Irene Still Headed This Way

The early evening update from the National Hurricane Center has Irene continuing to move toward the outer banks of North Carolina with Ocean City, MD still in its path as well.  There is a little good news in that Irene is forecast to weaken to a category 1 hurricane as early as late tonight, and remain a category 1 storm as it moves north toward Ocean City Saturday night.  Irene should weaken further, down to tropical storm status, as it approaches New York City later Sunday morning.

The not-so-good news is that  on this forecast track, the storm will produce tropical storm conditions west of the bay around the Baltimore metro area Saturday night, with hurricane conditions possible from the central eastern shore south and east to the coast.
