Hazardous Weather Outlook
National Weather Service Tampa Bay Area - Ruskin Fl
501 Am Edt Wed Aug 11 2004

501 Am Edt Wed Aug 11 2004

This Hazardous Weather Outlook Is For West Central And Southwest
Florida.

...tropical Cyclone Charley Headed For The Suncoast By Friday...

...tropical Storm Or Hurricane Watches Or Warnings Will Likely Be
Issued Later Today...

.day One...today:

Only Isolated To Scattered Afternoon And Early Evening Thunderstorms
Are Expected Today. Primary Threats Will From Stronger Cells Will Be
Frequent Cloud To Ground Lightning...brief Torrential Rains...and
Wind Gusts To 30 Mph.

.days Two Through Seven...thursday Through Tuesday:

...synopsis...
Tropical Cyclone Charley Will Continue Moving Quickly Through The
Northwestern Caribbean Sea Today And Tonight...and Emerge Off The
Western Cuba Coast Thursday Afternoon. Overnight Thursday...the
Storm Is Expected To Turn To The North And Northeast...and Should
Make Landfall On The Suncoast Early Friday.

The Primary Hazards From This Storm Will Be Wind Damage...as Well As
Storm Surge Over And South Of Where Charley Makes Landfall. Heavy
Rains And Minor Flooding Are A Secondary Hazard...but The Speed Of
The Storm Should Limit The Extent And Amount Of Heavy Rains On The
Suncoast.

...expected Wind Hazards...
Fast Moving Storms Such As Charley Can Produce Damaging Winds In A
Short Period Of Time. On Its Current Track...tropical Storm Force
Winds Will Affect Southwest Florida Perhaps Before Midnight Thursday
Night And Continue Rapidly Up The Coast Before Daybreak Friday.
Hurricane Force Sustained Winds And Gusts Are Possible Very Near
Where The Center Makes Landfall...especially In The Eastern
Semicircle Of The Storm.

Widespread Minor To Moderate Wind Damage Is A Real Possibility With
This Storm...even Well Inland.

...storm Surge...
The Fast Movement Of The Storm Will Cause The Potential For A Rapid
Rise In Water Levels Along And To The South Of Where The Center
Crosses Land. There Is Still A Great Deal Of Uncertainty Exactly
Where The Center Will Cross...as The Potential Exists For The Storm
To Track Very Close To The Coast Before Swinging Inland. Coastal
Residents...including Those On Prone Areas Of Tampa Bay And Charlotte
Harbor...should Be Prepared For A Possible Evacuation.

...heavy Rains...
The Fast Movement Will Likely Limit Storm Total Rainfall To 3 Inches
Or Less. However...the Ground Remains Saturated Across Portions Of
The Central Suncoast...and Additional Widespread Rains Of 1 Inch Or
More May Exacerbate The Flood Potential On Rain Swollen Rivers And
Low Lying Or Poor Drainage Areas.

.spotter Call To Action Statement...

Spotter Activation Is Likely Thursday Night And Friday As Charley
Sweeps Across The Suncoast.

Dennis Phillips, weather news caster, told a friend of mine that this is the first time he has ever booked a room in case of a storm. He thinks this one will get us. Dave
