From: Dr. Jeff Masters' WunderBlog:
Western Caribbean disturbance 98L still a threat to develop

Posted: 1:24 PM EDT on October 10, 2010

"An area of disturbed weather in the Western Caribbean, a few hundred miles east of the coast of Nicaragua, has a 60% chance of becoming a tropical depression by Tuesday as it moves northwest at 5 - 10 mph. The disturbance has quite a bit of spin, but an organized surface circulation is not yet apparent on satellite images. The disturbance will spread heavy rains to northeastern Honduras and Nicaragua today and Monday, and to Belize and Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula on Tuesday."

Data from the Hurricane Hunters, land stations, and satellite imagery reveal that the strong tropical disturbance centered near the coast of Honduras just west of the border with Nicaragua is now Tropical Storm Paula. The computer models predict Paula will continue on a west-northwest to northwest motion through Wednesday, which would take the storm close to landfall on the coast of Belize or Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula Tuesday night or Wednesday morning. At that time, Paula may be approaching Category 1 hurricane status. The long range fate of the storm is uncertain, and Paula could dissipate over the Yucatan, wander in the Western Caribbean for many days, or pass over Cuba and the Bahamas late this week.

OK Paula, now you've done it!

Seriously, I hope it remains just a tropical storm that passes quickly.

I have been trying to invest in these things going back to number 92 and I still haven't made any money. Now we have Paula and it is some-one's fault.

Probably a good time to stock up on emergency provisions like liquor, I already hit Similares today for medicine. I'd assume most all have done all the important things and now is the time to get started on the misc things around the yard and whatever needs to be done to the household.

It looks like a category ONE if it comes here. Does anyone know if Adrian will be having kite boarding lessons during the event?

Stay safe and you're in Cozumel, things could be seriously worse like being someplace else. Now would be a good time for any South Florida residents to evacuate to Tennessee or Ohio.

When a hurricane goes out to sea on the East Coast, I can always count on a few of my employees to call in "sick". Surfing is a sickness, correct? Some of them have almost used up their PTO. Might be time to teach the boss how to surf. :D

I have been getting razzed about this once the storm was named.

If I had to have my name attacked to anything, I would rather it be a hurricane, then say the PLAGUE!

From the models I looked at this morning, there is a possibility that the storm could stay out to sea by about 70 miles...which would be similar to what Dean did.

Take precautions, stay safe all.
