MY SPECIAL MESSAGES (THURSDAY OCTOBER 29 2020 5:45 PM EDT)
The following changes have occurred since birdseye view post #164:
Zeta has transitioned into a remnant non-tropical frontal low pressure moving rapidly offshore of the eastern United States and into the western Atlantic. Any weather ongoing over the eastern United States (heavy rain, breezy winds) is associated with a much larger frontal low pressure to the west of Zeta.
A tropical wave of low pressure has potential to develop as upper-level winds become more favorable when it moves across the Caribbean Sea over the next few days. The greatest potential for possible tropical cyclone impacts appears to be toward Central America (Nicaragua and Honduras) instead of the northern Caribbean islands in the coming days, interests here should be paying close attention to this disturbance.
As the author of infohurricanes.com, I have also been monitoring the progress of the worldwide outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, see COVID-19 page in the above site menu for details. For the United States, see included message at the top of the COVID-19 page that explains the severity of the virus and how it could cause a catastrophic amount of fatalities, much more than the common flu, if large amounts of citizens continue to not perform best practices to stop the spread of the virus such as wearing a mask in public. Please spread this message to as many people as possible!
BIRDSEYE VIEW POSTS
Since 2012 on the Weather Underground (www.wunderground.com) blogs, I have been posting annotated "birdseye view" charts of the Atlantic basin, with a detailed explanation and forecasting that references the chart. From there you may know me as "NCHurricane2009." While I now do these "birdseye view" posts here, I will continue to do comments via Disqus on Weather Underground at www.wunderground.com/cat6. You can see my Disqus feed at this link for my latest comments. Feel free to reply to me with your disqus account or e-mail at
