Another top story; it's late season for this hemisphere, but there might be an area of low pressure that's threatening Brazil. It's four degrees south of the equator, in low wind shear, moist tropical climate over it, and a warm water of 30 degrees celsius under it. The only that stands in it's way is the history of south atlantic tropical cyclones; there are not many that form there. In fact, only three tropical storms ever formed there (I excluded a tropical depression and a subtropical storm). Of those, only one has reached hurricane strength; Aldonca is it's name. But to avoid confusion, I'll come up with a naming scheme for the South atlantic:
- Abrew (ay brew)
- Beth (Beth)
- Charlen (char len)
- Drake (jra ke)
- Evangen (ev en gen)
- Faina (fah ean uh)
- Gerean (jer en)
This list of names will be given to tropical cyclones that are at least depression strength (30mph) and will be replaced if that storm took landfall. This list started 2009, in May, so the storm list will either start from the storm I'm tracking right now, or in the 2010 South atlantic cyclone season. The length of the season is short; January to April. Typically, most are in the late january.
We'll be watching it closely. Bye!

CBS4 has become Tropical depression One, and I could tell from the imagery One was there from the way it puffed up just before landfall.

This storm is being wierd. If you look at this video, 90 is still raging over cold water. I don't know how it can do this, but it is, by Waha, officially protoAna. All it needs is more cloud coverage to be declared Subtropical storm Ana. As it does so, it will either landfall into Louisiana, or fizzle out trying to survive the wind shear it awaits four days after right now...
Oh crap! I can't get my video uploaded. If you want to see it, go on google and type "storm number one 2009". It might not be there, though. Don't look for it on youtube. I'm not allowed there.

After four days, cbs4 is weakening because of 2 factors:
2. This is something called the rainfall effect. Storms typically have very cold rainfall. As tropical systems use up the evaporating warm water needed for tropical development, they rainfall colder water. Storms can't exist off of this water, and, if staying still, they weaken or stay the same strengh. This is why hurricanes can't go over a certain speed limit in wind speed.
As the storm gets it's lower level eye and it's upper level eye merged, it's OCOC (overall center of circulation) will start to expand, and lets consider the trades are eventually going to move to unused warm water, and by then, there is a forty percent chance it will turn into a tropical storm. If it does so, it will be named "Ana".
It has dropped in air pressure from 1008 to 1006.
