  1. Is it just me, or has it actually been that SAL/Saharan dust/abundance of dry air is becoming more and more of a problem each year with tropical development.
  2. Bit of a dry slot here in Astoria. Just a very fine frz drizzle.
  3. Go home NAMyou are drunk.
  4. I shoveled a bit so I could get out of my apartment this AM, it was like shoveling wet cement.
  5. Is that actually a warm core system?
  6. My parents live in Boynton Beach, well away from the water thankfully. How bad will it get there do you think?
  7. If the eye stays off shore, the winds will help keep down the storm surge. If it comes inland, it will be nasty.
  8. What is causing that large convection that seems to be separate from the main circulation.
  9. What is up with that big blob of convection to the east of the main circulation?
  10. Based on where Hurricane Matthew is at, how long can a plane stay in it, taking readings, etc, before it has to head home to re-fuel?
  11. That is a general rule of thumb for any storm in the Atlantic/Caribbean.
  12. That is one hell of a right turn. and it is not too often you see an tropical system go from an invest directly to a strong tropical storm.
  13. Global warming could also be causing an expansion of the Sahara, which would mean MORE dry air coming off of Africa, not less.
  14. http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/analysis_monitoring/enso_advisory/ensodisc.shtml NOAA saying it will be a neutral winter. What will that mean, given the other known conditions, to our weather in the NE?
  15. No relation to me (also a david schwartz). Although I did want to be like him and be on TWC when I was younger
