      #62390 - Sun Oct 23 2005 06:47 PM

I am here in East Polk County just now starting to get some of the "bands"

Funny thing, with Charley last year as his bands came across the pressure in my head was horrible to the point to where nothing would take it away. In the past 20 mins the same thing has happened again. Of course WOW - I just looked out tyhe window an amazing lightening right now!! HOLY COW, that was incredible. Anyway,....there is a bad system heading my way.

For anyone in this - good luck - I know I am a little worried right now with the tornados "coming" at night. I don't like that one bit.

My ex is with the S.O. and as he gets any B.O.L.Os for tornados he will wake me so we can go in to safety.

I hope to hear that eveyrone is safe tomorrow.

Earliest guess on radar fixes suggests that Wilma may actually be moving more ENE than NE proper ...
in fact, that may be generous because it looks essentially east on this channel:

...Obviously, this may be a range related...

Palm Beach EOC just on T.V. They are a bit worried at the southeast end of the lake in Palm Beach County about the dike. Once the storm passes the lake to the NE they expect the NW winds to raise the lake 3 to 5 feet at the southeast end.

It's the extraordinary SRH - Storm Relative Halicity - that is in the area associated with that boundary... Winds across the horizontal depth of the surface trough are backing S to N, from the SSE to the ENE... Compounding, you still have to deal with the conservation of angular momentum by land falling hurricanes, and the local spin ups... Basically what you got there are over-lapping mechanics for twisters... Could be an interesting night; could almost envision tornado swarms...

Satellite still shows NE .. There maybe wobbles from time to time or stair stepping. Also keep in mind the radar is deceiving.

We just had our first squalls come in. Not too gusty yet, but some good hard rain and two tornado warnings - one in Sarasota county and one in Hardee county.

still looks like a nasty cell on the turnpike area...
(edit: appears this cell is heading north along that county line..)

warning text
here's a better site that may help show locations on a map....
http://www.srh.noaa.gov/ridge/mlb_N0Z_lp.shtml

NOTE* tune to local NWS radio or local TV media for latest...
cuz the internet may not always be up to date!!!

Also was looking at that "violent waterspout" in vis shots... did see the cell had some overshooting to its cloud tops... appears it will stay offshore... it's between radars now and starting to show up on tampa nexrad.

Heavy rain and lightening has begun in st. pete. I too am concerned about tornados at night, at least in Oklahoma and Texas there are sirens..lol...Good luck to all, thanks for important information.

She ought to start gaining some latitude pretty soon if she's gonna make Napels... I'm still registering an almost due E motion on: http://www.erh.noaa.gov/radar/loop/DS.p20-r/si.kbyx.shtml

radar beams are not that accurate that far out.... where eye is now... would be shooting up 25ft and higher... so low "surface center" could be just little off.... expect a wobble all night.... shear to me is not all that bad... she's not feeling to much of effect from the second cold front.... yet!

There has been a fairly significant improvement in the satellite presentation of Wilma in the last couple of hours. The eye is showing up much better on the most recent image (2315Z) and there is deepening convection around the center. On the long-range Key West radar, the eye looks to be a little irregularly shaped, but that may be an artifact since the west eyewall is just barely in radar range.
