We have a new Hurricane in town. It's name is Paloma. I hope it stays pretty peaceful. Coo-coo. Coo-coo. Coo-coo.

HURRICANE PALOMA DISCUSSION NUMBER 8
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL172008
1000 AM EST FRI NOV 07 2008

PALOMA IS CONTINUING TO STRENGTHEN THIS MORNING WITH HINTS OF AN EYE ON VISIBLE SATELLITE PICTURES. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS INCREASED TO 75 KT AND IS IN LINE WITH MOST RECENT DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM TAFB/SAB. FURTHER STRENGTHENING IS LIKELY FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS OR SO BEFORE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR INCREASES. CURIOUSLY...THE GFDL/HWRF NOW SHOW THE HURRICANE COMING UP A BIT SHY OF MAJOR HURRICANE STATUS. UNTIL WE SEE SOME SIGNS THAT PALOMA IS NOT CONTINUING TO INTENSIFY...IT IS BEST TO KEEP THE PREVIOUS FORECAST OF THE SYSTEM BECOMING A MAJOR HURRICANE. BY SUNDAY...THE SHEAR INCREASES TO SUCH A HIGH DEGREE THAT PALOMA MAY WEAKEN EVEN FASTER THAN SHOWN BELOW. ON TUESDAY...THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY THAT THE SYSTEM WILL TRANSITION TO AN EXTRATROPICAL CYCLONE...BUT SINCE THE BAROCLINIC INFLUENCES SEEM LIMITED...REMNANT LOW SEEMS LIKE THE MORE ACCURATE TERM. THE CANADIAN TERM POST-TROPICAL MAY ALSO FIT THIS SITUATION.
