5 Day Forecast Prediction For Hurricane Hanna

While much of the Labor Day weekend was focused on Hurricane Gustav, folks along the eastern seaboard of the U.S. have been keeping their eyes on what is now Hurricane Hanna. Hanna became a hurricane yesterday and is expected affect folks on the east coast. It’s a bit too far out to know where she will hit, but all projections appear to have her making landfall somewhere around the Georgia, South Carolina coast by the weekend. Of course that will be refined the closer we get, but certainly bears watching.

There’s plenty of tropical activity taking place right now including several new disturbances out in the Atlantic. It’s probable that some other than Hanna will affect the U.S. in the coming days. You can see them all by clicking here.

Between now and the weekend, look for mostly sunny days with hot tempertaure creeping back into the 90’s for afternoon highs. Thunderstorms are possible by Friday.
