Tropical Storm Isaias

Chances of rain will increase early this week as Tropical Storm Isaias moves closer to the area, with a possibility for torrential tropical downpours and flooding in the D.C. region.
Even though the storm weakened from a hurricane on Saturday, Isaias — currently near Florida — is forecast to parallel the U.S. East Coast, according to NBC Washington meteorologist Lauryn Ricketts, a path which would bring tropical storm conditions to the region from Monday night through Tuesday.
The storm — pronounced **ees-ah-EE-ahs — had already prompted Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam to declare a state of emergency for the potential of heavy rain and gusty winds from coastal Virginia through Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
While Isaias’ path is still uncertain, it appears increasingly likely that eastern Virginia could be impacted and must prepare for the possibility of flooding, high winds and potential storm surge, a news release from Northam’s office said.

Yep.

Any reason not to?  Hurricanes don't limit their tracks to only English speaking countries.

On THIS side of the pond, our storms are named alternatively by the Brit / Irish meteorological teams ...

I always thought the naming 'thang' was from your side of the pond ... it was, but from the Caribbean ..

Ah well, at least the Brits can learn how to pronounce Aoife  EE-fa ( meaning beauty )

Some others...

Boys’ names
Tadhg – pronounced Tige, like Tiger but without the ‘r’.

Cian – pronounced KEE-an

Cillian – pronounced KIL-ee-an.

Eoin – pronounced O-in.

Oisin – pronounced O-sheen.

Girls’ names
Aoife – pronounced  EE-fa.

Ciara – pronounced KEE-ra.

Niamh – pronounced NEEV.

Saoirse  - pronounced  SEER-sha or SAIR-sha.


BTW, how many of you didn't know Svetlana means Bright ( full of ) light ?






We'll be back, EU ..and as a certain 'gentleman' couldn't accept my offer to 'bury the hatchet' .. Don't trust a clueless Californian 'business owner' who cannot even quote me, honestly ..
