Re: Forward speed an inhibiting factor?

From all of the reading I've ever done, it seems that around 12mph forward speed is the optimum speed for strengthening. It's fast enough to keep a storm from killing itself with upwelling, but fast enough to completely utilize latent heat and coriolis effect to their fullest potential. 12mph is roughly 10kts, so yes, Alabama is on point.

If you prefer to embed something manually for any of these sites, you can also do that. For Ustream, you can only embed live videos manually rather than using the above feature. No other sites are currently supported.

If you embed something manually please be aware that due to the security restrictions on some browsers manually entering embedded code may not allow it to appear correctly when you view it. However, after you post the message it will work properly. This will not be a problem if you use the above feature to add embedded content.
