Look for the cone to shift at the 5 am advisory.

I been waiting (impatiently) for some clarity on the path of this storm so I'd know whether or not to go all mama on my son who lives in New Orleans.

It didn't even occur to me that this storm may be a threat to my daughters who'll be celebrating their birthdays this coming week on what Ike left of the Bolivar peninsula.

What makes Isaac even more worthy of our attention is that the NHC is forecasting this storm to slow down its forward speed dramatically as it approaches the northern gulf coast. The forecast 5 mph forward speed is pretty close to a stationary situation for such a large storm. We all need it to move out quickly!

Scenarios for significant flooding increase as the counter-clockwise rotation will almost certainly be an issue for areas east of the mouth of the Mississippi River.
Obviously the longer the storm remains in the position shown on these new model runs, the more time it has to increase its strength.. which increases its ability to pile up water along the parishes east of the river to Lake Pontchartrain.

Seems like NHC didn't make any changes to the 7am update(from the 4am update). Although some people have mentioned earlier that they are not likely to make drastic changes.

Anyone plan on leaving NOLA today if the forecast doesn't change? Trying to figure out what to do. First time owning a house and pretty sure the neighbors have a generator. What do you plan to do?

Track has shifted to the west. New Orleans back in the cone of uncertainty. Hurricane watch now extended westward to the mouth of the Mississippi River, but not including New Orleans.

Next advisory at 10:00 am (Central time). More definitive advisory would be at 2:00 pm (Central time).

This is utterly frustrating!

I live in Key West. It's just starting to pick up now. We don't expect too much bad weather here.

Good Morning America just ran though this without a lot of hand wringing and rather easily declared that landfall will be between the panhandle of FL and Mobile Bay. The time will be 2am Wednesday.


Of course, they did not have a whole lot of time to discuss the details as they had to move on to a story about a woman and her guardian angel.

My personal plan has always been to stay for anything below a Cat 3. This doesn't look like it will be that. And, frankly, even if it becomes one, if it makes landfall tomorrow afternoon it would probably be too late at this point for evacuation to be safer and more sensible than simply hunkering down. The risk of something possibly happening at home is less than the risk of evacuation absolutely being a long, horrible, expensive and probably futile process this late in the game. The only way leaving could make sense is if you did ASAP, and there's just too much uncertainty to me to want to do that. Evacuating this afternoon or early this evening would be slow and painful.

All the spaghetti models now have tracked west indicating landfall in Louisiana/western Mississippi.

Just hope the National Weather Center doesn't change it's track as well.

Ugh!!!

The computer models typically run four times a day, at 1AM/PM and 7AM/PM. The NHC uses this information to update the forecast track 3 hours later at 4AM/PM and 10AM/PM. Their updates at 1AM/PM and 7AM/PM are just for updating a hurricane's position and wind speed. The next track update from the NHC will come at 10AM this morning.

WHOA!?!?!!? what an outlier...938 is bombing out.

Sheesh. what a week this will be.
