Drier air working in....tropics bubbling...

>> Tuesday, August 30, 2011

After some big storms rumbled through the region yesterday afternoon and evening, some drier air is working in today, and the result will be some pretty nice weather over the next few days. Highs will be in the 80s with lows in the 60s....even a few upper 50s possible in some of the cooler spots the next couple of nights.

Our next decent storm chance probably comes Sunday into Monday. The system for late this work week looks weaker this morning, and the rain chance looks less significant.


TD 12 was upgraded to TS Katia this morning, and it looks like this thing should really take off in intensity. The system will have very little in the way of a Saharan dust layer to fight, and the only real negative I see in terms of intensification potential is the system's speed.... it's moving pretty quickly.

Katia could very well be a major hurricane a little northeast of the NE Caribbean Islands this weekend. From there, a lot of modeling would suggest a turn to the north before reaching the US. I am not ready to confidently proclaim that yet...we need to watch it.
