Nothing really changed since yesterday – Nigel still heading towards the British Isles, with maybe a turn towards Iceland as an extratropical storm, but no landfalls forecast at this point. Sun isn’t up over most of the Atlantic, but here’s a composite image for filler …
Another probably “fish storm” brewing off the coast of Africa, NHC has a 70% chance of becoming at least a depression. No threat to land at the moment, or probably ever.
For coastal Georgia and South Carolina, a complex low pressure complex seems to be forming just offshore. NHC has a yellow blob-of-doom at 30% chance of “subtropical” formation. It may bring some gusty winds and heavy rain, but on the Enki threat scale (Meh/Inconvenient/Hazardous/Dangerous) it looks to be at most inconvenient at this point, just a messy Thursday and Friday.
Also in the GA/SC area, much has been made of the fact an F-35 “stealth” fighter crashed after the pilot ejected for some reason (the pilot is in the hospital but apparently ok). The aircraft apparently kept flying for a bit, and was lost for a while (the crash site was not found until last night). Quote of the day (keeping in mind the high price, troubled history, and dubious operational capabilities of the F-35): “The real surprise here is that the trillion dollar moneyhole managed to fly far enough to go missing.”
Can’t add much to that!
