A Significant Event In The Making

Here’s something that I have never seen before….a double whammy for Florida:Both of these storms will have an impact there. Hurricane Gustav will be on the west side as it moves towards Louisianna and TS 8,which will develop into Hurricane Hanna soon, will be on the east side as it moves towards the Bahamas and Florida.
This is a weather event worth watching especially if you are in Florida. To make matters worse, there is another system with the potential to become a TS in a few days on the heels of Hanna.

It has remained quite warm here with temps reaching the 30s for the past few days and staying relatively mild most nights.Along with the warm air we are having some fog move onshore overnight.There is a hint of Autumn in the air by times but we’re still holding onto more summer-like conditions for now.
Some rain is expected tonight and into tomorrow and then it’s back to sun and mid 20Cs for the next few days.
