  1. Wouldn’t it be something to retire a letter of the Greek alphabet!
  2. That cell over Frederick may be our first to go today. Little rotation in it as well.
  3. You may not be wrong on that. We’ve never really had a situation like this directly hit that area besides over 100 years ago. Such a densely populated region from the beach inland N/NW. The fast speed and large wind field inland would also have maximized the damage in the suburbs.
  4. I think it went through the keys at 145 or so. Then Marco Island at 130 I believe. I also have family in Naples that can say it was frightening even at that level.
  5. Yep, mentioned that in my post about the absence of Caribbean Cruisers in recent years. All the monsters have been north.
  6. Agreed, Miami/FL east coast has escaped for some time now (04 was rough with Charley, Frances, Ivan, Jeanne). Galveston/NOLA/Biloxi haven’t had it too bad either
  7. 2005 had Emily, Katrina, Rita and Wilma as 5’s. Am I missing any? Haha
  8. To be honest, there will probably be a more intense storm within this year with the Caribbean pretty prime for a September long tracker. Think about it, we haven’t seen a central Caribbean hit of significance in the past decade. Everything has been centered Antilles and north. It’s been a while since places like Nicaragua and Central America have been threatened by monsters like Dean, Felix, etc.
  9. edit this to say Yutu hit the Mariana’s at like 190mph if I remember right (technically US)
  10. Correct, Maria was 155 at PR, 165 at Dominica I believe. Also second that Guam has seen a 5 and potentially Samoa?
  11. Great comparison, Charley of course a much together core/wind radius. Went from 120-150 at landfall with pressures similar to to Laura.
  12. That’s definitely 3”/hr stuff. I had to pull into someone’s drive off Bachman’s mill when I journeyed to the squall. Was driving down as the visibility began to drop, then snow from a tree came and must have covered the entire car. Car went sliding and luckily 10 seconds later when I could see again I found myself on the opposite side of 97. Let’s be thankful no one was coming.
  13. Well this puts a couple of you guys near 7” for this event as a whole. Models have squalls through the afternoon, and I’m watching that batch in PA. A respectable 5.25” west of Minster with a fresh half inch from the squall that just moved through. Interested to see how much more a few of us could tack on.
  14. Crazy to think that 31 looked just fine compared to those, does it look fine closer out into New Windsor?
  15. That’s sick, route 97 near Bachmans Mill this morning was a complete white out, plus there was all that snow blowing off the trees making matters worse. Sidenote, 97 stinks this morning both north and south of Westminster
