The image above, released 5:07 PM EDT, today, Oct. 22, is a prognostication for 8:00 PM EDT, Friday, Oct. 24.  It predicts moderate rain and thunderstorms along a wide expanse of the Florida Gulf Coast.  This anticipated weather will be a combination of the former Invest 91L and typical pre-cold frontal weather.  Though the tropical component was responsible for at least 13 flood-related deaths in Honduras, great difficulties in Guatemala, and tens of millions of dollars of damage in Belize – it is not expected to be a threat to Florida.  In fact, in-so-far as the National Hurricane Center is concerned, 91L no longer exists.

It appears, then, that the forecast posted in this web-log yesterday is now toned down significantly.  However, there is a high probability for precipitation in Florida on Thursday and Friday and wind velocity forecasts that I’ve been able to examine this evening suggest winds above 25 mph at and near the Big Bend of Florida’s Gulf Coast peaking around 8 AM EDT Saturday morning.  See image below:

CONNECTION DIFFICULTIES – Cloudman23 – Oct. 17, 2008

MY NEW TITLE FOR THE IMAGE ABOVE IS – “WILL HE EVER GET BACK ON LINE?”

This post is for the purpose of letting my “regulars,” mostly friends interested in tropical weather or family members looking in to see what’s happening, know that I am currently dependent upon a very weak wireless signal up here in the mountains.  On my retirement budget I can’t justify at this time the expense of a more sophisticated and reliable connection.  The signal I get, in addition to being weak, is intermittent.  This is the first time I’ve been able to get on line since yesterday morning.  So – if there is inactivity, please know that all is O.K.  I hope that all is O.K. for you too.  My only weather source under these conditions is the weather channel but my ability to communicate with you is temporarily very limited.  I hope, within the next few days, to be able to improve the situation.

Yours Truly,

Tonie Toney
