It is becoming clear that the forecast will likely be changing. I like what I have out through Sat. But Sunday and Monday will likely change. The reason is this: Major Hurricane Joaquin will likely take one of two paths. The early hook into SC/NC (less likely) or parallel the coast and sideswipe New England at worst (most likely). This means drier and brighter skies for us are possible Sun and Mon. Will make update later this evening as I get to see what Joaquin is doing.
Please pray for the folks in the Bahamas. This is a very devastating storm for them. Long duration. A lot fo damage will occur.
First picture is of Hurricane Joaquin this morning. Notice the rounded look to it, indicating a favorable environment for rapid development. The second is the latest NHC track for the Hurricane. Notice the bed toward the east coast. The third is the GFS model forecast taking the Hurricane inland near Cape Hatteras NC. This is only one idea. I think if Hurricane Joaquin makes landfall it will be further north. Details below:
All weather eyes are going to be focused on the east coast through Sunday as a big upper trough, heavy rain, and a likely major Hurricane Joaquin take aim for the coast. The exact details are sketchy at best, but the big picture is becoming clearer.
