HURRICANE IKE MOVES INTO THE GULF OF MEXICO WITH ITS EYE ON THE TEXAS COAST… COOLER AIR MOVES INTO HAMPTON ROADS… THE COLD FRONT STALLS OVER THE CAROLINAS
A cold front will move through Hampton Roads early Wednesday morning. This front caused a solid line of storms to develop over the Northeastern states on Tuesday. Here in the Southern Mid-Atlantic States, the rainfall was more isolated in nature. The cold front will stall over the Carolinas and this will cause some wet weather down that way. Here, we have a chance of a few showers on Wednesday, but it all depends on how far south the front gets. If it goes further south, we don’t get any rain. A small wave of low pressure may bring a few showers towards the end of the week, but there is a lot of uncertainty in the forecast. Models are offering different solutions. Meanwhile, Hurricane Ike has moved off of Cuba and is now heading W-NW into the Gulf of Mexico. It is expected to strengthen in as it approaches Texas as it will feed off of the very warm water. Ike weakened to a category one hurricane but it may strengthen back to a major hurricane. Time will tell.
