  1. You can return a list of Daily Climate report products here: https://api.weather.gov/products/types/cli And then get by weather office, for instance this is GRR: https://api.weather.gov/products/5b11aae6-52cf-4d05-819d-bf373ce18dae Parsing the productText node looks challenging but probably less so than scraping their HTML
  2. Already 90 in Grand Rapids MI and it's only Noon. Hit 95 yesterday beating the the record by 3 degrees.
  3. Trolls will troll, but the radar is showing a NW movement recently https://radar.weather.gov/ridge/radar.php?rid=BYX&product=N0Z&overlay=11101111&loop=yes
  4. Bastardi predicting Cat 5 at LF, FWIW
  5. 112 terajoules...
  6. So if a building is rated for 140mph, does that assume higher winds above 30 feet? For instance a storm could be blowing at 140mph at 30ft, and 170mph at 200ft. Is the likelihood of 170mph at higher levels part of the calculation for taller buildings? Or would 140mph be the max for such a building regardless of height?
  7. Not to change the subject but isn't the 12 Euro coming out now? Anyone have early access?
  8. He talks about the worst case, and storm surge for Miami:
  9. I listened live to the Prime Minister's report from Barbuda and his sat phone audio quality was terrible. Sounded to me like he said "1 fatality". No one should take the 1,000 report seriously until we get more info. Hopefully it's wrong.
  10. Agreed. Maybe not the eye itself, but the eye wall looks like it could hit the northern fringe of the city.
  11. Are we looking at the same chart? Euro has the best scores at 96 and 120.
  12. Could someone explain why the latest Euro would initialize Irma at 962? Thanks!

  14. GRR likes the GFS so far...
  15. Just noticed that JB hugged the Euro this weekend east coast storm bust, and got burned when it finally shifted east to match the GFS.
