Wednesday Night Tropics Upate

The storm surge watch has been changed to a storm surge warning from indian pass, Florida to clearwater beach, Florida.

Tropical storm and storm surge warnings are in effect for parts of the Gulf Coast, from Louisiana to Florida, with Nestor expected to bring tropical-storm-force winds and life-threatening storm surge to the coast as it approaches later on Friday. It's a fast moving storm so by late Saturday into Sunday, we will be drying things out. This storm is going to be inland in the panhandle of Florida by Saturday morning. Its outer edges earlier brought heavy rain to portions of southern Mexico.

According to the National Hurricane Center, the depression now has an 80% chance of strengthening into a tropical storm, and if it does, it will be named "Tropical Storm Nestor". It gives officials the opportunity to send out watches and warnings in advance of the storm actually forming. It has top sustained winds of 40 miles per hour and is moving to the northeast at 14 miles per hour.

The weather service said areas south of Interstate 10 have the greatest chance of seeing minimal tropical storm force winds and wind gusts.
