well it sure looks like we all..can count on TS force winds,the storm is huge, I ready hurricane force winds today extend out 45 miles from center and TS force winds extend outward of 140miles.this can all change of course over the coming days.

If that's what you're offering and putting on the table I'll take TS winds. There I feel much better. Thanks! fun

got this off a fox 13 site............................Ten years ago, the Pinellas property appraiser developed simulations for the county.  After a Category 1 hurricane, much of Dunedin is under water, while Redington Shores gets it from both sides.  And when you bump it up to a Category 2 hurricane, most of Redington Shores gets flooded, Dunedin gets swamped, and flooding sweeps to the Bayfront Tower in St. Petersburg. 
Move up to a Category 3 storm and it takes out 4th Street in St. Pete, while Old Southeast would be reduced to rooftops.  The model shows a Category 4 storm floods the interstate and Tropicana Field.
A Category Five turns the whole downtown blue, as much of the interstate and other major streets go under water -- just as we've seen this week in Texas.
The Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council also worked up a model for a Category 5 storm.  Beyond the flood damage, it projected wind damage would wipe out nearly a half-million homes and businesses.

Indeed. Levi Cowan last night said OTS isn't out of the question yet and it depends on the two highs and the low cold front coming down. If not then Irma can slam into the mountains of Hispanola, weaken and continue its westward trek away from FL and serve us only TS winds, which at this point would be a gift on a platter.

I friend and colleague of mine, a just retired Dean move to Clearwater this year. He's in a condo on the beach. Wonder what those folks do since it's built out of concrete. I wouldn't want to be trapped w/o power in there. Don't know how high up he is either.

yup add the forward speed on the North side as she heads West and you have gust to 185 ... Best way to picture her is :

She's the biggest diameter EF3 tornado you ever saw with her funnel hidden

behind the worlds largest rain shield..

so some model say up the gulf coast, some say up the middle for awhile and some say up the east coast..hence the uncertainty just yet...by Friday they should know better...what worries me some...we have a cold front that will be snaking down the state later this week..and in the NHC discussion this morning it said the Euro model might slow down over central florida..maybe it bumps up against this front and stalls out for awhile..thats the worst case for us..

Jose is now official.

Tropical Storm Jose Discussion Number 1
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL122017
1100 AM AST Tue Sep 05 2017

Deep convection associated with the disturbance in the central
Atlantic has become more organized overnight. Banding features
are starting to develop as seen in the first-light visible pictures
from the GOES and METEOSAT imagery. Additionally, the ASCAT
scatterometers sampled the system at 1140Z and 1234Z, showing that a
well-defined - though slightly elongated - center had formed. The
maximum believable winds from ASCAT were 35 kt. Thus advisories
are being started on Tropical Storm Jose, the 10th named storm of
the Atlantic season.

With no history on the center location, the motion is estimated to
be west-northwest at 11 kt. Jose should move toward the west or
west-northwest for the next three to four days at a slightly faster
rate of forward speed as it moves south of the deep-layer
Azores-Bermuda high. In about four to five days, Jose should turn
toward the northwest and slow as it reaches the southwestern
periphery of the high. The model guidance is in good agreement
with this scenario and the official forecast is based upon a blend
of the ECMWF-GFS-UKMET deterministic and ensemble model output.

The environment in which Jose is located in appears to be quite
conducive for development for the next three days as the SSTs are
very warm, the vertical shear is very low, and there is abundant
mid-level moisture. By days four and five, however, the vertical
shear may increase in part due to the outflow from Hurricane Irma to
its west. Thus the official intensity forecast show steady
intensification until day three, then remains flat through day
five. This forecast is based upon the IVCN multi-model consensus
technique, but has the usual - large - uncertainties at the long
forecast range.

The ASCAT observations indicate that the tropical-storm-force winds
extend out about 40 nm from the center in the southeastern
quadrant. The official size forecast suggests a gradual increase in
size, based upon the RVCN multi-model consensus approach.


FORECAST POSITIONS AND MAX WINDS

INIT 05/1500Z 12.3N 39.1W 35 KT 40 MPH
12H 06/0000Z 12.8N 40.8W 40 KT 45 MPH
24H 06/1200Z 13.4N 43.4W 50 KT 60 MPH
36H 07/0000Z 13.9N 46.2W 60 KT 70 MPH
48H 07/1200Z 14.4N 49.2W 70 KT 80 MPH
72H 08/1200Z 16.0N 55.0W 90 KT 105 MPH
96H 09/1200Z 18.5N 59.0W 90 KT 105 MPH

I do see a problem with the run though - it initialized at too high of a pressure. It is using 962mb and she was at about 930mb, which is substantially stronger.

I don't know if any of you plan to go to work Friday..just remember those tropical storm force winds will be beginning to hit here then..sort of dangerous driving in it if its the strong kind. we might go to publix and see if the have any dry ice packs left...that might be good for the fridge for awhile,plus we have a lot of coolers we can put any food in as well...as long as my roof holds I think i'll be ok.

Thanks for the tip Largo on lawn ornaments. I've got some on the front and back of the house too. Were taking the flag and the pole down as well. I pray this storm keeps us all safe and in His hands. There's a lot of folks that live in Miami Dade, smart to get them out and started on the road. Next update at 430?

No offense to anyone in the islands but I am hoping Irma takes the low road and Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, and Cuba can put a big dent in her. Sigh
