AFTER RECORD BREAKING HEAT, A COLD FRONT WILL SLOWLY MOVE THROUGH THE HAMPTON ROADS REGION BRINGING COOLER CONDITIONS THIS WEEKEND... SHOWERS AND STORMS ARE EXPECTED ON MONDAY AS ANOTHER COLD FRONT APPROACHES
The Weaker the Tropical Cyclone, the Further West the Storm May Go
Did you know that tropical cyclones that remain weak as they track westward have less of a chance to re-curve to the north? This is because the stronger the storm, the higher the cloud tops extend into the upper-atmosphere. Higher in the atmosphere, the wind flow is normally more likely to carry the storm a bit further northward. This is especially true for the Cape Verde storms.
