If you look at the strike and cloud visuals together, what you see is
an undeniable pattern in the Gulf Stream. Understand this is the
warmest water in the area, as the gyre, moved by coriolis forces,
brings a lane of warm waters from the tropics. The Stream is about
100 times as large as the flow at the Amazon delta, and a man on a
raft off the coast of Florida could drift 100 miles a day on it.
And electrically, it is incredible. It swallowed up the cold front
EMF like it was NOTHING.
The warmer a saline conducter like the Gulf Stream, the BETTER it
conducts a current. Therefore, since tropical storms are point EMFs
in the ionosphere and cirrus cloud patterns that follow and move
electrically, those "Doran" waves (or whatever you want to call them)
of EMF that expand outward from the center of a storm like Gustav is
going to create dry strips proximate to it. South of the storm--IN
THE GULF STREAM, is exactly that kind of dry air. This dry air is EMF
significant because it denotes positive voltages to ground!!!!!!
Anyway, while it is true Gustav will not be a hurricane for a long
time because it will become extratropical soon--this thought misses
the climate and weather EMF significance of a strong storm at the
cooling end of the Gulf Stream, in that it has Doran wave properties
that reverberate all the way back to the Cape Verde islands!
So far as predicted here in on April 1, a tropical season shifted
later and heavy.
