Tropical Depression 15-E

Posted by deanna on October 4, 2008, 9:58 am

We now have a tropical depression heading up the
coast toward us which NHC is predicting will strengthen first into a tropical storm, then a hurricane, by the middle of next week. The track currently shows it staying offshore of Mexico. Go to the Weather Underground site and click on the Historical graphic to see that storms during the last part of the hurricane season come much closer to the coast than earlier in the season. This one should be watched pretty closely.

Here are the September statistics:

Avg. high temp: 87.7F/31C
Avg. low temp: 79.8F/26.5C

Avg. high humidity: 78.6%
Avg. low humidity: 70.8%

Total rainfall: 13.38 inches
Yearly total: 38.41 "

It's been a very hot and humid two months - so
for all of you returning residents, be prepared! If this new storm comes close enough to dump a little more rain it should at least cool things off. We've had almost no rain for the past week which is why it's so hot - that and the slowly encroaching jungle of course! The temperature when we've gone to bed each night has been in the high 80's which seems warmer than usual to me.
