No - I was looking at the NHC's map for that storm and saw it where I'm not used to seeing them.

You may wish to look up "strange attractor" - no, not a veiled reference to you and M-M, but a really good description of how weather works.

From Wikipedia
Quote:
Strange attractor
A plot of Lorenz's strange attractor for values ρ = 28, σ = 10, β = 8/3

An attractor is called strange if it has a fractal structure.[1] This is often the case when the dynamics on it are chaotic, but strange nonchaotic attractors also exist. If a strange attractor is chaotic, exhibiting sensitive dependence on initial conditions, then any two arbitrarily close alternative initial points on the attractor, after any of various numbers of iterations, will lead to points that are arbitrarily far apart (subject to the confines of the attractor), and after any of various other numbers of iterations will lead to points that are arbitrarily close together. Thus a dynamic system with a chaotic attractor is locally unstable yet globally stable: once some sequences have entered the attractor, nearby points diverge from one another but never depart from the attractor.[5]

The term strange attractor was coined by David Ruelle and Floris Takens to describe the attractor resulting from a series of bifurcations of a system describing fluid flow.[6] Strange attractors are often differentiable in a few directions, but some are like a Cantor dust, and therefore not differentiable. Strange attractors may also be found in the presence of noise, where they may be shown to support invariant random probability measures of Sinai–Ruelle–Bowen type.[7]

Examples of strange attractors include the double-scroll attractor, Hénon attractor, Rössler attractor, and Lorenz attractor.


Although the content is different in different climates, the weather for any region fits into a fuzzy toroidal description. A meteorologist (amongst other expertise)[^] gave much to fractal science.
