Good luck! Wish the best for you. Glad it is only a cat 1 storm.

I live far enough south on the Texas coast and only have some high cloud cover and light NE winds from Isaac. Not expecting any wind or rain.

Here are a few links to some lesser known weather related sites. Hope they might be helpful to you and others.

Real time wind map Click to zoom in to an area.
Lots of tropical maps Just about every tropical map displayed on a single page.
Weather Models Models the NHC and others use to predict storm tracks/paths.
Tropical Cyclone Guidance Project Each individual storm page features the latest plots of model guidance and intensity forecast aids for that storm.

Hope this helps some. Stay Safe!

Over here in Mobile AL we're on the edge - that is after being told for 4 days we were the target.

Windy and a bit rainy but nothing to much to worry about.

Keep your heads down over there!

@bill7718: Thanks! You had some links to sites I had never seen. Added to my favorites.

@mtm2: Your area dodged this bullet. I was just in Mobile last week, btw.

@hobbitss: Thanks! I went to high school right across the state line from there, in Lake Charles. I still keep an eye on the weather in that area as most of my family is there.

@belyndag: I make it over to Baton Rouge at least once a month. That drive can sure seem to be a long one at times, especially at night.

@belyndag: No problem...
I have family down in the Houston area so I like to keep track of what's happening that way as well as the storms that track up the coast for good old New England...

I actually found out about that weather site a few years ago from connections in Emergency Management... I was a Search & Recovery Diver long ago...

Plan ahead and stay safe! We may get some of the fallout in AR.....I hope so. We need rain badly!

I have a sister in Biloxi. She said it was fine weather to fly a kite in. :) She made it through Katrina, she'll be fine with a little rain.

I live about an hour north of Biloxi. The worst damage I've seen so far is soggy yards and a lot of leaves fallen from trees. People were freaking out for nothing.

@mtm2: My daughter was in school in Gulfport for a while so we were doing about the same thing. And my folks live in Lake Charles which is about the same distance down I-10 in the other direction. Once you've made the drive a few hundred times it all becomes a blur.

@hobbitss: A Search & Recovert diver? I look at your username and picture Frodo in a wetsuit. Then I start wondering where you would find flippers to fit.

@jsimsace: The rain you need has been finding us for weeks, and is now filling my yard. I will gladly send you some!

@xarous and @purplefeather: I gather the Biloxi area is doing pretty well this time around. Thank goodness! The worst of the storm is taking it's sweet time getting to us, but it's already downed trees and powerlines in our area. So far nothing major at my house and we still have power for a change.

Fingers crossed!

A tree went down across the street. The wind is gusting pretty strongly and the rain is serious. Isaac was just downgraded to a tropical storm, but someone forgot to tell Isaac! And the worst of it won't be here until about 7:00 Woot time!
