Original Update Hurricane Dennis, weakinging ever so slightly is moving rather quickly over Cuba, and is nearing Havana. The ridge north of Central Florida has held, which keeps the forecast track in check as is.
Central Florida will see winds tomorrow, but not quite tropical storm force, while the west coast of Florida will see tropical storm force winds. In fact, tropical storm watches are up along a lot of the west coast just for this reason. The Lower Keys may see hurricane force winds tonight and tomorrow.
Beyond that, the western Florida panhandle and northern Gulf coast -- Apalachicola west toward New Orleans -- is the real focus area, with the most likely path taking it near Pensacola as the landfall point. This would put it and points east in the worst part of the storm. Hurricane watches are now up for most of the aforementioned areas because of Dennis. This means everyone in the watch area needs to be prepared for the storm. Landfall is still forecast for sometime on Sunday.
I'm looking for good Dennis related links to place on the front page; this includes good images, radar, satellite, streaming audio,video, emergency information, etc. Reply and let us know.
Site Note News talkbacks are now in lockdown mode, which means that unregistered users cannot reply.
You can still post in the other forums besides talkbacks. This enables us to moderate a lot better. I hate doing this, but I can see obvious signs of "storm stress" on a few individuals. We'll make it open again as soon as it calms down.
