  1. 2005 though didn't have 10 storms in a row make it to hurricane strength.
  2. TS Ophelia has formed, way out in the Atlantic, SW of the Azores.
  3. You don't need a well organized tropical system to cause flooding. Even a tropical depression can do that.
  4. Power flickering here in Boynton beach at my parents place. Otherwise so far so good
  5. Looks like there is still a double eye/wind max
  6. Anyone have a link to the hurricane hunter live updates?
  7. Is it possible there is an upper limit to how powerful a hurricane can get where it is at? Maybe Irma has hit that limit.
  8. Does anyone have a link to the latest Irma stats? ie eye wall size, max winds, etc/ thanks
  9. Is the look that Irma currently has considered to be annular, or is the eye too small for that classification?
  10. My parents are in Boynton Beach as well. Far enough inland to avoid any surge/floods. Biggest worry for them will be loss of power. I am trying to see if I can get down there before it hits.
  11. What is the longest time a storm has maintained at least TD status over land?
  12. Snopes says it is fake.
  13. Generally what is the best model for tropical system tracks?
  14. That blow up of convection off to the NE of the center of circulation is odd, but I looked at the water vapor look, and it doesn't appear to be a dry air issue. Is there any shear in the area?
  15. 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.
