NHC Has New Leader...

NOAA announced this afternoon that Dr. Rick Knabb is returning to the National Hurricane Center as their new Director replacing the retiring Bill Read.  Dr. Knabb was a senior hurricane specialist at NHC and his return should mean a seamless transition.  He has been the Tropical Specialist with The Weather Channel for the past 2 years.

We have the possibility that the season's 1st named storm could form off the Carolina coast this weekend as a semi-hybrid (sub-tropical) system.  Since it's expected to remain nearly stationary, the circulation around it will continue the dry flow of air down into Louisiana.  Our rain chances will stay slim to none until a weak front gets close next Tuesday.  Enjoy your weekend!
