    Jose likely to become a sprawling gale and surf generator
    No matter which model has the best handle on its track, Jose will probably evolve into a much different creature than it is now. Vertical wind shear will be relentless through Tuesday, capping Jose’s strength. Beyond Tuesday, Jose will be moving over SSTs below 26°C (79°F), which is too cool to support tropical development. This means Jose will begin to take on characteristics of a midlatitude (post-tropical) storm as the week progresses. A post-tropical Jose would have a weaker core wind field but a larger zone of gale-force winds, so coastlines from North Carolina to southern New England are in for a long period of rough surf and an increasing risk of beach erosion. If Jose were to make landfall, it could end up producing significant surge even as a post-tropical storm.

    Significant beach erosion is when all those goodies that are many feet out of reach of your detector are suddenly just below the surface. Happy hunting, East Coast Beach Pirates.

    I haven't been around much, busy building the new house by myself so lots to do and little time to do it. Will try to get out at least once this season before it closes.

    How is the house coming Eric? Looked pretty good last time you posted a picture of it. I do hope you have time to get out hunting.

    Eric, as said I hope all is well with the building of the new castle. With all the work you've been doing, here's hoping you can get out for a hunt or two before the close of the season. Take care, and it's good to hear from you.
