Active tropical scene-but we are safe for now !
We currently have Hurricane Danielle and Tropical Storm Earl out in the far eastern Atlantic. At this time it appears that both of these storms will curve north well away from the U.S. mainland. There are more tropical waves that are forecast to move off the African coast in the next week or so and computer models indicate that some of these will develop into named storms. As we get closer to Labor Day, we may see some increased activity in the gulf. We will continue to monitor the situation as we are now reaching the peak of the hurricane season. For right now our weather is being controlled by an area of high pressure giving us hot days and mild nights. Rex
