Having a daughter and two grandsons living not far south of Jacksonville, I have been somewhat concerned about the current tropical weather.  A few days ago the GFDL model showed the Jacksonville area getting tropical storm winds from Nicole but that is no longer in the forecast.  However, interestingly, this morning’s GFDL model shows another storm moving along almost the same track as Nicole off to the east of Miami 5 days from now!  We shall see.

In the U.S. Navy plot above, the two nearly identical figures that look like oddly altered letter D’s represent the 34 knot line.  In other words, sustained wind velocities outside of those figures are expected to be less than 34 knots (nautical miles per hour).

Yours Truly,
