T.D. 9 and T.D. 10 Hermine or Ian? That is our first question.

Possible SW Coast of Florida on Wednesday morning?  Stay tune!

Earlier, Tropical Depression #9 was investigated by Hurricane Hunters, they found a broad area of low pressure. Still, since being on station, they recorded a gradual increase in air pressure and a nearly complete loss of showers and storms anywhere near the center. Not quite a tropical storm, yet.

Then again, tropical depression #10 formed just off the coast of Africa and will just add to some short-term confusion on storms and storm names, pay attention to tropical depression #9.

Track and Intensity forecasts – What next?

The basic and most important rule on hurricane forecasting, as we have seen repeatedly this season from the GFS, is that without a clear-cut, well-established core, track and intensity forecasting is pretty much worthless. I expect both the GFS and the Euro will become more in agreement as the National Hurricane Center sends in ever more resources to investigate the developing tropical storm.

Yet, the models are rather scary for someone.

The good news for Jacksonville, we will be on the “other side” of the state for this particular storm. At the moment, few models give Jacksonville more than 2-3″ of rain with the passage somewhat west of Jacksonville or somewhat south of Jacksonville.

As you enjoy a fall-like weekend, the prudent thing to do might be to double-check your generators, essential supplies of food and water, and the possibility of being without power for a few days.
