With all this wind, there were plenty of watches, warnings and advisories out. It was a chance to see how the automated NWS watch/warning page did.
Usually, it’s pretty good. Today, as my friend Bob Hart (safely and warmly in Florida) pointed out, it probably read text about hurricane strength winds, put 2 and 2 together and got 5!
Take a look at this afternoon’s map. Trust me – there was no hurricane.
