    Nws Tpc/National Hurricane Center Miami Fl


    Statement as of 10:30 PM EDT on June 09, 2006




    For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico...

    A broad area of low pressure centered between Honduras and westernCuba has changed little in organization during the past few hours.However...conditions appear to be favorable for this system tobecome a tropical depression or a tropical storm during the next 12to 24 hours. This system is expected to move northward acrossextreme western Cuba and the Yucatan Channel bringing squalls andadditional rains to the Cayman Islands and portions of Cuba. An AirForce reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate thissystem tomorrow afternoon...if necessary.

    All interests in the northwestern Caribbean Sea and the southeasternGulf of Mexico should closely monitor the progress of this system.Because development could occur near Cuba at any time onSaturday...a tropical storm watch or warning may be required forportions of western Cuba.

    Elsewhere...tropical storm formation is not expected throughSunday.

    It is not coming here because I can't afford it too. LOL I really do not want another hurricane. The past 2 yrs have been nightmares for me and my family.

    Comparing our weather from a couple of hours it went from rain in 10 days to rain in 7. Guess this is expected to move on out after we get some showers?

    (STATE COLLEGE) - As residents of the Gulf Coast swelter under the sun this weekend, all eyes along the Gulf Coast will be on a broad area of low pressure in the northwestern Caribbean. Pressures near the coast of Belize have been lowering in the past 36 hours and there is some concern that as this area of low pressure continues to move toward the northwest and away from the Yucatan Peninsula, it will encounter an environment where conditions will be more favorable for further development due to warm water. However, just how the upper-level winds are going to behave is still somewhat of a question. Nevertheless, if the upper-level winds become more favorable, there is the possibility of a tropical system developing over the weekend and moving into the central Gulf of Mexico by Monday.

    I hope we get some kind of rain - and soon!!!! I think it's rained like twice in the last 60 or more days. I'm tired of watering everything by hand.

    Now for the big debate (oh, by the way, I'm on the Gulf side of Florida) - anyway, I think we need a new roof and the BIG QUESTION IS ---

    do I hang tight and wait to see if a hurricaine blows it off OR do I get a new one NOW and wait to see if a hurricaine blows it off?

    We have a roofer coming by next week to tell me how bad he thinks it is, but I'm gonna be so po'd if we get a new one and the BIG ONE HITS HERE!

    So often times it happens that we live our life in chains, and we never even know we have the key. ...Eagles, "Already Gone"

    Looks like the gulf needs to pay attention to this early storm.
