Thank you so much for your explanation of the various storms. It would always drive me crazy watching the typical local talking heads explaining where the hurricane may be going. Never or seldom telling you why it’s moving in a certain direction.
So this new potential storm in the Caribbean. Heard all you said. But the satellite imagery of it so far, it seems to be heading NORTH, towards the ocean East of Puerto Rico. So why would it head west across the Caribbean.
And am I just imagining it, but it seems like this whole hurricane season has been very unusually heavy in Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean storms vs. average years. Not many in the Atlantic proper, save a few that impacted Bermuda. Not much on the eastern seaboard itself. Would love to hear feedback about this aspect.
WTF??? NHC just did a MAJOR SHIFT EAST of Eta AGAIN!!!. Can we get an updated video?
Yep, heading straight for me now.
Hope it peters out before it gets here.
I was floored with this MAJOR SHIFT, just 2 hours after Levi did his video. That why I was hoping he’d follow up with the cause/reasoning behind this change.
It also seems like it’s a day ahead of where it’s supposed to be. Feels like it’s in the Tampa area now.
In your next video, I was hoping you could quickly address what the second low pressure system is doing, and how it could have affected its recent changes. Thank you for what you do.
Wow, I thought Levi would have an updated video on here for tonight, Wed, by this time. Hope he puts one up soon.
last 3 hours, 7pm to 10pm, it moved due N, both Longitudes were 83.4W. Northern component it is about as far north as New Port Richey (Bayonet Point).
That’s my area. It’s not too bad here yet, but some wind.
Well if you are in the Bayonet Point area, the storm center should be moving away from you more every hour. We are in Spring Hill, so we have about one more hour until it is in line with us, off the coast, then it should be moving away from us, as well. I looked on Weather Underground and for Spring Hill, they show wind speeds around 28 mph, staying in the low 20’s thru most of the night, then dropping off more tomorrow. So it looks like we’re dodging the bullet this time, or maybe a grazing flesh wound.
I wish Levi gave us an update tonight.
Yeah, not bad at all.
Levi doesn’t usually update once they hit land or dissipates. So it’s not that big of a surprise, but I was hoping to get one.
I was hoping for an explanation of the shift east, that NHC put up just 2 hours after his video last night. And a little more thought s on the final track it will take until landfall tomorrow, which appears to be up in Levy County.
Also, a little more thoughts on this potential storm in the Caribbean.
Sorry to be so critical, but this one was more reacting than forecasting. Woke up in Tampa with TS right on top of us. Good thing only a weakening system tho. Your site is awesome, I tune in every storm.
I woke up this morning and read the comments. I too checked a couple of times last night for an update; however, I for one realize that Dr. Cowan lives in an area initially impacted by ETA.
I also realize after be a long time follower that as previously stated he does not usually update when his previous forecast was complete because the storm has dissipating or landed. There really were no new updates. Please have some consideration for him. He has a life too and is not required to do this. If you have a better source you would be using that instead of complaining that he did not update.
As for the remark reacting instead of forecasting? Then you did not listed to the previous two updates. He ALWAYS explains the uncertainty of these storms and why. He did explain the variables that could change the outcome and he did explain that if the storm got stronger it could push closer to the east. Are you expecting him to predict Mother Nature exactly? I for one have learned that the most qualified, educated and knowledgeable meteorologist CANNOT 100% predict these storms. However in my opinion LEVI is pretty darn close!
I recommend gratitude and appreciation for LEVI and his posts not negativity, expectations and insults.
But in this case, the Tues night update still had it hitting the panhandle. 2 hours later the track shifted EAST. At normal update time on Wed night it was still out in the gulf, roughly W of Tampa going, who knows where, since it shifted so many times. A follow up would really have been nice. But I am always grateful for the info Levi gives us.
Who is watching 92S? Seems like the SWIO is of to a start
Sorry for going of topic
