Storms in the Plains, Storms in the Atlantic

Igor has really taken off in the past 36 hours or so. Quickly organized and became a Cat 4 hurricane. The projected track may take it over to the Bermuda islands, but will likely steer clear of the US mainland. This is probably good because it looks to stay in good form as it chugs along. Another little disturbance looks to track up the Mexico coast into the Gulf of Mexico. Really early stages can be seen on the GFS model but just looks like a remake of Hermine almost.

Hurricane Igor

On the mainland, a good complex of storms has really lit up the mid section today sparking a Tornado watch. Visible satellite loop is impressive seeing the cloud tops really grow.

For us, a little disturbance looks to move through tomorrow bringing some showers. A clearing forms for Wednesday, but the rain will be back for a drenching on Thursday. A high near the upper 50s is possible. Lows this week look to hover in the mid 40s consistantly.

In the long range, things may get waaaay cold for the time of the year. Looking at the GFS, a system brings down a decent amount of cool air from Canada. This looks to happen around the 21st so will have to track the timing and location of the cool temp line.
