Hurricane Polo: passing us today

Posted by Bret B on September 18, 2014, 9:00 am, in reply to "Re: TS Polo: TS Warning issued"

Polo is barely up to Cat 1 hurricane strength today: 75mph winds. Nothing much different than yesterday except they have it positioned a little farther offshore today, so our chance of getting 39+mph winds is down to 20%. I estimate its closest approach to us later today will be about 150 miles offshore.

The rain forecast hasn't changed: 5-10 inches. We have received almost 0.5" so far since last night. Our ground is still quite saturated, so any new rain will run off quickly. Watch out if you live near any streets that turn into washes.
