5. Let's say a TD that dumps just enough rain over a few days to give the folks a break.

6. The problem with Texas is...the rain will probably stop at the drought line

so...the Gulf Coast will get soaked.And Midland won't get squat.

7. long way off yet, still a TD

A disheveled Tropical Depression Five is clinging to life in the face of stiff wind shear and dry air, as the storm heads towards the Lesser Antilles Islands with a forward speed of 20 mph. The depression is very ragged looking on visible satellite loops. The depression has only a small area of heavy thunderstorms, which are on the south side of the center due to high wind shear and dry air on the northern side of the storm. Wind shear over TD 5 is at the moderate level, 15 - 20 knots. Water vapor satellite loops show that TD 5 is at the southern edge of a large area of dry air. Wind shear due to strong upper level winds from the west is driving this dry air into the core of the storm, disrupting it.

9. Yucatan?

The forecast takes the storm into the Caribbean and generally keeps it there, until possibly later in the period. Odds still favor the storm staying in the Caribbean, possibly affecting Central America or the Yucatan mid to late next week. If the system stays weak (very possible as there are quite a few blocks for development as it enters the east Caribbean), it is more likely to continue on the westerly track.

13. S. FL might get wetter sooner

91L is now being track southeast of Florida. This was the wave mentioned early in the week, and now has a 20% chance for development over the next 48 hours as it brings enhanced rainfall to central and south Florida now through the weekend

18. Let's hope it does rain before the farmers go to the fields to harvest. Give them a few dry days for

the harvest. I remember how muddy the cut tobacco got if it rained after it is cut, but before it was housed.

19. As long as the private weather forecasting companies can bribe Rep lawmakers, funding

will be in doubt.
