Extreme rain through this weekend will cause flooding in the Carolinas; it's not really nice anywhere near the East Coast. Fortunately, it's nice elsewhere for now. The tropics remain active.
While it looks likely at this point that Joaquin goes out to sea, we still have a setup for parts of the Southeast to see some extreme rainfall.
Several separate storm systems will affect the South over the next several day with most of the action in the Southeast.
A big surge of moisture and perhaps a depression or storm will be heading into the Southeast early next week, while most areas west of the Mississippi remain warm and almost summery.
A storm over the East Coast is causing a variety of problems while the next area of interest will be the Gulf of Mexico.
This will be the last post for a while as I am headed down there to live through my forecast for a change. There's plenty of stuff to watch for while I'm gone.
A front headed south will bring in the first good fall-like air mass of the season later this week. But, it's Septermber and we have to watch the tropics for potential problems.
Depending on where you are, your weekend will either be hot, stormy, or very nice. Out in the tropics we have several things to watch in both Atlantic and Pacific but no major threats.
While we have a quiet setup down south right now, fronts moving in over the next week or so will make it get more active. The tropics remain busy but there are no big threats close to home.
It looks as though a front will move in and stall Friday through this weekend, causing wet weather for Labor Day Weekend in a lot of places. The tropics remain active but there's little threat to us.
