Jose is projected to head out into the middle of the Atlantic and drastically weaken.


Apparently, the eye wall replacement cycle doubled the size of the eye, as a result, the area experiencing peak winds is now the width of the state of Florida.

If you are in a mandated evacuation zone, evacuate.


This storm is no time to be a hero....or to plan a hurricane party.
Much of Florida is way too close to sea level....and appears to be headed for being on the evil right side of the storm.


If you are in a mandated evacuation zone, evacuate. These zones are created for a reason, and Irma is not a storm to be toyed with.

Irma will be tracking north-northwest along the Florida peninsula. The most recent consensus of models is that this track will run inland along the peninsula from south to north, which would keep the East Coast in the more dangerous right-hand side of the hurricane.

Impacts will extend along the length of the Florida peninsula. There are no recent precedents for Irma’s expected north-northwest track. The best analog would be Hurricane Cleo (1964), which took a similar NNW track along the eastern peninsula. Cleo was a much weaker storm than Irma, though, weakening from a Cat 2 at landfall near Miami to a tropical storm near Savannah, GA. Hurricane Donna (1960) traveled over land from the SW to NE sides of the peninsula; Donna was a Cat 4 near Marathon and still a Cat 1 at Daytona Beach.

I wouldn't advise wasting cellphone batteries. Power might go out once the winds pick up. Best to keep all your stuff charged up now .
There's probably some webcams you can look at

HWRF/NHC have it going right up to the middle/west now... Great.

In other news, I-75 is getting slow (15-30mph) around Tampa, but it's not standing still like Wednesday. I'd say it's still better than most highways since there are no lights. Rest stops are pretty crowded.

M = Major Hurricane
H = Hurricane
D = Tropical Depression

The storm surge prediction has increased as well. 6-12 ft




There is the danger of life-threatening storm surge inundation in
southern Florida and the Florida Keys during the next 36 hours,
where a Storm Surge Warning is in effect. In particular, the threat
of significant storm surge flooding along the southwest coast of
Florida has increased, and 6 to 12 feet of inundation above ground
level is possible in this area. This is a life-threatening
situation. Everyone in these areas should take all actions to
protect life and property from rising water and follow evacuation
instructions from local officials.

The track will continue to wobble off its predicted course. Anywhere in the Cone can be where it goes. Try not to rely on the Center of the track . It's so wide that pretty much all of Florida is at risk.

Also and this isn't mean to cause any fear, the Everglades have water and can help strengthen it. Amy warm water is fuel. I don't know about steering it though.

Well this certainly took the news about Harvey away . I just googled the death toll... 70. Not sure if that's all for Houston re that mayor not evacuating. Traffic flow in Irma seems ok for now. I bet a lot will be having a last minute decision to leave tonight and tomorrow though. That's if there's gas

I like CNN...but...they now have a banner up saying this will be a "nuclear" hurricane.......any minute now we should start to see the mocking ridicule from the right...c'mon CNN, don't feed the "animals" of the right-wing what they want. I'm surprised that "little fingers" Donnie hasn't tweeted this out, yet.....

I think the governor coined that phrase. Or was it the mayor?


thanks for the info, the governor has been on nationwide TV this morning for so long, I switched channels, a few minutes later I went out for a few smokes with my coffee, came back in about a 1/2 hour later, and he was still on TV talking about it, maybe that's why I didn't hear him call it that....jesus people, is there ANYONE IN FLORIDA or the entire nation that HASN'T gotten the message?...hey, how about the 8+ magnitude earthquake that struck Mexico?....I heard one 15 second snippet about it....
