A beautiful day, although on the hot and humid side. Spent the morning at the Independence Day parade and out and about doing errands this afternoon that we usually do on Sunday. Day off today and my boys were marching. Impressive display of military and police on display with some of their new toys and a sky full of drones filming everything.

Looks like a typical insult thread to me. Kind of chilly but still humid here.

From the National Hurricane Center:

"Some additional strengthening is possible this evening before the
outer eyewall becomes better defined or the cyclone reaches its
maximum potential intensity.
It now appears likely that Maria will
be at category 5 intensity when it moves over the U. S. Virgin
Islands and Puerto Rico, although there is a chance that the start
of the eyewall replacement cycle might reduce the intensity a little
bit. The hurricane should weaken as it crosses Puerto Rico, and
after that proximity to Hispaniola and less favorable upper-level
winds are likely to lead to continued slow weakening. The new
intensity forecast remains at the upper edge of the intensity"
guidance.

Does that mean what it sounds like???

It means that we should all pray for that eyewall replacement cycle to start right before it hits or it is going to be a strong cat 5. When it says "maximum potential intensity", it means the max that it is predicted to be (as strong as it is going to get), not that it is going into new territory of intensities. Again, hope and pray for that ERC and/or a wobble.

Yes. Hurricane/rainy season. Also low season for tourism. It is the time of year when you can get good deals but take the chance that it could rain your entire stay.

I see one over the tip of Florida (on NHC.) Weather has not been all that wet here at Merida, but we have had some afternoon/evening rains. Pretty normal rainy season pattern.

Developing over the next few days - fairly low chance, 30% over the next five days - maybe it will have drifted into the Gulf of Mexico over the next new days. Of course, it could remain stationary.
