Coitus!
Coitus!

Grumble, grumble, grumble.
It looks more like the TX area based upon the current weather maps, but GOM folks heads up!

Since I'm right in the path, I hope you'll forgive me for trying to blow it over your way.

I'll huff, and I'll puff, and I'll blow the storm over you! :D

I do not blame at all for that and in reality at this the entire GOM west of the MS river could be its ultimate target.

I'm not sure my huffing and puffing was productive. It's supposed rain pretty much all day tomorrow.

Until late last year, I'd worked in disaster recovery for decades.

It's really quite weird not needing--on a professional level--to obsessively follow hurricane season.

That one is a weird one. It is very unusual for such a development path.

Still Hurricane Juan did something like that in the 80s.

Any sign of Jim Cantore? I love what he brings to storm reporting but him showing up is like the finger of doom pointing at your chest.
As of now I bet you got me wrong

John Titor was right

BTW the flooding in NOLA seen on the news was not caused by the TD. It was a very heavy wave if thunderstorms.

That and shall we say leaders who put the " dys" into the word function.

As Louisiana braces for a possible hurricane, it’s a cautionary reminder to always have ‘financial go-bag’

6.5 inches of rain since midnight here at the OShea Armadillo Ranch & Coyote Preserve...but it looks like the eastern rainbands are about to move out of this area.

This is weird one. Mobile AL got 6 inch3s of rain today while NOLA a 100 miles closer to the storm so far is less than1/2 inch of rain.

I am not complaining just surprised.

Yeah, there was a tornado warning north of Pensacola earlier today. Last night they already had a couple feet of water over the main east/west road on Dauphin island.

We had more rain last night but still nothing more intense than a summer thunderstorm.

All ok here. I see NYC lost power, and other parts of LA lost power but so far so good here.

All ok here.

A relative in South LA lost power last night but sonce he has a whole house generator it was barely noticable.

That and a few leaves ( not branches) down is the extent of damage for me and mine. I not complaining and i am very grateful for this grace...just reporting.

Honestly this was and should have no big deal.
However the wild card here was the extremely high river levels. That was a worrisome complication.

That's odd, because my new feeds seem blowing up with doomsday news. Flooding, fire, cannibalism, and so on.

I mean, the news wouldn't mislead people, would it? :roll:

On this Sunday morning, a tropical wave is located over the Atlantic Ocean a couple of hundred miles east of the Central Bahamas, producing disorganized showers and a few thunderstorms. Some slight development is possible during the next few days while the disturbance moves westward to west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph. Get the latest on the tropics by going directly to the NHC website at https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/
