Current map with wind gusts on.


For those of you that don't know.. These are called Wind Barbs. Direction of the wind goes from flag to pole if that helps. Each long line represents 10kts. Half is 5kts.


See that white flag over the gulf? That's 59kt report from a station there.

Like New Orleans reporting 32kt wind "gusts", not sustained. Winds not the issue as we been saying. Not many reporting over 40kt gusts at the surface.

I'll likely be getting tropical storm winds and quite a bit of rain eventually. Light rain this afternoon blowing in gusts. Some limbs falling out of trees. Been feeling tropical since yesterday.

Tropical storm conditions here for tonight and expecting scattered power outages. The main threat will be the potential flooding. Local meteorologist is calling for up to 5-15 inches of rain in my area. Bands of heavy rain could come through the day tomorrow and tomorrow night.

The media is out of control

The City of New Orleans is not taking any B.S. from the Washington Post.

That first flash flood risk map above is the % chance of seeing flash flooding within 25 miles of any given point.

Sat 13July2019 5pEDT/4pCDT: Winds 65mph, moving NNW 7mph, pressure 997mb. Continuing to slowly weaken now that broad center is over land. Expected to become a Tropical Depression (Winds 38mph or less) sometime Sunday, so downed trees and power lines threat will lessen then but anywhere grounds saturated could be possible. Hurricane Warning has become Tropical Storm Warning. Tropical Storm Warning east of the mouth of the Mississippi River has been discontinued.

Obs:
Winds:
-Cypremort Point, LA sustained 62mph (USGS)
-Eugene Island, LA sustained 55mph, gust 72mph (NOAA)
-New Iberia, LA sustained 45mph, gust 61mph (Acadiana Regional Airport)

Power outages:
LA: 129,000+
MS: 2,600+
AL: 2,900+

Rain:
-Radar estimated 4-6inches has fallen just South of Mobile through Dauphin Island and offshore.
-Radar estimated 4-6inches has fallen JUST off SE tip of LA, SE of Pilottown, LA.
-Radar estimated 6-8inches has fallen JUST offshore near coastal March Island (S of Lafayette, LA).
-VERY heavy bands of rain still trying to rotate on up into the coast. This is a SSLLLOOOWW moving storm. Whoever gets rain can get a lot quickly. Likely will be sharp cutoffs in final totals where go a few miles and you may go from only some rain to widespread flooding.

Surge via Weather Channel:
Amerada Pass: +6.2ft
Eugene Island: +4.9ft
Lake Pontchartrain: +3.0ft

Here is drone video of some of the Plaquemines Parish, LA levee over-topping, looks like people calling it a 'back' levee, so smaller earthen ones. Over-topping can eat away and cause levees to fail.

What’s hurting is the incredibly slow pace of the storm. It isn’t torrential rains but it’s just sitting over some areas constantly raining with winds. The soil is weakened and trees are falling over. Not a massive disaster storm but it is bad for those stuck in the bad parts of the storm.

One mobile home was destroyed when a tree fell on the home. What made it worse was there was a bee hive in the tree. The bees attacked the people in the home and rescue people trying to get them out the home.

Rain totals to come have been lowered some. That’s still a LOT of rain possible!
