Cat 5 Major Hurricane Patricia


Recommended Posts

Cloud tops beginning to cool again, and it appears to be beginning to make a more northward turn... Next flyby will be really interesting.

I would say Emiliano Zapata is the place to be if Josh wants to get near the center.

 

To make matters worse, she's moving nearly perpendicular to the coastline.

 

Looks like she's moving faster as well. The surface wind speeds in the front right quad, along the coast, will probably be in the unprecedented category.

It's starting to get near the original track...

Yeah...EZ or Careyes look to be the place to be....Patricia was well behaved most of it's life and then pulls this just when it's about to landfall.. It's currently in an ERC cycle, so the inner eyewall may be doing long trochoidal wobbles inside the much larger outer eyewall.

Yep. He is on his way to EZ. Told him he may have to head further N to Careyes or Chamela. Can't lie. Not fully comfortable but trust his judgement. Running out of time and has to find somewhere to hunker down.

Actually I have heard strong worded declarations from officials and SMN people in the news. My FB feed is full of Patricia

My friend is watching the news and they are saying it wont be so bad. these are newscaster, not twitters. might be a single news station. still horrible because people wont think it's so bad.

I know him...he wants to get in the center, lowest over land pressure reading from a hurricane is just too tempting :P

I would imagine this might be similar to Charley on crack. Approaching the coast at a similar angle that Charley approached Florida, and a small, but very intense inner core. I remember them issuing tornado warnings where Charley made landfall, because it was literally like a massive tornado buzz sawing the entire area.

Frankly, it's pretty much too late to do anything if you aren't already, besides getting to a sturdy building nearby.

Might be a single station. I have heard them from popular news outlets...I have probably heard the words 'histórico' (historic), 'más intenso' (most intense) and 'jamás registrado' (never recorded before)...more than a dozen times.
