2012 Atlantic Hurricane Season Birdseye Discussion #81A (Special Update)
...AUGUST 17 2012...6:35 PM EDT...
Tropical storm warnings are suddenly required for the east coast of Mexico...as a recon aircraft investigation finds the remnants of Tropical Depression Seven in the Bay of Campeche have regenerated into Tropical Storm Helene. This is contrary to my earlier statement on this system in full discussion #81...where I forecasted this to become close to a tropical depression (but not quiet get there) before landfall in Mexico. If this remains a tropical cyclone by the time I write my next full discussion (late this evening or early tomorrow)...then it will be awarded a special feature section and forecast on my blog.
Latest information on Helene...including tropical storm warnings and forecasts...can be found on the National Hurricane Center website (www.nhc.noaa.gov)

Return to full discussion #81 for an assessment on the rest of the Atlantic tropics.
