    Seriously...they can't think of a better name than...Sixteen? WTF?!? icon_lol.gif

    Anyway, just letting the Eastern Florida folks know we're getting really wet right now in SoFla, and will be blown later today. You'll get blown when it's your turn. Right now Key West is getting the biggest blow job, but it should be an even bigger one when it gets here in a few hours. I can hardly wait to get blown. Yay! icon_biggrin.gif (it's only supposed to have winds of 30-70 MPH...nothing worst than the average t-storm cluster).

    Tropical Depression 16? Perhaps crop-dusters loaded with Prozac aerosol is the answer..

    Storms only receive names when they become Tropical Storms, ie. with sustained winds greater than 38mph. From the NOAA website here are the definitiions:

    These are terms used to describe the progressive levels of organized disturbed weather in the tropics that are of less than hurricane status.

    Tropical Disturbance
    A discrete tropical weather system of apparently organized convection - generally 200 to 600 km (100 to 300 nmi) in diameter - originating in the tropics or subtropics, having a nonfrontal migratory character, and maintaining its identity for 24 hours or more. It may or may not be associated with a detectable perturbation of the wind field. Disturbances associated with perturbations in the wind field and progressing through the tropics from east to west are also known as easterly waves .

    Tropical Depression
    A tropical cyclone in which the maximum sustained wind speed (using the U.S. 1 minute average standard) is up to 33 kt (38 mph, 17 m/s). Depressions have a closed circulation.

    Tropical Storm
    A tropical cyclone in which the maximum sustained surface wind speed (using the U.S. 1 minute average standard) ranges from 34 kt (39 mph,17.5 m/s) to 63 kt (73 mph, 32.5 m/s). The convection in tropical storms is usually more concentrated near the center with outer rainfall organizing into distinct bands.

    Hurricane
    When winds in a tropical cyclone equal or exceed 64 kt (74 mph, 33 m/s) it is called a hurricane (in the Atlantic and eastern and central Pacific Oceans). Hurricanes are further designated by categories on the Saffir-Simpson scale. Hurricanes in categories 3, 4, 5 are known as Major Hurricanes or Intense Hurricanes.

    Hunni, just an FYI:

    Tropical depressions are never named. Typically the storm has to reach "tropical storm" status to be assigned a name. Now if this current storm makes it to "tropical storm" status it will be named Nicole.

    Tropical storms have winds of over 36mph icon_smile.gif

    Just had to add that Topical Depression 16/Tropical Storm Nicole was the worst excuse for a storm system I've ever seen. I don't think I saw a palm frond even move!!! I've also seen FAR more rain in an average thunderstorm.
