Tropical Storm Cristobal

Last Updated 8/25/2014, 11:00:00 AM (Eastern Daylight Time)

Dr. Masters' take:

Tropical Storm Cristobal continues to dump heavy rains over the Central and Southeast Bahamas and Turks and Caicos Islands as the storm heads slowly north-northeastwards out to sea. Satellite loops show that Cristobal is struggling with wind shear, with a center of circulation that is completely exposed to view, and all the heavy thunderstorms pushed to the south and east sides of the center. The shear is expected to relax by Wednesday as a trough of low pressure captures the storm and accelerates it to the northeast, out to sea. Cristobal will likely be intensifying into a Category 1 hurricane as it brushes Bermuda on Wednesday, and the 11 am EDT Monday Wind Probability Forecast from NHC gave that island a 41% chance of experiencing tropical storm force winds of 39+ mph.

Thinkgeek Canned Unicorn Meat "a dismembered stuffed unicorn in a can"


Q: After long term consumption of this, will I poop rainbows?
Yes! Small, edible pieces of bite size rainbow in fact! Please be warned however that a steady stream of urine (rainbow) after consuming this product cannot be cross with another of the same. The result will be dark matter.

The reviews for the Uranium ore have had me smiling for hours.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, anyone else see it ? (no spoilers, no worries)

I saw it last night with my son. It was entertaining but yes, very violent.

Steve Gregory sees no threat to the mainland US from TS Cristobal.

ELSEWHERE in the Tropical Atlantic - a fairly strong disturbance off the West African coast is westbound - but is unlikely to develop for at least the next 5 or more days as the system is embedded within the dry and warm Saharan Air Layer (SAL).

I had a lovely birthday yesterday with my son ! We went out for a nice dinner, and then saw Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. The movie is pretty violent, so definitely not for all.

Invest 96L continues moving WNW

Wind 40 MPH

Steve Gregory for Dr. Masters:

The intensity forecasts are equally difficult, although they have continued to be quite consistent with each other and between succeeding model runs. The odds are relatively high (70%-80%) the system will become a tropical storm either late today or on Sunday, with a fairly slow rate of intensification to near CAT 1 intensity on Monday or Tuesday. This continues to be a reasonably good forecast scenario all things considered, and a CAT 1 intensity threat for the east coast of Florida northward to the Carolinas is quite real albeit a still very uncertain one.

Ignoring the Pacific for today, since it's my birthday !

No worries, nothing dangerous to land in the Pacific ! Have a great day, all WW subscribers !

Grumpy Cat in Vancouver to film Christmas movie


One of the internet's biggest stars is in Vancouver this week filming her first movie for the Lifetime channel and she doesn't look very pleased about it!

Grumpy Cat, the pussy with the grumpy disposition and signature frown is on the set of Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever.

The feline superstar, whose real name is Tardar Sauce, was born with dwarfism, an underbite and dark patches under her eyes, all of which give her a trademark surly look.

That look has garnered her over 200,000 followers on Twitter and millions of 'Likes' on Facebook.

Flathead Lake, Montana is one of the cleanest in the populated world for its size and type


Flathead Lake (Salish: člq̓etkʷ ) is the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi River in the contiguous United States, taking Red Lake (Minnesota) and Lake of the Woods to be north of the Mississippi River, rather than west of the river. With a surface area of between 191.5 sq mi (496 km2) and 197 sq mi (510 km2), Flathead Lake is slightly larger than Lake Tahoe. The lake is a remnant of the ancient, massive glacial dammed lake, Lake Missoula of the era of the last interglacial. Flathead Lake is 27.3 mi (43.9 km) long and up to 15.5 mi (24.9 km) wide. Flathead lake has a maximum depth of 370.7 ft (113.0 m), and an average of 164.7 ft (50.2 m). This makes Flathead lake deeper than the average depths of the Yellow Sea or the Persian Gulf. Polson Bay, at the lake's outlet was raised 10 ft (3.0 m) by Kerr Dam. It is one of the cleanest in the populated world for its size and type.
