  • Irma weakens to a remnant low and watching Jose...

    Good morning everyone.  Irma has finally weakened to a remnant low, but is still spreading scattered rain and storms in an arc from the Mississippi and Ohio River Valleys back toward the Carolinas.

    Isolated flooding is possible.

    Coastal flood warnings and flood warnings remain in effect across the northeastern Florida and southeastern Georgia coasts through Thursday, where an onshore flow will also keep the rip current risk high along beaches.

    In the western Atlantic, Jose has weakened to a 75mph hurricane, and will likely weaken further to a tropical storm over the next few days as it curls and loops from the east to south and eventually back towards the west, then northwest over the weekend.

    We’ll monitor Jose’s progress beyond the weekend to determine whether Jose has any direct impacts on the Bahamas or U.S.
