    I was watching Fox News this morning and Joe Bastardi, a tropical meteorologist with accuweather.com, says that there are numerous tropical waves scattered about the Atlantic, one is east of the Bahamas and is expected to move into the Gulf and he highlighted the FL panhandle as an area that needed to keep a close watch on this potential storm. :sosad: :sosad: :sosad:

    Stan is going to Mexico if that's the one he was talking about.

    Nope, Stan is not the one. This wave is in the Atlantic and appears to be heading this way, not necessarily Walton Co.

    Right. The latest model runs have it scattered from Around Jacksonville over to Apalachicola Bay. So its worth watching.

    This system has been labeled Invest 92 by the navy and right now it does look like a Florida system. And this is what the NHC has to say about this area.

    A LARGE AND COMPLEX SYSTEM OF DISTURBED WEATHER THAT EXTENDS FOR
    SEVERAL HUNDRED MILES FROM THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST BAHAMAS IS
    ASSOCIATED WITH A SURFACE TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE OVER THE CENTRAL
    BAHAMAS. SURFACE DATA AND SATELLITE IMAGES INDICATE THAT THE
    TROUGH IS CONTINUING TO BECOME A LITTLE BETTER DEFINED...BUT MOST
    OF THE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE LOCATED WELL TO THE EAST OF
    THE AREA OF LOWEST PRESSURE. UPPER-LEVEL WINDS ARE FORECAST TO
    BECOME MORE FAVORABLE FOR TROPICAL CYCLONE DEVELOPMENT OVER THE
    NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS...AND A NOAA RECONNAISSANCE AIRCRAFT IS
    SCHEDULED TO INVESTIGATE THE AREA TOMORROW...IF NECESSARY. AS
    THIS SYSTEM MOVES WESTWARD...HEAVY RAINS AND GUSTY WINDS ARE
    EXPECTED TO SPREAD INTO THE CENTRAL AND NORTHWESTERN BAHAMAS...AND
    REACH THE FLORIDA PENINSULA BY LATE TOMORROW OR WEDNESDAY.

    Thank goodness Tropical Storm Stan's, not coming around! :clap_1: I generally follow Weather Underground, as my preferred choice of forcasting the weather. This forcast is current, from their website.

    I've been looking at this wave for a couple days and so far it hasn't really gotten organized. No rotation, just a buch of thuderstorms. Of course this could change in 24 hours if it gets into the Gulf and warmer water. Current track has it going accross the FL pennisula, which should also keep it from growing in strength. Hopefully this is just going to be rain and some gusty winds. Here's a loop of the lower Atlantic.

    Tropical Storm Tammy is due to head up the coast of Florida now - towards Georgia. Suppose to be mainly a huge rainmaker.

    So, TS Tammy is what was previously referred to as Invest 92 (or an offshoot of Invest 92)?

    We need some rain in Ga but I'm not sure we need that much. :shock:

    Near the ATL and in SoWal as often as possible
    Exactly. Besides it'll be no fun at the GT game tomorrow night if it's raining. Guess we'll have to sit in the club area if it gets too bad and watch it inside. On the other hand, if it's raining that much, we should probably just stay home and watch it on TV!
