Here are 4 maps that show Hurricane Irma's path

In an updated forecast discussion issued at 3:38 a.m. Friday, meteorologists said the remnants of Irma should be deflected to our southwest and west Tuesday into Wednesday of next week.

Irma is expected to make landfall in Florida this morning and move northward.

As Hurricane Irma remains on track to travel up Florida's middle, Jose had spun into a Category 4 storm, but would likely weaken, according to forecasters.

As of now, the weather service says the rainfall in the Lehigh Valley associated with Irma look to be less than one inch. That is where the high-quality direct measurements provided by weather balloons come in. It radios the data back, providing a detailed cross-sectional snapshot of the state of the atmosphere over most of its depth.

The National Weather Service operates a Facebook page where it typically provides insightful weather information. Each five-foot-diameter balloon carries a small, expendable instrument package that is encased in Styrofoam and measures humidity, temperature and wind as it rises from the ground up to 100,000 feet. Typically, weather balloon launches occur every twelve hours.

Irma is predicted to begin affecting Alabama late this weekend and into the beginning of next week.

Irma might bring severe weather to Athens, but its effects might also be mild.
