  1. Yeahhhhh may have to eat those words
  2. I thought so earlier today, but recon and satellite show a rather very disorganized system and most intensity guidance has stayed in TS territory this evening. Could make it to a hurricane maybe, but I think it's rather unlikely at this time. Small size could help it spin up and intensify quickly, but it only has about 24-36 more hours over water at most so we'll see.

SUMMARY OF 400 PM CDT...2100 UTC...INFORMATION ---------------------------------------------- LOCATION...22.8N 95.5W ABOUT 160 MI...260 KM ESE OF LA PESCA MEXICO ABOUT 240 MI...385 KM SSE OF MOUTH OF THE RIO GRANDE MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS...40 MPH...65 KM/H PRESENT MOVEMENT...NNW OR 340 DEGREES AT 14 MPH...22 KM/H MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE...1008 MB...29.77 INCHES
  4. Euro coming in with a landfall in mid TX coast Tuesday morning. Models seem to be zeroing in on a US landfall but nothing for sure yet.
  5. While 12z GFS and ensembles are stronger with 94L, something that may hold it back besides land interaction would be dry air as multiple GFS runs have been hinting at
  6. Ensembles hinting at that and def gotta watch considering ridging is favorable for a US impact.
  7. 18z GFS now has a hurricane impacting the Texan coast given (future) 94L doesn't spend most of its time on land. This is why the 12z Euro is weaker because of its proximity to land. Definitely need to monitor.
  8. 12z Euro develops the disturbance in the Caribbean and moves it along the TX coast as a weak system, pretty much the only model showing development of that though besides a few GEFS ensembles. Another thing to watch is a wave that'll be coming through the Bahamas late next week, GFS and Euro don't show development atm, but several GEFS members have been consistent on developing it for several runs, so something to watch
  9. ...CENTER OF MINDY MAKES LANDFALL AT ST. VINCENT ISLAND FLORIDA... National Weather Service Doppler radar data and surface observations indicate that the center of Mindy has made landfall over St. Vincent Island, Florida. The Tyndall Air Force Base tower south of Apalachicola, Florida, recently reported sustained winds of 44 mph (70 km/h) and a wind gust of 55 mph (89 km/h) at an elevation of 115 ft (35 m). SUMMARY OF 815 PM CDT...0115 UTC...INFORMATION --------------------------------------------------- LOCATION...29.7N 85.2W ABOUT 10 MI...15 KM WSW OF APALACHICOLA FLORIDA MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS...45 MPH...75 KM/H PRESENT MOVEMENT...NE OR 50 DEGREES AT 21 MPH...33 KM/H MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE...1004 MB...29.65 INCHES Definitely one of the better 40 knot tropical storms I have seen on radar
  10. Almost a partial eyewall like feature created by frictional convergence as it's coming ashore, wouldn't be surprised if it was a 45 knot TS currently.
  11. 500 PM CDT Wed Sep 08 2021 ...NOAA BUOY DATA INDICATES THAT MINDY IS A LITTLE STRONGER... Recent data from NOAA buoy 42036 indicates that the maximum sustained winds in Mindy are now near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher gusts. SUMMARY OF 500 PM CDT...2200 UTC...INFORMATION --------------------------------------------------- LOCATION...29.2N 86.1W ABOUT 75 MI...120 KM WSW OF APALACHICOLA FLORIDA MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS...45 MPH...75 KM/H PRESENT MOVEMENT...NE OR 50 DEGREES AT 21 MPH...33 KM/H MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE...1004 MB...29.65 INCHES
  12. Now have Mindy ...NEW TROPICAL STORM FORMS IN THE NORTHEAST GULF OF MEXICO... ...TROPICAL STORM WARNINGS ISSUED FOR THE FLORIDA PANHANDLE... SUMMARY OF 400 PM CDT...2100 UTC...INFORMATION ---------------------------------------------- LOCATION...29.0N 86.3W ABOUT 90 MI...150 KM WSW OF APALACHICOLA FLORIDA MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS...40 MPH...65 KM/H PRESENT MOVEMENT...NE OR 50 DEGREES AT 21 MPH...33 KM/H MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE...1008 MB...29.77 INCHES WATCHES AND WARNINGS -------------------- CHANGES WITH THIS ADVISORY: A Tropical Storm Warning has been issued for the coast of the Florida Panhandle from Mexico Beach to Steinhatchee River.
  13. 1. Updated: Satellite and radar data indicate that shower and thunderstorm activity continues to gradually become better organized in association with an area of low pressure located about 115 miles southwest of Apalachicola, Florida. In addition, satellite-derived wind data indicate that the circulation has become somewhat better defined today. If these development trends continue, advisories will likely be initiated on this system as a tropical depression or tropical storm later this afternoon, and tropical storm warnings could be required for portions of the coast of the Florida Panhandle. After reaching the Florida Panhandle tonight, this system is expected to move across the southeastern United States and emerge over the western Atlantic by late Thursday, where environmental conditions appear unfavorable for additional development. Regardless of development, areas of heavy rainfall are likely across portions of the Florida panhandle and southern Georgia through Thursday, with localized flooding possible. * Formation chance through 48 hours...high...80 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent. Looks pretty close to a tropical system to me imo
  14. 00z GFS, HWRF, and HMON spin this up really quick into a weak tropical storm tomorrow evening Reminds me somewhat of what happened with TS Emily (2017) which spun up really quick into a 40 knot tropical storm near the coast, that's the only similarity I am aware of though.
  15. Can definitely see 91L developing into a tropical depression or weak storm as it nears the coast given GEFS ensembles Imo the one to really watch is the CAG system which GEFS, GFS, and CMC have been relatively consistent on developing.
