The other thing that amazes me is the lack of snow cover across the county in March. Typically you have a lot of snow cover left across the eastern part of the country this time of the year, but right now all we have is a patch across parts of Vermont, New Hampshire and northern Maine that is disappearing quickly. Also, notice the lack of snow cover across central Canada. I bring that up because any cold air masses coming down from Canada will not have any snow cover to go over to get modified so while the computer models may show cold air coming, the end result may be an air mass that is more normal in regards to temps.
Erika will have many issues this weekend includng tracking over the islands with big mountains.
Erika will track into the Bahamas and may intensify early next week. Track could bring it close to the U.S.
Erika's path and intensity over the next five days is the concern of the day.
We continue to watch the tropics as now we have a new storm.
The weather this week across the country will be calm, but we still have Danny out there lurking later this week.
