Double Trouble: Will Idalia and Franklin Cross Paths?

11 months ago

Meteorologists are predicting pleasant weather for the upcoming Labor Day weekend for much of the Mid-Atlantic region. Despite the promising outlook, individuals planning to visit the beach should exercise caution as there is a developing weather system to consider.

Namely, Hurricane Franklin projected to move towards the northeast direction, and Hurricane Idalia, which just tore through Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas, will head back into the Atlantic. These conditions could lead to the formation of extreme weather and hazardous rip currents up and down the coast.

Information gathered from a NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft revealed that Idalia's strongest sustained winds reached up to 125 mph, causing damage to properties.

Other impacts included a storm surge that threatened lives, as well as heavy, unrelenting rainfall for the region.
