Default Tropical Storm Katrina to Bring Rain to Florida but Watch Ou

Looks like TS Katrina will bring wet weather this weekend. Actually, we could use the rain.

But watch out for the next one!!!

Lee looks sure to form as a hurricane. Currently it should be be entering the straights of Florida morning of 11 September. Folks in Key West are pleased (if you can ever be pleased) with the timing as storm will not impact Labor Day Weekend activities. They will be glad to shoo all the tourists out of town the next weekend when Lee arrives.

Hope all cruisers are ready for Bermuda or Canadian ports. With Lee entering the straights, there will be no way for ships to enter Gulf of Mexico from Florida East Coast Ports. Sure is fun planning cruises during hurricane season.

Please just let it be dry this Friday evening from around 5-10pm. Son's marching band is going to put the show on the field for the first time and excitement is running high.
After that I might just welcome the rain as it will force me to accomplish chores inside the house.

The Glory is scheduled to be in Key West on the 11th of September. This is one port I do not want to miss. I sure hope this storm sputters out before then.

What do you think?

I'm not into predicting weather like some of you are. Do you think any of these will effect the New England states, say the week of Sept 11th? My first cruise, I'd rather that not be an issue.

9-10-05- Triumph- New York to Halifax

The main reason I had cancelled the Glory..Hurricane season.I hope you guys won't be affected so much. The Disney cruise I am taking at the end of the month can go anywhere as youngest daughter and I booked it for the ship and entertainment.

I'm really hoping nothing decides to come to Florida on September 2... that's when I'm flying to Europe...

Cheers,

Lee isn't a declared hurricane yet, according the national hurricane center. Let's hope she just fizzles out before then!

Lee is coming off the coast of Africa and it does not look good.

Hi John,
Can we actually see a hurricane that is over there, get here? Just getting a little worried about our Sept. 10th cruise, so any info that you have, I'd love to hear.

Thanks John

Living in Florida I auctually laughed out loud when I read that they predicted Lee to be hitting Key West on September 11th!

Thats over 2 weeks away! There is NO way to tell if it will even come close to Key West, let alone on that exact day.

Hopefully I can miss Friday at school because of Katerina.

Dan THANK YOU!

You restored my trust in humanity!!!

There is no way that anyone can predict that Lee will actually form let alone where it will be exactly two weeks from now. In fact, Lee will probably have formed, fizzled out, and be gone by the time of the Glory cruise.

Ray knew immediately I was pulling everyone's leg, so did Dan. The rest of you need to do some research. :-)

But, I have to admit, it was fun coming home from work and seeing all these responses. :-))

BTW, here is the current status on the "next" storm:

SATELLITE IMAGES INDICATE THAT THE SHOWER ACTIVITY ASSOCIATED WITH
THE TROPICAL WAVE LOCATED ABOUT 1200 MILES EAST OF THE NORTHERN
LEEWARD ISLANDS IS GRADUALLY BECOMING BETTER ORGANIZED. THIS
SYSTEM HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BECOME A TROPICAL DEPRESSION ON
THURSDAY...AS IT MOVES TOWARD WEST-NORTHWEST OVER THE OPEN
ATLANTIC.

Okay, Marc - you pulling everyone's leg again!!!

"SATELLITE IMAGES INDICATE THAT THE SHOWER ACTIVITY ASSOCIATED WITH

The current activity has Tropical STORM Katrina near Nassau!!!

It's not nice to fool with Mother Nature or the weather reports.

BJ is right, Marc. You definitely need help. My plan when we see each other on the 9th is to lead an "intervention" at the restaurant in order to lead you away from your life of tomfoolery (or marcfoolery). Of course, if the news on that date indicates that Lee has really become a hurricane and is actually nearing Key West, then I will consider cancelling the healing session and giving you an award for being "amateur meteorologist of the year". In the meantime (as Thomas is often told), "Go to your room!" lol

Jack
