Well this is peachy. We are now under a tropical storm watch. I can't really believe Tropical Storm Laura is going to amount to much but I've been wrong before on this rather touchy subject. After Hurricane Irma I guess we will all be a bit touchy and now we have the coronavirus stuff to deal with as well it all seems rather too much. I'm working through Monday, I've put our outdoor stuff away so all I have to do is figure out how to get to and from work without being blown over.
The National Hurricane Center definition of a watch is as follow:
A Tropical Storm Watch is issued when a tropical cyclone containing winds of 34 to 63 kt (39 to 73 mph) or higher poses a possible threat, generally within 48 hours. These winds may be accompanied by storm surge, coastal flooding, and/or river flooding. The watch does not mean that tropical storm conditions will occur.
