacific-depression-storm-six-hurricane-flossie-20130724

Tropical Storm Flossie, the sixth named storm of the eastern Pacific hurricane season, formed just over 1000 miles west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California Wednesday.

Flossie will continue tracking west-northwest over the open waters of the Pacific Ocean, before turning toward the west later this weekend.

The forecast path includes parts of the Hawaiian Islands early next week (Monday/Tuesday). However, drier air, increased wind shear, and somewhat cooler water is expected to begin weakening of Flossie beginning this weekend.

The bottom line is that Flossie is expected to be only a weak tropical storm, tropical depression, or remnant by the time it reaches the Hawaiian Islands Monday and Tuesday. This means perhaps an increase in showers, including typical leeward locations, higher swells reaching east-facing shores, and an attendant threat of rip currents. Interests in the Hawaiian Islands should monitor Flossie through the weekend.

@Butrflynet,
Thanks for keeping a watch on the "left" coast.

Flossie's brother is now getting into the act. This should send some more rain our way in Albuquerque.

MIAMI — Forecasters say Hurricane Gil has formed in the Pacific, far off the southern tip of California.
The National Hurricane Center in Miami says maximum sustained winds Wednesday afternoon are 75 mph (120 kph). The center is about 935 miles (1,502 kilometers) southwest of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula, south of California.
There are no coastal warnings or watches.
It’s moving at 12 mph (19 kph) and is expected to strengthen as it heads farther out to sea.

The system currently in the Gulf does not figure to gain a name. It looks to me like it will mostly go south of Houston, but the weather guy maintains we may get rain. He put a 50% to Monday and the day that follows it.

My grass is knee high to a whale. But it's too damn hot out there.

The 10 a.m. forecast track for Tropical Storm Karen has it making landfall early Sunday morning in Alabama. A hurricane watch is in effect from Louisiana to Florida. A weekend cool front should keep it well east of Texas.
