TS Erika Forecast Update for August 27th, 2015
-Tropical Storm Erika in the Eastern Caribbean is disorganized at the moment, but poses a threat to Florida within the next 4-5 days. -While this is a tricky forecast due to Erika's current poor organization and the prospect for land interaction with Hispaniola, Erika is fairly likely to make landfall somewhere in southern or southwestern FL early next week as at least a tropical storm. -The primary impact from Erika in south and central Florida will likely be rain totals of 2-5", but the situation could be carefully monitored as hurricane intensity on approach to Florida is not out of the question. -The Defcon level has been increased to 4 in Florida, the Gulf Coast, and the southeastern U.S. and may be revised higher at the next forecast update.
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. --Aristotle
