    SNE "Tropical" Season Discussion 2019

    Watching that feature over the lakes drive towards Dorian. Mentioned in the main trop thread: wonder if we see this have a tick or two nw? Not anything substantial, but enough to bring more significant weather outside of downeast maine, cape, islands. that s/w over the lakes might give Dorian a little robert kraft tug.

    Yes, watching that feature over the great lakes, might give it a slight tug, best viewed on full conus

    Taking a long look at the water vapor loop and some of the features driving to meet Dorian. I wonder if watches might have to be expanded in portions of SNE and NNE? There's a possibility this makes landfall further west on Nova Scotia than I see on the cone. TS watches might be just a good precautionary measure for coastal portions of areas aforementioned.

    It's a 5 knot difference in wind. Give it a rest.

    With all respect, we are all looking at the same data and charts in here. We see that.

    If this storm was actually maintaining strength, had more forward speed, and core was intact, it would mean less of an impact for areas *further* away from the center. So as this transforms and weakens slightly, winds tend to spread out further from the actual core/center, inland areas, etc. This is my point. Intensity does matter to those near the center. I am trying to explain that a weakening cane does not necessarily mean a better situation for the majority.

    I wouldn't get caught up in the intensity forecast at this point. Wide swath of winds expanding from the center. This is going to be very impactful for the Carolinas. As we can see, it's already spinning those extra special larger tornadoes that mappy loves.

    I do not buy a major landfall judging by the look of the current core. Looks like it will be 2 or maybe 1. But I think this will actually expand the threat to the Carolinas. Weakening major hurricane = larger wind field?

    At least I didn't get Ian and Randy mixed up. That'd be weird

    You've put up with my dumb questions for about 15 years, a couple of the red tags in SNE subforum deserve awards for it. Hell, we've got James writing apocalyptic snowstorm models in our main disco threads, and no one speaks against it

    Already deleted it. I should have just edited it to say WxTrix. I know she misses me.

    It was so long ago I legitimately confused you with WxTrix, I do apologize for that. Completely my mistake. Thank you for the wishes and I also extend the same to you.
