Hurricane update - 31 October (II)

Note for those in southeastern Florida: the windadvisory and galewarning is likely to be replaced by a tropical storm warning. The current high winds are an indirect effect of Noel, as they result from a sharp pressure gradient between the cyclone and a system of high pressure over the eastern US. As Noel moves north over the Bahamas, the direct winds (which extend 115 miles from the centre) may affect southeastern Florida.

  1. Never have tried to trick or treat in a tropical storm.  Hope Noel's through with the Bahamas before Friday (friends go honeymooning in the general vicinity).  Okay, so I hope no Bahamians are hurt, either.
