Re: Ouch

Its over about the turn. I mean nothing to really talk about on that except for the Tampa people or maybe Orlando. She will bend to the north but like I said,, BEND. If she does continue on her current path for the next 3-4 hrs then she might make it into the gulf thru Tampa- just north of Clearwater. Thing is,,will she be 70mph or still a hurricane by the time she would enter the gulf????? Well if she does, she will gain some strength, although not much but enough to change TS warnings to Hurricane warnings up to Apolachiacola. As off 11pm I would of had the Hurricane watches changed to warnings from Tampabay N to Cedar key cause they could get winds of hurricane force sustained for 2-6hrs. The warnings for places like Broward county we KNEW wont get sustained 74mph or more but they were issued anyways. So why not the west coast where also the upper air data, water vapor loop and model trends with the GFDL and Ships showing winds along the west coast of florida in the mentioned area of 65kts or more........................
