EARLY MORNING UPDATE AND VIDEO:

Good morning!  The news on Dorian has been absolutely horrific.  The human suffering in the Bahamas since Sunday is unimaginable.  Today, Dorian will move closer to the Florida coast, moving northward today & Wednesday and then will parallel the Georgia coast, and head for the Carolinas.  For us, we will be stuck in a HOT and dry pattern for several days.  Could we be near 100 by the weekend?  It’s not out of the question.   When will rain return to our forecast. And, back to the tropics…we could have a tropical depression or tropical storm in the Gulf later today. It’s very busy in the tropics.  I’ll cover it all in your Tuesday morning video briefing.
