Hurricane Coming?

From the Washington Post‘s Capital Weather Gang:

“As of 8 a.m., Joaquin is now a hurricane with maximum sustained winds near 75 mph and expected to strengthen. Although many models have now converged on a Saturday night-Sunday landfall somewhere between North Carolina and New Jersey, last night’s European model (one of the most trusted) still has Joaquin staying out to sea. As described below, the D.C. area is in line for a serious rain threat Friday through Sunday regardless of the track of Joaquin. A direct hit on the mid-Atlantic, with extreme wind locally in addition to potentially flooding rain, is one possible scenario.”
