    Hurricane Barry

    Is it me or does it look like the center of circulation moved a little bit to the southeast?

    Busy Tropics sept 2018

    Looks like a bunch of the recent GFS runs are all showing a significant system developing around the Yucatan/Caribbean around October 1. Still a ways out, should be interesting to see if the Euro picks up on it.
  3. I don't get why there's so much hate against the media for overplaying the storm and not against the models. Up until a couple days before landfall all the models had this forecasted to hit as a strong cat 4. All the media was doing was warning the public. The models ended up being wrong.
  4. Wow 1-2 feet of snow in the interior mountains of West Virginia and Kentucky. Must have been traumatizing for the tens of people who live there to deal with snow amounts which they are perfectly accustomed to.
  5. It's funny how he's from NYC and yet forgets about the impact of post-tropical-cyclone, former extratropical storm, former category 1 hurricane, with maximum sustained winds of 80 mph, Sandy, a storm which made landfall 90 miles away from Manhattan, and yet caused the most destruction that NYC has ever seen from a weather event.

    Hurricane Florence

    Obviously this is 2 weeks away so it really means nothing, but the GFS has the remnants of 92L going right over the same area.

    It starts strengthening again at 72 hours.

    Does anyone know how the topography of the Chesapeake Bay would affect storm surge if it made landfall a little south of DC? I can picture something similar to the way Sandy caused the huge storm surge in the NYC harbor as it funneled the water into the bay. Would DC be at risk in a similar situation?
