Alex Update

Alex is still a Tropical Storm but it is a strong one.  This storm will likely be upgraded to a Hurricane later tonight.  Alex has encountered some dry air and that has kept it from strengthening as fast as previously forecasted.  I have added a few more computer models to this plot than Damon did.  I just wanted to show you that a few models are still taking the moisture remnants to the north.  I am not quite buying into it, but I would say it is still worth watching.

Here is the ‘Official” track from the National Hurricane Center.

This storm will be a category one storm when it makes landfall.  Mexico will get most of the wind but Texas and Louisiana will see increased rain chances from this storm.  The reason for this, is that the heaviest rain is concentrated in the NW side of tropical systems.  We will let you know if anything major changes but so far the impact on Oklahoma from this storm will be minimal.
