Water vapor image of Hurricane Rina in the gulf right now, the hurricane is likely to make its way to the north coast of Cuba before being demoted to a tropical storm. After that the remnants of the storm may get pushed back over mexico. Expect the coast of Mexico just north of Belieze to get hit within tomorrow and Friday with winds between 115mph and 100mph.

Interesting system forming over the central states, expect a lot of rain out of that. High pressure forming out over between Colorado, Nevada and Idaho. Of course, more rain over Florida, currently a 30% chance of the storm developing into a tropical cyclone.
Florida, here’s that rainy weekend I told you about! Currently a 20% chance of this stuff developing into a tropical or subtropical cyclone in the next 48hrs.
What’s this?! A hurricanes eye wall. Yes this is the center of a hurricane, the calmer part where warm air gets sucked up to feed the massive storm. The NOAA sends aircraft in here to get measurements to best predict the path of these dangerous storms. Currently unmanned aircraft that can get the measurements are in the works.
