Not to worry I watched Lyons just before 5pm and anything in that area will be going to Mexico, Floridians have no worries other than higher insurance premiums for an undeserved reputation for big hurricanes(last one here was 1950). By the way we've had heavy rain predictions all week but no rain since Monday, you would think the local mets would occassionally look at the radar.

Yeah, Steve Lyons is never wrong...even Jon Nese is better.

I wish we could bring back John Hope

Hi Jlauderdale:
I read a post where a recon had gone out and found some winds, however, it may have been on Kate
A standard satellite is one produced by NOAA or NHC, nothing specialized
A cold wave is what we used to call cold fronts when I was growing up back in the dark ages. We called them that because in Florida, the cold air just waved bye bye after a few hours or days.
When I speak on the boards, I do it with the language of yesterday. But, my comments mean no harm. I may very well have thought that recon was seeing some upper level storm winds and surface storm winds based on another post I read, if so. and I am wrong, I misspoke. Thanks for listening.

pressure at 1004
      #13561 - Wed Oct 01 2003 06:10 PM

The latest recon found 1004 pressure and winds of 65 miles per hour at flight level. I would bet that this thing is classified at 11, but I thought the same yesterday...

Wow, 90L (Larry) looks to be on the up-swing tonight! Agree that it should go straight to TS status soon, but who knows what the NHC will do. If it continues in the up-swing mode sooner or later they are going to have to do something. I think the bigger question here is where is he going?? The more the system strenghtens the better the chance of him making a tour of the gulf and eventually a pit stop somewhere in Florida. Then again that's just my opinion, I could be terribly wrong.

I see we now have Larry!! Thanks for the info Cyc...

yep
      #13565 - Wed Oct 01 2003 06:46 PM

as alex has already noted.. they're finding more and more evidence. eventually the NHC will have to state the obvious.
kate is looking nice. small hurricane, but a more solid ring CDO and better defined eye becoming apparent. still diving wsw, waters just get warmer south of 30N.

I guess they just couldn't hide the elephant in the middle of the room any longer. People just kept tripping over him. Now, for the next few hours of speculation as to where he will go and end up. It will be interesting to read from you guys how the models initialize on this storm. I don't read meterology well, so I depend on the wise guys around here err uh wisemen. I would like to say though, I would appreciate it if someone could arrange an 8 hour in advanced hurricane warning for Central/North Polk County Florida. I would sure love a long weekend without any loss of life to anyone. Thanks in Advance.

Models showing Larry eventually headed towards Florida, don't know the time frame though as he could sit and spin in the BOC for awhile.

I can comment now that the NHCs toys told them what every weekend meteorologist already suspected. T-number is good:

01/2345 UTC 20.6N 94.0W T2.0/2.0 LARRY

I see the intial models going east but I will wait for a good day or two of model runs to get some sense of where Larry will go. Bastardi might get his hit, only it might be S. FL. Frankly, if I were in the Panhandle, I would pick up plywood this weekend.

Mary K., we here in Polk County will enjoy our Bucs game this Monday. We have Mickey on our side to protect us.

Speedy Larry

Looks like it could be awhile before gets moving. I predict a whole lot of crow on this one as the system isn't moving anywhere fast.

Ok Make that Monday evening ( a threat to make the Buc's game more interesting( and so I don't have to go to work) I could use a three day weekend with pay.I am afraid though, looking at the loops tonight, an optical illusion perhaps, but it looks like the entity(Larry) is rolling to the west off of the frontal weather like one of those birthday streamer-whistles. It will have to wind itself back up before it can change directions and it looks like if one were to take the meterological scissors and snip it, the entity would turn loose and go into Mexico. I have seen this happen a lot of times in other situations.Fortunately the weekend is coming up and there will be plenty of time to observe what happens as opposed to having to wait all day to see what has happened.
