CATEGORY 5 HURRICANE DEAN COMES ASHORE WITH 165 MPH SUSTAINED WINDS! WOW! MUCH NEEDED RAINS FALL HERE. SUMMER CONDITIONS TO RETURN!


WOW! MEAN DEAN lives up to his name and then some as he strengthened to 165 mph winds before landfall. The devastation a hurricane of that magnitude can have is just unheard of! The Yucatan is getting hammered as he weakens over land today. He will emerge again and make a second landfall in Mexico later this week!
 
For us. Welcome rains and cooler temperatures have been very good for our parched region. The cooler air and rainy skies will begin to break up tomorrow and officially be gone Thursday as highs climb back up to 85 to 90 degree range and in the 90s by Friday.
 
The weekend could hold some thunder.
 
Tropics: Another disturbance out between Bahama and the Lee Ward islands showed some flare up yesterday and will need to be watched, but looks pitiful this morning!
 
All for now!
