A stalled front will be welcome neighbor between today and tomorrow as it provides a focus for multiple impulses of rain! Rain amounts now seem to be a general 1 – 2" with some places a little higher in storms! What seemed like it may be more focused in Northern areas now seems to be a pretty broad area so most of Virginia will see rains that are needed! Cooler than normal temperatures will persist through Wednesday and then a warm up to the 90 degree readings by next weekend.
Dean maintains a strong Category 4 Status. There are some ranges in guidance as to the eventual track, but, the track will be determined if a small weakness could be exploited and turn it a bit northward.. If that happens Texas could seriously be dealt with a huge destructive blow. Now Northern Mexico looks to be the eventual target. Before then a hit on Jamaica today and then the Yucatan tomorrow into Tuesday. It will devastate anything in its path so Texas needs to stay alert to this! I have a nice tracking forum topic if interested.
All for now!
