Hurricane Bermuda? Leslie threatens
Derecheo loop - great radar lapse of June 29th derecheo as it races from Chicago to Washington D.C.
Drought Buster - Isaac's rains ease drought in parts of Midwest
Perfect forecast? Sunny & near 80 today in the metro - does it get any better?
Secondary cold front - showers and about 10-12 degrees cooler behind advancing cold front Friday
Nice weekend - Classic September weekend ahead
Leslie takes aim at Bermuda:
How can a hurricane with a gentle name like "Leslie" strike fear into Bermuda anyway?
Check out the latest NHC track. The storm may pass just east of Bermuda Sunday.
That's good, because it may just keep the stronger, more damaging eastern part of the hurricane offshore.
Still, it looks like Leslie may sideswipe Bermuda with a decent punch and raging surf this weekend.
Isaac: Drought Buster
Here's what rainfall from a tropical storm can do to a drought.
Take a look at what 2" to 8"+ rainfall from Isaac last week did to today's updated U.S. Drought Monitor.
Isaac put a major dent in drought conditions from Arkansas into Missouri, Illinois and Indiana.
Remember the massive damaging Chicago to D.C. derecheo in late June?
Check out this excellent radar time lapse as the system races east producing damaging winds along it's path.
Close call in Charlotte?
The DNC moved tonight's keynote event inside in Charlotte. That's a good move because it's just too close of a call to rule out any thunderstorms tonight in Charlotte.
Check out the forecast from the local NWS:
Tonight: Scattered showers and thunderstorms, mainly before 9pm. Patchy fog after 5am. Otherwise, partly cloudy, with a low around 68. Light southwest wind. Chance of precipitation is 30%. New rainfall amounts of less than a tenth of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.
