The link above will take your to our new tropics tracker. It's REALLY cool and interactive. You just click on point in Ernesto's path and it give you all the info! You can zoom in and pan around, plus take a look at the "spaghetti models" I show at lot in my weather forecasts.
Ernesto is poised to move through the Caribbean, possibly impacting Jamaica with its outer bands or possibly getting a little closer. It will hear toward the Yucatan before getting into the Gulf of Mexico. After that, there's still a lot of question about where it would go. It might stay in the southern gulf and head into Mexico, but it's a little early to tell.
We're also watching a storm way out near Africa. It could have a better chance of nearing the eastern U.S. coast, but it still has a better chance of recurving in the Atlantic. Something to watch though!
While we are talking about weather far, far away, might as well mention London! As the track and field events are starting, the rain chance will increase significantly! A low pressure system will hang out around the British Isles through the weekend and early next week, so we'll see how the wet weather impacts events.
Locally, storms will be likely this evening and tonight, then once again tomorrow. It's all because if moist flow from the Bermuda high. We will be exceptionally muggy through the weekend, so storms will have plenty of moisture to work with. HIghs will only reach the mid to upper 80s, but it will FEEL a lot hotter than that!
