Dean Means Trouble for Jamaica

Hurricane Dean will move across Jamaica today spreading heavy rains and destructive winds across the small island.

While the weather instruments are working, you can use the following links for current conditions in Jamaica --

Dean could still become a category 5 hurricane into early next week as it tracks toward the Yucatan Peninsula. Depending on how much time the storm spends over land, it will weaken some before moving into the Gulf of Mexico and making landfall in Mexico.

The exact forecast track for Dean may change some into early next week. This will probably be the last blog post on Dean for several days as I take a few days off. You can find the latest on Dean by tuning in to our tropical update at :21 after the hour on News 14 Carolina. More information is also available online from the National Hurricane Center at
