Re: Hurricane Barbara Making Landfall - Heads Toward Bay of Campeche

Curious on what the earliest landfall was... A very interesting hurricane to watch as she ramped up just before landfall and even more curious with the NRL track taking her into the Gulf. Forward speed has been impressive as well.

Another interesting weather event in an already interesting year.

Concerned on the added tropical moisture this will put into the Gulf that will stream north (even if it does not reform in the Gulf) that will flow into the heartland as the next "cold" front moves south. Ups the ante I would think fore another round of strong weather during the current Twister hunts. I say "tropical moisture" vs a real system. it is that warm, moist flow that has been moving north that has fueled the epic and tragic outbreaks there.
