Today’s Readings: 10-3-2022

Today’s readings are about what may come of the rest of the hurricane season after Ian.

We can’t let our guard down yet as there may be more hurricanes brewing out in the oceans. “The Eastern Pacific hurricane season stretches from May 15 to Nov. 30 and is most active from July to early October, with activity quickly trailing off by the start of November.” See https://www.washingtonpost.com/climate-environment/2022/10/03/hurricane-orlene-mexico-mazatlan/


“It can still be hard to find a car to buy these days. Chip shortages and supply chain issues have improved some, but not enough to meet demand. …If you’re in the market for a used car, there’s another thing to be aware of – soon, there are likely to be a lot of cars that were flooded in Hurricane Ian showing up for sale around the country.” See https://www.marketplace.org/2022/10/03/buyer-beware-some-used-vehicles-coming-on-the-market-could-have-been-flooded-in-hurricane-ian/


“It has been a relatively quiet year in Mexico, which is used to seeing strong hurricanes threaten its coastline. Hurricane Agatha, the first storm of the season, made landfall in Mexico in May. No other storms posed a real landfall threat until Hurricane Kay — which also affected parts of California and the Desert Southwest — made landfall in Baja California in early September…..Eastern Pacific hurricane season stretches from May 15 to Nov. 30 and is most active from July to early October, with activity quickly trailing off by the start of November.”

Rescue efforts are ongoing in Florida after Hurricane Ian

After Hurricane Ian

“There are two systems to watch in the Atlantic — one that bears close watching for interests in the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico, and another off the coast of Africa…..”

Caribbean system

“On Monday morning, an area of showers and thunderstorms was about 1,000 miles east of the Windward Islands. It’s set to cross the Lesser Antilles on Thursday and may gradually develop. The National Hurricane Center estimates a 40 percent chance of eventual organization into at least a tropical depression or storm…..High pressure over the southern United States and Gulf of Mexico would probably prolong its westward journey, keeping it in the Caribbean for at least the next seven to nine days. Given that the system has yet to develop, more detailed forecasts aren’t possible.”

African system

“A second tropical wave is due south of the Cabo Verde islands. It will probably consolidate in the next 48 to 72 hours and become a named storm as it curves northward. It could be shunted west by the Azores High and sneak into the central Atlantic. If this occurs, it will receive the name Julia but should remain away from land.”
