Below...satellite of our latest tropical storm...soon to be Hurricane Irma. She is moving across the So. Atlantic and expected to become a major Hurricane...perhaps even a super hurricane. The track is west for now..but by next week...it's not certain. Models are all over the place and this will not be an easy forecast in advance but will need too be watched closely due to the intensity expected. Until tomorrow...be safe.
Oh...1 more thing...look at this satellite....could that be Jose coming off the African coast ?
Satellite/radar shows 2 main features: Harvey ....tropical disturbance off Carolinas. System off East Coast brings rain and some wind to Mid Atlantic today and out tonight. Harvey doesn't give up.

Harvey is a Cat 2 hurricane with 115mph winds + moving toward Corpus Christie, Texas. He should make landfall tonight. A storm surge of 6'-12' likely...tornadoes....and very heavy rains. Since he will meander in that general areas for several days...rainfall could total more than 30" bringing life threatening floods.

Another low is expected to form over the Southeast Atlantic Coast. Some models want to develop it into the next tropical storm or hurricane. The Canadian model is extremely aggressive and frightening as it wants to bring it into the Mid Atlantic. Some other models bring it up coast as a rainstorm - mid part of next week. More on this later. Be safe.
Cold front in Great Lakes heads east and brings some showers and storms to East Coast by Wednesday followed by cooler air. Ex storm Harvey moves into Gulf and heads for Texas. After that - it moves northeast as a rain-maker. Below - today's threat of severe weather in dark green and yellow.

Below...tropical Atlantic. Two waves of interest...one near SOuth America which will likely move toward Central America....other off Africa which is a concern to the U.S.
Below is the GFS Model take on system off AFrica. All week long this model has been bringing to the U.S. but doesn't really know where to track it....too far away. By mid August....the GFS bring this storm to Florida coast ...and then up the coast. That may not be the case....but it needs to be watched. Be safe.

Below...today's weather map followed by animation of those systems for the next couple of days.
Below...tropical outlook. System off Africa could be the next tropical storm. Be safe.
Stalled front over the South means more wetness there....some of which works up East Coast. Cold front in Great Lakes causes more storms...as another system generates heavy rain for the No. Plains. Below...today's risk of severe weather - dark green and yellow.
Above...current map. Below - today's map animated over the next couple of days.
