This weekend looks to be a damp one for the DFW Metroplex of Love. Well, we can use the rain.
Down south, however, this one has the full attention of state and local govts. You do NOT want to be on I-35 later this week, esp on the north-bound side, as tens of thousands of evacuees head for the drier and higher environs of, well, Dallas and Ft Worth.
According to the NOAA discussion, Ike should hit the south Texas coast near Corpus Christi early Saturday morning. After that, the models start to diverge, but the official forecast cone (below) has it turning north and moving slightly west of DFW early on Sunday.
Turn of the sprinklers, and don't bother washing the cars, folks.
