  • Tropical Storm Warning for Apalachicola and the eastern FL Panhandle Coast

Mindy is a “take your awnings in” tropical storm.

Tropical Storm Mindy formed close to the FL Panhandle Coast Wednesday afternoon. As of Wednesday evening, Mindy was 75 miles west-southwest of Apalachicola FL, moving to the northeast at 21 mph. Maximum sustained winds are 45 mph. Mindy will make landfall on the eastern FL Panhandle later tonight.

Mindy’s main threat is gusty winds of 40-50 mph along the coast, then along the I-10 corridor to Jacksonville by morning. Most rainfall amounts will be 2 inches or less so there is limited flash flooding potential. There will be little, if any, storm surge along the coast.

Mindy will be offshore east of the GA/FL coastline by midday Thursday.

Apart from a stormy night tonight, Mindy should not seriously impact RV’ers or RVing plans. If you were planning on towing along I-10 tonight between Tallahassee and Jacksonville, you might want to delay towing until Thursday morning.

As always, please follow the advice of local Emergency Management officials and stay alert for any Flash Flood Warnings issued for your location.
