Still Storm Season


In the New Orleans, we often associate Halloween and the start of Costume Season with the end of Hurricane Season. However, Hurricane Season lasts until November 30th. In case a reminder is necessary, Tropical Storm Kate is swirling around very close to Florida right now.


Amazing Grace


Hurricane Season is not quite over yet. Although summer and the K10 onslaught have passed, storm threats have not. Out in the Atlantic, on a path towards the Leeward Islands, Tropical Storm Grace continues to plow west.


Tropical Outlook: Erika Disturbed, Not Depressed; Fred Forms


Erika was once a hurricane, but the downgrades continued as she stormed west. By Saturday (8.29), she was just depressed. Now the National Weather Service (NWS) says Erika is nothing more than a “disturbance.” Eyes have turned to the African coast where Tropical Storm Fred has already formed.


Erika Storms West


Meteorologists are cautiously optimistic that Tropical Storm Erika will not pose a threat to New Orleans. Instead, the National Weather Service (NWS) is predicting that the fifth named storm of the Atlantic season will hit Cuba before veering north through Florida.


TS Danny Gets Depressed, Friends Follow


On Monday (8.24), the National Weather Service announced that Danny, once a Cat 3 hurricane was downgraded to a mere Tropical Depression. Unfortunately, misery loves company. Two additional Atlantic formations are following in Danny’s path. At least one of those two waves has the potential to become depressed as well.
