Exclamation SEVERE WEATHER ALERT --- ISAAC HEADS UP

I know this isn't the place for this but I feel the need to let my B&G brothers and sisters that may not know what is going on right now. If you have been watching the news lately and are waiting for them to tell you to do something, DON'T.

The news will ONLY go by what the NHC says. If you watch the weather channel and pay close attention and read between the lines, they have been hinting at a model shift all day.

The 0z GFS model run just finished up. It does not look good for us is SELA. Make your plans now!! As soon as this news is broad casted, it's going to be chaos.

A GREAT site I go to is gulfcoastwx.com. A lot of pro mets and meteorology students on this site. Constant model runs you will not hear about on the local news.

I am sorry if I am alarming anyone. I went through Katrina and we were somewhat caught off guard. This is the same set up in regards to being caught off guard.

Hope this stays away but for now most models are pointing to us in SELA and MS. Please stay safe.

The national news just wants to put it all over the place so a bigger viewing area will stay tuned in. Also more people will run out and buy gas and milk.

Re: Issac heads up

Local news here in New Orleans are saying the NWS will not know the direction this thing is heading until late tomorrow.

Some of these noodle models shifted toward the west but the National Weather Service did not change their models. Means it could be just predictions at the moment data was extracted from the noodle models.

Local meteorologist are not predicting it will come here, rather fall between Alabama/Florida line. I trust the local meteorologists more than the national services.

In the sense they said the same stuff they are saying now. It was never suppose to come here according to the NHC. Fla all the way. How did that work out?

The last 4 GFS runs all have it coming here. Nogaps, Hwrf coming here. The only major model to not have it coming here YET is the Euro. BUT that is the main model they are banking on. They moved the cone this morning because the Euro is trending west.

The funny thing about that is 3 days ago when the Euro was saying SW LA and ALL the other models were pointing to Fla. it was cast off as the outlier and had no implications in the NHC track. Now that it is the lone outlier saying east, the NHC is putting all the weight with it?

Take this for what you want. I was just trying to sound the word of caution because local mets are NOT allowed to do there own thing. They have to report what the NHC says.
