Re: September 2019 - Tracking TS Fernand(Gulf)/ Hurricane Dorian

Like many I’ve been worried sick about Josh. I’m so happy to hear that he is okay. A piece of good news in what can only be described as a heap of castrophe.

Re: FEBRUARY 2019: Strong Cold Front/Rollercoaster WX Continues

Currently watching Live PD on A&E right now and they are showing a live major 5+ car crash on an interstate overpass in Williamson County, TX which is one county north of Travis, Co (where Austin is). Think I heard seven ambulances are on scene and they had to shut the interstate down on both sides...

Re: August 2017: Increasing Rain Chances/Tracking The Tropic

This Euro run is unreal. I can't believe what I see. My brain won't let me believe that. I realize it is only one model run but yes ... very, very concerning. The 12z Euro shows rainfall totals over the next 8 days of 12-20" in Harris County alone, much of that falling late Saturday into early next...

Re: August 2017: Typical August WX/ Tracking The Tropics

Here in Austin it reached 101 at Camp Mabry today, 99 at the airport. This was the 40th day this year when Mabry hit 100 or higher. I believe in 2013 we had 42 days and we should beat that. Of course the bar is set high with the 2011 nightmare (an incredible 90 days).

Hoping we finally see rain soon.

Re: August 2017: Typical August WX/ Tracking The Tropics

Based on satellite this morning, it appears rumors of Harvey's death were greatly exaggerated. ;)

Re: August 2017: Typical August WX/ Eye On The Tropics

Given the time of year, the pattern, and the activity in the central Atlantic, it's hard for me to believe that there won't be at least one named system entering the Gulf of Mexico in the next two weeks.

Re: June 2017:Weekend Rains/Stalled Front

Very dangerous heat indices here at 4 pm in South Central Texas ranging between 110-114 right now. Sure hoping the latest short range models are correct and that rain is coming tomorrow.

Re: June 2017: ALT PTC #3 / Tropical Storm Watch Issued

I realize looks can be deceiving when viewing satellite loops on these kinds of systems, but after reviewing the 48-image GOES 16 visible satellite of the Gulf ... it doesn't look like this thing is moving right now. At all.

Re: June 2017: Tracking INVEST 93L / Gulf Of Mexico Threat

I won't hazard a guess at what 93L is going to do. However, I do have a lot of confidence in both the Euro and UKMet models and how they're handling the overall setup. Both models consistently beat the GFS in 5- and 6-day skill scores in the Northern Hemisphere.
