Alan's Hurricane Forecast- 08/26/11

A hurricane warning for much of the state today. We'll deal with that in just a second. Warm and humid, though, for Friday with clouds and sun. It may shower with highs in the 80s, but cooler near the ocean.

Some showers around tonight in the humid upper 60s or the low 70s.

Rain tomorrow that will become heavy at times during the course of Saturday afternoon and evening as the wind starts to increase. Highs mainly in the 70s.

The hurricane will probably be just east of Norfolk, Virginia by tomorrow (Saturday) evening at 8PM. If it's that far north already, there's a chance that the storm will be passing us during the course of the day on Sunday. And so, very strong winds and heavy downpours develop Saturday night and Sunday morning.

Winds could reach 40 to 60 MPH with gusts to hurricane force late Saturday night and Sunday morning. We may possibly dry out Sunday afternoon with some strong west winds. The bottom line is, we are going to see a lot of rain that is going to cause major flooding concerns inland. Of course, the other concern is coastal flooding, although the time of high tide along the ocean tomorrow morning is very early, so that may be of some help.

The bays will start to flood over later Sunday in the morning or during the afternoon, so that also causes concern as well.

That's it for now. Have a good weekend.
