Forecast Discussion

It’s looking like one of the best Fourth of July weekends we could ask for in the weather department. Low humidity in July is always a treat, especially for a holiday weekend!

I’ve been watching Hurricane Elsa closely, and it’s looking more and more like the effects of that storm will stay east of our area. We may get some pretty tropical clouds from her, but I think the rain will stay far away. Since there is still so much uncertainty with her future path, I will continue to watch her very closely.

Almanac for Yesterday


Hurricane Elsa is liable to take a path that does not bode well for that storm. Rugged terrain will take a toll on the storm and it will struggle on its journey to the US. Never the less, the system is expected to retain its tropical storm strength and it will still need to be watched very closely. I should note that this path forecast could change. If Elsa avoids the more rugged terrain of Cuban, the storm will be stronger. It is also worth noting that conditions may be such that Elsa strengthens into a hurricane again in the Gulf. There’s much to watch.
