Observations yesterday the 13th as Tropical Storm Ike approached:
A Steep drop in air pressure began
23:00 UTC 29.17in | 987.7hPa
01:17 UTC 28.99in | 981.6hPa steady until 01:46 UTC
03:16 UTC 29.17in | 987.7hPa
By measuring atmospheric pressure at ground level during a huge storm we can prove when its center is overhead, and the duration of steady lowest pressure may help in measuring the eye's size.
At the deep Low Pressure midpoint(01:30 UTC) the wind direction dramatically changed to due N.
Current Pressure 30.04 in | 1017.2 hPa (hectopascals)
Today was pleasant&sunny with some lingering winds. Φ

Yes it is still raining. Monthly total right now: 2.25in | 57mm.
Max Measured Wind Gusts: 15.0mph|24.1km/h NNE, although that figure may be lower than the actual. The grass is growing, record rainfall reported, and a nice start for a temp climate change in the region. Stay tuned...Φ

Hurricane Gustav's outer bands are approaching. Some of the storms are spiraling from the NE as the large, slow moving hurricane moves toward the NW. Wind speeds of 30 knots on average and steady rain can be seen on the Shreveport Radar. Earlier it was a pleasant sunny Labor Day. An earlier post today did not work for some reason. Φ
