@Ray: Tornadoes are very common in the rain bands of tropical systems. Most typically they are not as strong as tornadoes that you see in the midwest, but more in the EF 0 - EF 1 range. They can still be life threatening and we will remain on air during all tornado warnings to keep you up to date should any occur.
@Ben: We have a chance for scattered showers and a few thunderstorms on Friday, and higher rain chances on Saturday, but no more (at this point) than a typical summer weekend. If the forecast changes we will let you know.
@Capt. Steve: Invite the boss along! :)
@Jh: Keys could be nicer than here depending on how the storm maintains composure post Hispanola passage.
@Ben: As of right now we are going with partly to mostly cloudy and windy with scattered showers and t-storms possible. So, maybe some breaks of sunshine, but plenty of clouds around too.
There are just a few more moments left in this edition of our live Chantal web chat....
I have to get ready for the midday show, so I will talk to you all tomorrow.
