SEVERAL HOURS AGO...THE HURRICANE HUNTERS AGAIN MEASURED FLIGHT-LEVEL WINDS OF CLOSE TO 50 KT...BUT IN A BAND THAT WAS EVEN FARTHER FROM THE CENTER THAN IN THE EARLIER PASS. SATELLITE IMAGES SHOW THAT THE BANDS OF HEAVIER SHOWERS HAVE BECOME DISPLACED FARTHER EAST AND NORTHEAST OF THE CENTER THAN THEY WERE THIS MORNING. INDEED...THE SYSTEM HAS SOMEWHAT OF A SUBTROPICAL APPEARANCE AT THE MOMENT. BECAUSE OF THE DIVERGENCE IN MODEL GUIDANCE...THE OFFICIAL FORECAST TRACK IS A LITTLE SLOWER THAN THE PREVIOUS ONE. HOWEVER SINCE THE STRONGEST WINDS ARE IN BANDS AS MUCH AS 200 N MI EAST OF THE CENTER WHICH COULD REACH THE COAST WELL IN ADVANCE OF THE CENTER...A TROPICAL STORM WATCH IS BEING ISSUED FOR A PORTION OF THE FLORIDA GULF COAST ON THIS ADVISORY.
It appears that a "Watch" is necessary for the Steinhatchee area of Florida simply because of the disassociated bands that contain the strongest winds. Meanwhile what is left of Alberto seems to be hanging in the Gulf.
