Hurricane spotting

It’s that time of year, of course, and the place to go for all your hurricane info needs is Jeff Masters’ blog at Weather Underground, now featuring Hanna, Ike and Josephine(!). Bookmark it, or better yet, use RSS to see the updates.

The National Hurricane Center is another good source.

Use my own interface to NWS Area Forecast Discussions to see forecast discussions from the point of view of the affected areas. At the moment, Hanna figures in the Wilmington NC forecast.

Synopsis. A hurricane watch is in effect for Georgetown… Horry… Brunswick… New Hanover and Pender Counties and for adjacent coastal waters from South Santee River to Surf City. Weak high pressure will persist across the Carolinas through today. Tropical cyclone Hanna will approach from the south and affect the area Friday into Saturday morning. Hanna will quickly depart late Saturday… with a trough of low pressure persisting across the Carolinas Sunday through Tuesday. The next cold front to affect the area will be the middle of next week.
