This link also provides an interesting perspective to the severity of the wind:


Landfall is at 1am. I’ve set an alarm for that time to check the meters for the local airports (Corpus Christi’s Airport being the one I am most interested in seeing, winds of over 120 mph).

I’ve been tracking this storm ever since the NHC highliter the chance for development east of the leeward islands. I think that IAH/HOU will close down later tonight, CRP is already closed down.

Our airports will stay open until the winds get to 40+. Anyways, my family has been preparing for the storm. Harvey will be like Allison.

Our winds are extremely bad right now. Gusts are a problem though.

Likely worse, you guys will get very similar rainfall but the winds will be much worse, Harvey is almost a category 3 and Allison was only a TS

What does the white highlight indicate? Looks like I might be feeling some wind up here in Montana.

Harvey is now a very dangerous Category 3 hurricane with winds of 120 MPH and a pressure of 943 MB. To any community members living in southeast Texas, please make sure you are totally prepared for this storm! 30+ inches of rain are likely in some places.

Thanks! I am just outside of San Antonio. The grocery stores are empty but we should just get a lot of rain and some wind hopefully. The bad part is that this part of the state starts Hill Country which does not help with that much rainfall. On a good note our aquafer was getting on the low side so this should help. I know my town has been accepting evacuees from the coast.

The big question is how long is it going to just sit and stall over us…

@Chris_S… Here’s an update Chris. Looks like it gonna go NW. No much high ground along that flat stretch of Coast. Good luck to all. Regards, Max

A Cold Front from the north is going to prevent the Hurricane from going north for a little bit but the rain will be there for days and it will fall heavy for long periods of time.

Hurricane Harvey is now a CATEGORY 4 storm with 130 MPH winds and 941 MB pressure. Catastrophic impacts are likely. Some areas along the Texas coastline will likely be uninhabitable for weeks, possibly months. Keep them in your prayers!

Our Hurricane Hunters are really brave! We need to give them credit, they save countless lives yearly.

This is going to be quite the weekend. I live about 40 miles west of Houston, and it’s been raining and storming the whole afternoon. We were in Denver and we’re splinting to fly out at 8 pm but took a flight at 6:30 am instead, and the weather was still pretty rough at Hobby at 9:40 am.

Harvey has officially made landfall as a category 4 hurricane with a pressure of 938 MB and 130 MPH winds. Please keep the people of southeastern TX in your prayers, as there are already numerous reports of buildings being destroyed with people still inside. Likely to be a rough next few days in southeastern TX aviation as the storm will linger.

Severe damage at Port Aransas/Rockport airport. Rockport, Port Aransas and surrounding towns got hit the worst, as that’s where the storm made landfall.

Houston and a good portion of southeast Texas is underwater. Highways are unrecognizable except for the signs above them, and there is lots of flooding going on in the city and other towns in southeastern Texas. KHOU is currently closed and the vast majority of flights in/out of KIAH are cancelled. It’s only supposed to get worse from here, please keep the people of southeastern Texas in your prayers.
