Bonnie won't affect area, forecasters say

August 26, 1998

Hurricane Bonnie will have "no effect whatsoever on Hagerstown," according to the National Weather Service.

According to the latest computer projections, the hurricane was expected to hit the Outer Banks of North Carolina this morning or this afternoon and then move northeast back out to sea, said meteorologist Barry Goldsmith.

Goldsmith said the most Washington County could expect is winds of 10 to 15 mph.

As for the rest of the weather?

"Lots of sun, then there will be lots of heat. Nothing too unusual," he said.

Forecasts call for sunny and hot for today and Thursday, Goldsmith said.

The rain that fell Tuesday night was due to a cold front to the north and was unrelated to the hurricane, Goldsmith said.
