Re: September 2020: Tracking TS Beta

NHC now forecasting Beta to stay a tropical storm. Track remains the same though. One thing Ive noticed is that Beta has a pretty large windfield.

Re: September 2020: Tracking TS Beta

Kinda surprised that there are no flood watches posted anywhere, even on the coastal counties for rainfall. They may not make any track changes at 4, but maybe lower the forecast strength a bit and keep the watches/warnings the same. Just my guess opinion though. They will probably issue watches an...

Re: September 2020: Tracking TS Beta

Yep 12z EURO looks similar to the HWRF showing the system going further inland before being pulled by the trough to the northeast as a remnant low. I think the dry air being pulled from the west is going to make the storm lopsided with most of the moisture north and east of the center. Similar to ho...

0z HMON and HRWF shifted north to Matagorda Bay with heavy rain across the area. I've also noticed that they show landfall sooner on Sunday instead of Monday.

Re: September 2020: Tracking TS Beta

0z Canadian shows a very ugly setup for heavy rain over Southeast Texas. BTW the Canadian and ICON models were the first to sniff Beta out. They were showing the storm before Sally even formed. Those two models have done surprisingly well with tc genesis this season.

Beta will move west as it will have no choice due to strong high pressure building in tonight/tomorrow from the front today.
