Tropical Weather Update

Tropical Waves
An area of low pressure well off the the mid-Atlantic coast has intensitied into tropical storm Odette. However, it is more like a 'baroclinic' low pressure system than a tropical storm with the stronger winds and storms well NE of the center of rotataion. It will remain at sea but the broad circulation around it will generate strong winds along the Atlantic Canadian coast.

There will be several tropical waves moving off the coast of Africa over the next several days and at the moment, the one midway between Africa and the Virgin Islands could develop into a named storm. The one off the coast of Africa could also become a storm. None of these are a threat to our area of SE GA / SE SC for the next week. The next names on the list are Peter and Rose.

The Wizard Nebula ... NGC 7380
I took this image from a monochrome camera (ZWO ASI 1600mm) using narrowband filters for the color channels. For the RED channel, I used a blend the Sulfur 2 filter & The hydrogen-Alpha filter … GREEN channel, Hydrogen-alpha filter, and for the BLUE channel I used the Oxygen 3 filter. This is known as the 'Hubble Palette' of color combination. Total exposure time was 3hr 55min.
This nebula is located 7200 light years away. Visually, the interplay of stars, gas, and dust has created a shape that appears to some like a fictional medieval sorcerer. In the sky, it located high in the NE after 10 pm in middle September. It's impossible to see without a telescope.

This is a new product that I have been watching from Tropical Tidbits Climate Models. This is not a forecast but just an 'outlook'. Keep in mind, the 7 day period is the average of those days with some days above the values and other could be below the values. This is used to get a better idea as to what to expect (maybe).
