Lee remnants bring flood problems to the East

The remnants of Tropical Storm Lee combined with a stalled frontal boundary will bring widespread rainfall to the eastern U.S., particularly along the Appalachians. 1-2+ inches of rain is expected from northern Alabama and northern Georgia up through the Northeast over the next few days, with a narrower swath of 2-4 and localized areas of 4+ inches of rain.

Katia, which is now a Category 3 Major Hurricane, should miss the U.S. as it nears late this week. I don’t have any particular concerns with this system. The Canadian Maritimes have small chance of landfall with Katia.

I also need to post more Irene stuff and verify my summer forecast (which did well!).
