Tuesday: Umbrella afternoon
In the wake of all of the recent tropical activity, from Fred, Grace and Henri a trail of deep tropical moisture extends over south Georgia and North Florida. This has been responsible for our back to back scattered severe storms on Sunday and Monday afternoons. This moisture will be on the wane Wednesday as our wind pattern shifts to an onshore (easterly) wind pattern on Wednesday.
Wet work week ahead
Forecast models are not in great agreement in terms of our weather. A number of them want to dry us out rather quickly. I suggest we need to be alert to multiple rounds of rain. On the face of it, the amounts will not be all that, another 1-3″ between tonight into Tuesday evening. The trouble is we are super saturated and even moderate rainfall at this point will cause some localized flooding.

The National Hurricane Center is also monitoring another area of low pressure. Designated 95L, this is located around 14°N 47°W or about 1000 miles east of the Leeward Islands (pretty far out in the Atlantic). It is also racing westward at nearly 20 mph. This fast motion is most likely keeping the National Hurricane Center on “pause” mode from classifying this as the next potential tropical cyclone.
Tom Hanks reveals exact moment he knew he wanted to play Mister Rogers
TORONTO - Tom Hanks hadn't really watched "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" until a few years ago. Hanks watched as host Fred Rogers gently spoke to a young boy in a wheelchair named Jeffrey Erlanger. The movie, from screenwriters Micah Fitzerman-Blue and Noah Harpster, showcases Rogers' endearing personality and positive attitude -- and Hanks said that's exactly what we need today. "I think cynicism has become the default position for so much of daily structure and daily intercourse," he added. That you are not cool because you don't have this toy, that it's funny to see somebody being bopped on the head, that hey, kids be the first in line in order to get blah, blah, blah.
