Rain is Here
09:30 PM EST - 19 March 2001

More discussions on the current storm events:
Mike Anderson's East Coast Tropical Weather Center and Gary Gray's Millennium Weather

9PM Update:

So far the weather hasn't been too severe, except in a few small areas. (South Florida/Broward and some in Volusia County) The wind along the coast north of Cape Canveral is pretty high, though, and Gale warnings are up for those areas. I expect the worst weather to be along the coast in the northeastern sections of Florida. The rain will continue off and on through tomorrow, and severe activity will be very spotty.

7PM Update:

The rainstorm is making it fairy windy along the coast tonight. As this moves offshore we'll get more rain and probably some severe storms overnight as well as a lot of wind along the coast due to pressure gradients. Not a hurricane, but potentially nasty Mmarch weather.

Finally, we are getting some decent rainfall after a long dry spell. This is going to cause a good bit of mess along the coast though when the winds pick up a bit, and possibly more problems for folks to the north, but we are enjoying it after all the recent fires.

Not Too Much in South Brevard Either (#1)

The recent storm has not brought too much rain to the Palm Bay area, but to Satellite Beach northward 2+ inches was the rule. We'll take what we get. Could be some severe weather this afternoon also. Storm should crank up the coast of the mid-atlantic into the NE wednesday nite. If the NOGAPS verifies, could be interesting in the big cities Philly/NYC/BOS, as this model shows such a borderline rain/snow event, with rain turning to snow before ending even along the coast. Dew points are real low there, so evaporational cooling may come into play. Heavy wet snow isn't out of the question there. Cheers!!

Looks, and I say again, Looks like we have some heavy rain coming for late thurs/fri, and then again on Monday for the Florida peninsula. Trough setting up with one, and perhaps a second trailing low pressure system expected to develop in the GOM and head NE/ENE respectively. Activity ahead of each of these systems looks to bring heavy rains (at least 1 - 3 inches) of rain to a large portion of FL/GA/SC during the next few days. I know we could use it, but I'll believe when I see it (although the Sat ix SHow it coming from the west). We'll see. Cheers!!
