Sure, just give me the latitude and longitude of the two points. Or give me the cities, I have a large table of lat/longs.

>>> what can we here in Tallahasse expect to see from Ivan if anything.

My best guess as to how to visually interpret this (maybe Skeetobite can spin some more magic) would be to look at this NHC graphic. Then extrapolate as to where it will go inland (so far, that's Mobile). Then figure how close you are to the TS winds...unfortunately I don't have a US map handy, but I believe Tallahassee is just outside the cone...you SHOULD be fine windwise. However, those down by the coast will probably be seeing small surge and huge (10'+) waves Plus, any feeder bands that pass overhead may have twisters...so be on guard...




Will be creating first Ivan wind field map with 11pm advisory, unless popular demand is that I use 5pm (#50) out of urgency.

It doesn't auto refresh, and not only is the time zone different, the clock on the camera/computer is off, looks like it is 15 minutes fast and CST or 45 minutes slow and CDT. But it is definitely updating.

You known the Halloween storm I think of 1991 or something had like 100 foot waves, that was the storm in the Perfect Storm. I didn't even know about it at the time, but we did have some snow from it. I like blizzards better than hurricanes that's why I don't live in Florida, I bet a lot people would agree with me on that.

Keith, I bet about 10 million people would like to trade places with us right now, but dude, winter SUCKS!

I have lived in the Tampa area for 17 years and never been so uneasy during the hurricane season. Everyone is stressed from watching the weather every weekend and we have lost a lot of productivity and business in the services industry. I still prefer it to the cold..I just have to ride this season out.

BTW...East of Tampa it is breezy, but dry.

I'm here in Tallahassee. And I'd love for you to make a street level from 5pm and 11pm. Am I asking too much?

Keith you didn't know about the storm? I was living in Clinton CT at the time and the road to my condo was flooded for days. I didn't get the waves being on the sound and in a bay. That ship in gulf has some poor timing, to be out there now. Hope they stay safe

I agree with phil, went through Frances here in Brevard. The worst part is after the storm. No power for weeks, No gas, No food. It gets boring really fast!!! FEMA has done a great job here in Brevard and Indian River county, hats off to them. If your in Ivans path, leave for about a month or more.

It looks like it is nearly stationary for the last hour or 3 frames. The eye has constricted a bit

Keith would have been three years old at the time...I don't recall any snow, but I do remember one Hallowe'en Party that I hosted had only about half the guests show up due to the weather...that was one helluva storm...

Yeah many are in hot,dark houses all sweaty subsisting on dry icky storm food and no immediate connection to a reliable news source. Those with power in Brevard or wherever try to reach to those without..............what a difference a hot cup of coffee and a meal can make.

If you look at this Bouy link:
http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.php?station=42003
26.01 N 85.91 W (2600'32"N 8554'50"W)


And where the storm is now:
http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/PS/TROP/DATA/RT/float-wv-loop.html
LATITUDE 24.7 NORTH... LONGITUDE 87.0 WEST

I can see how NHC comes to this statement:
"IVAN IS A LARGE HURRICANE. HURRICANE FORCE WINDS EXTEND OUTWARD UP
TO 105 MILES FROM THE CENTER...AND TROPICAL STORM FORCE WINDS
EXTEND OUTWARD UP TO 260 MILES."
