Tropical Storms Maria & Nate
NHC/NOAA ^ | 8 September 2011 | NHC/NOAA

Posted on 09/08/2011 11:39:01 AM PDT by NautiNurse

The 2011 Atlantic Tropical Storm season is at its peak with three active systems. Meanwhile, major inland flooding continues from the remnants of TS Lee. Tropical Storm Maria developed east of the Caribbean Sea. Tropical Storm Nate is nearly stationary in the Bay of Campeche. Hurricane Katia is churning in the Atlantic between the U.S. East Coast and Bermuda.

Tell Maria and Nate to go away!

Here in Pennsylvania we have historic flooding along the Susquehanna River and its tributaries.

Thousands of people are evacuating their homes as we speak. The first deaths from this 100-year flood are being reported.

(Thanks, Nauti, for all your heads-up hurricane threads.)

How do you solve a problem like Maria?
How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?...

Prayers for all of you experiencing the terrible floods, and to our FRiends in Texas who desperately need rain.

It had to be on the weekend just before a long awaited trip to the Far East. Got to double up on the laundry!

Although the local NWS office is saying that Maria may be downgraded to a tropical wave by the next advisory.

Whatever the case, next week I’m going to be on watch for typhoons, earthquakes and Godzilla!

TONY
(spoken)
Maria . . .
(sings)
The most beautiful sound I ever heard:
Maria, Maria, Maria, Maria . . .
All the beautiful sounds of the world in a single word . .
Maria, Maria, Maria, Maria . . .
Maria!
I’ve just met a girl named Maria,
And suddenly that name
Will never be the same
To me.
Maria!
I’ve just kissed a girl named Maria,
And suddenly I’ve found
How wonderful a sound
Can be!
Maria!
Say it loud and there’s music playing,
Say it soft and it’s almost like praying.

Maria,
I’ll never stop saying Maria!

The most beautiful sound I ever heard.
Maria.

Not here. But I think we have had just as much rain from the remnants of Lee as we did with Irene. Sub-pump died at VOC’s again and had another 3 inches in the basement. It wasn’t yet dry from Irene so it wasn’t any more damage anyhow. Lots of flooding in the area though. Just being careful of where to drive.

Janice Dean the Weather Machine was saying this morning that the bulk of the “models” show Nate running north and hitting around Louisiana.

We need Obama to come to bastrop texas face south and make a speech. He sucks so bad he could probably pull Nate right on shore in Texas. I think he could even generate enough suction so the the upper level windshear would keep Nate from having very high winds.

We are willing to sacrifice Houston for a mid level hurricane.
We need the rain that bad in Central TX.
Plus Houston could use a good bath.

From the NHC Discussion:
After 36-48 hours...the model spread becomes increasingly large...as
subtle differences in the strength and orientation of a mid/upper-level low
and trough extending from the Ohio Valley southwestward have significant
implications on the future track of the cyclone. The latest GFS and GFDL
models...which show a slightly deeper trough...move Nate northward
toward the northern Gulf Coast. The ECMWF and NOGAPS models depict
a weaker trough that does not capture Nate and allows it turn turn
westward toward Mexico to the south of a building ridge...although it
should be noted that there is considerable spread among the ECMWF
ensemble members.

Hmm... Maybe it is the remnants of Katia that is deluging us. I don’t really care what or who, I just really want it to stop.

I think it is remnants of Lee causing your latest flood problems. We’ll know in a few days whether Nate will follow Lee’s path. Same for Maria—whether it stays out to sea like Katia, or moves in along the Eastern Seaboard like Irene.

Well as long as people are posting songs and poems and such...

The Mariner’s Hurricane Poem

June - too soon
July - winds fly
August - it must
September - remember
October - it’s over

So, one more month?

Although I remember Opal hitting us down here in Alabama in October 1996!

While I still think it's asinine to wish for a hurricane, we have far too much of the state on fire with no other options.

So....we need a hu..hu..hurricane.

That was hard.
