Clyde W., how would you describe the earlier weather. I life near UCF. Actually near Waterford Lakes.

Please keep posting what you observe! :-)

I'm out by UCF, moderate rain for the last 30 minutes, breezy--but calling it windy would be pushing it. Will report in again as things deteriorate.

Frances near landfall [Re: MikeC]
      #24068 - Sat Sep 04 2004 06:41 PM

Not really much to add on the Frances front. Landfall looks like it should come sometime in the wee morning hours, probably at or very close to the current intensity of 105mph and just a bit north of West Palm Beach. Satellite representation has gotten a bit better, but not strikingly so.

The differences between the NHC and HPC from two days ago are starting to play out in terms of what the storm does after landfall. NHC, going off of the models, had been calling for a path over land; HPC, going off of actual analysis and understanding the errors in what the models were analyzing, called for a more westerly path that would skirt almost the entire Fl. panhandle. Now, the NHC has shifted towards that as well. (And yes, I've canceled plans to chase Frances in the panhandle.)

In any event, rainfall amounts are going to be torrential with this storm - though TWC is a bit out to lunch in suggesting flooding rains in Maine with this one by Wednesday. It'll still be near north Florida on Tuesday.

Ivan continues to get better organized, with an eye-type feature appearing earlier today. I threw out a path over Hispaniola yesterday to some friends, and that may well play out in five days. It's one to watch by the middle of the week as it approaches the islands. They're sending a G-IV out there on Monday to sample the environment, even before an actual recon gets out there, which I think is a very good thing.

More if conditions warrant...otherwise, it's time to hunker down and watch the storm as it crosses the state.

Anybody have reports from Indian River County? Looks like the worst is heading in there over the next few hours.

Just ran out and checked out a neighbors house while they are evacuated. The wind is getting stronger here (central Brevard) and the rain is picking up. I saw a few small trees blown over but not too much else. Have heard of some damage though to mobile homes and frame buildings. The lights are really starting to flicker so I don't think the power will be on much longer. While outside we the bright "transformer flash" from somewhere not too far. The news just said 2 million w/o power...the weather radio alarm just went off...tornado warning. Time to duck....

radar presentation showing hints of wobble effect in play during the most recent run of frames.... right now its slightly elongated SW to NE... as it continues to rotate over time the NE section of the eye wall should pivot and be relatively close to land (ft pierce) as it continues to move to the WNW or ~ 275-280 degrees.... its really looking good right now on radar... expect the winds to be increased at 11 IMO
