No big deal folks. This
will stir up the
in the water


... A tropical depression continues off the southeastern coast
of the
United States...

... Watches...
a tropical storm watch continues from Edisto Beach South
Carolina to Cape Hatteras North Carolina... including the Pamlico
Sound. A tropical storm watch means that tropical storm conditions
are possible in the watch area during the next 36 hours.

... Storm information...
as of
8 PM the center of Tropical Depression One was
located about 145 miles south southeast of
Charleston South Carolina.
The depression is moving little currently... but is expected to
move toward the northwest near 9 mph later tonight... and a gradual
turn toward the north is expected during the next 24 hours. The
depression could become a tropical storm on Sunday. Maximum sustained
winds are near 30 mph with higher gusts.

... Wind impacts...
winds will begin to increase along the coast late Sunday... and may
reach tropical storm force Sunday evening over the southern areas.
The stronger winds will then spread north across the watch
area Sunday night into Monday. Based on the current forecast... winds
are expected to increase to 35 to 45 mph with higher gusts Sunday
night into Monday. The strongest winds will be along the coast.

... Coastal flooding/storm surge impacts...
the threat for beach erosion and possible coastal flooding will
increase Sunday night and Monday as the winds increase along the
coast. Given the forecast track and intensity... water levels of 2 to
4 feet above normal will be possible along the coast and the western
portion of the
Pamlico Sound.

... Marine information...
seas are currently running 5 to 7 feet over the coastal waters.
As winds increase later Sunday and into Monday... seas will likely
increase to
8 to 12 feet. These large waves will produce very
rough surf. Mariners are urged to remain in port Sunday into Monday.

Yeah, the humidity is way up here too, drippy wet air. Probably worse in Miami than here.

Sheila is back, home for 2 hrs and left at 10:30 pm for Atlanta tonight. Flight was delayed 2 hrs getting in Charlotte.

Yeah, ya'll got alot of moisture down there. The Gulf looks very iffy too. The models are showing TD#2 missing the SUNSHINE? STATE this weekend. Hope so!

Did you see on the MoWire where Kinnakeet Tom reported his wind meter blew out at 102 mph?

We fly out Sat morn and I've been advised not to take the laptop. I hear the missionarys have a computer so I might can sneak a peak at the board and holler at ya'll.

AGAIN we're being slammed with heavy rains and winds here. Trees are toppling like matchsticks because the ground is so wet from days of heavy rain.

The weather center just announced on the news that they have opened water control locks to try to ease the flooding.

And Fishman, as you say, there's another one out there south of us. Looks like the hurricane season is on a roll this year.
