7/9, 11pm: ADDING LINKS/MAPS TO SUPER44's ORIGINAL POST.

I'll add more as they become available, and will sticky if needed ~primadox
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
ORIGINAL POST:
According to the NHC, they have upped the percntage for tropical development to 40%. Of course there is, as typical this point, lots of divergent forecasts. Stay tuned, if you are planning a trip to anywhere along the NGOM, from the big bend of Florida, and west to the SELA area. This area currently appears to be the general area for any potential landfall of a developed system. Even if a TS or Hurricane does not form, the weather looks like it will be pretty crappy.

The fact that it's been bright and sunny in New Orleans all morning ... is that meaningful at all? Thought today was going to be a repeat of yesterday in N.O.
Bruce Katz was just talking about a lot of dry air intruding on the storm right now...that's why most of the weather is to the south and to the east of the storm at this moment

Not really, all it means is there is very little convection on the north side. Most of it's to the SW of the center

Seeing the sun shining this morning and so far today actually had me more concerned. Having lived in southeast la. my entire life and going through this so many times I've noticed that usually the day before a storm hits the sun is usually out and the weather is calm. The proverbial "calm before the storm". Note that I'm not a meteorologist and my statement has no scientific backing behind it. lol

You're right. It's a joke. But he did create this shot after Florence.
He didn't "create" anything. He responded to and debunked that conspiracy theory on-air. Cooper is actually one of the more straight up persons on cable news. But, this thread really needs to stay politics free.

A bit touchy are we? I'm pretty sure you just brought up politics, if anyone did. The creation of the image is right there in the photo. Whether it's honest or ethical, I don't know. I don't typically watch major network news nor do I have cable. So I don't and have not watched Anderson Cooper. The fact is, however, that we've seen plenty of weather reporting that was misleading or dishonest in general, enough so that it has become a meme.

Regardless, I was sharing a funny image and making no commentary otherwise. The link to the politics board is above if you'd like to take your qualms over there.

Good info. Explains some things ... 24 hours ago, they were predicting deluge rainfalls both today and tomorrow. Looks like now that if New Orleans gets hit hard (not a guarantee), it would be Friday/Saturday. Actually ... aren't they kind of saying now that Sunday's looking pretty wet, as well?

Otherwise -- as far as the NOLA area is concerned -- this is smelling like October 2016's Hurricane Nate, August 2008's TS Fay, and the 2012 Labor Day weekend "tropical storm" (when businesses were able to remain open even as the thing weakly limped ashore a few weeks before Isaac).

What impacts TS Barry will have between, say, Vermilion Bay and the TX-LA border remain to be seen.

Looks to be making a quick move out of the region by Sunday. Hopefully, the impacts will be minimal. However, to those effected please follow the authorities warnings. If you dont have your local emergency management channel, Twitter, Facebook information I urge you to seek them out now. Unfortunately, people turn to unofficial sources in times of emergency and the confusion unofficial and second-hand "reporting" cause just slow down the receipt of the important announcements.
Stay safe all.

For those that were asking about the port, the USCG just went to condition 'X-Ray' (which will be followed by Yankee and Zulu). X-Ray is the first step in shutting down port operations, halting in-bound traffic, etc.

I would expect to see all vessel traffic come to a stop by tomorrow morning at the latest as vessels transit to their designated anchorages etc.

NAVGEM shows similar, just a hair west.

The lime green TABS track looks crazy compared to the others. It loops around the whole state of Louisiana and into down into Texas before bouncing out through Arkansas.

Thanks. Guess I'm late on that one.

If anyone is in a mandatory evacuation area and staying for the storm and wants to be interviewed please let me know. Getting really odd requests from media partners.
Be sure to interview the most odd looking, unintelligent person you can find. It seems like those are the only ones on camera in times like this.

I hope this storm doesn't go all Hurricane Juan on us. It's almost stationary now and doesn't seem to have any real steering currents. Here's what Juan did.

I remember that one well. It was a late October storm. It never got very strong from a low pressure standpoint, but hung around the coast for several days and kept pumping in the rain & moisture.

Let's not have that again, please! :covri:
