  • Latest on Isaac

    Hi everyone

    Still keeping a close eye on Isaac– and now we have a new Depression in the Atlantic that will likely become Joyce!  Unlike Isaac, we won’t have to worry about Joyce as it appears this system won’t get close to the U.S in the days ahead.

    So here’s the latest on Isaac…

    Starting to get a little more organized, and this is a big storm!  Winds/rain extending over 200 miles from the “core” of this storm.

    Here’s the path as of the 11am advisory (the new track comes out at 5pm).  All of the areas inside the “cone” need to pay very close attention to the upcoming forecasts from the NHC.

    And one of our reliable computer forecast models is showing a too close for comfort scenario for the West Coast of Florida heading into next week.  Waters are incredibly warm in the Gulf, and if winds are light, it won’t take much to strengthen this storm.

    Even if we don’t have a direct landfall,  winds, heavy rain (possible flooding) and the risk of tornadoes will accompany a storm like this…

    And with the RNC next week, organizers are keeping close tabs on Isaac’s progress.  Tampa is the number one most vulnerable city in terms of flooding and storm surge from a landfalling hurricane:

    That’s all for now!  An update tomorrow, and updates by the minute on twitter! (@janicedeanfox)

You are AFRAID, did I hear that right AFRAID of the westward shift in Isaac. For those of us living in the Panama City, Destin area then a hurricane is all right with you? New Orleans has had 7 years and billions of dollars to fix their levies. Citizens of New Orleans are not the only people living of the Gulf coast.

:/ Well, I feel I should apologize for apparently (weather?) spamming a weather blog. I was just trying to offer some additional information for those who were curious. I assure you that spamming was the last of my intentions, and I certainly won't do it in the future. Again, sorry for doing so.

Pretty day here in Richmond. This morning was the first day in a long time I didn't need the AC in the car. Wish it stayed this way all year

Hey regular bloggers. Don't forget that hurricanes bring all kinds of people to the blog. However, the wording of some of the comments sounds very familiar. It may be one of the many personalities of you-know-who. They may have stopped their meds again. Hopefully things will quiet down. Have a great afternoon/evening, everyone! Margie

For anyone hungry for a little more info, here's a good site with a smorgasbord of information (that updates automatically) on active tropical storms (in this case, Isaac and Joyce): http://spaghettimodels.com/ (so named for the computer models used to help forecast track projectories). In other news, alternatively wet and dry in northern Arizona. A fair few are complaining, but I don't mind the wet monsoon at all!

Right now in New Hampshire it's mid-80s and clear. I love summer! Sometimes the strong hurricanes work their way all the way up here, and although they're only tropical depressions by then, I still hate them, so hoping this one fizzles over Cuba or something.

JD, watching you closely. Looks like Isaac's path may come for a visit across my neck of the woods. He could be especially dangerous after he gets into the warm Gulf. Hope the convention isn't a washout...may not be with a Cat 1. It could make life a little more miserable for protesters...all-in-all, not a bad thing. Lovely day in MySouth...90 w/low humidity. So rare for August! I spent 2 hours in the dentist's chair today. I cannot feel the right side of my face. :( TTFN! Gwen

A train also derailed here in Berlin this week, injuring five. It was a commuter train. I found some photos on an English-language site: whas11 (dot) com. Our high today is 78 degrees Fahrenheit, and it is clear, but thunderstorms expected Friday.

Has anyone considered the idea that this storm/hurricane could work in favor of the RNC? The only demonstrators who will be out there will be hardcore and need close watching. The others are there for other stupid reasons. I hope the wind blows them into the next block.

Great, now we have another know-it-all on the blog. I guess all the real hurricane experts are wrong then. This is the kind of ignorance that gets people killed in hurricanes. Listen to the real experts everyone and be prepared. Hey to all the regular bloggers out there. I hope everyone has a great day. The weather here is warming up but after all, it is August. We've gotten down into the 50's at night and that is nice. Upper 80's for highs today. Take care, everyone. Margie
