Here in Gainesville, we didn't see many effects at all from Charley. There was some dry air that infused from the west, if I remember correctly, and that sort of protected us. We definitely got hit pretty badly by Francis and Jeanne, even though we only experienced winds of 60-70 mph with some stronger gusts. Our local tv forecasters have implied it could be bad for us if the track is more to the north, like toward Tampa, but they haven't gone into detail yet. Does anyone think it could be worse than Francis and Jeanne, for this part of the state? Or even as bad as those storms were? I realize it depends on the size of the windfield and how quickly it is moving. Both the other storms took a long time to pass through. They were both only about Cat 1 or 2 at landfall, right?
