This is why weathermen suck IMO. They will spend 2 weeks plus talking about a storm that never touches South Florida, now out of nowhere they say "oh, a TD developed and looks like we will have to issue a hurricane or TS watch for it since it might hit within the next day and a half". I mean I know these folks try, but WTF.

Bleh I haven't heard it, and I guess my point moreso is it is just today designated as a Depression, and all of a sudden oh in a day in a half, maybe two it's making landfall as a Storm, maybe a Hurricane. Some warning...

You can't exactly predict what a tropical system is going to do before it even forms.

Its part of the same wave that spawned TD 10. But it merged with another distrubance and thus, its TD 12 not regenerated TD 10.

Takes 3 days to clear out most areas. The east coast of Florida has high ground once you pass I-95.

As of the 11PM advisory, a Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for Southeast Florida from west of the 7 Mile Bridge in the Keys northward to Vero Beach. This means tropical storm conditions are possible in this area within 36 hours. However, with steering currents in the atmosphere being very light and unpredictable, this system could slow down or meander one direction or another, so it warrants watching over the next day or two.

Big deal. A Tropical Storm or Cat.1 Hurricane isn't going to cause much damage, except for flooding if it carries a lot of rain. Nothing to worry too much about though.

A Cat 1 Hurricane can be very powerful. Frances brought cat 1 strength gusts to Coral Springs and did quite a bit of damage, a tree fell on our house. Sustained winds could do plently of damage.

Category One's are notorious for their rain, especially in crawlers like this one.
