Alberto is still fandangoing steadily westward across the Atlantic at
about
15 miles an hour, with top windspeeds of a nonscary 90 mph,
hurricane-force
winds extending out only 25 miles from the center. Pressure keeps
dropping
slowly but steadily, though, now around 979 millibars or 28.91 inches of
mercury. The National Hurricane Center doesn't expect any of the numbers
to
change any time soon, and sees a west-to-west-northwest track being
followed
a while.

Do your own math for other measurement scales. Anybody have the
conversion
factor for wombats per weekend?

The homegrown muddle persists, with mild north winds over Ambergris
Caye,
occasional rains, sometimes a little thunder, the wind direction
betokening
something's up. But the satellite picture, even eyed on sequential loop,
makes it hard to get tickled right now. Ghost hints of feeder bands, but
the
mess is still dispersed and they don't make up a discernible pattern.
Probably too weak, in too much variously directed wind, and too close to
landmasses to leap into organization south of the Yucatan Chute. If the
ill-defined, actually imperceptible and merely theoretical low pressure
center gets into the Gulf, maybe then.
http://www.weather.com/weather/sat/tropsat_720x486.html for Alberto,
http://intellicast.com/Tropical/World/UnitedStates/Caribbean/ to wait
'til it loads and watch the Western Caribbean wiggle.

It being close to noontime for many of us, enjoy the sites and halve a
nice day.
