The National Hurricane Center is expecting a tropical depression to form either tonight south of Florida or tomorrow in the eastern Gulf of Mexico. This system will be a threat to Louisiana to Alabama by early next week. If this system doesn't make landfall, it could move further west towards our region by the middle of next week.

There is a low chance for tropical development on another system that is currently in the north central Gulf. It is forecast to move southwest towards Mexico and not be a threat to our region.

A tropical wave moving west across the Atlantic has a high chance for development. It could be in the Caribbean by the end of next week. We will need to monitor this system as it is too early to say if it will be a threat to the Gulf of Mexico.

Another tropical wave will be moving off the coast of Africa and has a medium chance for development. It is too early to say if it will be a threat to the Gulf of Mexico.

Finally, Tropical Storms Paulette and Rene will remain out in the Atlantic. Neither of these systems will be a problem for our area.

▪ Laura is expected to make landfall between southeast Texas and south central Louisiana as a category two hurricane late Wednesday or early Thursday.
▪ The average error for hurricane forecasts is 70 to100 miles off for two to three days in advance of landfall, so do not focus on the individual forecast points, but use the error cone instead!

Marco is weakening quickly and is not expected to cause any weather problems in our region today or tomorrow.

Laura is expected to make landfall between southeast Texas and south central Louisiana as a category two hurricane late Wednesday or early Thursday.

Everyone should be preparing for a category three hurricane due to the typical hurricane forecast errors, especially when it comes to wind speeds.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here are the expected weather impacts from Laura:

Winds: Hurricane force winds will be possible across the region starting late Wednesday and continuing Thursday.

Storm Surge: At the coast, water could be over 10 feet above ground level. Depending on where Laura makes landfall, storm surge can back up rivers and bayous and flood over 30 miles inland.

Rainfall: Depending on where the rain bands form, 5 to 10 inches with locally 15 inches will be possible starting Wednesday into Thursday.

Tornadoes: Tornadoes will be possible in the eyewall as the hurricane approaches the coast, as well as outer rain bands.

08/23/2020

Marco is now a category one hurricane.

Marco may not make landfall in southeast Louisiana on Monday – it may move west across southern Louisiana or the adjacent coastal waters, weakening as a tropical storm.
Because of this forecast change, a tropical storm warning is now in place as far west as Cameron, LA.

Laura has a large spread for landfall forecasts – anywhere from southeast Texas (Thursday) to southeast Louisiana (Wednesday), potentially as a major hurricane.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here are the forecast impacts from Marco:

Winds: Tropical Storm force winds could occur from Cameron, LA eastward along the coast, possibly extending inland to the I-10 corridor. The timing would be in the late Monday-early Tuesday time frame for south central Louisiana and during the day Tuesday for southwest Louisiana.

Storm Surge: Water 1 to 3 ft above ground level is possible for the southwest and south central Louisiana coast, in the late Monday-Tuesday time frame.

Rainfall: Depending on where the rain bands form, local amounts of 2 to 4 inches are possible Tuesday.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Storm Surge: At the coast, water could be over 10 feet above ground level. Depending on where Laura makes landfall, storm surge can back up rivers and bayous and flood over 30 miles inland.

Rainfall: Depending on where the rain bands form, 5 to 10 inches with locally 15 inches will be possible starting Wednesday into Thursday.

08/22/2020

Two hurricanes could hit Louisiana next week. Our local impacts of wind, rain, and storm surge will be based on what side of the storm we are on. If we stay west of these two systems, our weather will not be as bad if we were east of these two systems. Stay tuned for updates on these scenarios.

Tropical Storm Marco could become a hurricane soon. It is forecast to be in the southern Gulf of Mexico tonight, and threaten Louisiana Monday into Tuesday as a category one hurricane.

Tropical Storm Laura is moving across the larger islands of the Caribbean, so it isn’t expected to strengthen until it gets in the southeastern Gulf of Mexico late Monday. It will become a hurricane in the Gulf and threaten Louisiana by Wednesday.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It is still too early to have any confidence on where the two storms will make landfall, so the following impact points are likely going to be changing over the next few days.

Winds: Hurricane force winds could occur from Intracoastal City, LA eastward along the coast, with tropical storm force winds extending inland. The timing would be in the Monday-Wednesday time frame.

Storm Surge: Water 2 to 4 ft above ground level is possible for the Louisiana coast, in the Monday-Wednesday time frame.

Rainfall: Depending on how fast the tropical systems are moving, and where they make landfall, rainfall totals could be in the 5 to 10 inch range.

An important message from the U.S. Census Bureau: We are beginning the homestretch for the 2020 Census Census takers will begin going door-to-door around the country next week, to help those who haven't responded yet answer the questions. Even so, people can continue to respond on their own: online, by phone and by mail.

For all of you who support the 2020 Census, this is a time to reach out to friends, family, business associates and colleagues. Remind them to respond. Tell them how important a complete and accurate count is to our communities. If you don't have the facts, you can go to www.2020census.gov and get educated. You can also direct your friends to the website so they can learn why responding to the Census is so important for local communities and our state.

Funding for schools, hospitals, roads, assistance programs and much more are determined by Census responses. Census data give community leaders and businesses vital information to make decisions about building community centers, where to open new stores and clinics, and planning for the future. Responses are used to redraw legislative districts and determine the number of seats Louisiana has in the US House of Representatives. It's important for all of us that everyone is counted!

It affects our federal funding for the next 10 years. It's our civic duty!

I’d appreciate if YPD could send a traffic officer to patrol Shore Drove. I don’t mean in plain site. I mean sit on a side street like Barton Terrace and clock the cars speeding down Shore. It’s gotten increasingly worse since summer has begun. I understand to many that is a thru road but this is my neighborhood where my kids play.
Just want to say thank you to Officer Guidry for the resolution to my call. Very professional, courteous and a pleasure to deal with!!
What’s going on with all that noise?
Dear chief Boudreaux. I understand your department is tryin to make money to pay for the department and it’s equipment but police are not above the law and cannot break the law . Lead by example. I just passed in front of the new station on Bonin rd and one of your units is blocking the driveway at the fire station.
We need extra police patrolling the two way cross of South Larriviere and Chemin Metairie near Southside high between 6:45-7:00am ... each morning as I’m waiting to cross over due to heavy traffic flow they have cars behind me who are trying to turn right onto Chemin and they get on the corner where it blocks us waiting to cross over seeing the right side. This morning as I was waiting to cross over they had a car do that and making hand movements to me & as it was clear & I was about to go they decided to cut me off and go straight almost causing a wreck and they were on the right side of me. I thought they would have turned right nope I was cut off for them to go straight towards the school. I was beyond furious because I’m being patient waiting and they have others who aren’t so patient with traffic.
What a special moment for these two young men! Thank you sir for taking the time to make them feel extra special!!
When is trick or treat for Youngsville?????
Only 24 Seats Left For the October 26th Hunters Ed Field Day. Please Don not wait till the last minute. It will most like be filled by then!!!!!!!!Ha Every body there are only 24 seats left for the October 26th Hunters Ed Class. Please Do not wait until the last minute. These seats will go fast. That is all
Glad to see y'all out patrolling at 0230 in the morning when I leave to work every morning. Keep up the great work...
