Thanks Mother Nature: Tornado Watch During TS Cindy


As most of southeastern Louisiana is making preparations for Tropical Storm Cindy, Mother Nature upped the ante for New Orleanians. The National Weather Service's Tornado division called for a tornado warning in Orleans Parish through midday Wednesday. 


Tropical Update: TS Cindy Comes to Louisiana


Less than three weeks into hurricane season, and the first named storm of the year is on its way to Louisiana. Tropical Storm Cindy has been brewing in the Gulf of Mexico, and is scheduled to hit the southeastern U.S. and gulf coasts, as early as Tuesday evening. 

 


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.


Pipe Are Calling TS Danny


The summer's gone, and all the flowers are dying. Danny’s tenure as a full fledged hurricane was brief. The National Weather Service (NWS) downgraded the weather formation to Tropical Storm today.


Danny Coy


It seems as though New Orleans gets whacked by a storm (including The Storm) on the same dates at the end of August. However, Cassandras worried about Hurricane Danny blaming NOLA amidst the K10 commemorations can revel in some relief. The National Weather Service (NWS) says that Danny is weakening.


Tropical Depression Four Forms


By Patrick J. Pearson

Organization has come to Carribean waether and Tropical Depression 4 has formed. According to the National Weather Service (NWS) the depression has winds maxing out around 35 mph, but those winds are expected to speed up  as the system slows down. NWS' Forecaster Brennan predicts that the depression will cheer up into a full fledged Tropical Storm.
