The Midwest was hit hard last night with thunderstorms. My Facebook timeline is full of pictures of damage. Everything from basement walls collapsing. flooded garages, closed roads, power outages, washed out landscapes, standing water everywhere, and John Deere Harvester had to close their plant entrance due to flooding. They just went through a wind and lightning storm a week ago and just finished clean up
I guess I don't mind 110 degrees and 8% humidity.

How often do these things pop up so close to the US? It seems like most of them form out in the Atlantic and then make their way through the Caribbean and then hit the US.

Everyone knows there is a weather-control panel built into the desk in the Oval Office!
Seriously, though, it is simply a function of the prevailing sea temperatures and atmospheric pressures.
There is little to science about predicting when or where they form.
Unless you are in with the DU crowd, and are convinced it is all about Climate Change (almost typed Global Warming there), and therefore is all Bush's fault!!

They can easily pop up anywhere between the tropics. We've had them originate 30 mi offshore TX, sit there a couple of days and then move it.
The ones that originate off Africa are usually the larger storms as they have a much longer time to feed off the sea heat. They are also most likely to not hit any land other than some island chains well off the east coast.
It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

Updates the map with radar images.
Everyone on the east coast keep an eye on this.
While it probably won't get past a Cat 1 wind wise it
could still bring a lot of trees down and bring flooding rains.
Or it could pull way east and be nothing...
Since it's a hurricane during hurricane season, it's
Global Warming and the BFEEs fault. Just saying...May the FORCE be with you!

Looks like an eye wall has formed, this will be a hurricane
probably before tomorrow. May get some explosive growth...May the FORCE be with you!
