got a good size feeder band coming in right now...very gusty winds, heavy rain and the power has flicked on and off twice now. I'll be shutting down the pc before another surge happens.

People are starting to get all bent out of shape here in Houston.

I say bring on the hurricane. It can't come soon enough. The heat and humidity has been so oppressive for so long that we need a cooldown. I for one am looking forward to it.

Peace

Hope I'm wrong, but I think this one will build up strongly as it enters the gulf........good luck to every one and try to be safe - good luck to you all in the Keys as well!

Dr Love -- a hurricane doesn't guarantee a cool down -- Have known it to be hotter and more humid after them so watch what you wish for. Plus if you lose power you don't have your fans or ac to deal with the hot and humid weather.

I have to say I am really glad my niece and her DH left Key West a few years ago especially now that they have a week old baby who would have had to evacuate with them

edit for spelling mistake that I caught -- might not have seen them all though

I agree. I do not think it is strong enough now, but will be later in the week... It depends on the sea temperature and how it goes on...

WW good luck. I am sure you´ll be Ok.

Keep looking and looking and it looks like Texas to me........what strength was Katrina when it exited Florida? Built up pretty strongly afterwards didnt it? Not much land in the keys to calm it down, and theres lots of warm water.......hope I'm wrong.

She's now a Cat 2:



DATA FROM A NOAA PLANE INDICATE THAT RITA HAS REACHED 100 MH WINDS
AND IS NOW A CATEGORY TWO HURRICANE ON THE SAFFIR/SIMPSON HURRICANE
SCALE. THIS WILL BE REFLECTED IN A SPECIAL ADVISORY AT 2 PM EDT.

FORECASTER AVILA

Wow, she's growing fast now, very similar to the way Katrina did.

now that sounds about right, the pressure wasn't matching up to the category.. I think Rita will be a Cat 3 at landfall.

Glad you are ok world watcher . Here we go. Everyone better watch this one. The eye is to pass just south of Keys around 3pm edt.

Exactly! Got a bad feeling - nothing specific, just a feeling. Really hope it's wrong. How are the Keys - anyone heard?

I think the gulf waters are so warm, it will become a 5, and will hit at a hard 4 or 5.

If my memory is right Katrina increased very quickly from a cat. 2 to a cat. 5 because of the high sea temperature.

I think there is a high probability that this can happen again. They should be thinking on how to avoid the damage and the loss of lives... But the most important thing: do they know where it will make landfall?

Looks like Cuba is getting some too

www.goes.noaa.gov...

It is getting large and moving relatively fast which I would think indicates lots of energy in there. Checked the link to NBC6 showing live coverage. ( Thanks World Watcher! ) Hope you're doing OK!

She only needs to pick up 7 mph wind speed at this point to be a 3, winds are 103 needs to be 110 to be a 3. With no real land mass to disrupt it, she going to be a big.
