Tropical Storm Claudette - 2009

Recommended Posts

From the SciGuy blog at chron.

TROPICAL DEPRESSION FOUR

Not much to say about this storm as it moves inland during the next day or so. The big question is whether it becomes a tropical storm before doing so, and at this point it's about a 50-50 proposition. It shouldn't matter a whole lot anyway.

Too bad it's not coming to Texas because this is the kind of tropical weather the state desperately needs to break its historic drought.

Updated thread title to "Tropical Storm Claudette." This looks like it'll just be a soaker, which is good because both Florida and Georgia need rain badly. Probably some neighboring states, too.

Actually, Florida would be better withouth the rain. Drought for them was over months ago and they have been receiving alot of rain lately. Georgia needs it though.

That's was south Texas needs! A nice tropical storm with good rain and not a lot of wind... something that moves inland quick enough that it doesn't cause major flooding.

Did we not have a 'Claudette' in 2003 or '04? My belief is that names are rested for 10 years before being used again.

Storm names in the Atlantic basin are recycled every six years. Hurricane Claudette made landfall in South Texas in 2003.

Good new for that part of the country. Nice weak storm with some generous rain.
