  1. Its amazing how the gfs keeps showing basically the same thing. Turning toward NC stalling just offshore and making a beeline to the east northeast
  2. That's been the norm the past few years so I think that'll be the case again. People always think once fall arrives that it's here to stay but we always have an Indian summer
  3. Could still end up a decent rainmaker even without a direct hit
  4. I watched a YouTube clip from channel 7 news the night before gloria hit and they had no idea if she was going to go inland or hit LI. They also made no mention of how strong the winds would be just that there was a hurricane warning. This was just 12 hours before the worst of the storm. It's amazing how precise the models are now in comparison
  5. I'd rather 90s than this muggy high dewpoint crap
  6. Somehow it manages to not make landfall despite being within 50 miles of the NC coast and turning almost due east
  7. Activity's winding down now
  8. Surreal 'For first time in 300 years, there’s not a single living person on the island of Barbuda' Barbuda has been left completely devastated by Hurricane Irma. An estimated 95% of Barbuda’s structures are damaged, and the entire island of around 1,800 people has been evacuated. “The damage is complete,” says Ambassador Ronald Sanders, who has served as Antigua and Barbuda’s ambassador to the U.S. since 2015. “For the first time in 300 years, there’s not a single living person on the island of Barbuda — a civilization that has existed on that island for over 300 years has now been extinguished.” https://usat.ly/2jq503O
  9. I believe last year we never had one
  10. It just goes to show how difficult it is to get a Cat 5 make landfall in the US. It either needs to go into the Gulf like Camille or unimpeded north of the islands like Andrew. Even if Irma hadn't interacted with Cuba I doubt it would've maintained 160-180 mph winds, especially once north of the keys
  11. Back to later August weather for this week. After the cool stretch it feels even warmer
  12. Yeah cat 2 Now 110 mph
  13. And he's not even in the worst of it
  14. Looks like Naples is getting the full brunt now
