    I only understand point 1 but not the other two. Can anyone enlighten me on what this could mean.

    Less wind shear = the storm can now more easily gain strength and may organize into an actual wrap around tropical storm, and could turn more West, but I'm not seeing it.

    Pressure is dropping = It is intensifying in strength, or would if it had more time over the gulf.

    I'm not seeing what he's seeing though so take his tweet how you wish. Everything is still pointing to a Beaumont landfall and the storm looks terrible. So much dry air now on the east side. Just a sad looking thing and still looks subtropical.

    I can't find anyone else saying anything like this. Just saw on the news that the storm is actually weakening and will most likely only be a problem for counties east of Harris.

    Funny sidenote - our VP at work just sent out an email saying we need to be prepared to work from home tomorrow because Houston is on the dirty side of this storm..... Should I correct him? :)

    Unless the other forecasters start singing a different tune, Herzog is gonna look awful. Turning west? No one else is saying that that I've seen.

    My director said the same thing in a staff meeting. I proudly corrected my boss.

    Is it just Houston or the surrounding areas as well?

    I don't mind the government spending my tax dollars on things like this. Need more of these type of nice things.

    The Space City Weather guys were pretty spot on with their predictions throughout the week.

    absolutely they were! Eric Berger and Matt Lanza. They are the first people I look to for weather events.

    They always are. They said 2 days ago that the most Harris County would get would be about an inch or 2 of rain.

    It's always the TV guys looking for attention that are so wrong.
