My hunch is that they’ll both veer to the north. Hurricanes sometimes form a conga line in the Atlantic and they follow the one in front of them (where the low pressure is).
So far, we’ve had 3 hurricanes, only 1 of which was major (Florence).
Last year we had 10 hurricanes and 6 were major.
Global Warming must be on hiatus.
Thanks as always for your efforts, NN. They are greatly appreciated. I was ground zero for Hurricane Matthew in 2016; the eye came right over us. My hometown’s downtown was completely flooded and, even now, about 40% of those businesses have not reopened. Some have just thrown in the towel. To top it off, my health is so bad now I’m not even able to do the normal storm prep. Thankfully, I’m blessed with a wonderful church and community “family” (no relatives!) and will get some help from them!
Went down and put all the stuff on the screened porch inside the home.
Installed a couple of ARLO camera’s and put the roll out trash can under the house.
About all I can do - now time to wait.
I am not liking Isaac, I hope we get a good cold front next week to protect the Gulf Coast States from Isaac.
A little advice from a Katrina evacuee Carolina. The day you plan to evacuate, like everyone else waiting to see it it turns, and it wont,
leave the day before.
I wonder how the folks in Galveston feel about a hurricane named “Isaac”?
:(Thanks for the thread.
Low wind sheer and 'BATH WATER' are formulas for Hurricane strengthening.
If it has sustained winds of 145 mph, then it could have gusts higher than that. Fortunately, it is projected to have 140 mph sustained winds as it approaches the Carolina...
Watching from Wilmington here.
Thanks for this thread.
Ive got a bareboat charter next weekend in the keys! Should be ok but well be watching Isaac closely!
Joe Bistardi of Weatherbell has been dead on regarding his prediction for the season, and for Florence. (Scroll down that page for the videos).
Over a week ago, he predicted it's formation and projected path - which is pretty much where the models tend to center right now. It's still early and things will change, but right now it looks like just a hair south of Wilmington NC is approximate (maybe a bit north, maybe a bit south).
To those who say it will veer north or out to sea, the models say otherwise. They are all pretty much in agreement this time.
This latest has it almost a direct hit on Wilmington:
Gloucester County, Virginia here, and daughter lives in Virginia Beach. Were very warily watching Florence.
From the NHC as part of the 11am advisory on Florence (’Key Messages’):
“There is an increasing risk of two life-threatening impacts from Florence: storm surge at the coast and freshwater flooding from a prolonged heavy rainfall even inland.”
>> My knee-jerk reaction: Think ‘Hugo’ or ‘Floyd’
You know what I love? How there’s two nuts named after people: Hazel and Filbert.
I rode out Eva in a submarine. My oh my..
the Atlantic aint that active this year but has more to hit than the Pacific.
