Press the FWD button.

The steering for this storm is not very certain yet, but the long range forecast is expecting a turn to the east. Right now, expecting landfall on the Fl east coast on the 26th or 27th. October storms tend to be a bit unpredictable due to the lack of steering, but the models are starting to line up...

Gotta take the good with the bad I suppose.

HRWF has it further south as of today.

I've posted the site before, but here are a few of the storm tracking models animated. They update every 6 or 12 hours.

With the $@#%*& drought we've got going, I'll take some wind if it means rain. That said, I'll believe it when I see it.

It looks like it's following a track similar to Wilma's in 2005. Hopefully it won't be a major hurricane when it nears FLA.

The latest track has it going northwest over the Yucatan and being downgraded into a weak low pressure area in the western Gulf. I was hoping for some rain but October may give us 0.00" of rain or 1.18" for September and October combined. How much longer can 2 day a week watering restrictions possibly last?

Keep an eye on it, these October storms tend to meander and the forecast will change significantly from day to day. I still think it will give us something as long as it doesn't take a more westward track before it makes its probable turn east. Fingers crossed.

My yard is dead and everything else is seriously stressed. We had a day with temps in the mid/upper 80s and a humidity reading at 28%. This was after a month of no rain. Not good for most Florida landscapes.

My coastal location keeps dewpoints up, but it is still so very dry. I am not so convinced this storm will dump needed rain here - perhaps far enough away to "dry" us out! as they often say.........that said, it is a long run guys so get used to it. The long term is well below normal precip and warmer than normal. YUK! :drool:

I hate this time of year. My time off of work consists of dragging the hose around. I can't keep up, things are really suffering even though I've mulched heavily.

Bren, you loved it just a few weeks ago. You wanted fall-like conditions remember? I'd love 90 degrees, 90% humidity and daily 40-50% daily rain chances right about now.
