This low pressure system is becoming better organized as wind shear is dropping so people on or near the Atlantic coast from South Carolina northward need to start paying attention to their weather stations.

The current best guess is a strong tropical storm that runs along the coast with heavy rain and 60 mph winds, but storms have been over-achieving this year, so pay attention.  Tropical storm spin off tornadoes,  so don’t concentrate on the eye.

Great. It’s going to be lovely here this weekend and for the first part of next week. And I’m heading off to D.C., where it’s supposed to be hot, humid, and now maybe the target of a tropical storm.

Just watch it, Michael, and hope it doesn’t stall, because these things have really been spinning up quickly. Keep some trail mix and water handy, because the infrastructure around DC really sucks.

My sister & her husband are at Myrtle Beach, S.C. this week & part of next. Their Myrtle Beach vacations are so far 100% accurate in predicting when a storm will blow in. Never fails, every year they get a ‘rain check’ from the hotel before they evacuate.

We can use the rain, if it throws some bands this far west. So far, our local weather gurus say ‘probably not’.

I have a cousin who lives in Myrtle Beach, and her parents are moving down to live near her. Now she will hear it from her father, as if she personally ordered a tropical storm to annoy him.

As I said to Michael, if it stalls, it could grow, so the steering is as important as the wind shear.
