He is a big storm and you can see where he’s going. We started getting rain yesterday and expect more bands to come through today. It’s off and on gusty in the 20-30 mph range in Orlando.
One thing to pay attention to is if this storm drifts to the west, it could come in at a steep angle. It may not make much of a change in New Orleans as they will get the brunt of it almost no matter what. But if it comes in at the steep angle, that makes it stronger as it moves into Texas. Houston will need to watch for that.
My fiend Kevin shared some good resources to track the storm including a guy riding it out in New Orleans, blogging and twittering.
