Things are fairly quiet in the tropics at the moment. NHC is tracking a disturbance in the eastern Caribbean but at the moment, development is not expected.

I'm in Guam in the western Pacific for the next three weeks taking part in a tropical weather research project. So far, the Pacific has been as quiet as the Atlantic so we're waiting for something to fly.

I'll be sure to post pictures as I take them and I'll keep you posted on our work here. I'll also keep an eye on the Atlantic Basin and post updates as needed.

Quoting BarnDweller:
Hoping to hear from your blog Randy.... But I'm sure you are getting very busy.


Hi! Yes, I have been very remiss here. I'm in Guam right now flying typhoons (or systems the scientists keep hoping will become typhoons) and I haven't had a lot of time o focus on the Atlantic.. which has been much busier than the Pacific for a change. However I will be back in the states Wednesday and plan to get back on the ball here!

Hi Randy, A year or two after I left Guam in the 1970s (was assistant prof at U of Guam) there was a hurricane with winds that were too high to measure. Friends said that blades of grass went through the concreate block walls of their homes up on the golf course. (Not verified by moi.)

I loved partying on the hotel strip down from the hospital and swimming at the south end of the island where the coral was so beautiful.

I hope you have a chance to get around a bit...and come home in one piece.

Hey Randy - are you guys flying tracks or waiting on storms? It looks really quiet in that part of the world.


It is quiet. We're waiting on storms. This project requires well developed storms.

Good to hear from you.

I've been to Guam's airport three times, but only to change planes. It (the island, not the airport) seemed really nice. I wish I had a chance to get out and check it out.

Enjoy the stay, while you're there!
