Sometimes it pays to observe what's going on around us rather than looking at the computer screen or a particular computer forecast model.  Here are some observations a viewer noted earlier today:

Andy,

it's Bob M. here from Paris Mountain-
 
Some observations this week:

1. A large (40-60) flock of swallows early one morning.  We have a few in our area, but I never have seen that many at one time.  They never winter here, they must have been migrating.

2. Large numbers (20-30) of Robins near the YMCA along the Swamp Rabbit Trail.  It seems early for this to happen.

3. Quite a few (15-20 or so) Mockingbirds near the Swamp Rabbit Trail in the Berea area.  I had never noticed these birds :flocking", if that was what they were doing.  They seldom winter in our area.
 
Indications of an early fall this year?  What do you think?
 
    -Bob

Tropics Becoming Active Again:  There is a new disturbance worth keeping a close eye on way out in the Atlantic (image on right).  The low-level and mid-level clouds forming around a vigorous tropical wave have already shown some signs of organization.  The system circled in red has a high probability of becoming our next tropical system - would be Isaac.  Also, the steering winds ahead of this tropical system COULD bring this one in close contact to the United States within 7-10 days.
