  1. Slight chance at a 11:59 P.M. record low on Friday.
  2. Record low next Saturday is doable.
  3. It also has 122 mph wind gusts for Cape Cod, something is wrong.
  4. Extreme wind warning -- but that is for 115 mph winds.
  5. 12Z RGEM has hurricane force wind gusts across eastern Long Island Sunday evening.
  6. That was cancelled five minutes later, I have never seen that before.
  7. Remember how much Gloria weakened moving up the east coast in 1985, coincidentally around this time period? At one time east of the Bahamas, recon measured one of the lower pressures ever found in an Atlantic tropical cyclone. Of course that has been surpassed many times in the last 32 years.
  8. That was probably due to frictional convergence rather than intensification.
  9. NHC will start issuing one hour position updates at the top of the hour.
  10. When Gilbert bisected Jamaica in 1988, it was a 115 mph hurricane. By the time it reached the western tip of the island, you can tell on the satellite the eye was degrading. About two satellite frames after leaving the western tip of Jamaica, the eye wall was already restrengthening.
  11. Too often people just see warm SST's as if it were the only determining factor toward intensity. If it were only that easy.
  12. That use to be a problem up to the 1980's I understand. These days, I believe recon usually has permission from the Cuban government.
  13. Probably end up looking like 'Hugo'.
  14. Some models have Potential Tropical Cyclone 14-e trying to move up the Gulf of California for a while.
  15. I think there is an internal mechanism in GRLevel3 that prevents plotting of anything over 24" because I found a 40" point in between Pasadena and La Porte but the color is the same as if it were 24".
