We have a potential intense TC brewing that is locked into a US coastal landfall and is about to get a lot of attention, media or otherwise. The main meteorological thread is going to get busy, so as to better assist the mods, we'll make a banter thread here. Ramble on about whatever local concerns, travel, direct, indirect, semi- or even non-related discussion while this event unfolds.

Perfect! I have been holding back a bit. ;)

This thread will probably be more informative than the NE forum Henri thread for whatever that is worth

That was a decent thread tbh. This thread may falter a bit because the seshing is going on elsewhere on the board and in other places.

Ida to hit New Orleans.

Watching "Live and Let Die" when I was 13 was memorable for me and my first taste of Tarot. New Orleans was also memorable to me. The three forever intertwined in my mind. Even when Katrina was approaching and pounding NO the concept of 007 and Tarot were in my mind.

Curious that my fate so many years later has taken me to learn about Dr John Dee, who Prospero is based on, the "Original OO7".

The New Orleans "Night Tripper" died on Day 157 in 2019 the same day as a good friend of mine who got lung cancer from asbestos on ground zero in NYC helping his city he loved so much after 9/11/01. Maybe he was in “Right Place Wrong Time”. Dr. John is known for loving his city as well.

RIP to both.

Banter-ish, but the governor should cancel school in Louisiana, and have every bus driver in the state congregate, maybe somewhere on I-49 North of Lafayette, so whether the track shifts back to Lake Charles or New Orleans, they can be doing mass evacs to Houston.

Yes, they'll be big overtime for the drivers.  But I remember late month for Katrina meant people on fixed incomes at the end of the month didn't have gas or hotel money to evacuate.

JB  is really  going to be  bummed  if this  one  doesnt rapidly  intesnify. He predicted Henri would and  it  didnt. I think its  moving way too fast to be  more than a cat1 and the  further east  it  goes the weaker  it will be.

I won't have time to go full Cat 5, or even Cat 4 (maybe borderline Cat 3/4, tops) passing over high SSTs/OHC and light shear, Cat 1 seems low.  Even w/ less than 2 full days over the Gulf.

How can you make such a definitive statement? We have seen that RI can bring a storm to cat 5 within 2 days. It’s still uncommon but we are living with AGW and it happens occasionally now.

I was replying to someone saying Cat 1.  It has time to Harvey, I don;t think it gets Cat 5.  I could be wrong.

Neither do I, but this isn’t the storm to take that bet on. I’m chillin just waiting to see what it looks like tomorrow morning before being bolder.

Hopefully not another boring Shrimpland landfall that doesn’t destroy anything and chasers can’t get major hurricane winds. It’s only been a year since Laura so I really doubt it’s gonna hit that same area at least.
