Heavy HERMINE Rains
Hello and happy Wednesday everyone. I hope all is well. The tropical season continues with more activity seeming to brew each and every day in the Atlantic Basin. Of course, the big story over the past couple of days has been HERMIN and her horrendous rainfall through Texas. Take a look at some of these Texas images:
Radar Rain Estimates
Take a look at the radar rain estimates from central Texas. These estimates are strictly from HERMINE and are quite impressive. The dark red/purple colors indicate estimates around 10″ to 15″
Other Tropical Happenings
Tropical Storm IGOR has now formed off the western tip of Africa and is drifting westward. Sustained winds with IGOR at the last update earlier Wednesday morning were at 46mph. In order to be a hurricane, sustained winds have to be at 74mph, which looks like by Saturday. Take a look at the latest track:
Fall Color Update
Make your plans now! Get ready for the annual fall color tour. A few maples and birches are starting to show along the international border. This is the average fall color peak times in the nation:
If you haven’t had a chance to tour the fall colors ever, I suggest planning a trip at some point in the next few years… you won’t be disappointed, I promise! Expect a few more colors to show up in backyards/neighborhoods near you within the next few days/weeks.
Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday and come back again real soon, won’t you?!
