Hurricane watches now up for east central Florida. Irene continues to remain a cat 1 hurricane. South Florida will get a lot of rain today and some very gusty winds. Central Florida should start getting heavy rain and wind later on today and through Saturday. Hopefully Irene will not strengthen over the next 6 hours before making a landfall somewhere in southwest Florida. Watch out for tornados and flooding.

It really looks like this storm is moving east by looking at the radar. Also, the latest recon report has the storm a half a degree to the east and only 1/10 of a degree to the north from the 8 am update. I was looking forward to a fun day (some heavy, but not to heavy, wind and a lot of rain) tomorrow, but it's looking more and more like its not going to give us in Orlando much at all.
Anyone have anythought on the jog to the east?
