stadium effect :wub:

 

Ohhhh shoot! Stadium...I weather weenie out on that too for some reason (it's just something frickin' awesome about it) Wow...24 hours ago some of us wouldn't even have expected to see that! 

So is this effect only seen in Category 4 and above?

Currently...

ADT v9 value is at 6.5 and stayed that way for a few hours. 929mb estimate.

ADT v8 value is at 6.4 and has been increasing the last few hours. 933mb estimate.

stadium effect and mammatus clouds, my favorite. 

I believe it can happen in any category as its really only dependent upon the eye clearing out to give that stadium effect, but i'm sure a more knowledgeable met will correct me if i am wrong.

LCH radar is working and sometimes is a better way to see exact motion too. Satellite imagery sometimes can play slight tricks.

I cant name examples off the top of my head like that, but I feel like the lower categories don't get that nice clear eye as high categories do.

Eye getting more round / symmetrical in appearance. CDO looks healthier in the western semicircle, perhaps even expanding westward. Classic NHC AVN...

950mb on the sonde, but with 18kts.

This seems to support ~ 948 mb.

The surge might go 15-20 miles inland in some places. Yeah I’d be out of there immediately.

Winds above the surface, just about 1000 plus feet high into the column of the eye wall suggests category five intensity is just a mere arbitrary number, winds near 145 knots

KPLC TV in Lake Charles will be evacuating and WAFB TV in Baton Rouge will be broadcasting for them.  The met at KPLC told his viewers if they are foolish enough to stay to have a sledgehammer or crowbar so you can get out of your house.
