93L intensifying along great Florida coast.. Julia may form close in
NHC has raised 93L to orange 40% however there has been talk of an upgrade.
Satellite imagery along with radar and ground observations make a compelling case for iniation of advisories.
As 93L is not trekking across Florida but parallel to the coast in a spot where the coast bends NNW it could stay over water for some time. Steering currents become weak and localized flooding could become a problem.
It would be beneficial to upgrade, and put out coherent advisories and review how the models missed this later.
Either way a tropical system is forming over the Florida coastline with most of the convection over a hot part of the Gulfstream.
I'll do a regular update later today. On the road southbound somewhere in South Carolina.
Please check with your local NWS if u live near or in the path of intensifying Invest 93L.
