Morning All,
I'M not surprised by the southward kind of shift in the track. The high pressure to the north is going to be the factor as to how far southwest Flo goes.
Keep an eye on this storm!!!
As for around here not much going on. I have 1.99 in the bucket for the month so far.
Have a great day!!!!

I think all the meteorologists are nervous Largo. They don't know where this storm is going and it's 2 days from potential landfall. At this point I am guessing it won't landfall in NC, but ride down the coast and loop aroundt a bit before finally coming ashore in SC. The models showed this potential weakness in the steering currents due to the high building in many days ago and everyone just thought they were overblown. They seemed to get a handle on the storm turning northward and following the classic path arcing NE and eventually away from the US. Now the models have shifted back to the high building in stronger to the north and stalling her, even potentially sending her southward. I am beginning to think the storm will meander for days as a depression over the SC/GA area. Florence is going to really spread a lot of the destruction around due to this. I think the rainfall is going to be epic in some area of the SE, but nobody can say where that will be with any confidence as of yet. Somebody is going to get hammered that originally thought they were out of the woods.

At this time it appears that some rain bands may affect northern FL, depending on how far south Florence gets. It doesn't look like FL will be getting the strong winds, surge, etc. unless this thing stalls far offshore and then heads south into the JAX area. If that happens it could end up being disastrous as I don't think people could get out due to traffic. Also, where would they go with the fact that NC, SC and GA will have evacuated as well. I am sure some of those people came south into FL and GA to get away from the storm when we thought it was going northward into the mid Atlantic. What a forecasting and planning nightmare.

yes we have to wait this out and see IF it does sink southward and how close it comes to Florida.

I was reading on some of the blogs, SO many folks fled NC (as they should have, and went to areas in Georgia)... What a mess for all.

it-depending how much you use..freezes the food in the freezer and keeps it frozen for longer periods of time after power goes out.if i see the storm coming my way i'll go buy several large bags of it..i have a stand alone 6 foot freezer in my garage

billsfan...hope this works...........Dry ice in freezer during power outage
At -109 degrees F, dry ice can replace the cooling power of a refrigerator or freezer. During a power outage, place dry ice on the top shelf of the freezer and the bottom shelf of the refrigerator. In a standard freezer, you will need 25-30 pounds of dry ice to keep food frozen for one day.Jan 22, 2016

Bastardi's take is that the Euro is going to win this round and Florence is going to stall just offshore of Wilmington. She is then going to drift slowly south westward and finally make a landfall somewhere near Savannah, GA. The storm will then slowly move westward into GA and southern SC and then re-curve through Tennesee and NC and eventually re-emerge off the Mid-Atlantic coastline late next week. He also has Isaac or the remnants of hitting S FL late next week. He think it could die off then try to re-form somewhere near the straights. I know he likes to hype so take it with a grain of salt.

long discussion for your area AUG..be safe ok....................................87

Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Jacksonville FL
932 AM EDT Wed Sep 12 2018

...SWELLS FROM FLORENCE WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD TODAY THROUGH
THURSDAY WITH ROUGH SURF AND LIFE-THREATENING RIP CURRENTS AT
AREA BEACHES...

.UPDATE...

Major Hurricane Florence continues to approach the southeast U.S.
coast this morning. The mean 1000-500 mb flow is is generally
northeasterly over southeast GA and northeast FL as outer cyclonic
circulation of Florence impinges on the region now. We are just
as moist as we were yesterday but there is more abundance of low
level moisture which is allowing early start to convection along
the coastal areas. Radar shows isolated showers up and down the
coast where low level moisture convergence is maximized early this
morning. Expect continuation of showers and storms developing
through the morning aided by daytime heating and the east coast
sea breeze. PWATs remain around 2 inches for the majority of the
day today favoring heavy downpours, though storm motion should be
a bit faster than yesterday`s storms as onshore flow increases.
High temperatures in the lower 90s are expected inland with upper
80s at the beaches, resulting in heat index values of about
100-105 areawide. A few showers and storms may linger inland past
sunset again, but for the most part most locations will be dry
tonight but may see a few coastal showers pushing northeast to
southwest.

Long period swells along area waters will continue to will build
through Thursday creating life-threatening rip currents and rough
surf. Minor coastal flooding and beach erosion are possible.

&&

.AVIATION...
Scattered showers and storms will develop along the Atlantic
seabreeze and move inland by late morning/early afternoon. Winds
will remain north to northeast early then shift to prevailing
northeast-east at about 5 to 10 knots, maybe as high as 15 knots
at coastal terminals. A few storms may linger past sunset, but
otherwise most convection should end by early evening.

&&

.MARINE...
Increased east northeast swell is expected later today from
Hurricane Florence. Small Craft Advisory are in effect
this afternoon with seas building through the day. Highest waves
will likely remain in the offshore waters, but could approach 12
feet there, and around 7 feet in the nearshore waters. High
astronomical tides will continue to produce elevated water levels
the next few days near times of high tide. There is some
uncertainty in what happens with Florence for the weekend, with
the possibility of tropical storm force winds reaching the area
waters by Saturday. Stay tuned to the latest forecast as well as
the National Hurricane Center to monitor for any changes in
conditions beyond Friday.

Rip Currents: High risk through the end of the week. High surf
advisory may be needed for tonight and into Thursday as breakers
approach 7 feet.

