Still way out in the Atlantic, but one to keep an eye on. Here's hoping she takes a turn north before she gets to land.

Here comes trouble. Hurricane Irma built an eyewall over the warm waters of the Eastern Atlantic on Thursday morning, and is now rapidly intensifying, becoming a Category 2 hurricane with 100 mph winds at 11 am EDT. Irma is the fourth hurricane of this active Atlantic hurricane season, and comes three weeks before the usual September 21 date for the season's fourth hurricane. Irma appears destined to become a dangerous long-track major hurricane that could potentially impact the islands of the Caribbean as well as the mainland U.S. next week and the following week.

Could be a Cat 5 they said. But only cause of global warming.

Seriously though, it sounds like it'll be a big one - I hope it stays far away.

Waaaay too early to worry. The American and European models are about as far apart as they get on this one. But hurricanes seem to be more on people's minds for some reason.

Hopefully it curves out, sounds like it will be a big one if it doesn't.

Worse, it sounds like Jose will be forming up in the next week in its wake, and could provide a nasty double whammy.

With all due respect....this is not the first time you've tried to make a slight to the idea of climate change in light of a natural disaster. It's unhelpful; not to mention insensitive and borderline obnoxious.

Believe what you want to and don't believe in what you don't. No need for the continued jabs and over-the-top downplaying of science you don't agree with in relation to current events.

Way too soon to tell what impact if any Irma will have on the US; certainly worth paying attention to.

I'm planning a beach trip for mid September so I suspect that will be right about the time NC has a tropical system come ashore!
