Too bad the west coast doesn't get them.

Well, put it this way Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and possibly North Carolina won't have to worry about drought conditions as much.



This GFS model doesn't have it leaving Florida completely til Saturday

The news is reporting that some areas of Florida may have 2 feet of rain, that would be devastating.
I do feel for them, here in NJ we've been slammed by Hurricanes Floyd, Irene, Sandy and Ida, and a few floods in between.
Doesn't look good, hope this moves out quicker than they think.

They're now saying it could potentially track south of Tampa, which is good for them. Wherever it hits though, it's looking bad.

All of Zone A is under a mandatory evacuation order. That generally includes islands and coastal areas such as Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel, Matlacha and Bonita Beach. A part of Zone B south of Veterans Parkway in Cape Coral is also under mandatory evacuation.

Great. I remember a few years ago there was only a Cat 1 off the coast of SC. It just sat there spinning dumping rain. Basically flooded everything. I hope this isn’t another repeat, coffins popping out of the ground was kinda creepy.

Edit: This totally sucks for the folks in FL. Been flooded with 30” of salt water a couple times my self from the storm surge. Turds floating down stairs with blown out walls was Not fun at all.

Thought the same thing the Congaree River flooded South Cackalack lowlands pretty well IIRC.

FWIW Jagstorm? had a vivid dream about flooding in a "triangle" state just a few days ago, they even mentioned South Carolina as a possibility.

Here's the official NHC forecast a little south of Tampa but 3-4 category hurricane at landfall, along with potentially stalling

Climate Change kept the Atlantic tropics relatively hurricane-free this year.

Something we can be thankful for. 🙏

Florida and Georgia both aren't in drought conditions at all, hopefully, get all reservoirs and lakes up to full pool.

Rains like these in the fall usually mean we will have a mild winter and a beautiful early spring. I can get behind that forecast.

The weather people keep trying to make these Hurricanes follow "worst case scenarios" with the tracks, as long as they can.

But they never go back after it's over with and say, "Here's what we projected for _____, and here's the actual track ______took."

I suppose so, even the US has had some droughts and fires, and of course the UK Europe heatwave, China Pakistan flooding, etc. Still, can it be shown as statistically proven, or are we just all collectively hyper-aware?

I was not worried till this mornings update and it is a worst case. It is going to hit high CAT3/low CAT4 before hitting the West Coast of FL. It is then supposed to hang for 24 hours. This will be devastating. I live directly in the path as it is right now and have family who live directly on the beach in St Pete. They are already evac'd.

You will see some very bad coastal issues when this thing hits.

Water. Check. Beer. Check.Gas Grill.check. Ammo for looters. Check....we are all good here in Florida.

Yes, hyper aware...with the digital age we can hear and see all the disasters everywhere, up close and personal.

I only hope that its just a bad storm and not the "storm of the century" as being reported and hyped in the news.

My father is battoning down the hatches as we speak.

I hope to get the all clear from him after this all blows over.

I hope his area isn't hit too hard.
