Process of recovery begins as we enjoy quiet period in the tropics…for now

For thousands of people in North and South Carolina, the slow road to recovery from hurricane Florence has begun or will begin soon. The flooding continues, of course, and will take several days to abate but for now, the rain has quit, the sun is out and people can begin to rebuild what Florence took away.

Fortunately, the tropics will be in a lull state for a little while as the pattern re-sets itself for a potentially busy October. Water temps are still plenty warm and in many areas of the Atlantic Basin, those sea surface temperatures are running above the long term average.

I am back home in Wilmington, NC where my house has power but no Internet via cable modem. So, I am using my mobile hotspot, a great device to have – especially when critical work needs to get done.

Here is my latest video discussion posted just a short time ago. I will have more here, including a look back at how well this pattern that produced Florence was predicted ahead of time in my blog update tomorrow.
