The Atlantic is really looking ready to go tonight. Besides Hurricane Alberto (Which seems to be heading more north again), we have two areas that really need to be watched.
One is in the western Caribbean, which tonight is looking better, and another Just NE of the Eastern Caribbean islands. All three of these areas require our attention over the next few days.
They are closer out than Alberto. Alberto seems like will have very little chance of impacting the islands (yay!). The western Caribbean disturbance has a chance to make it into the gulf, which makes this area a must watch for those in the area. And the storm nearing the islands is a wildcard.
Jim F. has put together a page with photos of 1999 Hurricane Irene aftermath in Ft. Lauderdale. Check it out here.
