Dennis now a depression as clean-up begins; Flooding, power outages throughout Tallahassee region; Dennis may interfere with shuttle launch; T.D. Five candidate for E; Countdown begins for milestone launch

WXnation.com radar at 12 a.m. CDT Mon. Links to live imageDennis Update: Thankfully, Dennis is only a depression now, but it is forecast to slow down over the Ohio and Tennessee valleys for a few days, bringing the continued threat of flooding. Dennis was 10 mph weaker than Hurricane Ivan at landfall, and moved out of the area much faster. The Tropical Prediction Center did a great job of forecasting Dennis’ track. A couple of stories: Mop-up begins after Dennis sweeps Gulf Coast | Dennis now a tropical depression | Flooding, power outages throughout Tallahassee region … Get the latest watches, warnings and advisories, and much more on Dennis in yesterday’s post below (and in the right column)

Candidate for “E”: Tropical Depression Five may become Emily, and the forecast track has it possibly affecting the U.S. a week from now. Resources: Get the latest updated data from the Tropical Prediction Center in the red box to the right (below Dennis info). Also, check out the Atlantic satellite images

Thanks to Jeff Jarvis and the folks at MSNBC for mentioning this blog Friday on Connected Coast to Coast

After watching hours of media coverage on Dennis online (the best being the local Mobile/Pensacola and Panama City TV station online streams that are still in yesterday’s links — very well done, and nice quality), it was nice to see this calming picture posted at SpaceWeather.com

U.S. Gulf Coast prepares for landfall of Tropical Storm Cindy; 2 tropical storms form today, head for U.S.; Storm brewing in the Gulf Of Me; Storms bring tornadoes, hail to South Carolina; Amazing lightning bolt image from D.C.; Whoops!; NASA cheers comet blast; Indonesian earthquake triggers local tsunami warning

Check out the latest data and images automatically updated from the Tropical Prediction Center in the red box to the right. Story: Tropical storm watch issued for La., Miss. and more stories.

2 Tropical Storms Form Today: Two tropical depressions became tropical storms Tuesday, and both are heading for the United States. TD #3 is now Cindy, and TD #4 Dennis, which may head into the Gulf of Mexico as a hurricane by the weekend.

Tropical storm brewing in Gulf … This headline reminds me of an occasion at my daytime TV Web site job. Way back in 2000, my co-worker published a headline that was supposed to read “Storm Brewing In The Gulf Of Mexico” but a line-break in the code cut off the last four letters. For a short while, the story online read, “Storm Brewing In The Gulf Of Me”

Other Weather News: Storms bring tornadoes, hail to South Carolina

I thought I’d snapped an amazing lightning bolt image last month, but this one taken in D.C. by Capital Weather/Weatherbook.com’s Kevin Ambrose is incredible!
