Yes Jim that is confusing. I mean as you pointed out if the wind is
at 500 or better the wind tends to slow activity and if under 500,
which it was, it tends to increase the chance of formation. There
was a SIGNIFICANT 35 k strike event and that clearly caused the high
pressure area around Bermuda to grow and that seems to push the low
region over land but a few days later it STILL emerged and formed
Gamma and that storm has been a killer over Central America, even as
it stalled and caused the ocean to completely lose local carbination
causing the storm to peter out.
