ZCZC MIATWOAT ALL TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM Special Tropical Weather Outlook NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL 200 PM EDT Sat May 16 2020 For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico: Special Tropical Weather Outlook issued to discuss the potential for tropical or subtropical development off the east coast of Florida. 1. Data from the Air Force Hurricane Hunters and satellite images indicate that the low pressure system located just off the coast of east-central Florida has become better defined today. In addition, the associated showers and thunderstorms continue to gradually organize. If these trends continues, advisories will likely be initiated on this system as a tropical or subtropical depression later today. Later in the weekend and early next week, the system is expected to move generally northeastward over the western Atlantic near or east of the Carolinas. The system will continue to bring gusty winds and locally heavy rains across portions of east-central Florida through tonight. Interests near the North Carolina coast should closely monitor the progress of this system, as it could produce gusty winds and heavy rains there on Monday, and a tropical storm watch will likely be issued for that area later today. In addition, hazardous marine conditions will spread northward during the next few days, likely causing dangerous surf and rip currents along much of the southeast and mid-Atlantic coasts of the U.S. See products from your local National Weather Service office for more details. Another Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate the system this evening. The next Special Tropical Weather Outlook on this system will be issued by 9 PM EDT today, or earlier if needed. * Formation chance through 48 hours...high...near 100 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...high...near 100 percent.

Satellite data and surface observations indicate that the trough of low pressure located over the Straits of Florida has generally changed little today. This system continues to produce a large area of disorganized shower activity and gusty winds across the Florida Keys, portions of southeast Florida, and the northwestern Bahamas.

Later in the weekend and early next week, the system is expected to move generally northeastward over the western Atlantic. Regardless of development, the disturbance will continue to bring heavy rainfall and wind gusts to tropical-storm-force across portions of the Florida Keys, southeast Florida and the Bahamas through Saturday. In addition, hazardous marine conditions are expected along the Florida east coast and in the Bahamas where Gale Warnings are in effect. Dangerous surf conditions and rip currents are possible along portions of the southeast U.S. coast this weekend and early next week. See products from your local weather office and High Seas Forecasts for more details. An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate the disturbance tomorrow morning, if necessary. The next Special Tropical Weather Outlook on this system will be issued by 9 PM EDT tonight, or earlier, if necessary. * Formation chance through 48 hours...high...80 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent.

Today has been gray all day with little rain that is all going to change tonight as the storm moves closer.
We are expecting between 4-6 inches of rain which is the main threat of this storm. I have to work in the morning and I'm hoping that if anything severe moves in it will be in the afternoon.

Moisture is moving in, and there is low pressure sitting in the gulf.
We are expecting up to five inches of rain by Saturday. Severe weather is possible Thursday. Hopefully after I get off work.
Friday night veteran storm chasers , Tim Samaras and Carl young, and Paul Samaras were killed in the May 31st El Rino Tornado. A record breaking 2.6 miles wide with winds at a mind blowing 297 mph. Danm that is a monster.
My prayers go out to their family's.

This photo was shot in May 2012 on my way home from work. I love cumulus!!
Cumulus clouds are a type of low-level cloud that can have noticeable vertical development and clearly defined edges. Cumulo- means "heap" in Latin. They are often described as "puffy" or "cotton-like" in appearance, and are generally less than 6,500 feet (2,000 m) in altitude, unless they are of the vertical cumulus congestus form. Cumulus clouds may appear alone, in lines, or in clusters. Cumulus clouds are often precursors of other types of clouds, such as cumulonimbus, when influenced by weather factors such as instability, moisture, and temperature gradient. Cumulus clouds are part of the larger category of cumuliform clouds, which include stratocumulus clouds, cumulonimbus clouds, cirrocumulus clouds, and altocumulus clouds.

I am here now to try again, I downloaded the Blogger app to my phone so maybe that will make it easier.
Halloween has come and gone the air is cooler and Barack Obama has been re-elected for another term.
A super storm named Sandy hit the east coast with a fury no one has seen in a hundred years, Super storm Sandy reached 900 miles wide, carried winds speeds of more than 90 mph, caused billions of dollars in damage and claimed at least 100 lives. A storm that will be talked about for generations yet to come and not only that but they were hit again last night with a nor'easter. Weather sure has been weird the last few years, every year we breaking records for something. I know hurricane Sandy will go down in record books.
I started a new job in August, I am finally out of that damn factory!! Yea!!! I am severing at Cracker Barrel at nights. Which is very different from the last four years having nights and weekends off. I don't get to spend anytime with friends but I am making more money and I am working less hours and since my son changed schools I am able to take him to the boss stop in the morning and I am there when he gets home. I just don't get to have a social life a sacrifice I have to make.
