Re: Tropical Storm Alpha Forms in the Eastern Caribbean. Hurricane Watches Up For Florida

It is a very safe bet to say that the weather will be better further N

No matter what the specific landfall from Sarasota south to the Keys, the worst winds surge and rain will be on the S side of the circulation (and landfalling eye) And the faster the storm is moving the more the difference between the N and S side of the storm -- so for Wilma it will be good to try and let the eye pass to your S

So best moves are inland and N on the Fl peninsula

As an aside -- lookinf at GFDL with the accelerating storm through the weatern atlantic along the Gulf Stream category 2 winds are carried all the way to a Canadian maritime province landfall
