Igor out in far Atlantic-could Julia be next ?
Tropical Storm Igor continues to roam the far eastern Atlantic this morning and could very well become a strong hurricane over the next week or so but models indicate that it may curve away from the U.S. mainland and never be a problem but never take your eyes off a tropical cyclone ! A new disturbance appears to be getting quickly organized over the extreme southeast Caribbean this morning and it may very well be on it's way to becoming our next named storm of the season and it will be called Julia. Now this system bears watching as it may try to approach the gulf during the next week. We will continue to monitor both of these systems and keep you informed on the latest with them. For us here at home, our weather is being controlled by a strong high pressure ridge and that will keep us hot and dry today and Friday with highs in the mid 90s and lows in the lower 70s. Rex
