Monday October 8 2018
No rest for the weary. We have fog problems and Tropical Storm Micheal is expected to become a hurricane today. Hurricane Watches have been issue for the northern Florida Gulf Coast. That storm will reach us with rain later in the week. A full report on that storm below include the latest satellite loop and forecast tracks.
We start of this Monday morning with a muggy feel to the air and low visibility. The hint of leftover summer air and long nights has allowed the moisture in the air to condense and the result is a Dense Fog Advisory for many counties west of the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. This is one of those confusing times when the National Weather Service local offices don’t seem to communicate. Fog is thick on the Eastern Shore as well and has resulted in school delays for Kent, Queen Annes, Caroline, and Dorchester Counties. But there has not been an advisory issued by their local office in Mount Holly NJ.

Hurricane Michale is expected to become a hurricane today but may reach Category 2 or 3 intensity Tuesday before making landfall.
Micheal is expected to be a hurricane when it makes landfall on the Florida Panhandle late Tuesday or Wednesday morning. Then the track brings it north and curves across southeast Virginia Thursday. Heavy rain will spread into central Maryland.
The bulk of the rain from Michael will reach us Thursday into Friday morning. Then clear out for the weekend. It appears the heaviest rain will fall south of Baltimore, but our area will get moderate to heavy rain and possible severe storms.
