Zeta moving out as beautiful fall weather moves in

12:00 AM Thursday

Zeta is now well northeast of the area and we are watching a cold front move across the state. This will bring beautiful fall weather through the weekend and early next week. Look for widespread temps in the 40s by Friday morning.

10 p.m. UPDATE: The National Hurricane Center’s 10 p.m. advisory takes Hurricane Zeta’s wind field down to 80 miles per hour. This is still classified as a Category 1 on the Saffir-Simpson scale. 74-95 mile per hour winds classify a storm as a Category 1. The system will likely become downgraded to a Tropical Storm once it approaches Montgomery, Alabama.

Weather conditions across New Orleans have improved greatly. The clean up will be beginning as the sun rises tomorrow. Do not venture outside these next few hours as power lines and trees have fallen across the area. It is dark outside, so downed power lines and standing water may be tough to see.

There are a lot of storm reports with downed trees, downed power lines, and a few collapsed roofs, as well. Do not go outside tonight to explore. Conditions are very dangerous, and it will be tough to fully survey damage until the sun comes up.

Tomorrow morning, a cold front will roll through early, bringing temperatures down quickly. The weather should be nice for clean up efforts.

9 p.m. UPDATE: The National Hurricane Center’s 9 p.m. hourly update confirms Hurricane Zeta is again a Category 1 storm, weakening as it continually moves inland.

Right now, the storm is progressing across Mississippi near the Pine Belt Region, and it will continue northeast as we go into the overnight hours. More than likely, Zeta will become downgraded to a tropical storm once it crosses into Alabama before progressing into Georgia and then the Carolinas.

7 p.m. UPDATE: The National Hurricane Center’s 7 p.m. hourly update confirms Hurricane Zeta is still moving at 25 miles per hour with 100 mile per hour winds.

Right now, the storm is continually moving out of the state and into Mississippi, along the Mississippi Gulf Coast region on the radar. There is still a considerable amount of wind outside across all of WGNO’s viewing area. Certainly, the eastern winds are strong, but this is equally impressive on the back, western side, as well.

A tornado watch does remain in effect until 12AM tonight, but the greatest concern for tropical spin ups is east of where this is coming inland, throughout Mississippi, Alabama, and the Florida Panhandle.

There are a lot of storm reports with downed trees, downed power lines, and a few collapsed roofs, as well. Do not go outside tonight to explore. Conditions are very dangerous, and it will be tough to fully survey damage until the sun comes up.
