  1. This is not the best example, but today we had a weak tropical storm pass through the Philippines. The heaviest rains were found well north and east of the center of circulation. While the exact center is hard to define at this point, it is somewhere west of the main islands roughly where the red circle is based on information provided by the JTWC and my best estimate. My questions are, what would be the cause of the heavy rain continuing well to the east of the storm center, and is there a technical term for this? https://www1.pagasa.dost.gov.ph/index.php/2-uncategorised/2700-radars Link to Satellite (Time sensitive) http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/PS/TROP/floaters/02W/flash-ir-short.html

    1/16-1/17 Event OBS

    Thanks for the update from Eden, I've been waiting for someone to chime in from there. The radar looks good for a couple more inches in Rockingham County, so a decent snow event for sure.

    I self published a couple of books through create space and have been satisfied. My books are available on Amazon in both print and through the Kindle format which makes them available internationally, but most of my sales come from my own effort. I usually order them in bulk and sell them myself when I am visiting the states and also sell them through a couple of mom and pop bookstores on a consignment basis.

    Major Hurricane Irma

    This is beyond a decent site. It is probably one of, if not the best, forums dedicated to the weather and meteorology that can be found, and there is a wealth of talent posting here.

    Google "Miami mayor nuclear" and you will find it's not just CNN. It's just about every major news outlet. They are all just reporting what the mayor said, that's all.

    ABS TV is reporting just one confirmed fatality so far on their Facebook page.

    The tornado warning is showing up on the radar screen. Not sure why it's not included it in the text.

    Major Hurricane Irma

    I have a friend who lives in Charlotte Amalie and we were chatting around midnight local time last night and we both agreed at the time that it looked like the eye would pass north of St. Thomas. Looking at satellite and radar right now, that no longer seems to be the case. I haven't been able to reach her to get an update, but I'm pretty sure she is too busy making final preparations to be chatting with friends and family at the moment.

    Major Hurricane Irma

    Looking at pictures of the island it seems to have some elevation to it, but not too sure if this is the best plan. https://twitter.com/richardbranson/status/905415713225146368

    Hurricane Irma Local Impacts/Evacuations

    I have a friend on St. Thomas and she is not concerned about her personal safety for this very reason, but she is aware that if the island is unfortunate enough to take a direct hit from Irma that the damage will be extensive. Islands that experience storms on a regular basis are very well prepared for events like this. For example, the island of Itbayat in the Philippines took a direct hit from Super Typhoon Meranti just last year which had winds of 185 mph and there were no fatalities reported out of a population of just over 2,800. I am not downplaying the current situation, just trying to reassure those who may have friends or family on the islands that may lie in the path of Irma that a direct hit by a storm of this magnitude does not necessarily mean that it result in a mass casualty event. https://weather.com/news/news/typhoon-meranti-itbayat-island-northern-philippines

    Harvey - Main Thread

    If there was still any argument as to whether or not this would be the costliest natural disaster in US history, the events over the past 24 hours should put that to rest. The amount of real estate that received 30+ inches of rainfall since this all started is incredible. Inside of that area many places received 40+ inches with isolated places seeing 50+. This is just the rainfall aspect of the storm. This disaster started out as a category 4 hurricane hitting the Texas coast which was bad enough in its self. This will be one for the ages. Unbelievable.

    Harvey - Main Thread

    From watching radar I would think the community of Orange saw at least that much in a three hour period. the final numbers will be interesting to see.
