MM’s Wx Concerns

The exact track of Hurricane Ida will determine the impacts to the plateau. Right now, it looks like those impacts could be high. We could be looking at gusty winds, heavy rainfall, and even isolated tornadoes. I’ll keep a very close eye on things.

Meanwhile, be safe in the heat!
