Issac & The Florida Straits

This is Isaac at Midnight. A messy, still disorganized storm with huge amounts of weather far from the center that is being tracked by the NHC. A bright dot on the North Coast of Cuba, moving over hot water.


A red dot. Doesn't look like a lot to write home about. My books have been written about storms similar to this that came together at the last moment and kept going.

For now.. I don't think South Florida will have much bad weather, some bouts of tropical storm force winds... depends where the worst of the rain storms go and the time of the day, tornadoes are possible.

Not much to add to the previous forecast... or thoughts. It's still a wait and watch storm.

Predictions for his life in the Gulf are otherwise and get muy dramatic as he gets out above Key West... we will see.

I just want people to remember Katrina... before she hit Miami. A weak storm that looked unable to pull together. Not because she went to Nola.. because she pulled together 2 hours before and while hitting Aventura Florida.

Wikipedia link:

"Hurricane Katrina formed as Tropical Depression Twelve over the southeastern Bahamas on August 23, 2005 as the result of an interaction of a tropical wave and the remains of Tropical Depression Ten. The system was upgraded to tropical storm status on the morning of August 24 and at this point, the storm was given the name Katrina. The tropical storm continued to move towards Florida, and became a hurricane only two hours before it made landfall between Hallandale Beach and Aventura on the morning of August 25. The storm weakened over land, but it regained hurricane status about one hour after entering the Gulf of Mexico.[3]"

I want people to understand this happens, over and over and it's worth remembering. Do not let your guard down. 

In the Keys... stay vigilant... not sure if Isaac will go west or east... and even if he goes West his weather is on the NE side and South Florida and ALL of the Florida Keys will get the "dirty side" the rain and wind and rain and rain.. 

Stay tuned... watch tomorrow. It's hard to trust the models for sure because the storm is still so weak. But the models are predicting what will go on in the air around the storm.. and that is worth noting.
