Would like a graphic, please.

Is what he just said good or bad, srainhoutex?

well, it means the rain with this storm isn't very heavy, which is good. the fact that it is on a n-nnw heading is merely an observation and is not necessarily good or bad



Now, about those winds.....


Off topic and just for fun: Want to see something I rescued from the floodwaters on Memorial Day? Here's the link:

For every Bill....there are many, we always an IKE...I've seen, on social media, lots of negative comments. Nobody got this storm wrong. It does what they do...an unpredictable act of nature. I wanted to thank all the participants on here...I will be here for the next one.

Forecasting the weather is an inexact science no matter if we're talking low pressure disturbance or high pressure ridge. No storm is predictable.

This is FAR from over.

Serious feeder bands offshore and wherever one sets up (and stalls) could receive upwards of 10" of rain over several hours.
Hopefully the tail end falls apart, but these systems are known to drop a surprise or two on their way out.

Except for an arm of the storm that's extending all the way into Corpus, I'd say the tail end is losing its punch. That's to be expected with loss of daytime heating.
