Ernesto slows and strengthens, Nice Day here in NC

Ernesto is surprising me a bit. He slowed to 18 mph (which helps the storm structure stay together) and instead of running headlong into dry air and shear has a nice environment to develop. The other system over the Bahamas yesterday is now moved just east of FL and is running out of space but still has inflow and outflow... so that one may bother FL with heavy rains + strong T-Storms ...BUT... not an organized banded storm.

Here in NC we are benefiting from the simplest of weather principles: High Pressure flows into Low. Therefore a NW flow and drier air is making for a great summer day.  Time to mow the yard so that next weeks rain and t-storms can grow it back again :>(
