Well, Tropical Storm Fred was kind of a non-issue for SXM, but there is another orange X crossing the Atlantic.... duh

Doesn't look like it will amount to much but time will tell.

No way to tell right now, but it's listed at 40%. Track looks to be at least close to SXM, if it develops.

I'm happy to be far south at the moment, if I were in SXM I'd be inside the lagoon somewhere and following each NOAA update carefully so I could escape outside during on the bridge openings...

I don't blame you for being far south. It seems like every year there are more and more storms. Just glad that you were finally able to get the h*ll out of the BVI. Following your trevails of trying to get clearance to leave was nerve wracking to me. Can't imagine what it was for you!

Martini--No, not as far as I can see no tropical storm watch for Sint Maarten, as of yet...

From the 11 AM advisory .......... "The government of Antigua and Barbuda has issued a Tropical Storm
Watch for Antigua and Barbuda, St. Kitts and Nevis, and Montserrat.

The government of the Netherlands has issued a Tropical Storm Watch
for Saba and Sint Eustatius.

SUMMARY OF WATCHES AND WARNINGS IN EFFECT:

A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for...
* Antigua and Barbuda, St. Kitts and Nevis, and Montserrat
* Saba and Sint Eustatius"

Hopefully won't be too big a deal, as it's a really small storm, only 25 miles across of tropical storm winds, as of now.

Tropical Storm Grace is a potential threat no matter how small and 6 inches of rain predicted for SXM can cause dangerous flooding in prone areas. Haiti just had a major earthquake this morning and any storm would not be good for that poor island.

Boaters need to be prepared to take action with storm.

Closest approach is now 100 miles south at 5 something tomorrow morning. This is good news for us. Just had a little rain shower.

Pretty much a non event here. A little wind and rain but nothing too bad. Going to be a little rain off and on today.

The maho beach cam looks pretty cloudy, but not even any rain at the moment. Good deal!
