Re: Possible Labor Day Gulf Storm!

I don't think anyone is really taking into account the enormous amount of moisture that will stream in if that "weak" low actually does verify and meander around down there. The moisture combined with the front from the north will squeeze out some heavy downpours along the Texas Gulf Coas...

Re: Possible Labor Day Gulf Storm!

In the 12Z GFS, the storm looks like it is trapped in a padded room being chased around by rabid squirrels.

It'll be a slap in the face if that front comes in strong enough to blast everything to the south before it does any good.

Re: Caribbean/Gulf Development Next Week?

Ok. I'm curious if Texas is possibly at target. Looks like it's doing the same as GFS; in this last frame at 180 hours (27/00Z) it just starts headed WNW as if it's going to make a northwest/north turn afterward. Central pressure 969 mb, by the way--a bit hard to read on that graphic. http://www.sa...

What would that mean for the track in the GOM?
I only ran it out to 144 hours, but at the time it was on a track straight for the Gulf. I'm rerunning it out to 180 now just out of curiosity.

Re: Caribbean/Gulf Development Next Week?

My model is doing similar to what the CMC was doing before changing its mind today. This is 12Z Sep 25th and it's paralleling Cuba at the time.

Very interesting since it's been so consistent in development. I sure hope I can get to the bottom of Josh's Kestrel problem before another chase comes up.

Re: Caribbean/Gulf Development Next Week?

CMC has been tweaked from last year when it was spinning up everything and its brother.....I am not taken it for granted this year... Oh, I agree; didn't mean to sound like I was bashing it. It's seemed to have some track forecast issues this year but I'd say overall it's much improved over its old...

Remnants of Matthew Inland Over Southern Mexico

Global models have been rather consistent in having some type of development next week in the Caribbean, possibly moving toward the Gulf. I don't know if Josh and Strat are up for it so soon, but I'm already hoping this is another chase opportunity--talk about a reality show! :) http://www.nco.ncep....

Re: Chasing Karl/ Chase partner Josh currently in Veracruz

Grr. Doesn't sound like he is going to set up the BASTARD device until on location. Cory.... Thought it was ok to just set it up and work even while driving? Or is he talking about the Kestrel. Yeah it's okay to set up ahead of time. I think he's worried about the impeller on the Kestrel being used...

Re: Chasing Karl/ Chase partner Josh currently in Veracruz

Glad he's had you to help him out! Sounds like you had him on quite a set up with that ride to Veracruz, which is good since he seemed really frazzled yesterday.

Re: Hurricane Igor Central Atlantic

Figured I'd share this here too. Forecast through 21Z tomorrow. The model crashed after that time, so that's as far as I have. It's for novelty purposes anyway. ;)

Re: Tropical Storm Hermine Heavy Rain/Severe Threat

That rain band just doesn't want to quit. Refiring over southeastern Medina county and Bexar county, both of which were already bombed the past 24 hours.

San Antonio to Austin area getting pummeled. This looks set to train over the same area for quite awhile.

Re: General Tropical Discussion Thread

Got my gif script working, so here's a link to an animated gif of today's KWRF tropical run (2.3 mb in size). It starts with the 10th and runs through the 13th at random time steps since that's how my computer rolls. ;)

Re: Tropical Storm Hermine Heavy Rain/Severe Threat

It's been confusing that some have seen this eastern movement when it has hardly shown much evidence of it since landfall. Steady N to NNW. Otherwise by now it would have been tracking more towards Austin. In some respects a track such of that may have lessened the rain in our area with the banding...
