    This is a blog update for the CobraStrike Coastal Forecasting Center, which provides updates on potential tropical cyclone impacts near the coasts of the eastern Pacific and north Atlantic. THIS IS NOT NHC DATA! DO NOT USE THIS INFORMATION FOR EMERGENCY PLANNING.

    ^WINDS... Model consensus provides the solution that 03E will move out into sea, and given the size of the storm, will likely not produce considerably damaging winds along the Mexican coast. Sustained winds will likely peak along the coast below tropical storm force at around 30 or 35 mph. However, it is possible for i…

    As Atlantic wishcasters and regular tropical cyclone enthusiasts alike were ready to call this season off due to a string of weak storms, despite still spitting climatologically early systems, Invest 95L, invested yesterday as it was over the Yucatan Peninsula, has organized in the Bay of Campeche into Tropical Depression Six, the sixth tropical cyclone of the season. The cyclogenesis of the tropical depression coincided with a strong Kelvin wave that propogated eastward and also assisted in the cyclogenesis of Ivo and Invest 95E.

Hurricane Bill XXVII (27) was a bill that was introduced and then failed on Wednesday, June 14, 2012 at 21:13z in the same semi-meeting. In addition, Bill 24, and subsequently, 25, were fixed.

    "The Hurricane Wiki has decided to eliminate the purpose and use of silence periods in ##hurricanes."

    Under Bill 026 a new warning policy was introduced. Instead of the silence method, there would be a watch, a warning, a kick, and after 4 kicks, a 5 minute temporary ban. The first ban recorded was at 23:36, when TAWX14 was banned for multiple accounts of bad behavior.
