  2. My one and only pimp of this stream from Gulf Shores, Alabama
  3. Awww... well, I suppose it's impressive the superstructure of the Wendy's sign survived at all. It technically did survive... That might have been earlier. Edit: Nevermind, top of the sign just went flying.
  4. I'd be willing to bet LCH didn't arm their generator before leaving the office. As soon as power went out at their office the data feed relays for the radars (and their controlling computers) went offline.
  5. You remember I do like to think I'm better about not posting satellite images every 15 minutes. Last time I'll share anything in here for the night. (I'm sitting in PJs in Norman, OK - that video just happens to be from folks in my organization.)

  7. Agreed; I'd be willing to bet we're going to get one of those sudden 20 knot jumps in FL winds within two hours.
  8. USAF just extrapolated 961.3MB - which is still 7 millibars lower than the 968.6MB extrapolated about 65 minutes ago. I believe it is safe to say we have entered a 2020-level stupid deepening phase, because 7 millibars in an hour is still really dumb. Cool.... Winds don't seem to have responded upward just yet, but the USAF dropsonde in the NE Quad did have 123 knot winds at 780 millibars an hour ago. Those may be able to mix down more easily soon. Don't be surprised if we see winds suddenly spike over the next couple of hours as they catch up with pressure drops.
  9. We should be getting several dropsondes soon and hopefully those will confirm whether or not the NOAA aircraft's 953 MB is off or if this thing just pulled a 2020. USAF coming in to the SE eyewall now.
  10. NOAA aircraft measured uncontaminated 96-97 knot SFMR with similar FL winds in the eastern quad. They're circling in the eye now to play the 'dropsonde wonder' game.
  11. Speaking of which, the NOAA aircraft is carrying two and a half times the usual load of dropsondes. Normally they will drop around 20, but today's crew is going to try for 50. That'll be useful!
  12. About 20 minutes or so, actually. We'll know pretty quick. They're already reporting an expansive swath of hurricane-force winds in the NE Quad. That is just awful for the LA coast.
  13. The 0Z Euro and its ensemble spawns go all in on Texas. The 06Z tropical plots also showed a noticeable shift west. I don't see how we avoid new hurricane watches down the Texas coast at 4 AM, including into Houston.
