Noel Update; Welcome Alabama, Kentucky

Tropical Storm Noel is moving over western Cuba and is dropping extremely heavy rainfall over Hispanola.

The storm has been moving a bit further west than previously anticipated, which means once it emerges over water and takes a northerly turn, it could graze south Florida over the next 48 hours.

We'll wait and see.

There are about a dozen or so CoCoRaHS observers along the southeast Florida coast so if Noel does move in, we should see some great precipitation data.

Meanwhile, speaking of data, we are now getting reports from both Alabama and Kentcuky. Welcome observers!

The weather is quiet nationwide, with most reporting stations dry yesterday and today. That is actually pretty typical of this time of the year, but it won't be long before the jet stream arrives in the US and hangs around for several weeks, bringing active winter weather, including the wet season to southern California.

It is getting cooler and cooler with each passing day. I noticed there were frost and freeze advisories scattered around the nation this morning, including across portions of Tennessee and North Carolina.
