A Slow Saturday Night

Snapshot  Tonight was one of those SLOW weather nights!  One where I spent an hour lining up my school visits using little icons to indicate status, and checking out Phil Hendrie characters.  I stared at the sky for a few minutes etc…

Poor Grand Turk island tonight.  Looks like the eyewall of a very strong category 4 IKE is passing directly overhead right now.  It's headed for the large Bahamian Island called Inagua, then on to Cuba.  We'll see where it ends up.  Obviously it's going to be the main weather story through this upcoming work week.

No changes in my forecast thinking for the next two days.  Easterly flow begins later tonight and continues until Monday afternoon.  Enjoy the sunshine!  Mark Nelsen

    On the center line of the current forecast track. First Galveston and then Houston. Could this be the storm that they have been planning for. Also, Galveston bay would be in the NE quad, which could be the onset of massive flooding from the storm surge.

    And wind is nearly dead.

  17. TriforceofInvisibility says:

    Triforce is curious as to what kind of forecast that will bring? More late-season heat like today? I am still above 70F and it’s 9:00pm ish. 72.0F for the last 5 or so minuets. Struggling to go down so me thinks it be warm night indeed.

    It’s VERY gust in Salem with trees blowing that looks like between 28-34 mpht cause the trees in Salem OR the large branches moved back n forth.
    We went to Red Robins and the wind tried to blow ALL of our stuff. Not some but ALL. Not half but ALL. Not (Gets knocked out) Shutting up.
    86F here and I can feel it when I step outside. Feels nice in the fall compared to Summer. 🙂 I hope Mother Nature coughes up one more record heat spell.
