Right now the National Hurricane Center and Dave Baker are watching an area of disturbed weather in the Gulf of Mexico. Could this become Tropical Storm Lee?

So here on this 6 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina's landfall in Louisiana what is mother nature cooking up in the tropics for us now? Introducing Tropical Depression 12, the latest tropical entity in the Atlantic basin. The current tropical models suggest that TD 12 will in fact get stronger and become a named storm. When that happens it will be called Katia. So where might this storm be headed?

Face Forms In Cloud – You’ve Got To See This [Video]

I have spent a lot of time looking up at clouds. As a kid I used to create stories based on the animals and shapes I saw in the clouds. When you're a kid it's called pretending, when  you do that as an adult people tend to think you are an odd duck

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.

Lot’s Of TV News People Saying “Haboob”[Video]

Don't you love it when all the folks on radio and TV get to say a new word? Especially when it's the kind of word that makes the immature among us snicker under our breath? Or when it is the kind of word that if your Grandmother had to say it out loud she would probably get really embarrassed?

Craig’s List Advertisement Responsible For Rain?

I would imagine there isn't anything you couldn't find on Craig's List. It's like an Internet garage sale, want-ads, help wanted, personals list of any body who is needing something or anybody that is wanting something.

The Best Ways To Water Your Plants

We need some rain. That is a statement that I think we can all agree on. Looking at Natalie Noah's 8 day weather forecast we might get a shower but I am not holding out much hope. My yard has gotten all nice and crunchy and I am walking that fine line between saving it or spending my savings on a watering bill. In Lafayette Parish we have watering restrictions designed to make sure there is plenty of water pressure in the system in the event of an emergency.
