When to plant what & how in Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama.

In October the planting frenzy continues for all of the state of Florida, while we harvest the last tastes of summer. It's time to turn compost into your garden, improve soil & throw seed to the ground. Don't forget to rotate your crops, for example..legumes (beans/peas), followed by heavy eaters like corn/tomatoes, then root crops & leafy greens. Surround with herbs & flowers when possible. Below is what each part of Florida should plant from seed this month.

North FL beets, Broccoli, cabbage, Carrots, cauliflower, collards, kale, Kohlrabi, Lettuce, Mustard, onions, radish, spinach, strawberry, turnips.

Central FL beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, collards, kale, kohlrabi, lettuce, mustard, onions, english peas, radish, spinach, strawberry, turnips.

South FL all beans, beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, califlower, celery, collards, corn, cucumber, eggplant, Kale, kohlrabi, lettuce, mustard, onions, all peas, peppers, potatoes, radish, spinach, summer squash, strawberry, tomato, turnips.

Cyclone Alert For Northern Tamil Nadu, Puducherry And Adjoining Southern Andhra Pradesh Coasts

At 18:00 PM UTC, The deep depression over southwest Bay of Bengal moved westward and now lays centered near 9.0N 82.0E, or about 500 km south southeast of Chennai, India and 100 km east northeast of Trincomalee, Sri Lanka. The system is likely to intensify into a cyclonic storm and move westward for a couple hours and come very close to Sri Lanka coast. The system will then move northwestward and cross northern Tamil Nadu and adjoining southern Andhra Pradesh coast between Nagapattinam and Nellore by the afternoon of October 31st.

Yep, it is truly a big and bad one.. and is rolling over many who just could not believe how big and bad Sandy could be...Word has gone out that two are missing in the waters under Sandy.. I am praying for the crew of the Tall Ship HMS Bounty. It was caught in Hurricane Sandy off the North Carolina Outer Banks. Two crew members are missing while 14 others have been rescued by the Coast Guard. I hope they will be found safe in a lifeboat..

Quoting LakeWorthFinn:
Sandy's may well reach the record (946mb) pressure. An incredible storm.


She is probibly lower than the 939mb lowest modeled.. Recon just found 937.5 mb (~ 27.68 inHg).

This coming high tide this evening should be the worst. So much worst than Irene. Here is some surge info.

11:30 AM IST October 28 2012
==========================================

At 6:00 AM UTC, latest satellite imagery and buoy observations indicate that a depression has formed over southeast and adjoining southwest Bay of Bengal. Depression BOB02-2012 lays near 9.5N 86.0E, or 730 km southeast of Chennai, India 550 km east northeast of Trincomalee, Sri Lanka. The system would intensify into a deep depression and move initially westward towards Tamil Nadu coast.

According to satellite imagery, the Dvorak intensity of the system is T1.5. low/medium clouds with embedded intense to very intense convection seen over Bay of Bengal between 7.0N and 13.0N and 85.0E to 89.0E. Broken low/medium clouds with embedded moderate to intense convection lies over the rest southeast Bay of Bengal between 5.0N to 7.0N and 85.0E to 90.0E. The associated convection has increased gradually with respect to height and organization during past 12 HRS. The lowest cloud top temperature due to convection is about -70C.

3 minute sustained winds near the center is 25 knots gusting up to 35 knots. The central pressure of the system is 1004 hPa. The state of the sea is rough to very rough around the center of the depression.

The buoy observation around the center of the depression show 20-25 knot wind in the northern sector and about 15 knots in the southern sector. At 6:00 AM UTC, buoy position near 8.1N 85.5E, reported wind of 18 knots and a mean surface level pressure of 1005 hPa. Buoy located near 11.0N 86.5E reported a mean surface level pressure of 1007.5 hPa with winds of 23 knots. Earlier scatterometry data indicated 25-30 knots wind in the northern sector of the system.

Considering the environmental features, the sea surface temperature is about 29-30C. Over south Bay of Bengal. The ocean thermal energy is 50-80 kj/cm square around the system center. It is less towards the north of the system. The Madden Julian Oscillation index currently lies over phase 2. As per statistical and numerical weather prediction model predictions, it is expected to lie in phase 2 during next 3 days. The upper tropospheric ridge lies along 13.0N and hence provides required poleward outflow for intensification of the system. The low level convergence and relative vorticity have increased during past 24 hrs as well as upper level divergence. The vertical wind shear between 200 and 850 HPA levels is moderate (10-20 knots) around system center. However, it increases towards north Tamil Nadu and adjoining sea areas

Skye-
I made sure my rain gauge was empty when I was working in my yard two days ago. I did not check it again until this morning. I measured 2.16" for the entire storm so far, and although there is still a lot of rain just several miles offshore I think we are just about done with the winds offshore now. It always amazes me how different it can be beachside compared to just a few miles away on the mainland.

Finn~ Still pouring. Good sleeping weather.

Already feeling chilly out there. First big cool down on the way.

Shep~ You better duck.. If any would have survived it, it would have been that one. Trying not to ruin another camera in rain here..

Wab~ Skye don't mind the storm. He's always been good & stoic for even Jeanne. It's Buster that is the fraidy barn collapse survivor. Locked him in a few hours this morning & he's doing much better.

Hades~ Arabian Sea looks open & eager for cyclones.

Rob~ Thanks. I'm hoping the best for the north. They should really prepare.

Another wild possibility in this is the low that has developed off the far NE..the one that should help position the high in such a way to push Sandy in to the NE..Fresh OSCAT of that forming..


Now check out how GFS takes it from cold-core to a warm-core storm as it travels ESE across the Atlantic, even though it's above the 26º mark. This makes me think of those odd shallow storms in that area that we have seen feed on moderate shear.

Sheesh Skye! You're under relentless pounding, hope all well there.

Here, it's almost over. Temps will fall to low 50's in the next days. Will be nice to wear a SWEATER for a change. Aaaahh!
