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.

Texans to hire David Culley. Composite image by Jack Brame

Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Texans will hire former Ravens assistant head coach David Culley as their new head coach. John McClain reported earlier on Wednesday that the coaching hire was narrowed down to Culley and Bills DC Leslie Frazier.

Now the question becomes, what does Deshaun Watson think of the hire? Culley has no experience as a head coach but did work closely with Andy Reid from 1999-2012 in Philly and 2013-2016 in KC. Many believed that Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy would be the next Texans coach because of his years learning from Reid. But the Texans opted for the lesser-known Culley instead.
