    Category Five Hurricane Dorian

    My distant relatives in Man-O-War and Marsh Harbour survived, but they had their house flattened. No video of the height of the storm as far as I know, but the post-storm videos looked horrific there. I’m pretty sure they sustained cat 5 winds.

    Does it count as an official landfall since it was already extratropical when it made landfall?

    Looking Ahead to Fall and Winter

    Despite this, I would say winters over the last 10 years or so have been much improved over the winters of the 2000s decade. I think Greensboro, at least, may be above the 1981-2010 average snowfall average despite the sizzling temperatures. Of course, it only take some storm around here. For example, Greensboro finished 50% above average in snowfall last year because of one storm, despite the rest of the winter being irredeemably terrible (aside from the surprise snowfall in April). I am looking forward to this winter after having lived in Florida the last three winters...

    Congratulations. We’ve got a budding weather savant.

    Dorian

    To follow up on this, they did survive. Their house, however, did not, to say the least. Just saw a photo of it and there’s hardly anything left.

    Nothing since around noon when things appeared to start to get bad there, though I wouldn’t expect to hear anything for awhile given the situation.

    Beautiful weather this weekend.

    It’s definitely important to remember a Florida landfall is well within range of a “typical forecast error” 48 hours out.

    Hurricane intensity forecasts are always a crapshoot, though. Michael wasn’t supposed to get nearly as strong as it did right before landfall in the FL panhandle last year, either.

    I have stepfamily who live in Man-O-War Clay just north of there who didn’t evacuate... It looks like they’re about to get destroyed by the eyewall now.

    I have some extended stepfamily who lives in Man-O-War near Marsh Harbor in The Bahamas and decided not to evacuate. WTF??? Hope they survive...

    I think the 00z GFS is going to be further OTS for NC/SC than the 18z was. EDIT: Never mind. I shouldn’t try to extrapolate.

    The 00z GFS looks pretty similar to 18z at hr 36. A tick south, but not by much.
