A tropical system in the Gulf of Mexico means that you need to be weather aware all weekend long. Staying informed is the key to protecting your family and your property. Here are some great links to get the very latest information on how Tropical Storm Lee will affect you. From our television partner KATC, here is the latest on the tropics as it pertains to Acadiana.
It's August and that means two things, back to school and the tropics are heating up with tropical storms and hurricanes. The season in 2011 has been quiet enough, but I think we are about to see Rob Perrillo's tail start wagging as we get into the meat of the hurricane season. Just yesterday the Hurricane Center in Miami upgraded an area of disturbed weather located just east of Martinique to tropical storm status. The cyclone will be called Emily, now where is Emily going to go?
Predicting the weather, most of us leave that to the best in the business, our friends Dave Baker, Rob Perillo and Natalie Noah at KATC TV 3. They tell us what we need to know everyday as far as the weather goes. What happens when you're traveling and there is no Good Morning Acadiana to wake up to? Or what if you're in a strange land like Indiana where you can't understand a word they're saying, what do you do to know whether to pack a poncho or slather on sunscreen? You can predict your own weather forecast here is where we tell you how.
It looks like the Morganza Spillway will be opened by Saturday. The Army Corps of Engineers mandated that the spillway be opened when the water volume increases to 1.5 million cubic feet per second (cfs) along the Mississippi River at the Red River Landing. Currently it's running at a 1.45 million cfs clip and by late Friday the Corps expects it to reach the 1.5 million cfs mark.
