Whew! What a day! All was going smoothly until the NOAA Weather Radio alarm went off at 2:29 PM alerting us of several waterspouts over Caminada Bay north of Grand Isle. The Fire Chief reported there were as many as 4 funnels that combined into 2 that clearly showed up in pictures. Damage was widespread but relatively minor with no injuries reported. The front that caused the storms has pushed into the Gulf bringing cooler and drier air for Thursday. It won't lst as the muggies return Friday PM and showers are back for Saturday & Sunday.
THE GFS model hinted that a tropical system will form down in the Caribbean late next week and head up the east coast east of Florida. Joe Bastardi made the call last week for an early preseason storm east of 80 west. Stay tuned!
