Debby remnants has actually organized a bit today. All three scattermeters passed on her today. I posted Windsat.. the 1st, this morning...not at all closed, elongated, being pushed by the front.. Oscat is the latest, closing up, convection firing, becoming more separate from the frontal feature.

97L is new~ The mid-Atlantic blob. It's got a well placed Upper level low to the NNW. Ridge is trying to set up over that would send a racing sheared blob straight west. That didn't really play out as expected last week. It's stronger ridging, but we'll see, could slow up & go a little more North.

Gulf blob..some diffluence aloft been stoking it. Now it's got an ULL to it's NW & looks fairly stationary. Starting to want to give it an outside chance..

Hades~ Looks like some heavy rain with 21P.

Wab~ See you have fusia warnings today..stay cool!

LowerCal~ Delta4 delayed, caught me off guard. I'll get a plume pic up later. Longest rumble. Rattle house.

Jus~ Dragonfly ended up with a dread. Got it out...

I hope all members of the household and the hair are feeling more relaxed today.

For the other locals: A Delta IV Heavy launch from Cape Canaveral is targeted for 6:13am EDT tomorrow morning.

A Delta IV Heavy uses three liquid hydrogen-oxygen engines that create long orange flames and water vapor exhaust that shows up as a heavy condensation trail. The announced target time of the launch is about 15 minutes before sunrise. This could result in a condensation trail that rises from low light into bright and reddish sunrise colors - a nice photo op.

Was taking out the recycling in the driving mist & noted the west wind. Debby is north of me!

Buster (mini pony that is a freak about tropical weather) is a bit frantic this morning about it all. He could probably use a Valerian snack.

Declared a HAIRCON2 this morning. Hair was nearly dreads after the pony ride. Took forever to brush out. Wolk up to almost as bad. Beware to all the other fluffheaded people out there...Good day for braids.

Hades~ Not good about the heavy to Intense rain with Doksuri..wish we had a good TRMM pass.

Jus~ Loved that pic too. You can click on it to go to it. Nice to see the hay high & dry. The Mom there looks like she's headed for some refreshment while her baby is tasting life. What a cute pair of paints too.

Hades~ Ha you know me too well.."Debby" has made a great excuse for a few Hurricane Parties & yes I did just return from a several mile pony ride between rain bands..Was careful. Everything is slick. Skye the actual pony snorted at the wind but a total gentleman, sunset was awesome. Highest gust today so far was 34mph.

Finn~ Wet doggie has got to be soaked.
That is alot of rain...


Shep~ Yep, hard to discount a model pulling away from the pack like that...go AVNO...

Checked the model verification on Debbie. AVNO hands down winning.. AEMN (GFS) gets best of the rest.

Wab~ city hall there is showing less than an inch the last few days. Might want to check some other stations in that area. Go full screen (upper left) & click weather stations..

Well the Geos-5, that I chased off this cliff finally changed it's path... Brings it right barely north over me. I've been in some pretty hard denial about this one. Not a convenient time at all for this. Though did cut a big branch down that would have tore up the barn lastnight.

Good morning all~ Squall line setting up & traversing FL this morning. Y'all be safe!

Still expecting Debby to sit there & drown FL through like Thursday or Friday before it starts trekking west. Maybe brush LA on the way to TX..

Flooding & tornadoes are the biggest threat. East central FL has been bumped up to the orange warning for tornadoes today.

AF309 is up.. got a fix, now buzzing the coast just south of Tampa at about 5000'..

Hey Skye - Just the thought of the "debris ball" sends cold chills down my spine...splintered trees and rocks, sharp metal and broken glass, jagged pieces of buildings moving with so much force...how frail we are in the face of a monster like that. I haven't heard of any injuries from this particular storm that came too close to you and that is happy news. Property damage can be fixed, but it is very fortunate that no one was physically hurt or badly traumatized.

I watched that line of storms come in from the west off of the ocean, it was very strange. There was that convergent band pounding the Tampa Bay area for much of the day, then in the late afternoon/early evening it was as if the band swung around and attacked the entire FL Gulf coast from Tampa south, with the line moving in rapidly from the WSW as if it were some sort of front. Maybe a slug of dry air got pulled into the mid-layers and it was a sort of dry line. But whatever it was, with the line moving in from that direction and surface winds from the S and SE it was obviously big trouble the entire way across the state. We got lucky it wasn't worse.

North end of the county took the brunt. Just a little wind & rain. Looks like a weak upper level COC coming across the state from Tampa to Titusville. It's making me sleepy..

Tornado with debris ball hit Yeehaw Junction went west of me up the county line. A line of heavy weather looks on the way.

Thank you Skye. A little stronger! I am hoping that if it really stays fairly stationary or drifts north over the extensive GOM shelf it will cause upwelling of cooler waters and fade away...but if it drifts with a southerly component or moves over the FL peninsula we may still get some decent winds. I've got a lot of young trees with new growth, and a lot of newly trimmed bamboo poles meant for staking. I think I will get outside while there is still some light and reinforce the tender vegetation.

One more baby snake hatched a couple of hours ago...poor thing has been yoked to its yolk sack but it looks OK. Nine eggs to go. Some do not look good, but I hope a few more make it out.
