As a supplement to my essay on Maine here is the actual important information on Kyle.
Kyle is only barely being thought of as a hurricane at this moment. The forcasters are using terms like “Ugly” (which means not well formed as a hurricane) and “Convectivly Challenged” in their discussion.
Kyle will come ashore in Maine, somewhere around Eastport, over night (near morning) but it is very unlikely to be a hurricane by that time, having passed over cooler waters and generally being a train wreck of a cyclone.
The fact that this was a tropical storm heading straight north, then turned into a hurricane, and that it is making this far north at all is very interesting. And (as detailed in my other post on Kyle) those in its path need to take it seriously. But this is not Ike, or even Bob. It’s just Kyle.
