The tropics are becoming more active. The Gabrielle is near Bermuda and if giving the island tropical storm conditions. Here’s Bermuda radar. It’ll head toward far eastern Canada (Nova Scotia). Hurricane Humberto should be no threat to land. For only the second time in modern history, we had to wait until Sept. 11 to get the season’s first hurricane. The latest we have ever gone before getting the season’s first hurricane was Sept. 11, 2002. The system that will cross the Yucatan (moving west) may or may not get a name and produce some heavy rain as it comes across the Yucatan in Mexico. It’s been a very quiet year weatherwise (no hurricances – until Sept. 11), few tornadoes, few hundred-degree temperatures than average, heat waves “fewer and milder this year than last”.
Here’s the latest from the Storm Prediction Center. The overnight run of the NAM (caribou) model gives G.R. 0.26″ of rain between 5 PM and midnight today. with highs in the mid-upper 80s today, upper 70s Thurs., low 60s Friday and a low of 32.8 Saturday morning.
