NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL 200 PM EDT SUN JUN 29 2014 corrected tropical depression development status For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico: 1. Satellite wind data and surface observations indicate that the low pressure system located about 230 miles east of St. Augustine, Florida, is gradually becoming better defined as it moves slowly southward to southwestward. Although upper-level winds are only marginally favorable, a tropical depression is expected to form during the next day or two. However, the system's proximity to dry air could inhibit significant development until environmental conditions become more conducive by late Tuesday while the low meanders offshore of the Florida east coast. The Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft that was scheduled to investigate the disturbance this afternoon has been canceled, and the flight has been rescheduled for Monday morning, if necessary. * Formation chance through 48 hours...high...60 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent.

Interesting forecast discussion by the National Weather Service office in Greenville-Spartanburg that covers our area. Severe weather possible several times this week. According to the National Weather Service we could be looking at nighttime severe storms as well which obviously pose more danger when people are asleep and not tuning into the weather happenings because -they're sleeping.
A WET AND STORMY PATTERN WILL SET UP ACROSS THE AREA MONDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY...FOLLOWED BY COOL AND DRIER HIGH PRESSURE BY THE END OF THE WEEK. I particularly like the collision course wording below, hence the title Short term /Monday night through Wednesday night/... as of 235 PM Sunday...nothing in the new guidance to change earlier thinking that we are on a collision course with a very wet and very stormy pattern during the late Monday to Wednesday time frame. Important details such as the timing of enhanced severe thunderstorm threats...and storm total rainfall...still remain in doubt.
