The key here is to realize that cyclone and tropical cyclone are two different things.

Tropical cyclone or cyclone. What’s the difference?
A tropical cyclone is a generic term used by meteorologists to describe a rotating, organized system of clouds and thunderstorms that originates over tropical or subtropical waters and has closed, low-level circulation. Once a tropical cyclone reaches maximum sustained winds of 74 miles per hour or higher, it is then classified as a hurricane, typhoon, or cyclone depending upon where the storm originates in the world.

Tropical cyclones rotate counterclockwise in the Northern Hemisphere.

They are classified as follows:

Tropical Depression: A tropical cyclone with maximum sustained winds of 38 mph (33 knots) or less.
Tropical Storm: A tropical cyclone with maximum sustained winds of 39 to 73 mph (34 to 63 knots).
Hurricane: A tropical cyclone with maximum sustained winds of 74 mph (64 knots) or higher. In the western North Pacific, hurricanes are called typhoons; similar storms in the Indian Ocean and South Pacific Ocean are called cyclones.
Major Hurricane: A tropical cyclone with maximum sustained winds of 111 mph (96 knots) or higher, corresponding to a Category 3, 4 or 5 on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.

Pardon the pun, but this is extremely depressing.  As noted above, I already had this storm last week, I don't need it again Tuesday.



Speaking of which, does anybody have a link to the full track from when they first mentioned it in the TWO posted on the first page of this thread?

That doesn't go back far enough.  See the TWO and AFD I posted earlier.  It started in AR/MO even before NHC picked it up and passed between the two white circled Ds in your map..

Pink dots sketched in shows how I recall it from previous AFDs, TWOs ... and passing overhead dropping rain and winds.

This storm is going to be a pay me now and pay me later storm.  The high winds and storm surge and rain is going to batter NO today and tonight.  Then, as the storm moves north, all the rainfall is going to be funneled into the Mississippi River and hit NO from the back side.  And as slow as the storm is moving, there's going to be lots and lots of rain.  The CoCoRaHS reports are going to be interesting for the next few days.
