More Strong Storms

Dekalb and N Henry counties are under the gun this time with a very strong t-storm that is starting to bow out a bit. What this means is that we could start seeing some damaging winds ahead of this storms, especially in S Dekalb south of Klondike! As the storm progresses southward we could see more winds reach Whitehouse and Kelleytown.

Tropical Depression forms in Atlantic, may become Ernesto

MIAMI (AP) - Forecasters say a tropical depression has formed off the Windward Islands in the Atlantic Ocean and storm watches have been issued for the islands of Barbados, Dominica, Martinique and St. Lucia among other places.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Wednesday afternoon that maximum sustained winds are at 35 mph and the storm is moving to the west-northwest at 18 mph.

Forecasters say the storm is expected to strengthen and be near the Windward Islands on Friday. It could become a tropical storm later Wednesday or Thursday.

Storm watches also are out for the Grenadines, St. Vincent and Guadeloupe.

Olympics: Sailing & the Weather

Olympics: Sailing & the Weather

Another windy day today for the sailing event, and a particularly good day for the U.S. Olympic Sailing Team who ended up accruing solid/powerful results.

Sailing is one of those tricky sports where the weather can make or break not only who wins, but how it is won. Back in 2008 at the Beijing Olympics, six races were cancelled due to a complete lack of wind. Winds started off light, and they delayed four of the races, but then winds continued to weaken, eventually causing officials to cancel all six events in one day.

Tropical system looking more impressive

Tropical system looking more impressive

That tropical wave that we talked about earlier in the week is looking a little more impressive now.  The National Hurricane Center is now giving this a 60% chance of developing into a tropical storm within the next 48 hours.  The models are starting to get a little more in line on the direction of this system.  Check out the spaghetti model chart.  Most of the models keep this system moving more to the west and moving into the Caribbean.  If that motion continues, we will have to watch very closely to see if it will eventually end up in the Gulf of Mexico. 

Remember we had a few storms early this year.  If this gets a name, it would be Ernesto.  Here's the thinking from the NHC in their latest advisory:
