This is a frightening situation. My son is a student at the University of Miami. Thankfully, yesterday we were able to book him a flight home. He flies out of MIA tonight and should land here around midnight. He says everyone on campus is super stressed out, rightfully so.
honestly, that's better than what I expected to see. Structures are still standing
Structural codes on many of those islands are very strict thankfully
They're a bit more strict on the French side. I've been to the Dutch side and it's a completely different story. On the Dutch side I was shocked to see what was either gas or water lines actually above ground. It was strange looking to say the least
The latest guidance develops enough of a weakness in the ridge for the storm to curve N just off the E FL coast but I wonder if they have corrected a bit too far to the right. Regardless, the conditions remain very favorable to support an intense cyclone as it approaches.
This bro lives a stones throw NNW of Brighton, IL.

Florida evacuation traffic starting to pick up in places. I-75 has heavy pockets starting just outside of Tampa and going off and on all the way to Lake City/I-10 (near Georgia border). I-95 heading north out of Miami also pretty heavy for a stretch. Glad to see lots are getting out now, but afraid what Friday and Saturday are going to look like and just hope everyone gets to where they need to be ahead of the storm.
Welcome to the shout box. Just trying this feature out.
snowday: What is the approximate timing of the Wednesday system? Are we talking rush/evening or later in the night - like after 8pm?

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.

snowday_lover: So weird.... sun is really out here right now. I just expected it to be full cloud cover by now. Hopefully the clouds move in soon. I'm ready to see what we get down here.

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.
