    The GFS has been consistently showing possible tropical or subtropical development near the Bahamas.

    Happy hour seems to be a bit more enthusiastic about a subtropical system. The GFS's successor? Not excited at all. Looks like we should get a good model comparison this year having both the FV3 and the GFS easily comparable.

    And so it begins:

    1. A large area of showers and thunderstorms near the Bahamas is
    associated with an upper-level low pressure system and a surface
    trough. The system is forecast to move westward over the Florida
    peninsula on Saturday with no significant development. Locally
    heavy rains and gusty winds are possible over portions of the
    Bahamas and southern Florida through this weekend. Please monitor
    products from your local weather office for more details. No
    additional Special Outlooks on this system will be issued unless
    conditions warrant.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days...low...near 0 percent.

    Ah yes, the fantasy range. To some fun to look at, but I don't think it's anything worth worrying about. If these keep happening, it may though.

    I'd bet heavily on the under on a LA hurricane hit near 5/23 and feel very safe about it. I'd almost feel safe betting the farm.

    However, as we get into late May/June, it is worth a mention that Gulf TC activity tends to be more active than normal in oncoming El Nino seasons (just in case we have El Nino coming). Then, after June, it tends to become less active than normal in oncoming El Nino seasons.

    Looks like the odds are increasing on the main GFS but the FV3 has this much stronger storm and it does make landfall too around Pensacola that run. May have our first legitimate threat.[​IMG]

    A cat 2 in the E GOM on 5/19 with a H hit on Pensacola on 5/21 on this FV3 run. I'll take the under again with high confidence though not quite as high confidence as I had going against the GFS run of yesterday hitting LA with a H on 5/23 because the E GOM would be favored over the W GOM should something freaky like this occur this early.

    The crazy 12Z FV3 has a cat 2 H in the E GOM that strengthens to 970 mb and then goes onshore and moves to about 75 miles SSE of Phil, just SE of Ocala, at hour 300 during the evening of 5/20. So, nothing to see here, folks.

    Well, we can get a good trial run on the FV3 here. Unfortunately, the GFS didn't do bad with sniffing stuff out in the LR last year, but was a bit dramatic at times. The Euro suppressed several big storms and completely missed major development in many. As for the run today, that's just another one showing an E Gulf impact. [​IMG]

    Latest FV3 puts the storm faster than the previous several runs and up the West coast of Florida.
