IGOR TO BECOME MAJOR HURRICANE

No threat to land, but IGOR winds increase from 45 mph to 100+ mph this weekend.

Cold front and upper level troughs over the eastern U.S. are good guard dogs to turn hurricanes away from our coast. Hurricane Earl was too close for comfort to the mid-Atlantic and New England coast. The upper Mexico and south Texas regions have been magnets for Caribbean/Gulf storms.

Long range upper wind forecasts next week favor a turn to the north for IVAN well away from the U.S., but we have two and a half months left to this hurricane season and we must still stay prepared. These distant storms would have given us ample time to prepare if the were to head our way. It’s the storm that develop in the Caribbean or eastern Gulf that only gives us 24 to 48 hours advance notice!
