This system is huge - from Florida to Hispaniola



The good news is that it is not very heavy rain and the wind is mild for the most part,

One of these days we won't be so lucky and there will be a super hurricane of the same size. These small islands won't recover for decades.

1. It's pouring here in Jax. Been coming off the ocean in bands.

Should be interesting the next few days.

9. me too, which is why I cling to the desert southwest

Unless you insist on living in a half million dollar heap of masonry on the river, you'll never see a mosquito here. It's too arid to support them except in stagnant pools next to the river.

8. The track keeps getting revised, also

People on the central west coast of Florida better keep watch.

It looks like the outer banks of NC are going to get a one-two punch from this one and TD eight. Neither is expected to become a hurricane before landfall and both are expected to go out to sea after skimming the coast.

In the meantime, Lester in the Pacific is a Category Four. It's expected to remain at hurricane strength as it moves north of Hawaii, so surfers there will have a great time.

11. Shower after shower

Here in Lake County-central Florida.

Not much wind. Just rain. And the end of the day unless it develops into a Hurricane it will be a net positive. Florida does not store water well and needs large amounts on a regular basis.
