.HYDROLOGY...RIVER LEVELS AT LAKE HARNEY HAVE BEEN STEADY PAST 24
HOURS...WHILE VERY SLOW RISES CONTINUE AT SANFORD AND DELAND.
IT`S IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT EVEN AFTER THE RIVER LEVELS BECOME
STEADY...THE DECREASE IN LEVELS WILL BE VERY SLOW TO OCCUR WITH
SIGNIFICANT FLOODING PROBLEMS WILL PERSIST THROUGH AT LEAST NEXT
WEEK. IN THE SHORTER TERM...AGGRAVATION TO FLOODED AREAS CAN BE
EXPECTED TODAY AND SUNDAY WITH INCREASED PRECIP CHANCES.

WE WILL ALSO NEED TO KEEP A CLOSE EYE AHEAD THROUGH THE END OF NEXT
WEEK WITH RESPECT TO THE EVENTUAL PATH OF TC HANNA...SINCE THE
PRESENT HIGH WATER LEVELS THROUGH CENTRAL FLORIDA COULD BECOME EVEN
MORE PROBLEMATIC SHOULD THE EVENTUAL PATH OF HANNA PLACE EC FL IN
PERSISTENT RAIN BANDS. SEE THE LATEST FLOOD STATEMENT /MIAFLSMLB/
FOR LATEST INFORMATION ON FLOODING ON THE ST JOHNS RIVER.

...HANNA COULD IMPACT EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA LATE IN WEEK...

HAGEMEYER

Our overall weather pattern changed, with the bermuda high setting us up with givibg us fresh easterly flow that increases night & morning coastal showers & moves the afternoon severe weather more inland. Also makes us very vunerable to the Cape Verde storms. PWATs (water in the air) is high as well so increased rain & with the presure gradiant between storms, bring on the breeze.

Fay, Fay go away...

As Fay clears our overall weather pattern should switch with the bermuda high setting us up with an easterly flow that would increase night & morning coastal showers & move the afternoon severe weather more inland. Also makes us very vunerable to the Cape Verde storms.
