tropical weather

Something worth watching?
For the most part, it has been a quiet Hurricane Season.  In June, we experienced heavy rains from the remnants of Tropical Storm Bill, but nothing to speak of since then...until now?
Making Landfall
As predicted, the tropical system in the Gulf of Mexico strengthened quickly overnight to become Tropical Storm Bill.  As of 7:30 AM, Bill is making landfall at Matagorda Bay, near Port O'Connor.
Hurricane Watches Extended Westward to Louisiana
Even the experts at the National Hurricane Center are admitting that there is a lot of uncertainty when it comes to the forecast track of Tropical Storm Isaac.
As of 1pm today, hurricane watches now extend from near Morgan City, Louisiana to about halfway through the Panhandle of Florida.
