Fay Over Lake Okeechobee
      Tue Aug 19 2008 06:59 AM

1PM Update


Fay's very good mid level organization combined with the wet areas of southern Florida and Lake Okeechobee have actually seen the pressure drop down to 986 mb, and windspeeds increase to 65MPH.

Wind gusts near hurricane force were reported at Moore Haven, FL (Western side of Lake Okeechobee), see Special Weather Statements



11AM Update
Fay is maintaining a rather good structure even over land, if/when it reemerges into the Atlantic it could once again strengthen, so those in Northern/Florida and Georgia may want to be aware of that. Irene of 1999 was a similar setup. Read Ed's Met Blog below for more information.





Original Update
It looks like Fay did not strengthen enough overnight and has made landfall in southwest Florida as a Tropical Storm. It will be rainy and breezy today throughout much of the southern half of Florida, also many short lived weaker tornadoes are possible (and are happening) as the outer bands of Fay move through.

We have a few discussion threads going on Fay, if you would like to discuss Fay's possible impact on Florida, check out here, if you want to let people what you think, or have a gut feeling, or want to shoot the breeze on Fay do that in the Fay forecast Lounge Want to let us know about conditions in your area, any closings, notices, or evacuations, let pass it along in this area. This is done to attempt more order during the flood of information (both good and bad) that will come over the next few days. The main comments are usually for discussion of what the storm is doing now, or will likely be short term.

Elsewhere in the tropics a wave in the central Atlantic (94L) may become a depression in the next few days.


Please pay attention to local media and officials in your area as the storm approaches. As of 2PM Fay is still a Tropical Storm. For state information, check out the local NWS advisories on the top of the main page and Floridadisaster.org.
