No...Just look at the long range radar loop from Melbourne...

http://www.srh.noaa.gov/radar/loop/DS.p20-r/si.kmlb.shtml

It's very obvious there has been no southward drift. The eye DOES appear to be tightening up...and nearly stationary. If anything, I can detect a POSSIBLE very slow NW drift beginning. But, this is difficult to ascertain since the eye structure continues to evolve.

As for that 3rd rainband coming through the Orlando area (see my previous post)....that was by far the most intense. The rain was torrential for about 15 minutes with very high winds. We are now back to a breezy situation with light drizzle....the sky remains fairly dark and onimous. I have another large tree limb lying on the remains of my fence (damaged heavily by Charley).

The power went out for a few minutes, but has returned.

More posts to come, power permitting.

Power has flickered here a few times ( Coconut Creek , 1 mile southwest of Boca) We shuttered the house except the sliding glass door downstairs. What a view! Trees bending sideways in the sustained wind.

eye appears to be reforming inside the NE side of the 60 mile eye and much tighter.
Norcross just reported HH plane found winds at 116 on the north side. Hinted that it might be upgraded to 3 again.

Reports of a KMart partially ripped open in PSL(Port St Lucie)
Could be a tornado did it!

Just my observations-I am not a met, nor do I pretend to be one.

Miami, Fl conditions [Re: recmod]

Conditions in Miami-Dade have been progressively getting windier and windier throughout the morning and afternoon.

Generally 30-35mph sustained, although 40mph at times. Maximum wind gust in my area was 53mph.

About 0.5" of rain so far. Hasn't rained for hours here.

We are in Oviedo, about ten miles east of Lou in Seminole County. We have had two squalls, during the 11:00am and 2:00pm hours, both brief. At 4:46pm, we have been in bright sunshine with a light breeze for fifteen minutes!

Thanks for all of the very useful posts here. You're helping to keep us sane as we wait!

CNN is already reporting 1.5 million Floridians without power. And the hurricane hasn't even come ashore yet! Wow...

Glad to see the site back up, this place is great.

Frances has moved more west than north from 2AM to 2PM. She's moved .5 degrees north and 1.0 degrees west. Her current position puts her off the coast, between West Palm and Hobe Sobe. Here in Ormond I still haven't seen any rain from this system, though I know it's on the way. Even the wind, which has picked up this afternoon isn't too bad at all either. While it does appear to be stationary I think it's still drifting just a little north of due west. We'll see with the 5pm update exactly how much, if at all, it's moved from 2pm. To me it looks like the eye wall, or what's left of it, is just off the coast of the Martin/Palm Beach County border. Personally I see it drifting onshore just north of West Palm. Also, those deep reds that were surrounding the innercircle not too long ago have dissipated and all I see are oranges, yellows and blues. While it may strengthen a bit because it's stationary I still don't see it getting anywhere to what it once was. Obviously this is just my opinion, as anything can happen. Phil feel free to ask any questions about the waves as I've grown up surfing and have a decent handle on what goes on out there in the ocean.

Update-As of 5pm Frances HAS drifted on a due west track. She moved 0 degrees north and .3 degrees west. More drifting like that and she will make landfall right along the Palm Beach/Martin County border.
