Ready for a a beautiful holiday weekend spent laying out by the pool? Well, sorry. A storm's coming that's going to ruin all your plans.
There's a decent chance tropical storm Bonnie will hit the Southeastern and Mid-Atlantic regions this weekend, and though the storm is named like a really sweet, old neighbor lady, it has the power to completely spoil your Memorial Day getaway. Right now, there's a 60% chance of this storm developing within two days, and a 70% chance of it developing within five days, according to the NOAA report. Guess you should keep your rain coat handy.
AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski commented on the storm's advance, stating, "We expect the system to track slowly toward the northwest through the weekend and end up near the South Carolina or North Carolina coast sometime on Sunday." He also mentioned that the "strengthening and organization into a tropical or sub-tropical (hybrid) system could occur as early as Friday or Saturday," which would suck because you were probably going to the beach one of those days.
Of course, weather fluctuates and hopefully none of this will actually go down. However, if the storm does move onshore, heavy rain will "spread well inland," according to the AccuWeather report.
Anyway, at least you won't have to worry about getting sunburned? Yay?
