The MJO.

green denotes active MJO areas~ increased rain, enhanced chances of cyclones. The brown is none active supressed areas.

Another view of where it has been up to in graphic form.


On to the doldrums~ The blue shows where the surface wind has been low for atleast 4 days now. This raises SST in those areas.

This is also usually pretty bad for any coral in these areas this time of year.

WED-FRI~ Rain chances 60% day, 30% night. Interior & east coast has the best chance for the afternoon sea breeze storms. Coverage should be good so noone is out of the question. Watch for severe weather. Temps should be about normal for this time of year.

Sat & Sun~ Active rainy period most likely continues.

I guess that ULL I was watching was 97L a short time & is now gone. Missed it.

CPAC

06E~COSME gone

EPAC 98E~Dalila 45kts 1000mb~ shouldn't hit land.


WPAC 96W~15kts 1010mb

Southern Hemisphere~ 25kts 1004mb
This is wierd for this time of the year. So much so a pic for the arcives.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Updated July 24th~ weekly is out. Their summary stayed the same reading~ dynamic models call for rapid transition to La Nina where statistical models & recent trends in surface & subsurface tempuratures suggest either a slower evolution to La Nina or the continuation of ENSO neutral conditions.

Regions 1&2 stayed at -1.9, region 3 ended at -.7, 3.4 back up from -.4 to -.2, and region 4 rose from .2 to .3



We're still on the cool side of neutral. The fall of ENSO has moderated once again for now.

The cool pool below continues to build, moved some toward the surface as well, but the warm water from the west is fighting back once again. Nature's ebb & flow.


this is a look back over the last year with Aug of 2006 at the top, now at the bottom~ the left the west Pacific, the right the east end of the Pacific, a skinny snap shot of the water stretched across the equator, then stacked though time. We looked due for a little moderation.


ESPI fell from -1.11 to -1.21 for the last weeks for the last 30 days. The moderation I called for has happened, the next week or 2 should bring near the same or slightly cooler. Make it to La Nina condition? Maybe in the next drop. Probibly not in the next 2 weeks.

Hey Skye, congratulations! I had no idea. Guess I really am just a foul-weather friend after all, lol.

Reading your labor story sent chills up my spine. I sat by my wife's side for all four of my son's births, fortunately she was fast on delivery. The only scary one was with the birth of our 3rd son Dylan, he was delivered face up, which was brutal for my wife. We had a real "naturalist" midwife, Sara, who lived in the duplex next door who we were good friends with, and it was comforting to have her there along with the doctor. When the time came for the final push my wife screamed bloody murder and the baby literally flew out through the air into the doctor's hands. As the doctor and Sara tended to my wife they let me hold my new son as I was guided into the adjoining room. I noticed something was wrong, he wasn't crying. His head was all misshapen and bruised. He was a conehead!

Everything turned out OK, and that was a long time ago. Now I have two teenagers plus two 21+ year old sons who moved out and then moved back, LOL.

I hope your new little Dragonfly is the peaceful dreamy type and not a colicy one who cries like every waking minute. With a new baby around, I sure appreciate your taking time occasionally to post to the main blog. Your posts are among the best (seriously, I even checked with the "Best" filter!).

Cheers!

Hey everyone~ only got a few min. That opertunitity to sleep lastnight was short lived (15 min) then the angel baby was up all night & most the day. Finally getting a bit o sleep out of him. I had a few naps earlier. Husband is a great dad & gives me breaks. He'll be around the next few weeks so I don't have it quite as rough as many do with one this age.

Gator & ya'll south of me look out, that looks nasty!

As far as labor & delivery, was hell. Much harder than the 1st which I had done with no pain killers. This time labored on & off 24 hrs before heading to the hospital around 11pm. Contractions every 2-3 min if not on top of one another. I couldn't sit or lay down without previously unknown pain. (were my hip bones gonna break???) Around 3am I couldn't keep from pushing, it was too early, things were brused & stalled, I was stuck & the pain like nothing ever before. Started screaming epidural when i was about to pass out from pain & a few hours had passed with no progression. The epidural about made the husband pass out. That took a little after 4am. Things got real scary then, though it took me a bit to realize that since my Blood Pressure dropped from the epi to near dead levels. I started coming to again when the bottom # was back in the 30s to realize the room was full of paniced people & Dragonfly's Heart Rate had been dangerously low for the last 6 min~ also due to the epi. They brought me back just in time to get me to start huffing oxygen as hard as I could. It brought Dragonfly around so I avoided my 1st of many opertunities to have that kid cut outta me to save him. It took several hours & alotta phedrine to stabilize my blood pressure. If I got calm & relaxed more than 30 mins it got too low anyway. Thanks Mom for the lively debates when needed to keep it up. I was also on Oxygen the rest of the delivery for Dragonfly, his heart rate kept dropping & I kept huffing. This causes sore throats!! Around 8:15am Petocin was started after still no progress. Around 12:15pm the nurse thought it may be time to push, than not time, got all nervous & another Dragonfly scare all in 4 mins. So I refused to cooperate beyond what had worked so far til I saw my Doctor, who was there in 3 minutes. Took charge & we got him out pretty quick after that. The 1st 1/2 of pushing Dragonfly would near quit the heart rate after each set of pushes, I'd have to start huffing before I could even start recovering. Scary. & that dang nurse was freaking the husband with her hand gestures & whispers. Well born at 1:01pm..finally. Wasn't breathing, 1/2 blue~ ApGar at birth was a 6 & in 5 min a 10. Thank you respatory lady who had been called in on standby & of course my doc & to all ya'll that sent your good thoughts & wishes.

An after thought~ My doctor informed me that had I not totally quit smoking near 7 months ago my circulation wouldn't have been good enough to carry the oxygen to Dragonfly & it most defenately would have ended in a c-section. Biggest reward yet & one I never saw coming.

Hey everyone! I lived.. Got home this afternoon. Had alotta company, a parade that just stopped. After Dragonfly spent the day being handed around he's up late (as expected) looking for some of my time. So when he goes to sleep all depends on when & if gamma gets the birth story tonight. It's a long one.

Couldn't help but look, interesting feature off Jaxsonville (not 98L).

I read all the comments, thanks everyone for thinking of us, I needed all the good thoughts ya'll sent. That was way rougher than I expected. The poems are going on his wall.. Thanks {{{everyone}}}.

I'll try to get back later tonight.

Good afternoon skye,

You needed an afternoon bump!

So when you think you will go home? baby born Thursday, so let's see, if you are lucky you will get to stay 3 days; my daughter only got to stay 2 days...so they will probably "spring" you later tonight or tomorrow.

Take care and have a wonderful Home Coming!!!!

The worst is over now... and Skye has looked into the eyes of lil' Dragonfly!!! It must have wiped away all her pains to finally hold him in her arms!
OGal, THAT IS ONE BEAUTIFUL POEM !!!
You're right Gamma, Skye and I did have something going on lately... but it was very innocent - I swear over my old menthol ciggies lol

So first 24 hours is over; actually it will be first 28 hours. How is little Dragonfly doing? Hope you are getting some rest; I'll bet you are so sore and tired.
