ml-d on Ernesto close but no cigaro (prayers w/ those in affected areas)
Once Ernesto tightened its outermost bands it looks like the needed interaction as to the ml-d's AOI could not occur. therefore the ml-d in nyc has no direct influence on Ernesto, unless the natural trend takes Ernesto further north (direct north, which is very rare from where Ernesto is presently 201208-08:7:27p EDT. remember AS TO MY THEORY for any storm/Low or Tropical Formation to be controlled FULLY by the AOI of the ml-d the Low's area has to have 2/3rds of its circulation passing within the ml-d's AOI notice in the following crappy drawing
(if image is not fully presented or too small try HERE )
that the ml-d's outermost rings (ONLY ON WHEN PULSED) is just outside the outermost circulation of Ernesto. Lets also watch just off ne/se.
BTW this crappy drawing or a version of it i first drew in 1980, sent The Weather Channel several version from 1992-1995 just in case someone thinks i am making the drawing fit the situation.
BTW2 some might ask that the outermost third of Eernesto's circulation seems to be under the ml-d's outermost PULSED RING , yes, but Ernesto directional movement is going away so a slight tug will occur on Ernesto but that will turn it more WNW not N and if Ernesto's momentum continues it'll go fully out of ml-d's influence till jet-streams bring Ernesto's remnants back east or Ernesto reforms as ??? over the Pacific
