Another "I" Storm

Tropical storm Isaac has formed in the Atlantic.  Of course we remember the last “I” storm very well.  On this day last year, Irene was upgraded to a hurricane after making landfall in Puerto Rico. Isaac is approaching the lesser Antilles and is located south of high pressure.  That ridge will help steer Isaac west over the next 72 hours, keeping the storm from following Irene’s track.  Around here, the weather is quiet with sunshine, low humidity and dry weather continuing through this weekend! High temperatures will be in the low to mid 80s tomorrow, and the mid to upper 80s late week.

Here is an interactive link to view/compare Irene's track! Just select storm name.  Then enter "Irene" and choose the year 2012.
