Hurricane Harvey is inland however a good solid chunk of the circulation remains over the Gulf of Mexico and this is creating huge problems and an unusual situation. First the hurricane is weakening very very slowly. The satellite shows how impressive the cloud structure still looks even though Hurricane Harvey’s center is inland. Winds inland continue to howl with gusts to 60 to 70 mph still going on in areas well inland of the coast.

The second and bigger issue is the rain. We have the Corpus Christi real time radar below showing the spiral bands of heavy rain but in the wider radar loop below you can see there is a band of rain to the northeast over Houston & Galveston Bay which is bringing huge amounts of rain into Southeast Texas at the moment. With Harvey now slowing down to a crawl the rainfall amounts will be record breaking in many places.

This is the GFS forecast rainfall forecast map through next Friday as Harvey is forecast to go nowhere all week. The model is forecast up to 2 feet or more of rain and remember that this does not count the rain that fell yesterday and last night! Some places will get a years worth of rain in a week’s time.

When this is all set and done Hurricane Harvey will go down in the record books and the name will most likely be retired from the list of hurricane names. The United States went 12 years without a major hurricane striking land (which includes Hurricane Sandy). That streak wound up being broken in a monumental way.

MANY THANKS TO TROPICAL TIDBITS FOR THE WONDERFUL USE OF THE MAPS
