Can you please remove the second ".com" from my weather underground link in my original post above?
Alex has again formed into a tropical storm will a 991 millibar rating and dropping (that's bad).
The storm took a hard NW turn, then headed almost due west. I'm not sure if it's wobbling or not; we'll know more by the morning.
The more it trends to the north, the longer it will remain in the gulf. The longer it remains in the gulf, the worse this storm will get in
While it's not time to head to the hills, it is time to keep a constant eye on this storm if you live in the western half of the gulf coast.
As of last night, I have not seen any panic buying other then an occasional person (I live in the Houston area).
This storm is very large and is traveling very slow. If this turns into a major hurricane and takes that slow northerly turn, it's going to be very,
If you live along the Texas coast and you know people in the San Antonio, Austin, Dallas corridor, this would be the time to call and ask if you can
pay them a visit if the storm (assuming it becomes a major one) heads your way.
Depending on what happens in the next 12-24 hours, tomorrow may be the day to make tentative hotel arrangements if you don't have other options.
Of course, if you live along the coast, you already know the drill.
Leaving in a mass exodus Hurricane Rita style won't be a pleasent experience so if conditions worsen tomorrow, keep that in the back of your mind.
If this storm is going to hit Texas, tomorrow will be the last calm day before the population goes into preperation overdrive.
Hang on to your hat. Here we go.
