Lets hope it stays offshore .
Here is one of my favorite sites for tracking
Models seem to have a pretty wide range of possibilities.Should be very wet next weekend.Hopefully not too much wind.
If it does make Florida landfall, it is predicted to be a Catagory one storm. Would be nice if it helped to water level in Lake O if that be the case.
Not so much this morning it seems. The latest track has it headed for Jacksonville. Their last direct hit was in the 1890's.
Looks to staying out over water.Might end up as a pretty strong storm.
The NHC discussion now says it will possibly be a major storm briefly.
I am using my Super Power of Telekinesis to keep the major winds offshore, and bring in some much needed rain. It works better if we all think the same thoughts.
Here is a sight I use for tracking, see, my powers are working already!.
http://www.wunderground.com/tropical/ Oooh! Look at the pretty colors.
As of 11AM, the bullseye is temporarily on the great city of Charleston, SC.
I hope Charleston gets spared.Many old historic buildings in that area,and they certainly are not hurricane hardened.Offshore with lots of rain sounds great to me.
Charleston got nailed by Hugo in 1989. Before Andrew and Katrina, it was the costliest hurricane in US history. Those old buildings will still be standing when all the newer stuff is gone.
Myrtle Beach is this morning's target. By tonight, it might be Long Island.
I'm leaving the sprinklers on automatic. If we're really lucky, we might get some rain, but I doubt it.
I was surprised by the amount of rain we got from that last near miss storm. Usually if a hurricane or storm comes close but does not hit directly, it sucks all the rainy weather into it and leaves the surrounding areas drier than usual. If the storm stays on today's projected path, it could leave us a week without rain.
The shift east continues. The track this morning is pointed at the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It's being very Floyd-like (1999).
Time to start planting cactus.
Interesting model track progression.
1.First Gulf of Mexico/Florida 5 days ago
2.South Florida 4 days ago
3.Savannah 2 days ago
5.Then Outer Banks today
6.Miss US altogether??? probably tomorrow
I guess we should be happy but the computers did not do a good job with this one !!
"As the variables change, so does the forecast ..."
This is the same path as Hurricane Floyd in 1999.
Long Island and Rhode Island?? Are you kidding me?!
