Govt preparing services for Hurricane Lorenzo (RTÉ)

Carlow Weather tweetz:

“Latest [Hurricane Lorenzo] update: The National Hurricane Center track forecast has been adjusted a little to the left to come into better agreement with the latest consensus aids. Although the spread in the models is not as large as it was yesterday, the forecast beyond 48 hours is still of low confidence.”
