Gert gets going, Stronger.

While winds are up too 100mph, it is moving NE and away from CONUS.  The other systems are looking for an energy source and a favorable field for development.  In lieu of all that,  these other systems are moving west but will eventfully find their place following Gert.  By the way Gert is the place  for systems to go because of lowest pressure.  More on that later.
