More Trouble Brewing In The Mid-Atlantic

Posted by Dan Satterfield

Looking at the satellite imagery this evening is a scary prospect. Hannah is now a hurricane east of the Bahamas. The numerical weather prediction (NWP) guidance brings it into Savannah or S. Carolina as a minimal hurricane by Friday afternoon.

A new tropical storm has formed in the middle of the Tropical Atlantic. This system looks very healthy, and is now named Tropical Storm Ike. I suspect it will become a hurricane and approach the Bahamas and perhaps the USA in 7-10 days.

Looks like a busy September, with a lot of tropical troubles….
