8/25 – Rob Knight’s Friday Afternoon “Harvey Update” Forecast
HURRICANE HARVEY UPDATE:
Currently a CAT 2 storm, but has slowed considerably in forward momentum; the (National Hurricane Center) NHC indicates continued strengthening to CAT 3 this afternoon/evening before landfall near Corpus Christi around sunrise tomorrow morning.
This weekend along the N’tern Gulf, feeder bands from Harvey will periodically move across the area providing for showers/t-storms and windy conditions (20 mph). a stationary front overhead will also be a focal point for afternoon activity. The long term forecast beyond Sunday is very fluid as HURRICANE HARVEY looks to linger in E’tern Texas for about 48 hours after landfall…slowly losing intensity. Going into early next week…the remnants of Harvey could travel east along the boundary. If this scenario comes to fruition, the N’tern Gulf could find HEAVY rain with 4-8” of accumulation possible.
