    The 11 am update from the National Hurricane Center is confirming my assessment that those from North Carolina northward should keep a close eye on Maria. It is looking more and more like Maria will make some type of landfall on the US east coast.

    Saturday morning update: The more westerly track for Maria is still showing up in the GFS and Candadian/GDPS models. The NHC has issued their latest Warnings/Cone map and it is starting to show the Maria moving closer to the US. The present information is showing Maria may hit the east coast of North Carolina with a glancing blow then move back over the Atlantic. We are still about 4 days away from possible landfall so I'll be keeping a...

    The latest GFS and Canadian/GDPS have Maria taking an even more westerly track than this mornings runs next week that could bring it closer to the US east coast. If this trend continues those along the east coast from around South Carolina northward should start paying close attention to this hurricane.

    Many moons ago I drove a truck for Whiteford Trucking Company out of South Bend, IN. They were bought out by Gainey Trucking of Grand Rapids, MI I think. I went to a trucking school in Ohio for about two weeks. I don't know how they do it now but back then going to trucking school was the best way. They got you a job when you graduated. I had several offers. This was right before they started issuing the CDL licenses. I drove an 8 speed 85...

    Those with interests from about North Carolina northward should be watching Maria closely. There seems to be a definite westward tilt to the track of Hurricane Maria. How far west it will come is still too early to tell. I'll update later today.

    I'm still seeing a slight westwardly track forming for Maria There is still a chance of it missing the US entirely. As of now, I think Florida can rest easy. I will update in the morning. Update from NHC Maximum sustained winds are near 120 mph with higher gusts. Maria is a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-SimpsonHurricane Wind Scale. Little change in strength is expected during the next couple of days. Hurricane-force winds extend...

    Just a quick update. The Canadian/GDPS was showing Maria making landfall in North Carolina. This is the first model that I've seen to show Maria coming ashore in the continuous US. Now this doesn't mean it will but the more westerly track that I saw yesterday maybe in the works. I'll update later this evening.

    Well, my post from this morning may have been a little premature. The latest runs are starting to brink Maria's track a bit further west now. So I'll be back watching it more closely.

    Just want to give a quick update. So far all of the models have shown Maria not making landfall in the continental US. So I will update again if there are any changes.

    Just a reminder what NOAA put out in August. Today NOAA issued the scheduled update for its 2017 hurricane season outlook. Forecasters are now predicting a higher likelihood of an above-normal season, and they increased the predicted number of named storms and major hurricanes. The season has the potential to be extremely active, and could be the most active since 2010. Early-season storms one indicator of active Atlantic hurricane season...

    Some do but remember some were showing Irma taking a more northerly track also early on. We have almost the same setup. A high-pressure ridge or system over the Atlantic. It will depend on how strong that system becomes. Just like with Irma this will be the steering mechanism that could force Maria to hit the US coast somewhere if it is strong or strength increases. If it is weak Maria could quite possibly miss the US entirely. Only time will...

    Just looked at the latest GFS model run. It is showing landfall along the South Carolina North Carolina border for Maria. Remember this is the almost the exact same thing it showed for Irma around a week or more away from the predicted landfall date. Please note now that this doesn't necessarily mean Maria will make landfall near that region but I think it is worth noting this is what it also showed for Irma and we all know where Irma finally...

    It's possible but way too far in the future to accurately predict its path. The GFS has it making a northerly turn and missing Florida but the Canadian GDPS has it making landfall in southern Florida on the 24th and moving up the east coast of Florida into Georgia.

    Atlanta got its first tropical storm warning in city history Sunday, with schools closing and the nation’s busiest airport weighing a possible shutdown. Mayor Kasim Reed urged residents to prepare for the worst. “Don’t be fooled that this storm cannot hurt you. Don’t go out and play in it,” he said. “We urge everyone to stay indoors and stay safe as we make it through this challenging moment.” Atlanta has first tropical storm warning with...
