Hanna Bringing Beneficial Rainfall

Hanna has moved on shore in the Carolinas, and the CoCoRaHS maps should be quite colorful today from this region.

It will be neat to follow the progress of the rain shield up the coast this weekend as Hanna moves northeast.

Now our eyes will turn to Ike -- a dangerous hurricane. South Florida is really gonna have a close call with this one, and even potentially a direct hit.

If it doesn't hit the mainland of Florida, it may move over the Keys and then get into the Gulf of Mexico - and could potentially threaten Louisiana and Mississippi yet again.

I was checking out websites and found a great video on WRAL in Raleigh, NC that shows storm surge from a landfalling tropical system.

  1. I found another example of where CoCoRaHS rainfall reports are used:
    NWS in Jackson has used them in both Fay and Gustav.
