TRACKING THE TROPICS: “ERIKA” A PROBLEM FOR THE MID-SOUTH?
What’s left of Tropical Storm “Erika” got shredded as it passed over parts of the Caribbean Friday night. Has the potential to regenerate into a tropical storm, but we’ll have to wait and see if that happens. If it does, it looks like the latest computer models are showing the expected forecast track to drift farther west, which could affect Mid-South weather into next week.
Tune in to the National Hurricane Center for the latest information.
