I finished preparing my presentation. I'm discussing the "cone of uncertainty" - what it is, how it's changed over time, how it is almost completely misunderstood and misused, why I think it has outlived its usefulness, and a proposal for a new "cone". Have to find a good name for it, though. The "ISPOU" isn't catchy. ;-)

Wish I could go - I know y'all will have a great time :lol:
I am expecting great photos of Dr. Neil Frank!
Maybe next year I can talk about Accessibility and Functional Needs.
Y'all have a safe and wonderful time.
I'll leave the weather light on for you.

I am sure there will be many, many pictures taken this year. I actually worked on a slight bug in my digital camera yesterday to get ready. A week from this Wednesday we all will be flying down to beautiful South Padre Island and here's hoping for warm and pleasant weather while we are there. Last year wxman57 and I could barely put our toes in the Gulf as the water was still a bit too chilly for our liking. I have been receiving e-mails this week from some of the other attendees, presenters as well as Alex Garcia and Tim Smith, the Conference organizers. We are expecting a great turn out this year and it will be good to see old Tropical Weather friends from across the United States at this great Conference. Katdaddy better keep us out of those late night Hospitality Room 'meetings' as we have an early start to the Thursday and Friday Conference sessions. ;)

Fascinating! I thought I understood the concept of the cone of uncertainty. Please fill us in on your findings. I do agree, "ISPOU" isn't as memorable. :)

One week from today, David and I will be departing IAH while Katdaddy and wxman57 will be departing HOU heading S for the almost one hour flight to S Padre Island for the 2016 National Tropical Weather Conference. Our Conference Schedule next Wednesday will start with a Meet and Greet Wednesday evening before the daily sessions begin Thursday Morning and continuing Friday. We will start posting pictures a week from today and keep everyone updated on the activities and newsworthy items as we look ahead to Tropical Season 2016!

Another update before we depart early next Wednesday for the 2016 National Tropical Weather Conference. A new feature this year will be a Facebook "LIVE" link that we will provide both here and on our TxWeatherBoard Facebook page. It will give those that are interested the opportunity to experience some of the great presentations to be given and other events throughout the Conference. We encourage our folks to follow us as we head to S Padre Island. I am hearing some 'early chatter' that there may be some news regarding the potential 2016 North Atlantic Hurricane Season activity and how the Gulf of Mexico may be one of the more favored areas for potential Tropical Development/Landfall as El Nino continues to slowly transition toward La Nina particularly when we near peak activity time in August and September.

Weather is looking good for the NTWC. Have to fly to New Orleans Monday morning for a presentation there at an Edison Electric Institute meeting then to Shell in Norco on Tuesday morning for a meeting then to Dow in Plaquemine for an executive briefing Tuesday afternoon. Hopefully, I'll make my 6:50pm flight out of New Orleans that evening so I can fly out the next morning with you guys!
