  1. Models having a lot of trouble narrowing the goalposts. Must be a mess for emergency managers.
  2. First light visible is going to be a sight. Deep convection now wrapping 3/4 around the eye. Nice outflow continuing to develop. Those extraordinarily high RI probs look to verify today.
  3. Just getting back home and finally getting a good look at Ian. IR doesn't always tell the story, but tonight we see numerous meaningful clues that after developing a structure earlier in the day, Ian is finally taking advantage of an increasingly favorable environment. From just a few hours ago, it was evident that Ian was starting to pick up the pace of organization with the development of spiral bands and hints of an inner core. With IR, we see multiple vortical towers trying to wrap around that core. The very intense convection itself probably has this near hurricane force if not already there. Finally, I like taking a look at the Weathernerds WV to make sense of whats happening under the cloud tops. Much like the IR, you see how in recent hours the towers have gone up and tried wrapping around a developing core. I haven't had a chance to dive deep into long term track and impacts, but in the last few hours Ian has certainly put "meat on the bones" so to speak. This leads to the eye-like feature (we don't quite know until confirmed by recon) that @MattPetrulli posted earlier. Nothing earth shattering, but I expect recon to find Ian a hurricane tonight. Once there is a fully developed inner core, this one should be able to take off intensity wise. Dry air may have hindered the convective activity earlier, but this is a delayed but not denied situation IMO.
  4. A clip of the damage survey. Will probably upload the longer one tomorrow. New personal records for low pressure (941.9mb) and wind measured (65.3mph). Great chase. I should note the very last photo is just over the border in New Brunswick. Everything else is the Arisaig area and coastline west.

  7. If Ian could just slow down a little more I think I could get there. It’ll be close. Ugh. What a chase in NS. Damage all the way back to New Brunswick.
  8. Trees down all the way into New Brunswick. What an event.
  9. Trees down all the way into New Brunswick.
  10. Significant wind damage near and west of Arisaig. Surveying now.
  11. Passing through the northern shoreline of NS and there is substantial damage. Sparsely populated, low signal.
  12. Passing through ground zero for wind and there is substantial damage.
  13. Causeway held up fine. On my way to the northern shore of NS to survey the area.
