    Congrats Levi on your success so far in meteorology. Miss those early days on the WU. Thanks for the update on that wet system heading towards my area.

    Hi Levi. The Euro has always seems to have 92L get stronger over land, and the 12Z shows it with decent organization over the NC coast and then over the Atlantic become a decent storm, whereas the GFS has the system do a typical slow fade over land. Any thoughts on the difference?

    • Levi says:

      The ECMWF currently has a bias where it strengthens tropical cyclones over land too often. A gradual decay over land is more likely here.

      • Jim Day says:

        Any reason for that Levi? That goes against everything I have been told about surface friction and flow.

          its because theres no water on land making the cyclone unable to strengthen. Cyclones need warm water to strengthen as it makes them areas of lower pressure.

    Career. Thank you

    I love how you explain everything in such detail. I learn more about our tropical weather here in Kemah, TX. watching your videos than our local weather offices. It seems like we may get lucky with this one. I look forward to watching future videos!! Thanks for taking the time to make the videos. YOU truly keep us INFORMED!!

  • Cole says:

    Could you comment on how the formation of the storm off the west coast of Mexico would impact the storm in the Gulf? Seems they are developing at the same time. Not sure what that could mean. Thanks!

  • Joey B. says:

    It looks like Slidell, Louisiana eastward to Biloxi, Mississippi could get the most rain?

  • Scott Wiley says:

    Thank you. Been watching you for years, you are go to person. Neptune Beach Fl.

  • Philip Dunn says:

    I certainly appreciate what you do. I Pastor a small Church in La Porte, Tx and use your videos to keep my folks informed with trustworthy information and not so much hype.
    Thanks a ton.

    I can firsthand tell you I know what he means by its stalling and that causes a lot of rain. I live in Wilmington North Carolina which always gets hurricanes but unfortunately, we had Florence that decided to stop right over us For a couple of days. Our total rain amount was 35 1/2 inches of rain. It was so bad and people lost everything. And of course, the storm is going right through us in Wilmington North Carolina which will be nothing. My rule of thumb is if a hurricane is a 1, 2, 3 I stay. 4 I leave if I have my kids that week but I will definitely think of leave. 5? I’ll ask on here if I can sleep over for a few days lol. Btw I live a few miles from the coast in Wilmington North Carolina. Try to remember this message for maybe the next hurricane or a couple after because Wilmington North Carolina will be hit, unfortunately.

    Hi Levi
    GFS has a tropical formation happening in the gulf and going over NWFL on the 1st of July. How likely do you think that storm will happen and how likely do you think that track is?


  • Tim Walsh says:

    Wow the last couple of years it just seems like everything hits between Tex and Fla. Btw we had our 5th tornado this year so far in Quebec Can. One of them happened on Monday 25 miles from my home in the Montreal area. Insanity
