Colleagues, No change in forecast. FORECAST: Tropical Storm MARIA is now the same latitude as the Florida/Georgia border but well out to sea. Winds are 65 mph and Maria will have a last burst of energy before weakening permanently starting Friday. Bermuda will experience Tropical Storm force winds this afternoon. Movement is to the NNE at 26 mph and accelerating as Maria turns NE in the strong winds ahead of the trough.
NEXT FORECAST: Since Maria does not pose any threat to the US the next forecast will not be until the next tropical system which will not be until next week. Have a good weekend.
DISCLAIMER: The Florida State University required that I not use any FSU equipment to send out these forecasts. To comply, I have purchased my own computer for making and sending these forecasts. I have been touched by the many offers of encouragement and support that I have received. I am deeply indebted to the Secretary and the staff of the Department of Children and Families who value these forecasts for the citizens of Florida. Also to the firm Hayes Computer Systems, which set up the distribution software and is providing for the distribution of these forecasts at no cost. They are very professional and competent. I acknowledge that these forecasts are mine alone, by my own effort and initiative. I only try to provide the best possible forecasts for the community, and the State of Florida and now, surrounding states at no cost to those who receive it.
NEW BLOG AND DONATIONS:
I have set up a website and blog which may be reached at URL http://www.hurricanehunt.com In this website you can find the forecast, as well as a blog of expanded interests of mine dealing with weather and climate and hurricanes, and an opportunity for you to comment as well. There is also an opportunity for you to contribute to defraying the increasing costs of maintaining this service, if and only if you want to. This must always be a not for profit public service and free as long as I have anything to do with it. But I have had offers of help in the past and it is increasingly difficult for me to underwrite all the cost, even with the generous and gracious support form Hayes Computer Systems.
