Tropical Depression # 8

Postby futuremarlinsgm » Wed Sep 13, 2006 1:05 pm

Hey fellow weather watchers. I'm new here so it will take me awhile to get used to the site. I'm a 17-year old student at Cooper City High School in Broward County, FL and I'm aspiring to become a professional meteorologist in the future. Well anyways, to my topic.

Looking at T.D. 8 and the environment around the storm, I don't actually trust the forecast track nor intensity. I have this gut-instinct that makes me believe that the storm will not make a dramatic turn towards the north and will take a track towards the U.S. East Coast. I believe that T.D. 8 will strengthen faster than anticipated due to the plentiful deep, warm waters in the Atlantic Ocean.

Hope to hear from you and hope I can become an active member of the message borad and weather community.

Hey, welcome to the board!

Those were some good insights on the intensity forecasting - intensity forecasts are way behind track forecasts and track forecasts, while better than nothing, certainly have room for improvement.

I also went to school in Broward county, although not at Cooper City. Still in Florida, but NE Florida now, after a stint in the Keys (awesome there) and elsewhere for college and grad school.
