Watching, Waiting, Wondering About Irma...

There really is no new news to report on Irma tonight.  She remains a small but strong hurricane well east of the Islands with a high chance of impacting the northern most ones early next week.  As I mentioned last night it is too soon to totally rule out Irma churning into the Gulf instead of making the turn to the north east of Florida.  Many models do indicate Irma will strike the U.S. east coast late next week (90%) with only a slight (10%) chance she could sneak into the Gulf.  If you have travel plans anywhere along the east coast for next week, please keep up with the progress of Irma as she could be a major Cat. 4 bringing Hurricane conditions into all of the big cities of the northeast.    We have no immediate Gulf threat coming during the next 7-10 days.  We do have is our 1st real cold front coming late Wednesday that will bring some 50s to the North Shore and 60s south.  Sunday & Monday should be mostly dry with only 10-20% shower coverage.  Rain chances ramp up Tuesday & Wednesday ahead of the cold front, but lower to near zero for the rest of next week.  Let’s enjoy this Labor Day weekend with no tropical threat.  Stay tuned!
