TS Arlene strengthening; Hurricane Watches up on Gulf Coast

At the 11A ET update, Arlene's sustained winds are up to 60 MPH, from 45 at the 5A and 8A update. This may portend Arlene strengthening into a Cat-1 Hurricane before landfall sometime tomorrow.

Hurricane Watches and Tropical Storm Warnings are now up along the Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and western Florida panhandle coasts.

Heavy rains will extend well inland -- mind you, I've got to drive down to Georgia Southern to drop my daughter off Sunday, so I guess I've got to fight the rains while I go.

I doubt you'd be able to tell the difference in rain going to Statesboro and back. It probably won't seem any different than the storms GA and SC have been having the past couple of weeks on an almost daily basis.
