Lol. True. I guess "90% chance" caught my attention!

Do you have a hurricane escape spot available this summer?

Passage weather does not show it growing into anything evil. So far just calling for snotty weather later in the week near NOLA.

Of course we can trust the forcasters, right?

Keeping my eye on it. Leaving for florida this Saturday by road. Will have to move my boat by Friday mourning if needed. Seems that whenever I'm leaving for a while a dad gum storm pops up. Go figure.

We need the rain down here in south Texas, so I wouldn't mind a rainy few days.

I like the way the attached link says it is not expected to intensify much, but "with the possibility of a strong tropical storm at best."

Not, "at worst." I guess they are hoping for something more sensational.

Yep, we just got the first band off of this storm here in Jackson, MS. Got several alerts for local flooding. Check those lines!

It's the Gulf. It's summer. There is going to be some snotty weather.

What Fred said.

The gulf is also really large. The TS threat of it develops will still affect only a small coastal area. Likely TX and/or LA. Florida will be lovely. I'm going down for 2 weeks on my boat on Saturday. The extended forecast looks fantastic for the Keys. We're going to Dry Tortuga.

ddalme, looks like we are going to take it on the nose. Winds will not be too bad. The 6-8 inches of rain tomorrow night, is going to slow things down though.

Stay dry Doug!

Looks like it'll head your way for sure. Still going down a little after 10am and remove canvas on both boats and raise the 23 as high as it'll go and throw a few more line on the Relenti. Hoping it heads further west so we don't have extremely high tides. Make discision this afternoon if I'll move the boats. Hope all is well.

Cardude,

It already is a cyclone, with sustained winds at 40 mph. But if one is reasonably prepared it shouldn't be a huge issue. I suspect we'll have a lot more, like we usually do, but rarely a huge threat.

I always get confused when all we're talking about is a tropical storm, but I see people talking about hurricanes and hurricane preparation. I would just think that living in that area, one is always prepared for a tropical storm. The forecast I see says 45 mph winds and gusts up to 60 mph. It just bothers me that if we treat storms and hurricanes the same mentally, then while we might overreact to storms, we'll eventually fail to react adequately to hurricanes.

Yes, we should be prepared, but I'd think our boats should always be prepared to handle a tropical storm.

In much of Florida the PM thunderstorm is the norm .

Having stuff stowed for 40-60K in the puffs , is the norm.
