*********************************************

UPDATED: Looks like it will pass over Jacksonville, FL; but won't make 45mph.

The record still stands.

Tropical storm watches and warnings are now out for the NE Florida, Georgia, and S Carolina coasts. Current track puts it around the Fla/Ga border late Sunday.

Have to see if the extended track puts rain for us early next week.

But we're now 2/0/0, and the season starts next Friday.
