Our first Tropical Depression formed last night in my back yard.
The weather advisory includes

ISOLATED TORNADOES AND WATERSPOUTS WILL BE POSSIBLE WITHIN
PASSING RAINBANDS.
Shocked
The rain just started and I'm sitting and looking out the window hoping this will be a quiet year for hurricanes.

I read an article not long ago where they were considering giving Hurricanes Male names, as people weren't taking female ones as seriously as they should.
A female name is more comforting, apparently.

Let's see now.... Hurricane Boris? Thor? Cassius? Nialls?

Scrap that last one.

@Lordyaswas,
Quote:

Native Americans called these storms Hurakons, after "a great spirit who commanded the east wind." Spanish explorers adopted the word and then began giving hurricanes the names of patron saints on whose feast days the storms occurred. Later, hurricanes were identified by their longitude and latitude.
A weatherman in Australia is credited with being the first person to name a tropical storm after a female. By World War II, meteorologists in the U.S. military named storms after their girlfriends and wives. The first storm in the Atlantic Ocean named for a man was Hurricane Bob!
Hurricanes names are selected by the World Meteorological Organization. Every six years, the list of names begins again! However, the names of especially destructive hurricanes are usually retired.

Hurricane Bob, the first male hurricane. August 1991

I bet "Gonzo" Gonzalo will be interesting.

Don't Put On Your STUPID Hats
My first thoughts about Arthur were that he was like a skunk at a picnic...making news only because his arrival at the Outer Banks of NC coincided with the July 4th weekend.
It now looks like he could be more than a nuisance. The storm could be a Cat 2 packing winds up to 95 mph with storm surge possibilities.
There have been evacuations from Cape Hatteras.
The line at the top is reportedly from the NC Gov.

Tropical Storm Bertha heading for Puerto Rico probably will become a hurricane by Tuesday or Wednesday.

The deluge is here, maybe a bit of flooding to boot.

@panzade,
Here in southwest FL coastal it's overcast mostly with lots of breaks after a small rainfall...and a double-rainbow - good omen.

TROUBLE IN THE GULF? The data we're seeing is VERY preliminary, but we're watching the forecast closely. Some computer models want to develop a tropical system in the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico next week. Right now the area of concern is an unorganized cluster of thunderstorms way out in the Atlantic. As it drifts west, if it encounters a favorable environment for development, it could blossom into a tropical storm or hurricane.

@panzade,
The NHC has designated the disturbance as "four." It is turning towards the east coast. Probably nothing to worry about...but bears watching.
