I rarely hype..but when I do..I'm the most dangerous man in the world

I got to admit Kev you do go off the deep end on occasion, but I bit into your hype on Monday, bought my generator that day and had it wired Thursday and I am glad that I did.

Do we know what the foliage maps look like for CT? Most trees have shed there leaves in my area, so I think that will help minimize some outages.

Oaks in this area still leaved, and some maples still have some leaves left... but most leaves have dropped. I'm 10 miles from the coast though.. far SW CT tends to drop later I think.

(lyme CT).

I don't see any model showing winds that high. The highest gusts I really can envision for coastal CT is 70 knots based on model soundings.

I may be mistaken, but I believe Roger usually uses the moon for his forecasts

I thought models couldn't handle what the winds would be with this since it's such a unique storm? I've heard that thrown out a few times, I'm confused.

Glad to hear you made it back safe Jerry...even though we haven't met lol

And glad you are here to experience this!

This is academic, but the 18z GFS was north a little. It's particularly notable when you look at surface winds on the high res maps. Smokes all of LI with 50-70 knot winds now around 27 hours out. That's a bump north with those winds. "center" of circulation is also north perhaps 50+ miles. Again, one model, just amusing myself by looking....At 30 hours it's plopped right over Asbury Park on the 18z

Already gusting to 25 mph at 1k

I was just up at Topsmeade Forest in Litchfield..they're at 1200' and they were probably gusting to 35. Very open spot though..

So maybe Ryan can agree, but I think the interior of CT, especially SW CT are most at risk for whiplash LLJ that occurs as CAA steepens lapse rates. This occurs after 7-8pm depending on timing.

I'll take it...but what exactly does that mean?

Chris M screw dropsound LI buoy gusts to 47knots

The VAD's will be fun to watch through the storm...

OKX radar showing a solid 40-45kts sustained just off the deck now in the 2000-5000ft range. That would explain the gusts occasionally reaching the surface around 45kts on the open water.

BOX at 25-35kts at 1K-5Kft over the radar site...

What did Malloy say about shutting highways tomorrow? I missed it

Why would they shut the highways down? Won't be hazardous to drive just because of wind and a little rain, and lots of people do have to go to work tomorrow. Commute will probably be a breeze (pardon the pun).

I highly doubt you or anyone else except essential EE's will be going to work tomorrow. the state will essentially be shutdown with winds gusting 70-80mph

I agree. I think we see 2 wind maxes... one prior to landfall. And then a 2 hour period of ripping on southerly LLJ post landfall.

If landfall is 00z... that's a full 4 hours prior to high tide. Unfortunately winds will still be onshore post landfall.
