    Major Hurricane Florence: STORM MODE THREAD

    The convection to the NW side of the center is crazy now. Really blowing up. For a Category 1 storm, this thing is packing quite a punch. I think it's what they said - it's distributing its energy in different ways rather than increasing winds. It's telling that the pressure hasn't dropped at all in a while.

    There is still a lot of convection blowing up around the center. Clearly the storm stalled in a favorable enough spot to keep it going.

    No one is suggesting it is undergoing RI. But considering it is creeping back towards Category 3 status (it is 6 MPH from that category) is crazy, especially given that it is approaching land and was in terrible shape not too long ago.

    I don't know why people insisted otherwise, but anyone looking at the IR loop of this thing could tell it was strengthening. Now it looks like strong convection is wrapped around the center, and it even appears as if an eye is forming. Now, I have no idea what will come of this, but the storm certainly looks better organized than at almost any time today. On a more important note, I hope everyone in the Carolinas is ok and that this storm passes without causing too much damage. Everyone talks about how "beautiful" these storms look, but the destruction in their paths is devastating to families and wildlife. Just keep that in mind, because the people in Florence's path don't think anything about this storm is beautiful.

    Yea, the eye is gone now. It's not DOA, but I don't believe it will be close to a major hurricane by the time it even reaches land.

    I'm no expert, but the one hour improvement on satellite was pretty impressive, given that the SW side tightened up a bit and the eye is circular and clear now. Again, just going off of what I read, it is not that odd for a hurricane to struggle a bit coming off an ERC, and people here have noted that pressure falls may precede an increase in wind. Guess we'll have to see what happens here., but I don't see how people can discount continued weakening or rapid intensification. We've seen that it does not take a long time for these systems to gain an incredible amount of strength, and that could very well happen here.
  7. Back to heavy snow in Hoboken as well after a lull of moderate snow for about an hour.
  8. Probably not coming your way at this point.
  9. If that's the case, it's a joke. But what can you do?
  10. Staten Island was approaching a foot, I believe. We're not in the City, but in Hoboken we've got to be approaching that range at point. It's snowing lightly here now, but we had pretty heavy snow for a while before this. We'll see what comes of the next few hours.
  11. Earlier today you crossed out the NWS predictions and wrote 3"-4", right?
  12. It's not just LI. People throughout the City are reporting over 10 inches, some over a foot, though you seem to glance over those. In Hoboken, we had over 7 inches about three hours ago, and it's been snowing heavily ever since, with several hours of snow left to go. Meanwhile, I'm pretty sure you had much of LI in your screw zone last night, but frankly I'm too lazy to go back and find the post.
  13. It's been snowing pretty heavily in Hoboken for a while now. The official total as of 8:45 was 7.3 inches here, but I suspect we are significantly higher than that after two hours of pretty heavy snow. Not 4"/hr heavy, but heavy nonetheless. If this thing continues to crawl along, it's possible we can get several more hours out of this.
  14. Supposedly Islip reported four inches of snow in the past hour! Amazing.
  15. Snowing heavily in Hoboken. Was encouraged to see that mesoscale discussion which said rates around 1 inch per hour are expected for the next two to four hours. I suspect that will put us around a foot, if not a bit higher. The NWS still seems to think our final numbers will be in the 13-15 inch range, so that is good news as well.
