Jacksonville might get slammed by a tropical storm today

With the warm water temps, the tropical conditions are really starting to heat up...

Dude, that is just a thunderstorm.

Actually, it's an area of low pressure of interest. It's not a tropical system yet, but has the potential to develop. NWS is keeping a close eye on it as it moves over the peninsula and if it holds together out over the gulf.. If it develops, it will be called Arlene.

The thunderstorm that rip through Jax can be horrendous. In the first years I lived in the neighborhood, the local weatherperson would be telling you what street the tornado was on. I had no idea where the streets were. It was nerve racking. I would have to turn the tv off........i2f

I'm watching this one, as well as that big system south of Cuba, since we are racing from Galveston to Port Isabel this weekend.

So far, they're thinking some rain and t-storms in the northern Gulf - but nothing big. Still worth watching.

Where the *HELL* did these systems come from?!?! I watch NOAA pretty carefully, but y'day...nothing and today 2 Tropical Systems???

This is going to be a rough year....

Give me a break... it was 30 minutes of rain and 2 hours of drizzle and no wind.

60 to 80 miles away can be a big difference. Systems have to start, and end somewhere............i2f

Guys.. you all know it's too early to worry about this stuff..... August will come soon enough.

Do we get a burgie for sailing through a hurricane?
