It does seem the next couple of days with Dean are pretty cut & dry...straight into Mexico...even though it's never over till it's over this outcome seems certain.
I know alot of diehards elsewhere who are rather dissapointed that most of the anticipation in final destination speculation is gone for them now.
Dean is still the main player but it appears CMC is not the only model in closing off a low from the wave East of the Bahamas. The 10:30 TWO mentioned conditions becoming more favorable for some slow development as well. Time for a "Bear Watch" it seems.
Continuning some of the talk about the winds caused over Fl by the pressure gradient...they certainly were strong & enjoyable early this morning..although I don't know what's worse...just the hot air or the wind whipping it around like a hot fan by afternoon.
Anxiously awaiting the end of hurricane season & relief from the heat.

I do beleave that after watching the satalite images of Hurricane Dean and then watching the Sataline images of Miami and the Florida Keys that Dean is definatly responsible for the cooler day we have had hear, as well as the stormy weather. It also appears that as Dean spins counter clockwise, his longest band reaches the tip of South Florida. Please correct me if I am wrong.

I guess in a way you could say Dean was responsible for your weather today but not in the way I think you're getting at.
We have strong Easterly winds now. Also a high pressure ridge has built in..Dean is low pressure...put Fl in the middle. This causes a pressure gradient & increased winds.
If you go to the National Weather Service you can type in your zip code or city name & get a very thorough forecast not only for your immediate area but usually a discussion on features such as waves, troughs, etc...that may be moving in or developing offshore for example that may impact your area for the week.
I have found it very useful not only for my local forecast or when traveling but I also read Ruskin & Melbournes discussions when we have a tropical threat as well. Always good to hear another opinion.

Post Linkage Problem [Re: Random Chaos]
      #77238 - Mon Aug 20 2007 12:21 AM

There is a known problem with post-linkage that we have not yet resolved. The corruption problem happens when a Moderator deletes/moves a post. The move goes okay, but the Forum that the post was moved from will still show it as the 'latest post' - even though it is no longer there. When you click on the post (in the latest post area) it sends you off to the Forum that the post was moved to.

Use the Site Usage Forum to report problems - DO NOT send Mod Alerts for system errors - the Moderators cannot correct this type of error. Until the problem is resolved, using the 'latest post' link on the Forum Listing page may not take you to the correct Forum.
