One thing about coming directly in South Florida is if it comes in just a little bit further east than Miami will get a surge. They have a little stretch there that goes almost directly east west as part of their coastline. That would be vulnerable and right where it meets the north-south part would be very vulnerable

These islands aren't even big enough to be but a speck in the eye. It just plowing over them and not losing any steam because they're so small. What a shame. The Virgin Islands are next. I don't see any way they're going to get missed. I've been to the national park on st. John. Beautiful place with a beautiful beach.

The center of the storm track shows off the coast of Puerto Rico. You have to consider how wide the eye is and how wide the swath of 125 mile an hour winds Maybe. The total width of very destructive hurricane force winds maybe as much as 50 or 60 miles. The actual eye doesn't have to pass over land to do damaged severely along the North Shore Puerto Rico. Just one of the eyewalls will do it.

Almost 5 years to the day I was on my honeymoon at Oyster Bay resort in St Martin, which is on the east side of the island. I remember fearing that a hurricane or TS might ruin our trip. I can't imagine the devastation they have there.
Looking at the satellite loop, I can't make that radar loop on my phone, it appears Puerto Rico for the most part is going to dodge the big bullet. The eye wall may nick the northeast corner
Looks to me like the southern eye wall is going to cross the northeast tip of the island...very close or just east of San Juan. Close enough to be bad.
Yeah, San Juan is not in the best spot for this one. The wind gradient could be pretty crazy. You could have the Northeast half of San Juan pretty much devastated and the Southwest with moderate damage

grizzlebeard: I'll put this here since it rarely rolls over: Please include your location in your profile, or identify your location when posting observations. You saying it is 20 and raining doesn't help if we don't know where you are. That is all.

gonefishin - WashMO: Okay. I know these storms are no laughing matter, and I don't know if anyone has posted this, AND I know it's from the Weather Channel, which in and of itself causes it to lose some credibility, but this is one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

MakeitRain: The 12z NAM wants to develop a line of storms through the metro around 1-2pm this afternoon. However, the HRRR is not picking up on this piece. I would not rule out the chance of severe weather as we head into the afternoon.
