Doesn't look like a break for a while from he forecast I saw.  Just like Florida but lighter on the COVID 19.

Come to Florida where the weather is grand. And we have lots of COVID to go around.

weather.com currently predicting 90+ highs through the 29th (Wednesday of next week), then the period 30th July through 4th August will have highs of 'only' 87 through 89, then the 90+ highs resume on the 5th (latest day for which they have forecasts.

I miss the ballpark, but something tells me that matchdays with Charlie and Dave on the radio and working A/C and plenty of Heineken, now more than ever, will prove a most satisfying substitute.

You and 2IPA's stay safe, Mathguy...this could be a nasty storm.  Virginia is already under a state of emergency and you are smack in the middle of most paths I've seen.

Shelter conditions with Covid-19 are going to be interesting, to say the least...

My 19 year old daughter and her friend drove down to Myrtle Beach yesterday. Needless to say, I am keeping an eye on the weather reports as well.

We’re in MB and will drive tomorrow to Orlando. Should be fine. Storm seems to be moving quickly which is a good thing.  Probably come back here later this week to assess any damage.

EDIT. Gonna keep a look out for the Marlins bus.

Latest update looks like more of a direct hit on eastern FL

Thank you both for your thoughts and insight on the scene in MB.  My biggest concern is that my daughter will act like a typical teen (you know, immortal and indestructible) and ignore warnings about riptides. She can see waves that are too big or wind and rain that's too strong, but she's never experienced a riptide. When I lived in Okinawa, they tended to kill several Marines a year.

Tell her to stay at the pool.

Approaching Georgia and haven’t spotted them. Need to find the nearest strip club.

for research purposes only.  Apparently, the Fish have migrated back to Miami.  I think they are going to do a good will tour of the evacuation shelters and hug those there.

Looks like Florida dodged a small caliber bullet.  The storm has been losing intensity and may miss the OBX entirely...

The Fashionable West End of Henrico County is battening down the hatches for a good, long rain storm...with the first wave starting this afternoon...and continuing much of Tuesday.

this is going to be the first big storm since the basement flooded last year - fingers crossed this time around

Looking at weather.com's hourly forecast it seems to be letting up just a bit in this area too. We're still to get quite a bit of rain but regular wind speeds won't go over the 20mph range, and after 14.00 tomorrow the chance of rain stays below 50% for the rest of the day. We might even be able to get the Mets opener in tomorrow, as long as the ground isn't too waterlogged.
