Morning OZ;

Gotta get cracking with the clean-up of Gustav..... we still have many power poles/lines down..... tons of trees downed to cut up and haul away.

I'm hoping the sheer tendancy kicks in and knocks Gustav down a bit. I'd guess Hanna & Gustav are far enough apart to not engage the Fujiwara effect, but you'd know that more than myself (as well as all wx info).

Yeah got the latest infra red sat image here at the moment

Good organisation and rotation, no discernible eye (prob clouded over at the moment). Hopefully it swings away from New Orleans

What happened to the Home Depot and Lowes commercials? You would think now is the time to start advertising Hurricane Specials......

Good luck to all you in the strike zone, heed the warnings and watch your wallet and report price gouging!

God bless

Ok, latest Gustav update has it at a cat-3 hurricane. Forecasts are tipping it to cross as a cat-4 which is weaker than Katrina but still very strong. Not sure if movement will continue at NW

OZ, have you peeked at the shear tendancy? cimss.ssec.wisc.edu........ Contary to that..... the SHIPPS model ftp.tpc.ncep.noaa.gov..., which calls for decreasing shear. boooooooo!

Gotta hope the steering layer kicks in to nudge it away from NOLA. cimss.ssec.wisc.edu...

Levees can't take a Cat 4 IMO. I know of two people personally that aren't leaving. They left for Katrina, and their house was looted. Damn, people are screwed up sometimes. Storm's coming, let's Loot! weeeeeeeeee!

Interested in your analysis of Gustav's landfall and such. Not a challenge, just want to learn from you. \

Cheers friend

I thought a coupla days ago that the steering currents might well push Gustav closer to Mobile or eastward. I don't see ANY model concurrence for this solution. Other than the Canadian, which seems to want to develop everything into a Cat -6, and the HWRF, there seems to be pretty much of a model agreement for NOLA. dammit.
