Fall Safety from your Weather Ready Nation Team
Fall is the time when the tropical waters are the warmest. There is always a lag. So it is the time of the year when we have the potential to see remnants from tropical storms. Last week we saw the remnants of Tropical Storm Kay.
Next week, it looks like we will have a LOT more rain from Tropical Storm “M”. M is just a disturbance at this time off the Mexican western coast line. She is forecast to intensify over the next 48 hours and move northwest and her tropical moisture has the potential to advect into our area. Shawn will have all the details in his forecast discussion tomorrow.
So, it is a perfect time to reflect on weather safety.
