DISCUSSION: As of the middle of this afternoon on this Friday (August 25th, 2017), we (i.e., hundreds of atmospheric scientists from across the nation) are continuing to carefully monitor updates on the stats and forward progress of now Major Hurricane Harvey. Between the epic rainfall on tap, the clearly strong winds associated with this powerful/incoming tropical cyclone, and the major storm surge (which is already increasing quickly in many places), this is going to without question be a very historic tropical cyclone landfall for millions of people in its path. Attached above is an afternoon briefing updating from myself (Meteorologist Jordan Rabinowitz) which details the latest on this very (and increasingly more) dangerous tropical cyclone and where things will go from here over the course of the next several hours. There will be many more updates on our Twitter feed (@gwccwx), so be sure to follow our national correspondent team there on Twitter, on Facebook, and here on our website!
