WeatherMap Update

Let's pay a little more attention to the Gulf

National Hurricane Center

Well, I'm back a little sooner than I anticipated with an update on the tropical situation. That'll show me to write a post before the 1 AM forecast updates come out. I'm going to keep this brief for now but will be have a more detailed post tomorrow morning, you know, with pretty pictures and everything.

By now you may have heard we now need to keep a closer eye on this tropical system than we thought we did over the weekend. The National Hurricane Center now gives this area of low pressure, currently over Georgia an 80% chance to develop into at least a tropical depression. If it develops into a tropical storm (winds between 39 and 73 MPH) it would be named Barry.

As late as last night this system looked to be an issue for those somewhere between New Orleans and Florida. Over night new computer models came in showing a significant west shift in the track placing this potential storm anywhere between Matagorda Bay and the Texas/Louisiana Border. Now before anyone panics keep in mind this solution has only been shown for a couple of model runs. It could easily shift back east and away from us. If this system were to impact our area it would still be 6-7 days away and the forecast can and probably will shift around a number of times in the coming days. At this point just make yourself aware, but keep your hand away from the panic button.

Be sure to check in tomorrow morning for an update.

Wind is the story in week 3 with gusty conditions at many games

WeatherMap: Week 3 Football Weather Impacts

What a weather week we have had. Despite all that I'm not going to leave you hanging on the weather report for football this week.

This week almost every outdoor game will see at least moderate weather impacts mostly from gusty winds, though a couple of spots will be dealing with rain as well. Above is your map for week 3, however due to the wind impacts at each game I have also added images below showing the wind direction in relation to the field at each game to be affected by wind this week.


Enjoy the games, and as always you can find me on Twitter @stephenuzick.
