TD3 for now...Bonnie after the HH get in there this afternoon. Heads up oil. This may stay south of the main spill area which would bring a strong easterly fetch over the spill. Southern LA and toward the TX coast could be wet and oily by Monday. Blech. Ill take the 102 temp and 110 Heat index over that.

Is this storm going to end up affecting us sometime next week?

@capsnumber1: See the tracking map here -

Bonnie's remnants could be picked up by a trough next week and carried eastward, but the summer pattern is for such stuff to pass south of us.

If you're looking for rain, we need a TD/TS coast-hugger (with apologies to all the folks at the beach).

Could recurve our way...probably on a dance night.
