Here is the 2 p.m. EDT NHC Atlantic Tropical Weather Outlook: Shower and thunderstorm activity associated with an elongated area of low pressure located several hundred miles east of the Windward Islands has become a little better organized during the past few hours. Additional slow development of this system is possible during the next day or two, and a tropical depression could form as the system moves west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph across the Lesser Antilles and into the Caribbean Sea. After that time, land interaction could limit the development potential over the weekend.Regardless of tropical cyclone formation, gusty winds and heavy rainfall are possible across portions of the Lesser Antilles, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands on Thursday night and Friday. Interests in those islands should closely monitor the progress of this system. An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate this system tomorrow afternoon, if necessary.Get the latest on the tropics by visiting the NHC website at www.hurricanes.gov

With a backdoor front, and so much moisture around, more showers and storms will be likely this weekend than I would like. Also, as WxSouth has pointed out well, there could be some places in the Piedmont of VA, NC, SC that get some serious rains (flooding rains) from slow moving and repetitive storms as they squeeze out very high moisture content available in the air! So not a sunny weekend for VA and south!

The truth hurts!

President Obama claims the recent drought in California is the product of global warming. Meteorologist Anthony Watts challenges him to 'Spot the portion of California drought caused by ‘climate change’ How long can the warmists in the White House blame natural weather on "climate change" and get away with it? Share the facts at WUWT: http://wattsupwiththat.com/2014/08/18/spot-the-portion-of-drought-caused-by-climate-change/ Democratic candidates in California are abandoning the President's unscientific climate pronouncements in their mid-term election campaigns. From the Hill: 'Voters don’t hear the words “climate change” when Democrats in competitive races in California explain what’s causing the worst drought in the state’s history. President Obama has repeatedly blamed global warming for episodes of severe weather, including wildfires and droughts in the Golden State, but Democrats seeking to unseat Republicans in the hard-hit Central Valley region are balking at that argument. The drought is an issue in three of the five closest House races in California, but Democrats are opting against drawing a direct link between the drought and climate change. “The way folks talk about the drought out here is: ‘We have a problem, let’s fix the problem,’” said Amanda Renteria, a Democrat challenging Rep. David Valadao (R). “Climate change doesn’t really belong in the question, or answer,” said Renteria, one of her party’s best hopes of gaining a House seat this fall.' Will the White House finally wake up to the fact that weather happens?
