Fay Floods North Florida
      Thu Aug 21 2008 09:13 AM

1 PM 23 August Update
Tropical Storm Fay, now located near Panama City, FL, is producing torrential rains across southwest Georgia and the Florida Big Bend region this afternoon, with flood warnings up covering an estimated 400,000 people across the region. Rainfall rates of 4-6"/hr are common within its highly efficient rainfall bands, producing running storm total accumulations over 16" in Monticello, FL as of noon today. This activity will slowly slide westward with time, impacting Tallahassee and points further west. As it was in Jacksonville and Melbourne, this is a high impact dangerous flooding situation and travel is not recommended across the region. Stay tuned to your local NWS office, the NHC, and local emergency management agencies for all of the latest, including road closures and evacuations.

9PM 21 August Update
Fay has moved inland, and is still moving generally westward very very slowly, dumping flooding rains on central Florida, it will likely last most of Tomorrow as well for some areas in Central Florida. The center still is over northern Volusia and Flagler Counties.

In other news, a new wave in the east Atlantic, (95L) is also being watched, along with 94L, which will enter a better area for development soon. So there will be more tropical weather to watch after Fay.



Forecast Lounges for Fay, 94l and 95L

Original Update
Tropical Storm Fay remains offshore this morning, stationary, pumping in the rain and wind to East Central Florida.

Incredible amounts of rain in Brevard, steady winds along the coast in Volusia, with more rain coming.

Strength wise it looks like Fay is holding steady at 60MPH/994mb because of the large size of the center, it is unlikely it will gain much if any strength. It will eventually move generally westward. On satellite, Fay looks a bit ragged, but the big story with Fay is the incredible amounts of rainfall.

Stay dry!

We have a few discussion threads going on Fay, if you would like to discuss Fay's possible impact on Florida, check out here, if you want to let people what you think, or have a gut feeling, or want to shoot the breeze on Fay do that in the Fay forecast Lounge Want to let us know about conditions in your area, any closings, notices, or evacuations, let pass it along in this area. This is done to attempt more order during the flood of information (both good and bad) that will come over the next few days. The main comments are usually for discussion of what the storm is doing now, or will likely be short term.

Elsewhere in the tropics a wave in the central Atlantic (94L) may become a depression in the next few days, but it has become less likely.


Please pay attention to local media and officials in your area as the storm approaches. As of 2PM Fay is still a Tropical Storm. For state information, check out the local NWS advisories on the top of the main page and Floridadisaster.org.
