    Mid to Long Term Discussion 2019

    Look to the upper midwest at 6-7 days out and see if its really there. Then all we need to worry about is breaking down the ridge. I fear we are already seeing some familiar battle lines drawn.

    And that may be the only moisture your lawn sees as well unless the tropics come through for us. I didnt get a drop from Dorian in the Triad.

    If we lock in the SER again and sweat through October I think at least 70% of this board will need some sort of mental therapy. The long range models are just not good at predicting pattern changes.....ever. #trustbroken

    There are benefits.....it is much easier to kill my lawn for reseeding when it is bone dry. And I was able to open up a mile or so of atv trails yesterday on the tractor without sliding around in mud. Beyond that, this is miserable! I just hate to rely on a tropical system to break the pattern because we all know how bad the inland flooding can be across the hill country.

    Dorian Observations

    I know there are plenty of folks suffering, but for what its worth, the "good" parts of this storm are being felt well inland in the Triad. Partly sunny with an awesome steady breeze. This is roughly the same weather we get here every time a storm runs up the coast. Just a beautiful early fall day. 81° and the breeze negates any humidity.

    Dorian

    What a joke. Next month Wake County Schools close for a breezy fall day! So ridiculous. I can certainly agree when winds are forecast to gust over 50mph for an extended period. But keep in mind folks, there are areas all over this great nation where that's a perfectly normal day!

    Durham, Raleigh, Chapel Hill. Roughly 20 mile sides I suppose.

    The nighttime lows are starting to crash into the lower 60s here in the Triad but we still have a couple of weeks to get past the tropical influence and reset the fall progression. Looks like we will be running 5-7° high for the next 10 days or so. I swear if we get a SER that locks in I'll go postal. I cant deal with that again this year.

    Hurricane Dorian Banter Thread

    You might be surprised. They may port call and take you to Coco Cay and just not let you tour Nassau. I bet they clean up Coco Cay real damn quick. Two weeks is plenty of time to bring in dozens of private cleaning crews.

    Hurricane Dorian Banter Thread

    Nope, lets get it right. EVERYONE hates (non red-tag) NYC/NJ tropical posters. (love you guys in the winter though, kind of funny to watch the freakouts) Evidently people in the Bahamas have nothing on "Sandy Survivors". Give it up people. Sandy, by comparison, was a little coastal flooding combined with a few EF-1 tornadoes for localized heavy damage. Most of an island was just wiped off the map by Dorian. No equals here.

    So is one to impart that if the mid level ridge #2 in Papins discussion slides over the top of Dorian in the next 36 hours then he is blocked and will resume a westerly course into FL/GA? Edit - NM, just saw his part two. Second ridge is expected to receed thus opening the path NNW up the coast. Makes sense.

    Category Five Hurricane Dorian

    Seems we are in unprecedented territory here. So what likelihood is there that Dorian is so strong he is creating his own trajectory or impacting other steering currents to the point where models cant "see" it until it is too late? If he chews up another 100 miles westerly a LF is all but certain into FL.

    Category Five Hurricane Dorian

    So basically 17k people are getting ready to endure a tsunami higher than their land mass and 175mph+ winds for a few hours. Not your run of the mill Sunday. Prayers, well wishes, thoughts, whatever you choose, for them all. Was there even an evacuation effort? I didnt hear of one.

    Category Five Hurricane Dorian

    I was just looking at that as well. If we wake tomorrow and Dorian is still tracking due west, the entire right side of the forecast track is a moot point. He's going to LF in FL if only by a few miles. Light steering currents arent going to turn a Cat 5 on a dime.

    Me: Watches YT video about RC's island that said those giant water slides were built to withstand Cat4 winds. Dorian: Hold my beer. Bahamas going to look a little different after this weekend I'm afraid.
