Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post WLOCP serving hurricanes?

Tuesday October 25, 2011

This is best left to the professionals, but it’s worth keeping an eye on – no pun intended.

There is a strong hurricane – Rina – in the northwestern Caribbean forecast to become a major (Category 3) storm within a day. The current forecast is for the storm, albeit a good bit weaker, to be around the Cuba / Florida Keys area by the weekend. Important: none of the computer models are calling for the storm to come anywhere near Jacksonville. Still, tropical systems can have effects hundreds of miles from their center, so any change in the track, size, and intensity of Rina could have an impact on the game or your travel plans. That looks to be a remote possibility right now, and the National Weather Service out of Jacksonville isn’t very concerned yet.

The current NWS forecast for Jacksonville is about as ideal as you can get: Mostly sunny and breezy, with a high near 73.

Rina 5-day
