Opening Night Of The NFL Forecast

Good morning bloggers,

As Hurricane Irma continues powerful and a category 5 storm, the NFL season is ready to kickoff over New England.  Take a look at this mornings enhanced water vapor satellite picture:

A storm has just moved off the northeast coast.  Sinking air is in its wake, and this will provide some great weather for the Kansas City Chiefs to go in and play the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots tonight on NBC.  We can see something else on this satellite picture.  Three hurricanes are seen with Hurricane Katia over the southwest Gulf of Mexico, Hurricane Jose off in the central Atlantic Ocean, and Major Hurricane Irma with 180 mph winds sustained near the eye wall tracking just north of the Dominican Republic today and threatening the Bahamas.

There are still model solutions that track Major Hurricane Irma just inland near Miami then back out over water north of West Palm Beach, Florida.  This is the track that the European Model takes. This track is highly dependent on where the hurricane makes that north turn?

Both of these pictures are from Weathertap.com, one of my favorite sites for radar and satellite pictures.  Let’s see how the models trend today. We have three more days to track this system before it makes a mainland United States landfall.

Have a great day. Go Chiefs, and thank you for participating and sharing in this weather experience on the Action Weather Blog featuring Weather2020 and the Cycling Pattern Hypothesis.  Go to Weather2020.com and join in the conversation on the blog over there.  I will check in from time to time.

    Hoping for the best for the SE and the east coast. Not very optimistic about the Chiefs chances tonight. Since 2007, Tom Brady is 52-1 against AFC teams at home. Only loss was in 2014 against the Bills. Brady has also not lost on a Thursday night opening season game. I will be watching both the Chiefs and the Royals tonight. Go Chiefs! Go Royals!
