Major Hurricane Igor, Tropical Storm Julia, Is Karl Next?

Happy Sunday Evening everyone -
A big change over the last 24 hours with Igor strengthening dramatically and becoming a major hurricane. Everyone from the Mid-Atlantic northward should be watching this storm carefully and reviewing their hurricane plans. It is still too soon to tell if the storm will hit the US.

A new tropical storm named Julia has formed in the eastern Atlantic. This one will probably not be a threat to the US but it is way too early to determine.

In the Caribbean, a disturbance is having a tough time getting its act together. At least one intensity forecasting model is showing it becoming a tropical storm by Monday night. If that happens, it will be named Karl. Forecast models are all saying that it would hit Mexico. We will know a lot more in a few days.

Have a great week everyone!
