    Absolutely poured while I was walking home in Charlottesville. Not fun.

    Missed the storm while I was in a class but we’ve got some small tree branches down in Charlottesville.

    Ah, this is the heat and humidity that I remember down in Charlottesville. Absolutely horrible day and it’s only gonna get worse this week.

    2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season Tracking Thread

    Great discussion from Levi. He believes the HWRF might be onto something, FWIW.

    Interesting tidbit that might explain the decision made by the NHC.

    2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season Tracking Thread

    I don’t claim to know anything about hurricanes but based on Twitter commentary this past hour from the best meteorologists on the platform you’d think it would at least be a 160mph cane.

    2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season Tracking Thread

    NHC still has it at 150 mph. At 1100 PM EDT (0300 UTC), the center of Hurricane Dorian was located near latitude 26.3 North, longitude 75.1 West. Dorian is moving toward the west near 8 mph (13 km/h), and a slower westward motion should continue for the next day or two, followed by a gradual turn toward the northwest. On this track, the core of Dorian should be near or over portions of the northwestern Bahamas on Sunday, and move closer to the Florida east coast late Monday through Tuesday. Data from NOAA and Air Force reconnaissance aircraft indicate that the maximum sustained winds remain near 150 mph (240 km/h) with higher gusts. Dorian is a category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Some fluctuations in intensity are likely, but Dorian is expected to remain a powerful hurricane during the next few days. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles (45 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles

    Why are all the tropical threads the worst?

    Category Five Hurricane Dorian

    Check out the legacy GFS. Makes you realize why the FV3 upgrade was needed. Drops the pressure to the 920s.

    One month until fantasy snow threats begin and the good old Digital Snow Thread can return. [emoji3]

    I’m not sure what relevance the “youth” have but LWX definitely does overwarn. Ian and others on Twitter discussed it just recently, and it doesn’t take a met to see that LWX often warns sub-severe stuff. In a busy metro area where it isn’t hard to see tree damage, I get it, but it’s overdone. Ian mentioned tiered warnings, IIRC, which I certainly wouldn’t mind. Likely confusing to the general populace. Totally off-topic, but a heck of a storm season we’ve been having. Been busy. Somewhat jealous I’m still not back in town!

    It’s super pretty when you manage to beat the classic Maine fog. Hiked the mountain in the morning when we couldn’t see anything, then did it again in the afternoon when it cleared up.

    Meanwhile in Bar Harbor: Still jealous of the sick lightning storm though. Don’t get to see too many of those.
