We are going into the most active part of the tropical season. From now through September, the tropics should remain active with most of the storms coming by the 15th of the month.
The last several days I was on a tour with our commercial services doing talks on the rest of the tropics and the winter forecast. Some of the points that I made were:
1. Watch innocent looking systems that may become tropical storms and hurricanes very quickly.
2. Watch the area off the Southeast coast and the eastern Gulf of Mexico for storms.
3. East Coast is still ripe for a storm coming up, producing heavy rain and flooding.
Starting with Gordon, looks like the Azores will take a hit by Gordon on Monday. After that, the storm will head toward Portugal as a depression.
Helene, while disorganized this morning is still a threat for heavy rain along the Gulf Coast. The front coming down will hook in with Helene and with the big high coming down, that could add spin to Helene causing her to spin-up again while she wonders along the front. Areas along the Gulf Coats and northern Florida could have heavy rain next week.
Isaac will form in the Atlantic this week and could be our first major hurricane of the season as it moves through the Caribbean. The GFS wants to take Isaac toward the East Coast and hook it in with the next trough coming through. We have over seven days to take a look at Isaac, so just stay tuned.
The storm this weekend will produce severe storms, flooding and possibly heavy snow.
Snow for New England today into tonight. The weekend storm will be a wild one.
A clipper will bring snow to New England. A storm this weekend will produce severe weather and snow.
Nothing really new this morning. Snow area seems to be good with some adjustments per the AccuWeather map.
Snowstorm moves across the eastern half of the country. More snow follows next week.
A storm will bring another swath of moderate to heavy snow from Missouri to New England.
