Tropical Depression Barry continues on it's northwards track up the east coast. It will shortly pass over Florida as a 35 mph tropical depression, and the NHC expect it to become subtropical thereafter. This turned out to be not as bad as might have been expected, which is very good news. I'm not sure residents will be so lucky during the rest of the 2007 hurricane season, since it is expected by the authorities to be a very active season. Let's hope they turn out to be wrong.

Well it's official. As predicted, the NHC (National Hurricane Center) has classified 92L as Tropical Storm Barry. Barry is close enough to Florida to cause some consternation, especially if Barry continues to intensify against the odds. It seems that the weather people may have got it wrong this time - that's how difficult it is to predict what the weather is going to do, particularly tropical weather. Tropical Storm Barry is moving towards the north at 12mph with winds of 45mph. The NHC expect Barry to become extratropical within 36 hours.

The Navymil watch developing tropical systems, and perform reconnaisance on them. This development cycle goes through two initial stages - the investigation cycle followed by the reporting cycle.

In the investigation cycle, systems are given a codename beginning at 90, then progessing through 91, 92 etc. for subsequent systems. The L suffix indicates an Atlantic system, the .Invest indicates an investigation. When they get to 99 they start back at the beginning.

During the reporting cycle, when the system has been deemed to have reached tropical depression status, codes 00 to 09 are used with a character-based name suffix.

Once the system has become a tropical depression the National Hurricane Center begins reporting it, and they produce their first forecast and map. The NHC notation for the depression is to use the name 'Tropical Depression ' followed by an uppercase, character-based value. The first depression of the season becomes ONE. By the sixth depression they are using the notation 'Tropical Depression SIX'.
