In Warnings, I talk about the trend that started with The Weather Channel, to overreact to weather systems in the distant tropics. A week of anxiety followed by three days of actual watches and warnings.
The National Hurricane Center says there is a "low" chance of the system in the Atlantic developing in the next 48 hours.
Yet Facebook, and other social media, are featuring all kinds of forecasts and speculation about the future, if any, of this system.
This storm, if it develops, is ten days or so away. If it develops, many of the forecast tracks have it missing the U.S. altogether.
My advice? Even if you are in the Southeast, forget about this until Thursday or Friday then check back. You'll still have plenty of time to take precautions if a storm actually develops.
