  1. The NHC has the potential for two more named storms in the next 48 hours. I cannot remember seeing 5 named storms at the same time in the atlantic/caribbean basin.

    I am processing the photos I took from the ef1 tornado we had in Chatham county just east of Savannah. I live about a half mile form the damage path.

    Central PA - March 2018

    Until we control the weather, the weather will control us. I was watching from afar, and thought it was a bit warm for the amounts called for in EPA. Everyone (just about) got this one wrong, it happens.I don't blame the mets or the models, we just don't know enough about the atmosphere to get it right all the time.

    Central PA - December 2017

    I was born here so I kind of know the lay of the land. We live on one of the islands and it is amazing. Food is incredible here. It has gotten cold here, right now we are about 23F. I moved here o escape the cold . Late in 2016 I had a portion of my lung removed due to a cancerous tumor. I have been in remission and things are good except that if I get in to cold air, I cannot breath. We thought that the 2 or 3 days a year that it gets cold here wouldn't be an issue. as far as the history, this place rocks! I live about 10 minutes from both the city and Fort Pulaski. ( a 1800's fort). lots of tours and other things to do.

    Just moved to the Islands near Savannah, light drizzle here. WWA for overnight for freezing rain.

    Hurricane Maria

    the only difference will be how far the debris fly. My concern is that the storm will increase in size and spread out the hurricane force winds. I believe this happens after an eyewall replacement.

    Local Media Coverage of Irma

    If you have a roku box, load the X channel. under the 24 hour streaming section, you will find a list of tv stations listed by state. there are a few Florida stations listed. also there are a few streaming on LIVESTREAM as well.

    Major Hurricane Irma- STORM MODE

    quick question: didn't Charley strengthen rapidly as it came up the coast? I seem to remember it going from a cat 2 to a cat for in one 6 hour period.

    Major Hurricane Irma

    IIRC Andrew strengthened over the everglades. Does anyone else remember seeing that? Andrew was upgraded to a cat 5 after reevaluation. Also my family survived Andrew in Homestead. I remember seeing the pictures of the devastation . Incredible.

    The lake effect snows have left about another 3inches today giving me more snow this week than I had in the last 2years. Most schools have closed again and road crews are drinking large amounts of monster energy drinks. My road is barely one lane wide and I have seen Facebook posts were no plows have touched some of the streets. One of the city managers posted that the main streets, hospitals and other critical streets would be done first and all alleys and minor streets would be done by the weekend.

    the forecasting has gotten worse, BGM is afraid to up the totals because of sleet mixing in, but it appears that we could get another 10 inches or so in the next 4 hours. That would put us close to 30 inches. I had measurements of 19,18.5 and 18 while outside. (taking a break and going back out in an hour or so). the wind has picked up.

    I cleared part of my driveway only to get to the road and find it wasn't been touched in hours. We are getting slammed again with a heavy burst. local tv met says 2-4 inches an hour until 3:00.
