DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
——————————
At 1000 AM CDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Nate was
located near latitude 18.7 North, longitude 85.0 West. Nate is
moving toward the north-northwest near 21 mph (33 km/h) and this
motion is expected to continue through Saturday, with a turn toward
the north and northeast expected Saturday night and Sunday. On the
forecast track, the center of Nate will move across the
northwestern Caribbean Sea today, and move near or over the
northeastern coast of the Yucatan peninsula this evening. Nate will
then move into the southern Gulf of Mexico tonight, approach the
northern Gulf coast Saturday, and then move near or over the
northern Gulf coast Saturday night or Sunday.

Reports from Air Force Reserve and NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft
indicate that maximum sustained winds are now near 50 mph (85 km/h)
with higher gusts. Additional strengthening is forecast during the
next couple of days, and Nate is expected to become a hurricane by
the time it reaches the northern Gulf of Mexico.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km)
mainly to the east of the center.

The minimum central pressure estimated from the Hurricane Hunter
data is 996 mb (29.42 inches).

    Answering the Question ‘Is God Mad at Me?’

    Dear Friend,

    Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria have caused destruction and human heartache on a massive scale. Crisis-trained chaplains from our Billy Graham Rapid Response Team have poured into South Texas and Florida, and they will deploy to Puerto Rico the moment conditions make it practical.

    A team has also deployed to Las Vegas in the aftermath of the horrific shooting massacre there.

    People struggling through a storm or enduring tragedy sometimes ask, “Is God mad at me? Maybe I did something wrong, and God is judging me.” I don’t believe that. If there is sin in our lives, we urgently need to repent of it, but storms are going to come in life.

    Jesus Christ went through the storms of life. Storms often cause us to refocus our priorities, and that is important because our relationship with God is the highest priority.

    Lateatt tonite is Nate’s set to hit more towards Biloxi/Mobile and we’re holding them to that. It’s now a hurricane officially and that throws previous guestimates off by hours. Air Force Reservists will continue to fly thru the storm almost continually from now until it makes landfall so that the weatherguessers at the NHS can sit in their comfy bunker and continue to prognosticate.

      Subconscious post…if the storm were actually ‘late att’ there’d be no worry, the storm wouldn’t do what it’s supposed to.

      BTW, those Reservists get one days military pay and allowances for one day flying into hurricanes. Right now the Reservists who are flying constantly, hourly, into these hurricanes have left their civilian jobs and fly into these beasts, make these flights and get the living **** kicked out of them as they fly into and out of these storms in those C-130s. If they do that for two weeks they lose two weeks of their civilian pay for two weeks of military pay. They also pay out of that pay for their life insurance.

    Up and out moving things and securing things that might blow around. Even though we’re out of the main danger zone now it’s still calm and dead quiet outside. Not a bird sound or a bird in sight, no sounds of neighbors doing farm stuff…dead quiet.
    Big shrimp and other fishing boats are tieing up in their docking areas, many of the owners will ride out the storm on their boats to make sure that if a line pops they can secure the boat or if someone else’s line pops that the other boat doesn’t slam into theirs. The smaller shrimpers and oyster boats, along with inland charter fishing boats, are heavily heading into ‘safe’ canals where they can shelter, pictures show them packed neatly like sardines and covering the water like a mat.
    Eastern track takes us out of the worst, may not even get tropical storm winds except as gusts, worst danger seems to be power outages from down line or the stray tornado.
    My GDIL and GGS are dead in the bullseye though, Gulfport. They are about a mile inland from the beach but are on a ridge thst didn’t flood during Katrina, so wind is the issue. Their house withstood Katrina so this one shouldn’t be an issue though poeer should be a problem. I want to go there and ‘helicopter mom’ but they have a dad and thst’s his job and I know how I’d hate that were someone to do that to me. I’ll just sit up here and chew my nails for them and see if they ask for the help I’ve proformaly offered.

    Thousands of classic/custom car fanatics have invaded the Gulfport/Biloxi coast area for Cruing the Coast. Most are our age, driving the toys they wanted when they were younger. Cities and businesses thought that when they were warned of the hurricane. Nope.
    Friday the casino my GDIL works at were telling employees not to come in as they expected folks to be leaving and business tomdrop. Nope. They had packed crowds, more than twice the people they’d forecasted were there to be no storm, and news crews cruising the beach were videoing cruisers parked in every available spot and parking lot all along the miles and miles of beach, drinking and partying.
    State’s sending extra state police to the area today as they expect the senior delinquents to mass unass the area today. As there are really only I-10 and US 90 as a way out and there are people from 40 states there it’s gonna be a mess, especially as those from the east and northeast try to stay ahead of the storm that’ll be following them.
    On another front, as we’re the ones being effected and the local news stations are fighting to see which one can scare the **** out you the most worstest, we’re getting the high resolution GEOS-16 picture loops constantly. To me it’s mesmerizing to watch the storm build in a condensed loop, you can see the cloud tops blossoming and bands forming as if it were a cartoon.
