Hurricane Franklin holding up traffic

Franklin is a big beautiful storm, with a well developed eye that is mercifully spinning well away from most major interests, save for the air and sea interests of the North Atlantic. He is not getting much attention, because he isn’t going to make landfall anywhere, and will merely work to reroute aircraft and ships.

All that said, he is causing a trough in the mid-Atlantic to slow down, and the rain showers in the Virginias over the weekend dumped enough rain to cause some flash flooding over both states. As Franklin keeps moving, ultimately so will these showers. With luck, Idalia will also steer clear of the region.
