Just About Jerry


Low pressure 100 miles south of Apalachicola early Friday morning was doing its best to become the 10th named storm of the hurricane season, but as of the 5:30am update the National Hurricane Center reported the storm was not yet fully tropical. Still, areas around the gulf coast of Florida have been dealing with severe thunderstorms throughout the early morning with reports of possible tornadoes in Lake County in north central Florida and Franklin County on the Florida panhandle near Apalachicola. The severe weather is never welcome, but the showers are actually good news for this part of the country. Apalachicola is 17.74″ below normal precipitation for the year. Buoys in the gulf are reporting wind gusts to 30 mph with 8 foot waves. Conditions appear favorable for this storm to continue to intensify as it tracks northwest toward the Mississippi and Louisiana coastline.
