    2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season

    I was just going to note that there's a new system coming off Cabo Verde.

    Winter Storm? Jan 18-19th, 2019

    Finally really picked up on the NW side of Indy about half an hour ago, and still going. Not a lot staying on the ground but good sized dendrites and wind.

    Major Hurricane Irma- STORM MODE

    Forecast post-mortem by the Capital Weather Gang. Pretty sure commentary to this board about the need for additional forecast technology funding is preaching to the choir though. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/capital-weather-gang/wp/2017/09/11/irmas-track-forecast-was-adequate-but-theres-significant-room-for-improvement

    Major Hurricane Irma- STORM MODE

    Great 48 hr GOES16 loop. Really highlights where she ingested air over Cuba, and how close she came to really reintensifying.

    Tropical Banter Thread

    Way too chattery to say in the main thread, but I have to say somewhere -- wouldn't you think that TWC could cough up the dough to get their reporters microphones with some kind of waterproofing? And send them out with more than one single wireless mike? (Though it was entertaining to watch Cantore and team wind the wire around the column of the building there.)

    Tropical Banter Thread

    Amazing to watch the chasers on Marco in the eye now. Sure hope they're safe from surge once it passes though.

    Strong spot in the RFQ there. Any possibility it went to cat 4 right as it was landfalling here?

    Major Hurricane Irma- STORM MODE

    Seems to have surprised the mets discussing it too, but the one replying is a NWS employee in SW FL so one would hope he's looking at the right records. No guarantee of course.
