NOAA and NOAA Partnership Stations Relative to the Storm
Storm Analysis

No further QuickLooks will be posted for this storm unless conditions warrant and the
National Hurricane Center (NHC) issues a new Tropical Storm Warning for the U.S. coastline.

 

As of 09/14/2008 11:00 CDT, water levels are falling along the Gulf Coast from southern Texas to Mississippi and range between 1 to over 5 ft above predicted, with higher levels in riverine, bay and lake waterways.   A NOAA partner, the Texas Coastal Ocean Observing Network (TCOON) stations are showing high water elevations in the Houston Ship Channel (Manchester, TX) , and Sabine Lake (Rainbow Bridge, TX).  Water levels in Lake Pontchartrain, LA range between 2 to over 3 ft above predicted.  Barometric pressure has returned to normal across the region and winds are decreasing from southern Texas to Louisiana.

Water levels in bays and associated waterways may  include impacts from hydrological forces, including rainfall runoff.  For additional hydrological information see NWS Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Services or National Weather Service Forecast Office.

Water Level and Meteorological plots available below are updated automatically.
