Won't happen.

Anyways. It is now a tropical depression.... and will be a tropical storm tomorrow... chances of hurricane are slim IMO... maybe a category 1...

I really wish someone could show me how you guys link the actual images. I get so sick of going back to check my links and finding them dead.

Anyway, latest report on Gulf Storm system. Weather Underground has listed it as TD 13


The aircraft data and buoy observations support an initial intensity of 30 kt. Although there is wind shear over the cyclone...an upper-level anticyclone is forecast to build over the Gulf of Mexico during the next day or so. This should provide a more favorable upper-level environment for strengthening. However...since the circulation is large only gradual strengthening is anticipated. The official intensity forecast follows this reasoning and is close to the SHIPS/lgem guidance.



The depression is expected to move very slowly during the next 5 days prolonging the period of tropical storm conditions and heavy rainfall over portions of the northern Gulf Coast.


Source

And the next link is weather underground's tracking map which shows TD 13 making landfall as a Tropical Storm. If it does, this will be a non event and will actually be a good thing cause this area needs rain badly. It would actually be better if it turned more West and made landfall in parts of Texas as well, but I will take what I can get.

I've seen some new models... predicting Katia up to September 9... and if it follows it... it's heading right on NYC for September 11... and it's gonna be pretty strong.

We shall see.

And the latest from what is now called tropical depression 13 in the gulf of Mexico.




Tropical Depression Thirteen has developed over the Gulf of Mexico. As you can see on the projected path map below, this system is a very slow mover so it is poised to bring torrential rain and coastal flooding to parts of the northern Gulf Coast.

Well thank god it's only gonna be winds at 60 mph.... hopefully not too much rain.

Well here goes.

Louisiana declares emergency as storm brews

Louisiana has declared a state of emergency as it prepares for a tropical depression to bring up to 15in (38cm) of rain over the weekend.

Tropical Depression 13 - to be named Lee if upgraded, as expected, to a tropical storm - is creeping north through the Gulf of Mexico.

Offshore platforms for Exxon Mobil, BP and Shell were shut down on Thursday.

Stay safe in Louisiana!

Oh my,guess they are not expecting the levees to hold from a little ol' tropical depression.
Thank you government for fixing them to hold up against,what,a rain storm.
Sorry,NOLA,fema is out of money now.And it has only just begun.

I'm sorry to be so sarcastic,but gas prices are going to soar and the government has failed us again.
Be safe down there and heed the warnings.

I will stay safe, I can only pray the levees hold, I think they will, I hope they will, not much more I can do, been there done that 5 years ago


Anyway, here is the latest on the storm:





NEW ORLEANS -- A tropical storm warning has been issued for the coast of the northern Gulf of Mexico -- from Pascagoula, Miss., to Sabine Pass, Texas.

Information gathered from reconnaissance aircraft led the National Weather Service to announce the formation of Tropical Depression #13 Thursday evening. The system was moving toward the northwest with maximum sustained winds of less than 40 miles per hour.

The National Hurricane Center projects the system will dump 10 to 15 inches of rain over southern areas of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

Some areas could receive up to 20 inches of rain.

WDSU Chief Meteorologist Margaret Orr said the system is highly unlikely to reach hurricane strength.

Louisiana's governor has declared a state of emergency and several Louisiana parishes have issued similar declarations.

This hurricane, Katia seems to be slow mover too, and it seems to have weird route. It has moved almost straight route and went much more north than first expected. If it continues to go this same route, it will hit North Carolina. Good it passed warm waters so its not getting much stronger.

Here is the latest report on Katia.


once again tonight...there is an increase in organization of the cloud pattern with the formation of a round central dense overcast and a better defined outflow in conventional IR images. I have been lucky enough to have several microwave passes over Katia tonight. These data show a much better organized inner core structure than in earlier passes...but the circular ring of convection representing the mid-level eye feature continues to be displaced to the north of the low-level center due to shear. This suggests that the cyclone might not be as well organized as it seems in conventional imagery. Having said that...the initial intensity has been kept at 60 knots based on a blend of the latest Dvorak T-numbers. As stated in the previous advisory...Katia could reach hurricane status again at any time...and since the shear should begin to relax in about 12 to 24 hours according to the SHIPS model...a gradual intensification is indicated in the official forecast.


weather underground

Now for your on the ground Lee Update, SW Louisiana has seen plenty of rain and winds since early this morning. The first rain bands made it on shore around 4:30 am local time. I got off work around 6am and had the pleasure of riding my motorcycle home. Luckily for me the winds did not really kick up until after I made it home, but the rain did sting a bit


Thus far there is nothing happening than what you would have expected from this type of storm. Localized flooding in low lying areas. Wind all day. I missed most of it cause with all the rian coming down I slept like a baby all day. Tropical Storm conditions are expected all night and most of Sunday as well with the winds starting to ease up around early Monday morning.

Thanks to Vitchilo for sending me detailed instructions on how to post pics. We are now going to find out if I can follow directions well or if I am a complete idiot who just can not keep up with technology


Anyway here is the current 5 day projection from Weather Underground showing the expected turn of Katia. At this point, I am not putting a whole lot of stock into these projections. Thus far, Katia has not done anything she was expected to do. This storm was projected to be a Cat 3 by Friday. Didn't happen. There was nothing that indicated this storm would weaken which it did before quickly blowing back up to hurricane strength.
