    Anyone watching it? Looks like it might create some surf thursday-Saturday here in Southern North Carolina...

    Isn't it still in the gulf, just north of the Yucatan? Come on man, the jinx is a real thing.

    Don't get too excited...way overcalled today. Was supposed to be solid starting today and was very weak.

    Yeah it was weak as hell, Still found a decent sandbar to get a few but typical gulf skunking, guess we officially can start summer.

    Although tomorrow may produce, we'll see

    As suspected, the swell hit today finally, in the chest to head range at the best spots...just gotta deal with some wind / rain periodically, too bad I took off yesterday and not today (wife had surgery, had to)

    Sorry to hear about your wife...hope she is ok.
    I did score about three hours of excellent surf towards the end of the day(Thursday). Nice spot with mucho wind protection.

    If it even take the East Coast path, I doubt we will get anything but rain.

    This radar looks like some rotation developing just off the SW FL coast

    From flhurricane.com. :

    As of early this morning, here are the bullet points:
    91L's structure is a blend of subtropical and marginally tropical
    91L's weather continues to be most pronounced on its eastern half
    Conditions for development have turned from unfavorable to marginally favorable
    Conditions for development are forecast to become even better over the next day or two

    The broad low pressure area being tracked as Invest 91L has been struggling to organize over the past several days, but conditions are now staring to become marginally favorable for subtropical or tropical development.

    As of early Wednesday morning, 91L still consists of a broad surface circulation with multiple, competing swirls about an axis of lower pressure, but this could be starting to change.

    Late last night convection started flaring up a little closer to the center, and not so far removed as to be completely auxiliary. Concurrent with this event, pressures have been falling, and wind speeds rising. More recently, night vision IR imagery suggests that a center reformation may be trying to take place closer to the deepest convection. Any one of these by itself may not mean much, but taken together, this is characteristic of a sloppy system getting better organized.

    The driving forces that have been holding 91L in check are starting to relax, with both shear and dry air decreasing. With upper level winds now aligning themselves a little with the lower levels, 91L is starting to take on a somewhat classic subtropical cyclone look.

    At the surface, observations show winds now up to around 35 MPH sustained, with higher gusts. Most of the strongest winds are occurring well removed from 91Ls estimated center, which is also consistent with subtropical cyclones. In fact, a ship report from roughly 350 miles to its east recently reported winds of up to 49 MPH in a thunderstorm.

    Recon is tentatively scheduled to fly through Invest 91L later today.
