Ike; Virginia should be OK

Worry about “what’s next” weatherwise is not surprisingly making headlines again.  Ike is the storm of the moment for this week.  The way things are shaping up, though,  it appears that Virginians have little to worry about.  The track of Ike should take him across Cuba into the Gulf, and then ultimately target U.S. landfall in the western Gulf Coast region.

Eventually, the track of Ike’s remnants may recurve north, then northeastward, so late in the game (i.e. late next weekend or later) we may end up seeing some residual tropical moisture over parts of the East after he’s been over land for several days.  But even this is questionable, as Ike could stay far to the south.  So, there’s a good chance Virginia will see no effects at all.
