SEVERE WEATHER ALERT:

Hurricane Katia Threat

The current forecast models are not sophisticated enough to pick-up on the complicated weather pattern that is evolving over the eastern part of the U.S. There are 3 troughs, 2 areas of high pressures, and tropical storm Lee to put into the equation. When things are all said and done, Katia, in her hurricane form, will get dangerously close to the Outer Banks and possibly other locations along the Eastern Seaboard. At this point, it is too early to exclude North Florida from the realm of possibilities, with this storm.  

Current Models

Hurricane Katia Satellite
The first trough that affected Katia has already moved off into the Atlantic waters. While between troughs, Katia will move on a more westward track. Trough number "2" should turn the storm more northerly, but only briefly. This second trough is weak and eventually will die out; this process is already happening. (These events are part of the easy part of the forecast. 


The turning mechanism for Katia is over the Heartland of the U.S. It might or might not combine forces Lee over the coming days. Without Lee and the next trough combing, Katia will get dangerously close to the Southeast U.S. (This include Florida), before lifting out. If Lee does not help to amplify the ridge in the Northeast and, in fact, acts as some sort of mechanism to deepen the trough, the threat from Katia will be much higher up the East Coast.

Here are possible future scenarios:
1) If Lee moves towards Texas...Katia will be a FL/GA Threat
2) If Lee Continues to propagate around Louisiana...Katia will be a Threat to SC/NC
3) If Lee dies out over portions of the Southeast...Katia will be a Threat GA/SC/NC
3) If Lee only makes it to the Tennessee Valley...Threat will be north of North Carolina and include the Northeast

Any threat from Katia, to any coastline, would not come before September 9th.

The Navy NOGAPS model, a model that has a lot of weight in my tropical decisions, has Katia making landfall, as hurricane, in Southeast Georgia next week.

In its original sense this was a group of individuals defined mainly by their membership of some formal
body, but the concept has been expanded to encompass the customers of a range of retail outlets.
Bunches of cables could be a headache otherwise correctly tied.
With this is mind, it's no surprise that men's fashion has
seen the re-emergence of the bow tie on to both the high street and the catwalk.

Body builders use powders to mix with other food that helps them bulk up.
Eating out, especially fast food, frequently can do harm to your health.
However, it's also easy to lose weight, even if the process itself can be slow.

A few things that can help avoid this issue are taking digestive enzymes before eating large meals, not drinking a lot of liquid before or while eating (this dilutes natural digestive enzymes and stomach acid), drinking a lot of water, and
adding probiotics to your diet. There are many good muscle building and
weight gaining programs that you can buy and download from the internet.

How to gain weight for skinny guys is about attitude, exercise, nutrition, and rest.
