South Florida Under Tropical Storm Warning - for Tropical Storm Nicole

This one just hit us out of the clear blue -- a tropical storm south of Cuba is forming right now and will hit South Florida later today - the blue area means that a warning is up.

I live right in the blue landfall area.  And we do not take things lightly here, the stores and gas stations will be jammed now.

Luckily, we are only looking at winds of about 45 mph (fingers crossed) with some higher gusts and tons of rain that is starting now -- but talk about no warning!

The chart below is the one that scares the hell out of you if you live here. These are predictions of wind intensification.  If  HWRF (The Weather Research and Forecast system for hurricane prediction) is to be believed, this can start getting rough here!
