Tropical Storm Erin update

Published: Thursday, August 15, 2013 at 10:49 AM.

·         Erin is surrounded by a good bubble of moisture and is forecast to strengthen steadily over the next few days

Florida Outlook:

·         While the track and intensity of 92L is still very uncertain at this time one thing we do know for sure is that a rainy and wet pattern has set up over North Florida

·         Over the next five days the panhandle is forecast to see 4 to 5 inches of rain. If a tropical storm were to materialize out of 92L and track toward the gulf coast severe flooding would be a strong possibility. Rainfall totals would double or even triple in the next five days.

·         All interests in Florida should be monitoring 92L because of its potential flooding impacts to the state.

Another update will be sent this afternoon.
