Re: September 2020: Tracking TS Beta

So everybody seems kind of ‘blah’ abut this setup. If you told me a month ago that there would be a dying tropical system 70 miles from Houston with us in the right top quadrant and it was forecast to hang around for 2-3 more days, I’d have looked into a pontoon boat. I’m actually quite nervous abo...

Re: September 2020: Tracking TS Beta

Friendswood area getting pummeled again. Sheesh. I grew up there and Friendswood link used to flood like crazy in heavy downpours.

Re: September 2020: Tracking TS Beta

The CoC appears to have retrograded a few miles SE. Still just off the coast! It sure looks like Beta (I still don’t know whether to say he or she lol) has stalled. The radar app I use (MyRadar) has the circulation sitting in the same spot since around noon. Possibly a tad further offshore but it’s...

Re: September 2020: Tracking TS Beta

Banding features are definitely there for continued rain over night if this keeps up. Likely moderate rain rates over hours. Bayous and creeks (even the soil) can handle this kind of rain. If rain rates drastically increase then some flooding could start becoming a reality.

Re: September 2020: Tracking TS Beta

I am at 3" of rain since rain started yesterday. I would guess 5" - 7" isn't out of the question for my area when this is all said and done. Of course that could be lower or increase depending on where the bands start training. Here is the latest from Jeff Lindner: Beta nearing landfall near Matagor...

Re: September 2020: Tracking TS Beta

HRRR running and shows a little lull in activity in a few hours but then ramps it up again over night. Primarily over Brazoria and Ft Bend counties and South Westward. However, it also shows Beta moving SW towards Corpus.. Not sure how much to believe that? Is HRRR showing ANYTHING for the Beaumont...

Re: September 2020: Tracking TS Beta

Closing in on 2.5" here in Richmond and rain is picking up in intensity. Looks like radar is going to continue to fill in. It will be interesting to see if it pulses down tonight or if it intensifies similar to past storms at night.

Re: September 2020: Tracking TS Beta

Looks like we may have landfall per radar. https://weather.cod.edu/satrad/nexrad/index.php?type=HGX-N0Q-1-24 Almost. There's wobbling and Beta moves NW right at Matagorda. Pretty good entraining over southern Galveston Island into Alvin and League City and then Sugar Land. Could be more twisters po...
