    Early rain maker, not much more than that. That said, it's gonna be a soaker this weekend here in Tampa. Probably 4-6" territory, localized higher.

    Are you relocating your house to high ground?

    Hah, nope. Feel bad for a friend flying down from NY though, so much for that beach time they were hoping for.

    Take him to a Shelter during the storm and show him Florida Man.

    Or just go to a Republican fundraiser.

    Bring your kiddies, bring your wife.

    Maybe leave the pets home, though.

    And if you drink, call an Uber.

    From what I've seen from those that know more about this stuff than I, it depends where it tracks. Going to be a very (East-wet/west-mostly dry) halved storm.

    Mostly just dry air getting sucked into it from Oklahoma/Texas. All I know is it's gonna rain for me regardless of where this thing goes.

    Waiting for ScottK to come in and shame us all into oblivion for something or other.

    Probably very near where Nate made landfall late last summer near Biloxi, MS.
