Here’s the official list of Tropical Storm and Hurricane names for the Atlantic Ocean. Strongest and most numerous storms are later August through early October, although the season officially runs from today through late November. Luckily none of them look too hard to pronounce, like those Icelandic Volcanoes!
Warm Weather Update: Instead of seeing the models back off (the nightmare forecast scenario mentioned 2 days ago), they are in total agreement on the details through late Sunday. In fact the upper low moving towards California is a bit farther offshore Friday, which means easterly (offshore) flow commences right away on Friday. We could see our warmest day of the year so far on Friday (75 would do it). So the big story is that our first summery weekend is on track! As a result I purchased my tomatoes and intend to plant them tomorrow while it’s still cool. Warm weather veggies are going in the ground as well since I can cover them with plastic when it’s much cooler next week.
