    Mid to Late May 2019 Severe Threats

    Ironically, I see on the Jefferson Missouri Fire Department FB page that just yesterday, they dedicated their new fire station.

    2019 Short/Medium Range Severe Weather Thread

    I'm listening to the Police/Fire/EMS dispatch and some of the addresses of severe/catastrophic damage are right in downtown, literally within 1000-2000 feet of the Lewis & Clark Monument, Missouri State Capitol building dome, and the Missouri State Penitentiary.

    2019 Short/Medium Range Severe Weather Thread

    Per Twitter, some residents saying that the twister that went through downtown Jefferson City is a "Joplin-style" event. Sounds dire.
  7. Well, according to the re-analysis project, there are several Category 4 storms close to Category 5 strength at landfall: Pre-records: 1846 Hurricane may have been at Cat 5 intensity near Florida Keys. August 1856 - "Last Island" - 150 mph/934 mb August 1886 - "Indianola" - 150 mph/925 mb
  8. I have to agree. The lack of cold fronts and troughs also contributed to Hurricane Florence's unlikely westward progression from Africa northwest into the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, to an eventual landfall in North Carolina.
  9. I suspect Hurricane Isidore (2002) peaked as a 115 kt Category 4 hurricane. Operationally, it never got higher than 110 kt, despite an astounding satellite appearance, high dvorak numbers, and a pressure of 934 mb. But I suspect it reached Category 4 strength prior to landfall in the Yucatan.

    Major Hurricane Michael

    I've long thought that Andrew may have been stronger than 165 mph at landfall, perhaps more in the 175-180 mph range given the wind damage. The radar and satellite of Andrew, even in the 1992 era, is just so unbelievably powerful in the final hours into landfall.

    Major Hurricane Michael

    Report mentions the possibility that Michael reached 145 kt per Doppler velocity, but I think 140 kt is a good compromise.

    Northern Ohio Obs/Discussion Part 2

    Still very little. It's dark but I can see small flakes falling at a good clip but at first glance outside, it's still calm here in Stow. Very strange. We had a couple inches but nowhere near how bad it was between 2pm and 5pm.

    Northern Ohio Obs/Discussion Part 2

    Momentarily, the snow has completely stopped here in Stow. Not even blowing. Just nothing. Calm.

    Northern Ohio Obs/Discussion Part 2

    I work in Summit County, I'm considering calling off if it's too bad. I don't have to make that decision for a few hours. How heavy will the snow be around 3-3:30pm, ya think?

    Winter Storm? Jan 18-19th, 2019

    I'm near the Akron area, any thoughts on the timing and impact for us?
