  1. Does anyone know where I can find an archive of GOES data for the Atlantic basin? I can find satellite data archives. But they're in just about every sector I don't want lol.
  2. Looks like you just barely missed a mesovortex on the leading edge. Probably led to a localized area of ~70mph winds.
  3. I think the fact that it is in the entrance region to a jet streak off to it's NE is doing it a lot of favors and allowing it to reach this intensity. Pretty much evacuating all the outflow this storm is generating on the north side.
  4. AFD for DVN. Seems like they are hinging on destabilization and expect some sort of a TOR threat to evolve based on their AFD
  5. No, given sandy's hybrid nature right up until landfall, I think it was declared ET in the advisory afterward. Don't quote me here though, I'm not a sandy expert.
  6. I doubt it. They are used to strong mid-latitudinal lows and polar fronts. They are accustomed to high wind events and they build for them. Ophelia would need to have wrought some pretty absurd wind damage. Not saying it won't, just doesn't mean they'll request retirement if it does. I was talking more in general as opposed to this one in particular. That graphic just brought that concept to my mind. I feel like Igor went post tropical before Newfoundland and got retired, but may have maintained tropical characteristics. And Ireland gets these strong extratropical lows all the time, shouldn't be too bad for em.
  7. I wonder if they would retire a name if the effects from its post-trop/remnants were especially bad and the country requested retirement. Not saying this one would, but that graphic made me consider the question.
  8. Easily. I am actually interested in some heavy rain potential due to anomalously high PWAT values and what seems to be a uninterrupted feed from the gulf. Especially given that the orientation of precip amounts on the models would suggest that we could have training thunderstorm activity. Although where this sets up can not be pinned at this range given the more mesoscale nature of the matter. Of course there is also a potential severe weather aspect with more than adequate deep layer shear values, although this is already being discussed elsewhere.
  9. That was a tropical depression though. But I guess I did say TC and not named storm, do I guess ya got me, could've swore that Vince was extratropical at landfall in Spain, but guess not. Whether Ophelia can do it while still maintaining TS status remains to be seen.
  10. I'll believe that when I see it. That would be exceptional and I don't think a tropical cyclone has ever struck Europe. Any that have are extratropical by the time they reach EU. There was that one in like 1868, but I'm not counting it.
  11. While I can't confirm this. Alex 2016 was pretty Far East, so were Vince and Epsilon 2005.
  12. What on earth is happening here? did the center jump north that much?
  13. Also these are a very similar flight path at a very short time differential. Significant increase in FL wind here. (NOAA 2 when it flew in from the north) (Air Force when it flew in from the north)
  14. NOAA2 found flight level wind speeds of hurricane force in the eastern quadrant on the latest pass. Pressure down to 992.
  15. Along with what was just said, its also worth nothing that it seems central winds are picking up in accordance with the developing core of convection. Remember the void of any wind above 20kts this morning all around the central region? Nate is in much better shape to intensify rather quickly now that its crossed off some of the basics./
