Hello Arlene…. Tropical Update 9:30 PM Tuesday
June 28, 2011 Leave a comment
Tropical Storm Arlene is moving west northwest in the Gulf of Mexico at this hour. The good news is that a strong ridge north of this system will keep the storm well away from Alabama. Landfall is expected in northern Mexico during the afternoon hours on Thursday. While it’s not very likely at this point, Arlene could become a hurricane before landfall. If this system had more time over the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, this system could become a pretty strong system, but it’s only 48 hours away from land, so that is very unlikely at this point.
