TS Hanna makes landfall. All eyes on Ike

Tropical Storm Hanna
It was a wild ride last night here in eastern N.C. Our top wind gust so far was 43 MPH. We got a total of 0.92 inches of rain from yesterday morning when Hanna's outer rain bands started to come ashore. Hanna made landfall last night around 3:20 AM on the S.C./N.C. border. Hanna is expected to race up the U.S. East Coast today and tomorrow and merge back out into the Atlantic.

Hurricane Ike
Evacuations have already begun in south Florida. Ike has top winds of 115 MPH gusting up to 140 MPH. Ike is expected to impact Cuba late Sunday as a category 4 hurricane and then emerge into the GOM and might cause problems for a lot of the Gulf Coast. All residents from Florida to Texas should closely monitor the progress of this system.

Hurricane Season

Hurricane season official starts in 9 days. NO tropical weather formation is expected for the next 48 hours. I might have a report from Cape Canaveral, Florida on The 31st or June 1st. I will have to see what computer access I have. Recent runs of the GFS and ECMWF Show that there could be possible development of a tropical depression or a tropical storm in the Eastern Pacific just off the coast of Guatemala May 28/29.
If such storm developes i will most likely post a Special Tropical Weather Post or STWP.
