PSA New Orleans

PeterB and others, things are looking ominous with Tropical Storm 19 forecast to be a hurricane (and possibly even strengthening further) at landfall.

This, and other areas of concern developing in the tropics (what the hell is Rene doing/going to do?).

Some things to note:

“There is some potential for this system to develop to be even stronger than currently forecast before reaching the northern Gulf, so please pay attention to updates surrounding it and listen to local media and officials for any information specific to your area. Or look at the Local Storm Statements from your local national weather service office.

One interesting bit to note, the track direction is one that has high surge potential for those to the right of landfall as it gives longer periods of onshore winds than a typical track to the north Gulf. So look for high potential for surge flooding along a wider area.”

Watching this one; though I live in central AR, I still work in the New Orleans region (been working remotely for 15 years), and have family & friends in the area, so it's always a concern. As Carnos points out, you never want to be on the eastern side of any storm track, as that's where the storm surge and heaviest rains, winds, etc. will be.

Been viewing re/various posts at SkeetobiteWeather.com; here's hoping the spaghetti keeps going east (and apologies to forumites to LA's east).



Current forecast track (as of Saturday AM):

Yep, been watching this one. With any luck, it'll only be a Cat 1, which basically means severe flooding.

Good grief, this is getting to be a semi-weekly thing, isn’t it?
