Hello Everyone! Just thought Id start the hurricane watch for 2012 since I live in a hurricane zone and we watch these locally very closely. Hurricane season starts June 1st, but we have a storm brewing. The storm will not hit land, but it is a good reminder for us to get prepared! Stock up on your supplies is 2012 afterall!

Heres Alberto:
Albertos Path

Alberto won't have an impact on the Northeast. Instead, a plume of somewhat deeper moisture (we haven't decided to name those yet) will be channeled north, then northwestward toward the Eastern Seaboard, well detached from Alberto. While the deepest tropical moisture will remain over the western Atlantic Ocean, this increased moisture will bring some welcome rain (if you're a gardener, that is...if you're commuting, not so much) to the Northeast through at least Monday.

Take out your umbrellas!
