We’re not talking about Tropical Storm Fred, we’re talking about what’s next. Before we get to that, here’s the latest update on Fred, which is about to ruin our weekend.
The next one, currently listed as Potential Tropical Cyclone Seven, will likely be named “Grace”. Yes, a storm capable of flooding and destruction is named “Grace”. Fun, huh. The storm is taking a similar path as Fred, with Puerto Rico, DR, Haiti, and Cuba keeping the storm from getting too big. Also, the storm is moving fast, another thing working against it. If this thing comes into our neighborhood that would make two tropical storms in 5 days. We could see some serious flooding in SWFL, especially Cape Coral, which has been flooding recently even before these two storms.
Still a ways out, and things could change. Here’s a look at the models:
We have PTC #7 now from Invest 95 out in the Atlantic. Fresh spaghetti models here on https://t.co/3cvwpvVJ22. Kinda taking the same general path as Fred. Fast forward speed with this one. Tropical Storm watches for the northern Lesser Antilles already. https://t.co/Hk3pbO7x8H pic.twitter.com/nImKLFu3uk— Mike's Weather Page (@tropicalupdate) August 13, 2021
