This could be very bad. I hope they get out or they hunker down safely.

Ya, the "forecasts" issued through the rest of today and into tomorrow morning will Tell the Tail.

The storms 'CAT" is one thing but, how big it is is the one thing that will let us know what kind of winds to expect.

As of now, it does not look too bad for us here in Brevard but, as we all know, , , , , , it don't take much for a storm to make a little turn and do a Charley on ya.

Ugh. I just got back from Utah where the weather was perfect. Low in the 40s, High in the 70s. Now this.

Looks like Brevard will get some weather. If the center moves thru Orlando, expect super strong NE winds, then East, then super strong SW winds.

I'm gonna board up the windows and clean out the yard debris that could go flying.

Tampa Bay Tide Chart

Doesn't look good for this either....

Glad we had all new storm windows put in the house last year. I guess they are going to get tested.

Friday-Saturday...Pleasant weather, especially compared to the last
couple weeks, swoops in behind Tropical Storm Ian as the storm
continues departing to the north-northeast. Substantially drier air
will be wrapped in behind Ian from the northwest, leading to lower
than normal temperatures and pleasant nights. Rain chances stick
around a little on Friday as a few squalls remain possible, then
mostly dry conditions. Breezy to windy conditions Friday, then winds
ease as Ian travels further away. Afternoon highs in the low to mid
80s, maybe upper 80s near Lake O. Overnight lows in the... wait for
it... mid 60s.

Sunday-Thursday...The pleasant weather streak continues through the
middle of the week. Non-existent rain chances as dry air remains in
place over Florida through Tuesday, then moisture begins to return,
bringing some modest rain chances with it. Temperatures remain below
normal, with highs in the low to mid 80s and lows in the mid to
upper 60s.

The Sanibel Causeway is Toast. I saw a pic of a smaller "broken" bridge but, , , , , that was not the part of the Sanibel Causeway that is not there any longer. The Lee County Sheriff's fly-over says it all.

I can't believe it was wiped off the face of the earth. Just gone.
