Yea allan it looks that way but theres really no deep convection near the center so in reality this is still cold core but the transition to a sun-tropical storm has been under way and avisories should begin at 11am if the present trend continues.Thats if.

Well, we talked a whole lot about African Dust last year... Morning visible shows 90L is sucking up one heck of a lot of smoke from across the Florida Penninsula...Pretty amazing view actually.





This morning the sky is blue in New Smyrna Beach, and there is a strong smell of smoke for the second day in a row.

Andrea does look a little better organized (at least to the newbie I am), in particular in the west side of it, but the core does not seem to have an organized eye. Is my observation correct? If yes, what does this mean?

(Pam - do you have as much smoke in Port Orange as we do here?)

If the models are correct it could be great news for those people living in FL and GA that have been fighting wild fires. Even better news if some how it can get in the GOM and merge with a frontal boundary and bring the central gulfcoast some rain

The models certainly don't agree with each other. They are all over the board.

The last time we had a named storm in May was back in 1981.It was Arlene and it had a short life(May 6-9).So we are seeing something rare indeed.We can only hope it will help with the fires.Right now of course it is making them worse with all wind and little or no rain.This is just to early for all this.
p.s. The smoke and smell were bad here in Ft Laud. last night and they are calling for the same this evening.

I live on the coast, but work in Orlando, and the smoke inland is just horrible. Hopefully some of the rain that's spinning offshore will get in and start to do it's thing.

I am not sure this is in the making. The rotation would bring the winds from Andrea over land before it gets to the Florida coast, so this just might be - in my totally un-informed wild guess - a dry event

Can the more knowledgable forumites share their opinion with us: will Florida finally get some good rain?

Re: It's trying, it really is.... [Re: AdrianInFlorida]
      #74671 - Wed May 09 2007 10:27 AM

Thankfully the smoke in coastal sections of Spring Hill isn't like it was yesterday morning. The wind has shifted and is pushing the smoke to inland counties (sorry guys).

They do have rain chances going up to 40% by Friday and keeping around 30% chance in the forecast for the next 7 days. Slowly we are moving toward our rainy season.

Dewpoints have risen nearly 20° since yesterday morning here an indication that the atmosphere is working up toward good things we hope, esp. for northern Fla. and southern Georgia

interesting obs on smoke and the storm [Re: ChessieStorm]
      #74672 - Wed May 09 2007 10:38 AM

very interesting, wondering if the smoke did or does have any effect on the development

can she get ash from the georgia fire in her circulation and how different would that be than african dust

interesting, thanks for mentioning it here

we will have to watch andrea and see
