    Forecasters Monitor Tropical Disturbance Off Florida’s Southeast Coast The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is tracking an area of disturbance off the east coast of Florida and Georgia that could develop into a tropical system within the next 48 hours.

Nearby buoy observations also indicate that surface pressures have been falling close to the center of this system. However, the associated shower...

The Atlantic hurricane season began on June 1 and extends into late November. On Monday, NHC’s focus is on “Disturbance 1,” located about 90 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. The disturbance has a 70% Chance of Cyclone Formation in 48 Hours. NHC said the disturbance “is acquiring more tropical characteristics.” However, the system could move northeastward away from the US to colder waters south of Nova Scotia on...

    Surprisingly, the virus affects only the countries that may have a capacity to control China’s hegemonist ambitions and not those securing aid and assistance from it. It is widely suspected that the COVID-19 virus was manufactured in a laboratory in China and was let loose on the world. It is China which is thus claimed to be largely responsible for the loss of more than 3.3 million lives and causing untold suffering to a far greater number of people. If we look at the list of death by countries, we will see that over half a million died in USA,...

    Since President Trump is being slammed in the mainstream media tonight for "doctoring" a cone-of-uncertainty National Hurricane Center map regarding Hurricane Dorian -- even though he's redeemed himself by actually posting on his social media an official data map of the 'spaghetti straps' starting in Puerto Rico to the US East Coast on 8/28/19 by SFWMD.GOV (South Florida Water Management District), does anyone have an actual NWS data map or NOAA map detailing the same spaghetti straps? I want to send it to my peeps at WMAL. I also want to have as many maps with spaghetti straps indicating the...

  • Woman Asks for Female Nurse During Sensitive Exam, Gets Social Justice Instead

    Can a society “progress” too far? For one UK woman, the answer is a resounding, “Yes.” She learned the hard way that when a society champions itself as “progressive,” there are serious consequences. And those consequences can backfire at any given moment. One woman went in for a very private and personal cervical smear test and specifically asked for a female NHS nurse to administer the exam. What she got, however, was something else entirely. She explained that the nurse “had an obviously male appearance … close-cropped hair, a … large number of tattoos and facial stubble.” The patient then...

    Matt Drudge, author of the conservative media site, is being ridiculed over his tweets in advance of Hurricane Matthew's arrival in Florida. Thursday afternoon and early Friday morning the conservative firebrand took to Twitter to imply that the storm might not be as powerful as government officials say it is. First he tweeted: "The deplorables are starting to wonder if govt has been lying to them about Hurricane Matthew intensity to make exaggerated point on climate." Drudge was apparently referring to Hillary Clinton's description of some of Donald Trump's supporters as "deplorables." Just a few minutes later, Drudge wrote:...

  • Texas Hot Air taking wind/moisture out of Hurricane Ike

    There is technical information in the National Hurricane Center FORECAST Discussion on Hurricanes/Tropical Storms/Tropical Depressions. This is based on FORECAST DISCUSSION #43 at 5 PM EDT on Hurricane Ike (2008). In terms of Hurricane Ike, the NHC (National Hurricane Center) stated that a HIGH PRESSURE system over Texas was causing problems to Hurricane Ike. Sapping the strenght of a Hurricane -- especially for the people in the path of the Hurricane -- is a good thing. The High Pressure System over Texas (simply put -- a lot of lot air and dryness) is keeping the Northern, NorthWestern, and Western side...
