The official forecast track has shifted back to the west once again as of the 11AM update from the National Hurricane Center. This shift, once again places nearly all of the viewing and listening area under the cone of uncertainty. This means that we could very well be dealing with tropical storm force winds well inland along with heavy potentially flooding rains. Everyone should be closely monitoring the development of this storm and the forecast track. Tropical storm and or hurricane watches may very well go up for the east coast and Bay within the next 24 hours. Saturday during the morning hours conditions still look ok however later in the day during the afternoon and evening winds will become breezy with rain developing to the south and east initially. The worst of the weather will likely arrive between Saturday night and into Sunday morning. During this time heavy rain and windy conditions will be possible and quite likely especially from D.C. and points south and east toward the Bay and closer to the Irene. Remember there is still plenty of time for the forecast path to change so be sure to check back often for updates. As the forecast path is refined we will continue to refine our local forecast and what you can expect.
~ Have a good day!
