This is a busy weather weekend. In the Pacific Ocean, California is bracing as Hurricane Hilary, a category 4 storm approaches; she is California’s first August cyclone to pose a direct threat in over 80 years. Flash flood warnings are in effect for the southwest because Hurricane Hilary is expected to produce more than three (3) times the amount of rain the region typically receives in a year. Peak winds of 145 miles per hour are expected and 21 million people are within the path of Hurricane Hilary. On the other side of the country in the Atlantic Basin, the tropics are busy too. Four (4) systems are churning. Meteorologists say the storms have a 20% to 50% range of developing into either a tropical storm or a hurricane. Be sure to watch your local news if you live in a coastal area for updates to keep you, your family, and friends safe.
