Late May kicked off the season with my name sake.

Subtropical Storm Andrea blew in from the Atlantic and maneuvered toward the Yucatán.
Her legacy will be a good deal of rain moving up from the south to affect Texas and Oklahoma.

The storm season is getting underway and the Gulf is certainly warm enough to support a hurricane.
While this storm will likely remain a TS, we're on our way.

A Tropical Depression or Tropical Storm Will Likely Form in the Gulf of Mexico; Here's What We Know

https://weather.com/...southeast-coast

At a Glance
A broad area of low pressure has emerged over the northeastern Gulf of Mexico.
This is an area where July tropical storms have formed in the past.
A tropical depression or tropical storm is likely to form within the next couple of days.
The future track and intensity of this potential tropical system remain a bit uncertain.
Heavy rain leading to flash flooding is a threat along the northern Gulf Coast, dependent on the exact track.

TS Barry/Hurricane Barry - They can't pump their way out of this one.

 

Louisiana is about to get flooded again.  All flood provisions are being tested and levies may fail. 

They expect up to 20" of rain.

_____________________________________

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Tropical Storm Barry formed off the coast of Louisiana on Thursday and threatened to blow ashore as a hurricane with relatively weak winds but torrential rains that could test the flood-control improvements made in New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina 14 years ago.

Forecasters said the first hurricane of the Atlantic season could hit the state’s swampy southern tip Friday night or early Saturday, with potentially ruinous downpours that could go on for hours as the storm passes through the metropolitan area of nearly 1.3 million people and pushes inland.

Plaquemines Parish, at Louisiana’s low-lying southeastern tip, ordered the mandatory evacuation of as many as 10,000 people, and communities began handing out sandbags. Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards declared an emergency and said National Guard troops and high-water vehicles will be positioned all over the state.

 

“The entire coast of Louisiana is at play in this storm,” he warned.

On Wednesday, with the gathering storm still out over the Gulf of Mexico, it dumped as much as 8 inches (20 centimeters) on metro New Orleans in just three hours. The deluge triggered flash flooding in the city’s streets and raised fears about the even heavier rains on the way.

 

National Weather Service meteorologist Benjamin Schott said the big concern is water, not wind: “Rainfall and flooding is going to be the No. 1 threat with this storm.”

New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell said that the pumping system that drains the city’s streets is working as designed but that the slow-moving storm could dump water faster than the pumps can move it.

 

“We cannot pump our way out of the water levels ... that are expected to hit the city of New Orleans,” she warned.

Barry threatens the new levy in terms of height.  They feel secure in the strength of the levy system, but recent Midwest flooding has complicated matter a great deal.

The storm hasn't really dealt its heavy blow and the levy is almost at its max.

17' + and it will overflow into the city.  

 

Stream Name: Mississippi River
Gage Zero: 0 Ft. GAGE

Flood Stage: 17 Ft.
Record High Stage: 21.27 Ft.

I'll be out of town this weekend, so I hope someone will monitor this. Otherwise, I'll report when I get back.

Barry will go Cat 1 as the low lying peninsula of Louisiana prepares for major flooding.
The flooding from the Mississippi is still exiting the continent as Barry enters NOLA.
Officials has stated that they can not pump their way out of this despite the fact that it is only a Cat 1 hurricane. All of the state will see excessively heavy rain and flooding.

Barry will move northward and the remnants will reach Illinois and Indiana.

In the old days Barry would have been considered a "Himicane." A term used for atypical, tropical/subtropical Gulf storms. Hurricanes were only given female names. Oh, the good ol days...

ITCZ looks stable and low, but it will most likely change over next 30 days. Hurricanes are nature's heat release valves for the tropics. There is always a hurricane in the Atlantic on labor day.

Looks like an old frontal boundary will settle off the East Coast and meander into the Gulf next week. Old frontal boundaries can make good Hurricanes. Something to watch.

August 10th to 20th should see 1-2 storms develop across the Atlantic MDR..I think one will threaten the US during the third week of the month.

Interesting flare up in the Bahamas. Loop looks 'almost' closed off. Cirrus outflow doesn't show a lot of hostile shear. Something to watch today....

Our Bahma wave was a rocketship yesterday. I'm thinking 25kts/hr western movement. Should slow today as it moves out of the screaming easterlies and feels approaching convergence.

SW wind now on the big island. Satellite loop shows week closed off circulation. It is by definition now a tropical depression. Something to watch.

TD3 has decreased forward motion and looks to be moving NNW at about 10mph. Forecast to remain offshore of Florida then off Carolina outer banks 36hrs. It will be fascinating to watch the interaction with potent frontal boundary during forecast period.

A weakness will remain off the SE coast for next 7-10 days. Secondary development is possible.

TD3 has elongated. That is the first stage of redevelopment. Will continue to monitor.

I don’t think anything will come of this one. But the wake of the CCKW passage should deliver the first legitimate burst of Atlantic tropical activity of the season as it crosses Africa/E-ATL/W-IO and those waves subsequently cross the Atlantic in the newly moistened profile more readily favorable for warm-rain dynamics.

Good to hear from you Phil. We will see. I am thinking secondary development. A tip of the hat to my fellow sailors who have seen the purple seas and blowing foam...
