Philippe in the Atlantic, Rita Gulf-bound

8 hurricanes so far, a little over 2 months left in the season, and soon we might see Rita become the 9th hurricane.

Fortunately for us, neither of them look like they will bother us. Folks in the Gulf probably won't be pleased to see Rita heading there in a few days time though. Forecast has it possibly becoming a Cat 3 hurricane towards the end of the week.
