I am @AccuFrank on Twitter, which is the most reliable way to get alerted when I post new stuff. There's also this Facebook fan page thingie, which is not particularly reliable for that but it's good for posting little things where 140 characters won't do them justice ... or if Twitter is down because it's getting bombed by weather people tweeting about a newly named tropical cyclone.
Heat will be building across the South over the next several days, but we already see signs of another shot of unusual cool air down the road. The heat won't go away quietly. Speaking of quiet, the tropics are currently.
It looks as though Arthur is going to be close enough to North Carolina to do some damage. Hopefully it doesn't get any closer than forecast. The rest of the Atlantic is quiet, the East Pacific isn't.
The low east of Florida will keep it active near the East Coast this week while the heat wave continues to the west. A front will move in and ease the heat for many by Independence Day.
It looks like a hot week for most of the South, although we see a cool front moving in later in the week. Also, there's this critter east of Florida to watch.
As expected, things are getting busy in the East Pacific. We have one critter worth watching in the Atlantic, too.
As the Southeast dries out a little over the next few days, it's going to get hotter but a front arriving next week will bring a nice cool down for many. The tropical East Pacific is about to heat up, too.
