Thurs 8-Oct 10aCDT,11aEDT

Winds 105mph(165km/h)
Moving NW 14mph(22km/h)
Pressure 968mb
Center about 400miles(645km) S of Cameron, LA
Hurricane winds extend up to 35miles(55km) from center, TS winds 125miles(205km)

NHC says highest surge is expected somewhere between just East of where it peaked in Laura from near Rockefeller Wildlife Refuge & Port Fourchon, LA (Rt.1)(Laura peaked just West of Grand Chenier). Those last minute wobbles will determine the final landfall point and subsequent surge values (typ highest near and to the East of the center). The shape of Vermilion Bay and direction of incoming wind will likely collect a lot of water.

11aCDT/12pEDT: Delta has cleared out an eye now. Measuring about 45miles in diameter. A reminder not to focus on a landfall point, effects will be felt well away from the center as well. https://twitter.com/mjventrice/statu...31366222000130

Here’s an animation showing potential high wind shear just as storm nears the coast which should help induce weakening as comes in but still will be a hurricane: https://twitter.com/pppapin/status/1314350609924067328

Traffic on i10 has been insane today and still backed up for miles in the Lake Charles region. Laura clearly fresh on residents minds.

Reminder Lake Charles radar is still out from Laura. Overlap from Houston, Polk Army Airfield and Slidell covering.
Tornadoes may start to be possible later this evening and into tomorrow as rain bands come in more later.

845pCDT/945pEDT - Infrared satellite imagery shows the northern eyewall becoming better organized. May be trying to strengthen one last time. But air recon flying in/out of storm data shows storm still steady though at the moment.

I'm worried about this one... Just had a relentless downpour this evening (my digital gauge recorded 4.68"). The saturated ground will make it easier for trees to topple when Delta comes tomorrow evening. Plus possibly another 5-12 inches on top of what we already had.

Thurs 8-Oct 10pCDT,11pEDT
Winds 120mph(195km/h)
Moving NNW 12mph(19km/h)
Pressure 955mb
Center about 285miles(455km) S of Cameron, LA
Hurricane winds extend up to 40miles(65km) from center, TS winds 160miles(260km)

No surprise, there’s the slight bump up in winds as satellite showed us it was getting a little better organized earlier. Watch those scattered showers coming in overnight. Later tonight tornadoes closer to the Gulf coast will be possible in bands, these are typically very brief and usually weaker, they typ travel with the rain band. Tree & power issues usually aren’t an issue until you start to get around 40mph winds or higher (gust or sustained).
