Florence Makes Six...

Named tropical systems so far in 2006. As of the 11am advisory on September 5 winds in a flare up of convection were estimated near 40 mph. It's going to take some time, but Florence is on the way to becoming the second hurricane of the season.

Now, the forecast track brings this system closer to the U.S. by early next week. Most short range computer models bring Florence toward the U.S. Coast and the longer range models turn it out to sea. This is not a final forecast and will change. I think it will be interesting to see how Florence evolves this week and whether or not we'll be talking about Florence as a strike threat to our coast lines late next week.
