Here come the hurricanes?

Weather Underground

Statistically, the chances of an Atlantic hurricane rise rapidly around Aug. 18. The odds peak around Sept. 10 and remain high through mid-October.

If you’re a weather nerd, as I am, a great source of expert commentary on the weather is Jeff Masters’ blog at Weather Underground. During hurricane season, Masters posts pretty much every day. He explains what’s going on in the hurricane birthing grounds in the South Atlantic, and he tracks any developing storms.

Since I am safely situated 200 miles from the Atlantic, I’m hoping for a good, rainy hurricane season this year to help recharge the ground-water aquifer, which has not really recovered in this area from the severe drought of 2003.
