well, we are tracking truck will store s I is right now. It is still down in South Florida, just moving, and that’s going to create some guesting with not only in South Florida, but it’s already creating some gusty winds here. So here’s a look outside a Melbourne right now, starting to see another rain band working its way through chapter still on the warmer side. But look at that. Sustained when at 17 MPH, it’s gusting as high as about 25 MPH right now. So this is the only wind gust that we have at the moment. But those winds will become more gusty as we head on throughout the daytime hours. So working its way in, some outer bands are starting to work its way into central Florida. We have one main band that’s now moving to the Northwest into Evolution County, but now we’re starting to see some or development of the showers and thunderstorms, so getting a better idea pushes to the northwest and to the west. Now we’re starting to get some heavier rain bands and portions of seminal in Orange County, also in portions of Osceola County, as well, and the rain coverage will increase throughout much of the morning hours. So here’s a better look at Tropical Storm S I. E. S. With sustained winds of 65 MPH. It’s looking like it’s developing a better area of circulation now, just directly west between West Palm Beach. What’s going to happen is with that northwesterly motion, it will push into the area and potentially make landfall sometime. Late morning, potentially early afternoon. So what we track you will have your rainbow. Looks like it may remain off of the coast, just dependent on how closely it moves in west. It could give us a little bit more heavier rainfall in some of our coastal areas, so spotty showers and rain bands will continue to form and push through central Florida throughout the afternoon evening overnight tonight as well. And we could even see some heavier rainfall from Melbourne all the way up to Daytona Beach and in Flagler County because of how dependent on how West this system begins to move back. So by Monday morning, we’ll see. Still see some lingering showers and even some stronger wind gust. 3 p.m. Monday, we’ll start to see this system lift to the north and then eventually will start to return somewhat back to normal by about Tuesday. So it looks like our coastal counties will have the highest rainfall totals anywhere from about 4 to 6 inches more inland. We’re expecting 1/2 inch to an inch of rainfall again. It just depends on how far west that system and that center of circulation moves. That’s also going to be dependent on our wind gusts, so winds will be sustained anywhere from about 15 to 20 MPH this afternoon. Inland noticed, though, along the coast. That’s where we start to get a lot of those gusty or conditions as it slowly begins to ride up the coast not only this afternoon, but tonight into early tomorrow morning and tomorrow afternoon. Some of our northern county still could see some of those gusty conditions stick around before eventually somewhat coming down by Monday evening. So watching storm surge along the coast 2 to 4 feet is certainly possible, and we’re also going to be tracking, of course, that heavier rainfall along the coast as well. So here’s what she needs. No rain increases and wind picks up by this morning and early afternoon, damaging winds along the coast from south, eventually moving up to the north by Sunday night into early Monday morning with more rain, wind and even storm surge. When everything is said and done, it will be expected to return somewhat back to normal by Tuesday.
