    Is this the disturbance which was supposed to do more damage to NYC more than King Kong?

    They should just have a little disembodied circle somewhere in AL. They should do that with every map on every topic from now on.

    In the Gulf? Not that unusual. However, this one is more NHC playing games trying to verify their preseason forecast.

    At 8am, it was an area of disturbed weather with a 30% chance of becoming a named system before landfall.
    At 11:45am, it was still an area of disturbed weather that "might" become a tropical depression before landfall.
    At 1:00pm, it was Tropical Depression 11, with landfall expected in the next hour
    At 1:45pm, it was Tropical Storm Imelda
    At 2:30pm, it was inland.

    It went from just a 30% chance of even developing to a Tropical Storm in under 6 hours. Either whomever was on the morning shift at NHC really blew it big time, or more likely, they got a report of strong winds in the middle of a thunderstorm on the coast and upgraded it based on 1 or two observations.

    Good to know that I am not alone in thinking that sometimes NHC has given names to storms which would have been ignored years ago.

    A bit alarmist and hype generating, but welcome to the Hurricane California?
