- 90% chance of Hurricane Bonnie forming

I guess there was too much rum involved and I forgot all about hurricane Alex came and went ages ago.
 
Hurricane Alex was in January 2016 being only the 2nd hurricane in recorded history to appear in January. The last one was in 1938.
 
So if this mess in the Atlantic forms into a hurricane, she will be Bonnie. It's still 4 more days before the official hurricane season opens and we may be up to Colin by then.
 
Amazing.
 
Bonnie is not a threat to the Virgin Islands, but she is chasing Dear Miss Mermaid, because I am swimming around the Sea Islands off the coast of South Carolina where Bonnie might be headed.
 
I guess I better look at swimming up a river inland somewhere.
 

Happy Un-Hurricane Season,
Dear Miss Mermaid

Followed by the greek alphabet, if needed. We pray we need that! Lawdy mercy.
 
Actually we could skip a year of no hurricanes. However... X marks the spot!
 
Someone tell Mother Nature she's trying to open hurricane season a wee bit too early!
Shower activity associated with the low pressure area located
between Bermuda and the Bahamas has become somewhat better organized
since yesterday, and the circulation of the low has become a little
better defined.  
Environmental conditions are expected to be
generally conducive for a tropical or subtropical cyclone to form on
Friday or Saturday while this system moves west-northwestward or
northwestward toward the southeastern United States coast.  
All interests along the southeast coast from Georgia through North
Carolina should monitor the progress of this low.  
A Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate the
low on Friday afternoon. 
 

Happy Un-Hurricane Season,
Dear Miss Mermaid
