Earl Will Make The East Coast Squirm

Hurricane Earl is still out in the Atlantic, moving west-northwest at 12 mph with winds of 85 mph.  The storm will strengthen in the next few days with winds increasing to 115 mph by mid-week.  Earl’s projected path takes it awfully close to the East Coast, especially from North Carolina northward to New England.  Right now a direct hit does not seem likely, but a glancing blow to places like the Carolina Outer Banks, and New England’s Martha’s Vineyard is possible.  It would not take much of a westward shift in the path to put places like Washington D.C. and New York City in harm’s way.  This will be an interesting storm to watch in the coming week.  Here’s the current path (which will likely change a bit over the next few days):
