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.
Matthew is going to be our primary concern in the coming days. Substantial effects look likely for Jamaica, Cuba and the Bahamas. It's too soon to say one way or the other for the U. S. East Coast, but I'm worried.
The tropics are active in both the Atlantic and Pacific but the only threat to the U.S. is Julia, sitting near Charleston, SC. Meanwhile we will see fronts moving in that trigger storms and break the heat in some areas.
With fronts penetrating deeper into the South in the coming days, we'll see less heat and some opportunities for needed rain. There's plenty to follow in the tropics as well but no imminent threats except for some downpours.

Moisture from the East Pacific system Newton will bring some downpours into parts of Texas and Oklahoma and a tropical wave will graze south Florida and the Keys as well, but most of the rest of the South will stay hot and dry until a front moves in this weekend.
For the first time in a while, we will be feeling the effects of an East Pacific storm in Texas and Oklahoma while high pressure keeps the Southeast hot and dry. A front will move in this weekend to deliver some cooler air. We'll have to keep an eye on critters in the tropics but there's nothing hype-worthy out there right now.
