After Ike...What's Up Next?

With Ike weakening over Texas tonight...attention turns back to the Atlantic for more activity.

With huge Hurricane Ike impacting Texas and Louisiana...the remnants of this system will actually bypass North Carolina.The latest hurricane models take Ike's remnants across the Missouri River Valley...then into the Ohio Valley..then shoot it through the Northeast..totally missing North Carolina.

But our attention turns to a couple of disturbances in the Atlantic. First off...there's a disturbance a couple of hundred miles to the east of the Bahamas...and it's actually the remnants of Josephine. So if this system should be re-named Josephine again...not Kyle. We'll see. In any case...most of the hurricane models drift this systems towards the east coast the next several days.

Secondly...there's another area of disturbed weather about 1000 miles east of the Lesser Antilles...and is moving towards the west-northwest at 10 mph. Some development is possible in the days to come.

Although we're officially past the peak of the hurricane season ( September 10th)...don't let your guard down. We could see another volley of storms heading towards the U.S.. The good news that cold fronts this time of year are becoming more robust and will tend to curve storms out to sea... more so...than say July or August.
