MY SPECIAL MESSAGES (WEDNESDAY JULY 8 2020 6:19 PM EDT)
See birdseye view post #56 below for more on the following:
Between now and Saturday, coastal regions on the United States east coast from Cape Hatteras North Carolina to Maine are likely to expereince heavy rains, gusty winds, and coastal sea swells as the broad surface low pressure currently on the Carolinca coast appears to be organizing into a tropical storm, with impacts arriving sooner further south and later further north. Heavy rains could spread inland across Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire, New Brunswick, and southeastern Quebec as this system makes landfall this weekend. Check and your local weather office and media for up to the minute latest information on this developing situation.
As the author of infohurricanes.com, I have also been monitoring the progress of the worldwide outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, see COVID-19 page in the above site menu for details. For the United States, see newly included message at the top of the COVID-19 page that explains the severity of the virus and how it could cause a catastrophic amount of fatalities, much more than the common flu, if large amounts of citizens continue to not perform best practices to stop the spread of the virus such as wearing a mask in public. Please spread this message to as many people as possible!
BIRDSEYE VIEW POSTS
Since 2012 on the Weather Underground (www.wunderground.com) blogs, I have been posting annotated "birdseye view" charts of the Atlantic basin, with a detailed explanation and forecasting that references the chart. From there you may know me as "NCHurricane2009." While I now do these "birdseye view" posts here, I will continue to do comments via Disqus on Weather Underground at www.wunderground.com/cat6. You can see my Disqus feed at this link for my latest comments. Feel free to reply to me with your disqus account or e-mail at
