  1. Hurricane Whiskey and X-Ray seem fun.
  2. If the NHC didn't want regular folks calling storms "he" or "she" then they probably shouldn't use a list of names that clearly alternates between male and female sounding names. I know its more properly an "It" but I understand why people would call it a "she" or a "he."
  3. Most of the guidance just seems a bit too far away to give New Orleans the worst. The bend left near the coast helps them a good deal. It looks like Morgan City and Lafayette is in the cross-hairs.
  4. It does seem right on the edge of taking off, there was a cyan ring in the 37 Ghz at 07z.

NOAA3 0809A IDA OB 07 MAX FL WIND 66 KT 132 / 15 NM 09:51:11Z Weird eye shape there, elliptical with a 30-210 degree axis, 10 NM by 35 NM.
  6. The probably with Rita if I remember correctly is how massive the stated evacuation was and some bad communication where far too many people from Houston on high ground evacuated who shouldn't have.
  7. Right, I guess I wasn't sure how much the shorter term jogs to the right would affect the final landfall location, given that the forcing latter should be left.
  8. The synoptic pattern to me suggests that stronger=west. I think a stronger Ida ends up diabatically building that ridge to the northwest of it.
  9. There's a double wind max on recon.
  10. Brian Tang's MAE analysis is showing HWRF having the best performance with this storm so far, at basically all lead times.
  11. a bit over an hour ago. Symmetrical, with banding, but no proper CDO or bonafide eyewall.
  12. An accordion plays, gently
  13. That's the first time it's had hurricane-force SFMR
  14. You know the storm is going to be weaksauce when the majority of the talk is about many people are going to lose power.
  15. Latest extrap pressure is 984mb on the recon. Certainly has been deepening today, fallen about 10mb or so from this morning. No stronger winds found yet though.
  16. Recon mission 12 will be there in an hour or so.
  17. Henri was just too ferocious, had to turn back.
  18. An Andy Dalton led offense? Yep.
  19. The whole northeast and Ma is awash in warm air at the low and mid levels. There just isn't much of an ET assist here. Very little baroclinicity.
  20. I'm assuming this track is bad for Narragansett Bay? The winds kinda stay out of the south/southeast because of the angle of approach.
  21. I can see on a eye on the vis now.
  22. Idk. The recon this morning had a bit less of that e wind maximum as it had tightened and become more stacked. I think it will be small for new England TCs but probably better on the east side than the modeling would suggest
