    not really a weather/hurricane question, but I’ll ask any way. Approximately, how many square miles is in a “square” framed by the lat and long lines in the Gulf? I know it’s not a true square the further North you go the shorter the distance between the longitudal lines it gets.

      But on a serious note, how lucky has the East coastline been this tear. So many named storms and the only rememberable damage came from Isaias. There have been many storms that could have been much worse, seemed like storms were battling wind shear, dry air and sinking atmosphere all season. In a more favorable year we could have seen a much more devastating impact to the US. Louisiana has taken the brunt, let’s make sure to take care of them in their time of need.

        There are a couple of ways to look at this one. Just like with Laura it is all about location.

        Seems like most of SW Louisiana is in Houston right now. They are always welcomed there

    Delta generates heavy rainfall and thunderstorms from Texas to Alabama.

    i think it is gunna die out

  • random says:

    For the 10th storm ever- you can’t assume the hurricane’s gender.

    What category are we expecting landfall at?

  • ren says:

    The radar shows heavy rainfall in eastern Texas and western Louisiana.

  • ren says:

    Very low pressure in the eye of the Delta.

  • Zen says:

    At least Delta is not a cat 3. It’s is down to 110mph i predict a cat 2 landfall of 100mph

    We are starting to get heavier gust now in Louisiana. When is the next report?

    • Clay says:

      It’s unlikely he posts any more updates on this one. You can check out his twitter, he posts more on it – but not videos.

      He mostly only posts when there is a chance of something hitting land. Once it hits the land, the forecast is over.

    I don’t believe the local weather service. They are always hyping it up so you stayed tuned to watch their commercials

  • Anonymous says:

    Using a anemometer. 45 mph now with gust up to 60mph. Not very powerful as predicted. The news will probably show a trailer park tomorrow that got destroyed. Maybe a poorly built barn or damage from the last storm made worse by this one😴

  • Storm observer says:

    Delta moved fast the entire time, unlike many previous storms. What do you guys think about the parallels of stagnant steering currents/slow moving storms, “global warming” and the exponential increase in wind turbines? What about the energy removed from the earth’s steering currents and the loss of natural cooling air flow that is converted to electrical power? What happens when the wind doesn’t flow around the earth?

  • ren says:

    “The center of Delta made landfall a little more than 10 miles from where deadly Hurricane Laura slammed into the coast in August. While Delta is not as powerful as Laura — which left much damage that still hasn’t been fixed — it does have a broader wind field, Sater said.
    CNN’s Martin Savidge, in Lake Charles, Louisiana, said just after Delta made landfall that the rain was incessant and the wind increased dramatically.
    Thousands of blue tarps that had been covering roofs damaged by Laura were blowing through the city. Debris piled up on road sides was being sent like missiles through the air.”

    When I was a child in school our teacher scared us with the thoughts of global cooling. Now they blame the storms on climate change. My grandfather laughs about that all the time. He used to say the climate is always changing its what we call the 4 seasons. He said they can not predict the weather tomorrow without certainty. Back in his day when the weather got rough they would close all the shutters until the winds died down. Never knew when a hurricane was coming until it got there. They were always prepared with food storage

      Just stop….

      Hurricanes have directly altered life on the Gulf Coast as long as people lived there.

      People became aware and made sure they built accordingly. Descendants of Europeans didn’t listen but they to found out. There are places in Texas and Louisiana that don’t longer exist because of Hurricanes. Indianola and Isles Dernières.

      Mindless narratives people have to question the experts.
      Like the experts are attempting to get you to do something that will harm you in some way.

      These people have spent a lot of time and energy studying tropical systems. They are needed and some of us appreciate what they do.

      Levi is one of the best of them. Levi doesn’t have to do this.
      But he is does.

      Show some appreciation for people like him…
      Some of us who live here on the Gulf Coast understand when the Gulf attempts to take back over…

    Your the best, Levi. Thank you so much.

  • Shelley says:

    Sorry – my “your” was incorrect.
    You’re the best, Levi. Thank you.

    IMHO, in retrospect, Delta was a good bit less severe and intense than it seemed it might be, a day or so before it hit the Yucatan. As someone else here mentioned, the main US East Coast has had a relatively calm hurricane season, and the Gulf has been a hot bed with storms coming at the US, thru the Gulf this year. Here’s hoping and praying we’ve seen the last for this season. I also think, despite the high number of “named” storms and all the media hype about “how quick we reached this letter or that letter”, overall, the actual storms that have hit the US (or even other places Atlantic storms have hit), has been relatively “not so bad”. Nothing like last year Dorian raking the Bahamas for 5 days, or super major storms hitting multiple areas like Irma, Katrina, Wilma, Florence, Michael, etc.

    Some evening when you have nothing better to do, would you present a video on reading the dropsonde graph you refer to? What the side boxes are, what the graph lines refer to, the presentation one expects in a vertically stacked Hurricane, etc. Dishwasher sounds allowed.

    Thanks for considering!

    Nino 3.4 index below -1 C. La Nina is strengthening.

  • ren says:

    The low (Delta) with cold front from north causes heavy rainfall in North Carolina and Virginia.

    Delta had 95mph at landfall. Thank god for it not being 115mph because that would have suuuuuuuuuuuuuuucked

  • Anonymous says:

    Weather channel stated 95 miles and hour, but our local weather station reported 40-45mph with higher gust
    Don’t believe the hype. State Farm is selling insurance between every video
    Deaths 0

    We have worse storms during the winter months

    The Atlantic is back at its demonic ways…. 3 AOI again

  • Andrew says:

    Damn……
    The Gulf has been abused by hurricanes this season and barely any have hit the east coast.

    F in chat for Louisiana.
