BAHAMA LOW STALLS, NEW STORM LIKELY THIS WEEKEND

Tropical Storm PATTY should dissipate by Sunday, while the low pressure east southeast of the Windward Islands should grow into a Tropical Storm RAFAEL on the weekend.

Weather patterns off the U.S. east coast next week will change. High pressure over the weekend will be giving way to a front the first of the week that should cause the Lesser Antilles storm to change from a northwest track to a northerly one well east of the U.S. east coast.

      When two storms approach each other two things may happen. One is if they are not strong storms, the smaller or weaker storm will probably fade away and be absorbed into the stronger one’s circulation.

      The other case involves two strong tropical storms or hurricanes. They physically cannot combine because opposing winds will cause them to “bounce away” from each other, and they will move in different directions. A Japanese scientist studied this in the in the 1950’s. It is called the “Fujiwhara Effect”.
