Invest 99L in Western Caribbean a Threat to Develop on Monday

Dr. Jeff Masters, August 30, 2014

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

Although conditions are favorable for development, 99L will likely not have enough time to develop before crossing Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula on Sunday. Conditions will be even more favorable for development on Monday when the wave will emerge in the Gulf of Mexico's Bay of Campeche.

Climate Case Study: California Drought (1)

Dr. Ricky Rood, August 22, 2014

Professor, University of Michigan

I can’t help but think of the carnivores finding the easy pickings of the herds collected around the drying water holes at what would become the Agate Fossil Beds.
