Rain a Pain, but Drier Weekend Coming...

Some of our weather observers have reported 2 day totals of 5-7"  with yet another stormy day ahead on Friday as an unusual August front pushes down to the Gulf Coast.  No need to break out sweaters, but the drier air should result in some 60s on the North Shore on Sunday morning.  There has been a real pattern shift that is finally bringing much needed rainfall to areas up north that have suffered in drought this summer.  Unfortunately, it's too late to save many crops.   I'm hopeful this deep east coast trough is a sign that we'll be seeing more troughs coming bringing us some real cold fronts for September.

The tropics are still active, but most models do not strengthen any system into a major storm over the next 7-10 days.  TD # 7 may become TS Gordon, but it will take a path similar to Ernesto and have a hard time getting stronger until it reaches the weatern Caribbean late next week.   If Florence regenerates, she'll go up the east coast and not bother us.  Stay tuned!
