    2 Hurricanes To Make Back To Back Landfalls Along Gulf Coast

    Y'all might want to keep an eye on these 2 hurricanes. Both are projected to make landfall along the Louisiana and Texas coastline. The first is projected to turn more towards Texas as it makes landfall. The 2nd is projected to be even stronger and to turn NW after making landfall. Looks like the area between Houston and New Orleans will get the worst of it, but the tracks of these storms may change as they near shore.

    These forecast projections should automatically update from time to time......

    Remember these two facts about gulf hurricanes:
    1) The winds are stronger to the east of the hurricane track (central winds + the hurricane speed) and correspondingly winds are less to the west of the hurricane track (central windspeed - the hurricane advance speed).
    2) The details of Power and Where it's most likely to come ashore will be much more accurate a day or so before they reach shore. Everything right now is a 'projection' (or simulation based on various models)...

    Right you are, Gary! We'll just have to keep an eye on both storms and see how things go. Looks as if the first storm will come right through Houston centered on I-10 West and those of us who are North of I-10 will be on the 'dirty side' of center. The 2nd will be a stronger Category 2 hurricane and the center is projected to pass by just East of us.

    Looks like quite a ride for those of us who will catch both storms. Rain from both and stronger winds from the 2nd storm, I would imagine.

    Best regards,

    Harry

    The forecast still has lots of changes every time the NHC puts out an advisory. Latest is that while Marco will head toward Houston, it's after landfall and will essentially dissipate prior to getting to Houston. Laura is a bigger concern and is forecast for western Lousiana landfall but of course that could change. In fact the forecast could change a number of times for either one.

    Looks like Marco will peter out before doing much here in the Houston area. Laura is the stronger storm and will bear watching. At present, this storm is projected to make landfall a bit East of us but you never know until about a day before these storms make landfall just where they will really go.

    Gary and Carl, if this storm makes the projected turn eastward after landfall, Northern Alabama and Virginia may get a little rain from it as well.

    Y'all stay safe now,

    Harry

    Carl, what's a great job? Is the weather lady pretty or sexy? Give me a break.

    Harry: Yes, we're expecting rain over several days this coming weekend, in fact, we'll probably get some from Marco before this week is out as well...

    Well, looks as if Laura will be a Category 3 hurricane and make landfall in the wee hours of Thursday morning. Cone of uncertainty has shifted Westward towards Houston. I believe I'll put on a pot of beans and dirty rice Wednesday afternoon. Throw in some lean chopped brisket and sweet corn for good measure. That's comfort food.

    Whatever the storm does, we will ride it out here at home. We have too many animals to leave them here for days and drive up to College Station to visit youngest son and his family as my other sons and their families may elect to do (they live near the coast between Galveston and NASA).

    Besides..... In case any of the local thugs decide to break in, we need to be here so we can defend our home against them. Haven't found a suitable shotgun for home defense yet. So wife will have her .38 Special with 158 grain semi-wad cutters and I will limber up her grandpa's 03 Springfield this afternoon. Hasn't been fired since the 1920s when he would take it to the range. Ammo is hard to find just now. I have a few 5-round stripper clips of 30.06 military issue ball ammo (FMJ) from the 1920s that came with it and a box of armour piercing tracer rounds dating from WWII that I scrounged up a while back. Action is smooth as butter and bore looks good. Just hope it doesn't blow up if I have to fire it.

    Weather Underground (meteorologists, not Obama's terrorist buddies Ayers and Dohrn...... https://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-bl...-the-beginning ) predicts Laura will make landfall centered near the mouth of the Sabine River (border between Texas and Louisiana).

    Local TV weather guy seems to think this storm may take a track right through Houston much as Hurricane Ike did, though. If it does...... Hope we won't lose electric for too many days. That always sucks. I'm on crutches at present. Wife and I went out and worked on the fence yesterday and then secured anything outside that might blow around.

    Best regards,

    Harry

    Wishes the best of luck to all the inhabitants of the gulf coast in the regions where the hurricanes come ashore... Stay safe and don't take unnecessary chances with Nature's power..
