Yesterday I posted an announcement about this odd press release:
Today, in a strange twist of timing, NOAA makes this press release about their hurricane announcement:
Contact: Chris Vaccaro
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
202-482-6090 May 19, 2010
NOAA’s Atlantic hurricane outlook postponed
NOAA’s Atlantic hurricane outlook announcement originally scheduled for tomorrow is now scheduled to take place next Thursday in Washington, D.C.
A new media advisory with full details will be issued shortly.

Hmmm. Makes me wonder if the numbers the chimp came up with were the same as what NOAA came up with. NOAA sent this via email, which I’ve verified…
Received: from mmp3.nems.noaa.gov ([22.214.171.124])
…but it hasn’t shown up in the press release archive yet. It will be interesting to see what they come up with in the delayed release and what the explanation will be (if any) on why the delay occurred.
