    September 11-13 Severe Weather

    I've had a met tell me that "radar confirmed" meant that a tornado was actually there whereas "radar indicated" meant only rotation was observed. It does get confusing.

    Tor warning now for Lake County Illinois and confirmed tornado in Michigan.

    Hurricane Dorian Banter Thread

    I'm ashamed of NOAA for throwing their NWS colleagues under the bus. President Trump exhibits a severe narcissistic personality disorder with an ego that refuses to let him admit he is human and can make a mistake. This disorder can explain all of his tweets, discounts of others, and love of adjectives like great, wonderful, best, superb, etc. "I alone can fix it." The behavior is putting our country at risk. I'm also ashamed of many of my professional psychological and mental health colleagues for refusing to highlight this disorder for what it is. They don't do so because of what is known as the "Goldwater rule," which essentially affirms that unless you have personally examined a client you cannot make a formal diagnosis. Trump's actions and tweets are a matter of public record. And now for an agency like NOAA to put politics ahead of science is infuriating.

    Sept. 2-4 Severe Threat

    Tom Skilling of WGN news had video tonight of a couple cars being flipped either by a downburst or that tornado.

    Scattered storms starting to form this evening on a ne/sw axis. Been watching Dorian so much I needed to look homeward.

    Hurricane Dorian Banter Thread

    Perhaps....but those of us who are Midwesterners hold scientist/storm chaser Tim Samaras, killed in the May 2013 El Reno OK tornado in high esteem. His passion must have been a little crazy too.

    Those of us who have been around here awhile know of many of Josh's previous hurricane adventures. I have always appreciated his courage and reporting. I was really worried for him this time, Patricia notwithstanding. Good news!

    Category Five Hurricane Dorian

    I like to think of it as the butterfly effect....chaos theory.

    Category Five Hurricane Dorian

    That has been my concern all along....concern regarding proper modeling of the strength of the ridge to its north and any apparent weakness from an incoming trough.

    HWRF has Dorian coming ashore near Daytona at 81 hrs.

    Category Five Hurricane Dorian

    Current HMON might be sniffing out an ERC. It has it sitting nw of Grand Bahama Island and weakening a bit but greatly expanding in size compared to the current situation.

    Category Five Hurricane Dorian

    It is amazing that the eye has gone on this long structurally without an ERC. And I think after looking at water vapor loops that the ridge to the north of Dorian will be stronger and hold on a bit longer on its western edge than models predict before the turn occurs.

    Category Five Hurricane Dorian

    I've always appreciated Josh's posts, observations, and videos from prior storms, but I feel really nervous for him for this one, even with the concrete.
