    Are they still overestimating the wind speed as you suspected yesterday Steve?

    I see it is still ranked as a tropical storm with some strenghtening till landfall.

    Bit of a storm in a teacup this one I think, pardon the pun, unless there is some weird high surge?

    Agree buoy 42003 seems to be nearest and showing gust up to 50 and continous winds about 40, there is a gap to the buoys along the coast though.

    If it does get to cat 1 hurricane that will be it I think.

    Has that area been affected by low rains this summer? Might bring some relief to farmers ???


  3. Anyone can see it is not as organized as Katrina.

    Strengthening hurricanes bring more wind down to the surface.
    Dry air entrained (as now with Isaac and with Irene too) disrupts the process of strengthening much more than anything else. Can be determined by the presence of lightning in the storm bands.
    The wind field is very big so surge may be a real problem over a large quadrant from NO to Mobile.
    (Even if it doesn’t get higher than 5 or 6 feet.)
    This type of storm does tend to continue to dump lots of rain over the land as it comes in.
    Drought may no longer be a problem in the Mississippi watershed, although flooding may well become one.

    Don’t forget – Obama lowered the sea levels. He is directing the path of the storm. It’s made to order. If this thing hits New Orleans Obama (don’t let a crisis go to waste) will win the election.
