10/4/13 UPDATE from Dave Baker in the Storm Team 3 Weather Lab

"The official forecast from the National Hurricane Center puts a landfall near Venice, Louisiana then a second landfall along the Alabama/Florida coastline. A strong cold front should sweep through Acadiana keeping Karen away with very little impact here at home."


We're keeping an eye on Tropical Storm Karen, with help from our friends in the Storm Team 3 Weather Lab. Dave Baker says,"The track takes Karen as a minimal hurricane over the central Gulf of Mexico, then weakens it to a tropical storm as it approaches the northern Gulf Coast late Saturday into Sunday. A cold front should keep most of the impacts east of Acadiana."
