I wanted to give an update to the Board regarding Saturday's weather. I just received a phone call from MGoKid today. She just issued a "No Fly Zone" for all Military Aircraft for the Carolina's. She suspects this "No fly Zone" will grow as the week progresses. This storm is gaining strength.
Now her forecast is slightly different from the Hurricane Center; however, she says the rain total will increase in the DC area. She maintains her original forecast that the center of circulation will remain off the coast due to the High Pressure system in-land. So the heavy thunderstorms should not affect the coast.
Her prediction is there will be very limited lightening, if any. However, 6" of rain from this storm is likely.
