Earl Tracking East Of Hatteras

As of late Thursday evening hurricane Earl had weakened to a category 2
storm with maximum sustained winds of just over 100 mph.  The forecast
keeps Earl on a track that will take the eye of the storm a couple 
hundred miles east of Ocean City Friday afternoon, then northeast 
toward Nantucket,MA Friday night. If the track holds, most of the 
dangerous wind and rain will stay off shore.  However, Ocean City 
will likely experience a period of tropical storm force winds (40 mph
or greater), a few showers, and heavy surf as the storm passes by.
Rapidly improving weather conditions are expected at the coast Friday
night into Saturday.
