    I live in Sarasota and your daily updates whenever a tropical cyclone is is in the making have always helped me anticipate and prepare for what may be coming. I then turn to our excellent local weather channel, Bay News Weather 9 in Tampa which, of course, always incorporates the findings and alerts from the National Hurricane Center.
    A heartfelt thank you for what you do, even more so now that I know you live near Miami and know first hand the impacts of these storms!
    Please stay safe yourself!

    So this morning, the Weather Underground model page shows none of the models coming to the west coast of the Fla peninsula.

    So why is the official forecast track from the NHC having the center of the track hitting Dixie County Florida, in the Big Bend?

    Want to know why the tropical storm-force wind field just shrunk by half in the next advisory? I emailed the NHC and told them that I wasn’t getting TS-force winds, so they changed the extent of the wind field. The highest 15-second wind gust we had was 24 mph, and that was hours before the NHC said we had tropical storm-force winds in our area (Tampa).

      My guess is that they were estimating the wind field and surface readings didn’t show TS winds, so they shrunk it at the new advisory.

      Because it is an evolving situation, forecasts often present a worst case scenario with data at a given moment, models are not perfect, sometimes weather changes outside of estimates … I have been in the path of an average storm and gotten whalloped, I have been in the path of a supposed super destructive storm for most of WFL … only to see it fizz out upon arrival.
      Be happy this storm will not be destructive to NA.
