  1. Winds from Lake Charles NWS And sampling from NO/BR office - rest are here. Stats are hard to put together. These are from the "last 3 hrs" and the rainfall amounts are last 12 hrs. No storm totals that I can find in any PIS. Case in point, the official rainfall map is only 24hrs ending 7am today.
  2. Trying to confirm radar amounts. This station just north of Lake Charles near Ragley has 23 inches in two days. DeQuincy with 3" yesterday and 9" so far today Hard to find stations reporting in that heavy grey radar area. Another one near Ragley with 19" or so.
  3. Still putting down some serious rain. 31.4 inches on radar. 18 inches on radar
  4. https://www.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/GOES/meso_band.php?sat=G16&lat=33N&lon=90W&band=02&length=30
  5. Heaviest rains continue to stay offshore for now with rain rates of 2"/hr. Here are the 3 hr precip radars.
  6. For the record - recon top winds. HDOB with 63kt surface, 80kt flight level Vortex message with 63kt surface 72kt flight level winds Dropsonde  with 96mph winds at 869mb Dropsonde with 71mph winds at surface.
  7. Mission 9 headed in. Mission 10 might be having equipment issues. Its not reported since 9:30 and was still in the storm at that time. It did find a surface wind of 70mph and put it in a vortex message.
  8. Getting closer to dark - getting last vis shots in. This one is neat cause you can see over land the cirrus clouds moving the opposite way the lower winds are. You can also see the COC kinda tuck under or get clouded over.
  9. Recon mission 9 is flying at 10,000 feet, roughly 700mb. The storm symbol is located north of where the flight level wind shift is, marked with X. Signal that there are still either multiple circulations or more likely that the circulation is still not stacked and pushed south as you increase altitude (due to northerly shear?) There was a vortex that spun around the broader circulation which was fun to watch. Think thats what @Qdeathstar was asking about. Now does that vort continue around? Does the surface circulation tuck under the convection and bump south, or remain exposed? Will also note that the last set of hdobs had raw sfmr winds at 61kts, 100 miles from the center edit: I also just caught that where the x is had the lowest mslp at 991.5, compared to 993 closer to the symbol.
