It makes sense that the the posting requirement will increase as active members increase there post count. The initial values were high and we all generally are in agreement in the current settings.

...TROPICAL STORM JETMAXX FORMS JUST WEST OF ATLANTA.....

.....TROPICAL STORM WARNINGS ARE VALID AT 7 PM EDT....23Z FOR THE CHATTAHOOCHEE RIVER FROM NORTH OF FRANKLIN GEORGIA TO SOUTH OF LAKE LANIER....A TROPICAL STORM WATCH IS VALID AT 7 PM FOR LAKE ALLATOONA AND WEST POINT LAKE....

.....AT 7 PM....23Z...TROPICAL STORM JETMAXX WAS LOCATED NEAR LATITUDE 33.7 NORTH AND LONGITUED 84.7 WEST, OR ABOUT 20 MILES WEST OF ATLANTA, GEORGIA....MOVEMENT IS STATIONARY, AND LITTLE MOVEMENT IS FORECAST DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS...

....MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS ARE 40 MPH WITH HIGHER GUSTS....JETMAXX IS A POORLY ORGANIZED STORM AND ONLY SLOW STRENGTHENING IS EXPECTED....

...ALL INTERESTS IN THE WESTERN PORTION OF THE ATLANTA AREA SHOULD CLOSELY MONITOR THE PROGRESS OF JETMAXX :lol: :lol: :lol:
