Gordon Named, Helene is Next...

Gordon will probably become a hurricane on Friday but who cares?   He's heading towards Europe away from the U.S.  Computer models are hinting a storm will form our in the Atlantic coming off of Africa during the next 3-5 days.  So far out, not an immediate concern.   However, the remains of TD 7 is entering the extreme southern Gulf and NHC has scheduled a plane to fly out Friday PM if satellite loops show any development.  So far tonight, all storms remain over land.

In the short term, we have a wet 2-3 days coming as our daily shower chances will be enhanced by a deepening east coast trough that will bring a cold front down to the Gulf South.  That front should push off our coast by Sunday PM bringing us drier air for Monday & Tuesday.  That should result in cooler nights for the beginning of next week.
