    I remember people pulling their hair out over Bill last year.

    If this damn thing goes another update without being named, expect a suicide attempt.

    2016 Atlantic Hurricane Season Discussion Thread II

    It's not textbook yet but it looks like it's trying to be. Less of an Isabel and more of an Epsilon, basically. When was the last time we had an annular storm in the Atlantic?

    It's like Elena's illegitimate daughter. Just make up your mind and do something.

    I can't wait for it to troll us for the billionth time and fall apart!

    Rita was in the open gulf, though. Most of the models seem to be suggesting that this will have much less time to strengthen before another landfall. Plus, Rita was already an organizing hurricane by the time it was able to start bombing out, and given its track record, we'll still be waiting for this one to even get a name.

    It's getting a decent curve to it now, at least. Hot towers started popping up around 19:15 UTC (still have no idea what time that is converted ).

    August 24 Indiana/Ohio Tornado Outbreak

    Have you seen this one?

    Unlikely, but looking at that just made me really nostalgic for 2008.

    August 24 Indiana/Ohio Tornado Outbreak

    Oh. Thanks. Still really impressive scouring though. I'm not experienced in damage photos but if you told me it was EF-5 scouring I wouldn't disbelieve it. I was amazed at the amount of scrutinization that goes on with determining strength from pictures like this over on another forum... people were coming up with things I wouldn't have begun to think of, like the type of soil, what was growing in the field, depth of scouring, etc. Gave me a headache. One of my favorite videos ever comes from the Henryville tornado (language warning btw).

    That looks like a bare slab near the end of the scar there. This was only given an EF-3 rating?

    New subforum. 99L might end up being one of the biggest anticlimaxes since LOST.

    I'm not terribly interested in another northern gulf halfacane collapsing at landfall and yet causing needless destruction anyway.

    Reminds me of that Andrew video on youtube that features a 911 call on the morning after. Some woman calls to tell them the power is out, lmfao.

    There's radar data of Edna but you could probably analyze these pictures better with your eyes closed. http://www.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/106016.pdf http://journals.ametsoc.org/doi/pdf/10.1175/1520-0469(1958)015<0264:EROHE>2.0.CO%3B2

    Hurricane Bob 25 years ago

    Oh wow, I didn't realize how perfectly Alex rode the gulf stream. I thought he was just an example of the best that a storm could possibly look that far north. I knew the coastal waters were much cooler, but I figured they didn't extend far out enough to have much effect until right at the time of landfall. And of course dry air and shear will always be an issue, but assuming the hypothetical scenario where both conditions are at their lowest, and cause minimum disruptions... what's the best a storm could look? The 1938 scenario is the most likely to bring cat3+ conditions to NE, but don't all the super-fast-moving storms have godawful satellite and radar presentation, like Juan? I'm not thinking about how strong a NE hurricane could be as much as I'm wondering how tropical the storm could remain in nature, and how classic of a structure is possible.

    Alex at least showed us that it was possible.

    Hurricane Bob 25 years ago

    Can't help but wonder just how intact those storms really were. Wasn't 1938 a warm-seclusion cyclone? I can't imagine it looked that terrific. Carol is the only one that sounds like it could have looked decent. I mean, Bob is the strongest NE hurricane in recent history, and this was how he looked.

    I'm not seeing how it's going to get its crap together with a circulation that huge. :/

    Everyone on my mom's facebook feed is saying there was a small tornado in Stafford lol. I was out and watched the storm from across the Rappahannock river, and I saw a pretty defined rainshaft which I guess could have been a microburst. There was also a lot of scud. Definitely didn't see any noticeable rotation though. If I was that close to even an EF-0 tornado and had no idea I'm going to be piisssed.

    Wow! And the gravity wave definitely not good news.
