Quieter Weather Coming

March 17, 2014; 7:30 PM ET

I am @AccuFrank on Twitter, which is the most reliable way to get alerted when I post new stuff. There's also the Facebook fan page. New posts here are not ready until I say they are ready via Twitter/Facebook.

I meant to mention that there were a few severe storm reports today, all around Tampa and all for wind. There is a tornado watch out for a part of the peninsula this evening, but I think the severe threat is diminishing now that it's getting dark and the severe storm threat is low going forward.

  • Relative Quiet Now, More Active This Weekend

    September 2, 2015; 6:15 PM ET

    While we have a quiet setup down south right now, fronts moving in over the next week or so will make it get more active. The tropics remain busy but there are no big threats close to home.

    It looks as though a front will move in and stall Friday through this weekend, causing wet weather for Labor Day Weekend in a lot of places. The tropics remain active but there's little threat to us.

  • Relative Quiet This Week

    With Fred staying far away and Erika fallen apart, we'll see relatively tranquil weather across the South until Friday when a front moves into the Southeast.

  • Crazy Talk About Erika

    August 28, 2015; 1:30 AM ET

    I'm dedicating all my time today to Erika, who seems to aspire to be the Laurel Thatcher Ulrich of the tropical cyclone world. Hopefully, I seem insightful and not as crazy as I fear I do.

  • A Nice Spell For Now, Erika Could Be A Problem

    August 25, 2015; 12:30 AM ET

    High pressure nosing in will bring nice weather to much of the South for the next few days. Florida stays fairly active, though, and tropical moisture moving in plus possible Erika effects means Florida gets even wetter starting this weekend.

  • Nice Spell For Many, Potential Tropical Troubles Lurk

    August 24, 2015; 10:30 PM ET

    A string of quiet and pleasant days are coming for many. But, an influx of tropical moisture is coming to some areas this weekend and we have to watch a developing system in the Atlantic.
