Hurricane Patricia is cat-5 and just made landfall in Mexico. And the long range computer models have it heading right for Duckburg Duckford. Usually they hook to the east, but this one is predicted (as much as one can predict weather a couple of weeks ahead, which ain't much) to go pretty straight.
Apparently God wants to punish the Cub fans. (Even more than they've already been punished.)
Texas will get pasted, too. (I'm not sure what they've done recently to deserve it, though.)
UPDATE: I just realized: it's going to dump lots and lots and lots of water into the Mississippi, directly or indirectly. I wonder whether New Orleans is going to survive it?
UPDATE: Wonderduck just reminded me that this weekend was supposed to be the US Grand Prix, in Austin. It's already doing cats and dogs and ducks in Austin, and a couple of the practice sessions were cancelled as a result -- and it's only going to get worse. If the storm proceeds as it has been, it'll be over Texas on Sunday and there will be torrential rains all day.

I'm off the storm track here in S.C., unless it takes a sudden turn East, all I'm going to see is a week or two of mildly rainy weather. Probably have a rainy Halloween.

Looks like Illinois is safe. Patricia was very powerful but also very concentrated, and once off the water it burned out really fast. It's already a "tropical depression" and is expected to vanish entirely by this afternoon.
I was wondering why all the "three day" and "five day" maps didn't predict anything past today, and I guess that's the reason why.
