Yo Liz...
« on: July 10, 2019, 03:41:47 pm »
..looks like you'll dodge the bullet on this one  huh




Above: NHC forecast for Potential Tropical Cyclone 2 as of 11 am EDT Wednesday, July 10, 2019.

The National Hurricane Center started advisories on Potential Tropical Cyclone 2 at 11 am EDT Wednesday, flagging a system likely to produce torrential rains and widespread flooding as it heads slowly toward southern Louisiana over the next several days. Tropical storm watches have been hoisted for PTC 2 from Morgan City east to the mouth of the Mississippi River, with a storm surge watch from Morgan City east to the Mississippi/Louisiana border (Pearl River). Hurricane watches could be issued as soon as Wednesday evening.

At midday Wednesday, PTC 2 was still a poorly organized, somewhat elongated system in the northeast Gulf of Mexico, with a low-level center roughly 100 miles south of the western Florida Panhandle. PTC 2s low-level circulation was located about 100 miles further to the southeast, offset from its mid-level circulation. This tilted structure reduces the odds of PTC 2 strengthening rapidly on Wednesday.

In turn, the heaviest thunderstorms associated with PTC 2 on Wednesday morning were actually well northwest of the low-level center, in a convective complex that churned across the New Orleans area. The heavy storms prompted a flash flood emergency and inundated parts of the central city with more than 10 of rain.

I'm hoping it changes it's mind.  We need a good flooding rain where I am.
Always move forward. Never look back.

Nothing.  They say that we may get an inch or two of rain Saturday.  I hope so.  It's dry as a bone and hot as hell.

So far just a light drizzle now and again.  It's supposed to continue like this for several days so hopefully the accumulation will be enough to do some good.

Quit worrying about me, Mug.  We keep having a good drizzle.  It's continuous and will be continuous through tomorrow and part of Monday.  The rain accumation, though slow and over time will be good for the plants after all the heat and drought.

The governor of MS is just now giving a speech to the folks on the gulf coast.  There is no evacuation called for but people were warned to get ready for one.  They're going to get a lot of rain for a long time.  The hurricane has been down graded to a tropical storm but that doesn't mean that it isn't going to dump a ton of water.  Even down there there is no rain.
