Again, not trying to be a smart ***, just looking for explanation for those of us who don't follow weather closely.

I don't watch the local news on T.V. but I'm sure they will be all over this before the day is out.

Edit: I'm thinking the Eclipse stole the show yesterday in the news. Back on track today.

Thanks yet again to Johnny as well as the others who posted info. This is literally the first I've heard of the approaching storm but if these guys say it's coming, it's dam sure coming. Now I know.

Is this what you are talking about when you mention the ULL? I was just looking at that and wondering what this may do to the storm
The Upper Level Low is visible on Satellite imagery moving westward across the Gulf. It's very high in the atmosphere.. that will lead to a weakness which, whatever Harvey is, will "feel" and move towards that weakness.

There is also a frontal boundary that will stall out that further complicates things.

I never cancel plans based on weather forecasts, unless it's Johnny's. I have learned a lot about how this stuff works and is predicted from his threads over the years. All you coastal folks take care.

Having to rethink my plans on the river this weekend.

Lol, I wouldn't call them pro's by any means, just that it seems like they do whatever they can to hype storms, no matter how minimal they are.







I gotcha. I wasn't questioning any prediction, more of looking for some insight as to why the news wouldn't cover a storm given their disposition to hype anything and everything. Trying to figure out what was different this time.

You can see the low in the upper levels spinning here, just south of Louisiana. Its moving SW fairly rapidly, if the storm was wound up already and fairly strong I think the ULL would have minimal affect on it. But in these early stages I could entertain a storm going farther north than expected right now. There is axweakness in the ridge over Tx so we are definitely in the line of fire, how far north or south along the coast is still a best guess...

Yes sir and the Euro run seems logical maybe with a run towards Corpus then hugging the coastline and then coming inland in Louisiana. Also just can't rule out the stronger model runs like the GFS with rapid intensification all the way up till landfall. As of now, I don't see anything in the Gulf that would keep this storm in check. Good ventilation, low wind shear, bath water in the GOM etc.

It could be late Wednesday or early Thursday before it gets going. That does not leave much time with a late Friday to early Saturday landfall. Need to start preparing now if your on the coast. Really hope this is nothing more than a tropical storm.

Timeline:

A few days ago (like 3) every model had this one in southern Mexico.

Two days ago it fizzled out to a tropical wave with no models showing a Texas impact.

Late yesterday, one model and Johnny had it possibly hitting Texas hard -- fully half of the models still showed south of Brownsville.

By 6 am, there were no models showing a Mexico hit.

At this rate, either Johnny will be right (or it will hit Pensacola by Saturday).

The path above takes it right over SA. It will be very difficult to get around SA. If your coming and staying in a hotel, my advise is to stay there and don't leave. Or don't come at all. Gonna be a dangerous situation if it happens as predicted.

Not necessarily Evinrude, but the mechanics that worked on it for the last 3 years are not on my good side. I think they over looked an injector problem that caused the dead cylinder.

Latest GFS run out. Thankfully it has backed down off of a major cane. It shows a minimal hurricane around Corpus for now.
