The blocking high pressure in the Atlantic might just push it too far north... :cry:

TD6 is looking interesting and will probably become TS Danielle quite soon. Could become quite a strong hurricane in the medium term.

Below is the predicted tracks from various models for the next 5ish days plotted on Google Earth. The long range forecast has her stalling around the Bermuda area for a while and then perhaps going extratropical and heading our way. All very uncertain at this time but could produce some swell for the first week in September.

Yes I've been keeping my eye on this over the last 24 hours, could prove very interesting for here in the UK and the East Coast of the US....

Not sure how far up Earl got to by now either. Maybe a combination of both?

I think it's both... The yosurfer animated swell and period [ http://www.yosurfer.com/surf_reports/ ] looks good and the magic (optimistic seaweed) long range forecast shows it coming in on the spring tide. I am stoked - completely rammed the first lot we got down in Cornwall - even blagged a sicky when I'd got off holiday from SA by one day - and now it looks like we're getting hit again!!!!

We must all pray to Poseidon now that this pans out.

And the winner is...

Err. I can't actually remember which ones made their way to us. Danielle rings a bell but think she was quite wittled down.

http://www.noaanews.noaa.gov/stories201 ... eason.html
In the Atlantic Basin a total of 19 named storms formed – tied with 1887 and 1995 for third highest on record. Of those, 12 became hurricanes – tied with 1969 for second highest on record. Five of those reached major hurricane status of Category 3 or higher.

Although I think Earl was probably the longest lived (& most effective in the US) it looks like Igor would have had most effect on us maybe?

Also based on how long it was a hurricane for (the red and purple bits), I'm claiming it with Igor. You all owe me pints.
