8/28 Katrina update: Category 5> 160mph winds!


Katrina update and weather update!
 
It is pretty rare to get a storm to Category 5 status! Katrina has made it and I wonder how strong she gets! As of 8am EDT she is still moving west-northwest. This storm will devastate areas to her east when she makes landfall. She will likely start to to turn to the northwest and eventually north northwest today. There is a chance she may start a bend to the northeast and that will spare New Orleans.
 
What will she do after this? Despite the models keeping her west of our region I am still concerned we will see affects of her. Now she is as strong as Camille at this time and if she comes in this direction she will likely still be a tropical storm when she traverses the area. Heavy rains and severe weather will be her hallmark once up to this region. Because of her slowness in a turn to the north she will not affect us until Tuesday late or Wednesday.
 
In the meantime, the front that has stalled to our west (and the helping factor in providing a path for Katrina) will be close enough to provide continued chances of showers and even thunderstorms today through Tuesday.
 
Highs will remain in the upper 70s and lower 80s and climb to the mid and upper 80s Tuesday.
 
Please stay tuned to the weather and pray for those in Katrina’s path as she will devastate the areas she affects!
 
All for now.
