Atlantic disturbance combines two waves

The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a large area of disturbed weather in the central Atlantic, giving it a 30 percent chance of developing over the next two days.

At 8 a.m. on Thursday, the disturbance was about 800 miles east of the Windward Islands, moving northwest at about 15 mph.

Senior hurricane specialist Richard Pasch said the area is the conglomeration of two tropical waves. Though currently disorganized, the disturbance could move into a more favorable environment, he said.

Too early to say where it might go, as the models don’t have a grasp on it yet.

On Wednesday evening, in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Nicole, the sky was filled with an eerie, yet mellow orange light.

At least, that was the case in west Broward County, where I live and work. It was the result of all the moisture in the atmosphere combined with the late day sun above.

Did you notice it too?
