We’ll just all have to hope and pray that the computer models all hold between now and next weekend. Currently ALL of them have it going further up the east coast, with no landfall (or significant impact) before SC or NC. Some keep it out to sea altogether. Sure hope so! It’s forecast to be a Cat 3 by Tuesday, and go right over Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic by Wednesday and Thursday.
And then there’s Tropical Depression Lee behind Maria! Please come quickly, November! (end of season) This could be a long next two months.