&&

.PRELIMINARY POINT TEMPS/POPS...
AMG 91 73 92 72 / 50 10 10 0
SSI 88 76 91 76 / 40 10 10 0

Well Sis and Bro-IL in Summerville SC are hunkering down for the ride. RV is ready to roll (and tied down), over 100 gals of gas in vehicles and cans. They are not flood prone, and are tying everything down today that cannot be stashed away. They both went thru Hugo, so know what they're getting in to.

Good to them JR- sounds like they have it under control!   Niece in Charleston is part of the Hospital disaster plan so she HAS to stay there (at the hospital)
She says they have plenty of food, water and sleeping quarters.  Her fiancée left with the dog and headed to Florida somewhere.  The other niece in Hilton Head hasn't checked in yet, but I'm sure she's with her patients too.  (had to evacuate last time)...

Thanks Largo.. Hope our generator arrives on 9/20 as scheduled.  I've heard stories of pre-ordered, pre-paid for generators can voided and they can take yours and send it elsewhere.  That doesn't strike me as fair, what if I need it too??  But I know it happens.   I wanted to get one cash and carry from Lowes earlier this week but they had nothing big enough for hubby's liking.

Friend just completed a house outside of Wilmington, hopefully with all the new construction codes the house will stand up well. But they aren't sticking around to find out.

Afternoon y'all.....

Looks like Flo may be taking a slight hit from some shear this afternoon. I hope that is the case and she doesn't have the opportunity to beef herself back up.

JR, sounds like your family has things under control up there, I wish them the best of luck that this storm is kind to them. Smile

Good luck to all with family in the path. As san mentioned the storm (for now) is losing some umph so that is good.

The only place I'll be driving on Friday Largo is to the store to pick up my weekend beer stash after my work day is over, lol.

Seems all the models are finally locking in on a solution for that southward trend. Looks like a NC/SC system. Now (as JR pointed out sometime ago) Isaac could get interesting. These storms definitely keep us on our toes.

At this time it appears that some rain bands may affect northern FL, depending on how far south Florence gets. It doesn't look like FL will be getting the strong winds, surge, etc. unless this thing stalls far offshore and then heads south into the JAX area. If that happens it could end up being disastrous as I don't think people could get out due to traffic. Also, where would they go with the fact that NC, SC and GA will have evacuated as well. I am sure some of those people came south into FL and GA to get away from the storm when we thought it was going northward into the mid Atlantic. What a forecasting and planning nightmare.

Waterdipper you are right about where to go. I am to go to the smoke mountains weekend of the 24th Sept. I called last night and they told me to call back next Wednesday to see if there is any gas at the stations. She told me they are out of gas almost everywhere and this is very far inland. Just like our area last year.
Otherwise all is ok in my neck of the state.
Have a great day!!!

I made it to 21 days straight with rainfall now. The good news is the last three days the storms have only given me a glancing blow and I got a cumulative of .15". Looks like Florence is losing some power but gaining in size and attempting to spread her wrath far and wide. I believe she is going to suck some dry air into Florida the next few days lowering our rain chances overall. I am a little bit concerned by Isaac as I don't like storms that get into the western Carribbean this time of year. Hopefully shear and dry air will kill him off on his trip across.

Good news with Florence at Cat 2 this morning.  Hopefully she will continue to weaken...

Isaac continues unfavorable for development, which is good news as well.  Still something to watch -- we've seen stranger things happen.

Tropical Storm Isaac Discussion Number  23
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL092018
500 AM AST Thu Sep 13 2018

Data from a NOAA P-3 Hurricane Hunter aircraft that departed the
storm shortly before 0600 UTC indicated that the tropical storm has
weakened a little more.  Maximum flight-level winds were around 51
kt, while maximum SFMR winds were only 41 kt.  Both of these
support an initial intensity of 40 kt.  Wind measurements from the
plane also suggested that Isaac is close to opening up into a
tropical wave and its circulation is likely barely closed at the
surface.  Another P-3 mission is scheduled for this morning.

Isaac is nearly completely devoid of deep convection at the moment,
and is not trackable in radar data from Guadeloupe and Martinique.
Given the lack of deep convection to sustain the cyclone, continued
gradual weakening is expected.  However, given the extent of
40 mph winds observed by the NOAA plane, Isaac is still likely to
bring gusty conditions to many of the Leeward Islands through
this afternoon.  The dynamical guidance is now in fairly good
agreement on the intensity of Isaac for the next few days, and
nearly all of the models depict Isaac opening into a trough between
48 and 96 h.
 The NHC forecast conservatively maintains Isaac
through day 4 in an attempt to maintain some continuity, but it
is very possible that Isaac will open into a trough sooner than
indicated.  Some of the dynamical models suggest that regeneration
could occur in the western Caribbean, however the predictability of
such an event is too low to explicitly show in the forecast at this
point.

Isaac is still moving quickly westward, with an initial motion of
275/15 kt.  Confidence in the track forecast remains high, and the
track guidance is tightly clustered through the forecast period.
Very little change was made to the track forecast, which continues
to closely follow the HCCA model.  As long as Isaac remains a
shallow cyclone, it should continue to be steered westward by the
low-level tradewind flow, even if, or when, it opens up into a
trough.


Key Messages:

1. Isaac is expected to produce tropical-storm-force winds across
portions of the Lesser Antilles this morning and afternoon, and
tropical storm warnings are in effect for Martinique, Dominica, and
Guadeloupe.

2. Tropical storm watches are in effect for Montserrat, St. Kitts
and Nevis, Antigua, Barbuda, Saba and St. Eustatius, St. Maarten,
and St. Martin.  Tropical storm conditions are possible on these
islands today and interests on those islands should follow any
advice given by their local officials.
