All weather, all the time: Maybe Ike next week?

TD 9 has formed and is picking up steam way out in the Atlantic. The boys at NOAA say this one has all the hallmarks of a traditional hurricane, and it's five-day track is aimed right at the central Caribbean.

To be named "Ike", if it gets that far (it should), the storm will start hitting the US media next weekend, after the Hanna hysteria runs out.

The season is getting more interesting by the day. It ain't over until Oct, maybe Nov. Stay tuned...

UPDATE - Mon 2100 - Yep, it's Ike. Looks like there's another low off the West African coast which may turn into something right behind it. It's been quiet the last couple of years, but here it comes now...
