Tropical Storm Gert makes landfall, Franklin stalls
So, the latest on our tropical friends? Gert has come ashore as a minimal tropical storm and done little besides dampen somebody's Domingo. Franklin really can't decide what to do. Heavy shear has reduced him to 45 mph and 1005 mb yet he has recently stalled and began to retrograde back to the southwest. None of the models forecasted this type of motion. While somebody may be thinking "Oh, the BAM did it!", the BAM never called for it to move northeast in the first place. Oh well! I am going on a little trip this week but will be checking in whenever I can. Until there Jordan will hold down the fort and keep everyone up to date. Enjoy your week!
