THIS IS A TIME-SENSITIVE POST

FROM SEPTEMBER 22, 2008

Dr. Jeff Masters of http://www.wunderground.com/tropical/ reports flash floods and mudslides in Puerto Rico from the tropical disturbance in their vicinity.  Please check it out.  His weather blog is excellent.  You will find it on the right side of the page.

The models are all over the place today.  The GDFL model has been, in my opinion, the best performer over the last couple of years at least.  Please disregard the CLP5 model and the XTRP model.  They are no-skill models that do have a useful purpose but they are not meant to convey an actual forecast.  One day I may write about those models to explain their function but if you are bugged by it and can’t wait, I suggest a Google search.

Please visit the rest of this web-log at https://cloudman23.wordpress.com/.  If you are interested in weather, there are some tutorial items scattered about and more will be added in time.  At the end of this page there is a cue to click to the previous page or the next page.
