Hurricane Kyle to affect Maine

While the Atlantic tropical season has quieted down considerably since Ike, we now have another system churning through the western Atlantic. Kyle is moving due north between the east coast of the U.S. and Bermuda. With wind of 75 mph as of 4pm CDT, Kyle has just reached hurricane status. The current track takes the storm to the Maine/New Brunswick, Canada border overnight Sunday night. A Hurricane Watch is posted for much of the Maine coastline north of Portland.

Computer models are pointing to a possible system forming in the Gulf of Mexico in a few days and moving across the Florida Peninsula late in the week. We'll need to monitor this situation for possible development. Be sure to check out the MWN Tropical Page for the latest on current and any potential Atlantic storms.
