I hope Indystorm is ok.  He hasn't been on here in 6 weeks and he mentioned that he was hoping to head to southern IL for the eclipse.

Thanks for the concern.  Had some computer problems at home then took vacation to see the eclipse.  See post in Eclipse thread.  Plus the weather wasn't really all that exciting.

It'll die right in time for winter.  :devilsmiley:

One could certainly feel that way, lol. But the last two MET autumns were over all mild, and we haven't had a (super) early autumn since Idk? '09?  We may be due a cold autumn and early winter instead of the flip/torches of the last two.

Nearly stationary storm sitting over Windsor Ontario for about 2 hours now. It has occasionally crept across the river and it brought some crazy rain to downtown Detroit. Has to be localized flooding under those returns.

It has been feast or famine.

Over the past 48 hours, my PWS has recorded .07 of liquid.

Thought we had a winter '17-'18 prelim thoughts thread but I couldn't find it.   Anyways, I see Bastardi is out with wxbell's prelim winter forecast, (no, I'm not a paying member, it's viewable to the public).   Anyways, yawwwwwwwwn.   Not as mild as last winter, (how could it be??), but not as cold and snowy as the 2 before it, (now there's a forecast going out on a limb).   Overall most of the sub he has as -1 temp for Nov-Feb.  

Reading Bastardi for years and years, I translate that into him thinking it's going to be a milder winter again but doesn't want to alienate potential winter subscription renewals.

I suspect that locally, he'll be correct.   We will probably beat our 9" last winter but still end up with a winter that will be far short of memorable.

....Ok enough of that, back to enjoying this beautiful late summer wx!

So the 06z gfs shows a 900mb (26.58 inches), hurricane approaching the southeast coast around day 9.   When it hits South Carolina it 'weakens' to 946.   A nice chuckle with my morning coffee but it got me wondering if there is some kind of law of physics that caps a hurricane/cyclone's lowest possible pressure and what that is.

lol I certainly don't know the answer to that question. Posted for posterity.

Last night I dreamt that I was at the 2024 eclipse.  I'm not sure where I was located but the sun appeared larger than it should have, like you would see maybe 30 minutes or an hour before sunset.  This of course makes no sense for the 2024 eclipse as it will be occurring at roughly the same time of day as the one last week.  Anyway, I think this may be a sign of eclipse withdrawal.  :axe:

and the 12z doubles down with it getting to 898mb ....   I think that might be considered a cat 1 black hole

For shizzle and giggles I wonder what peak wind gusts would be on a 26.52, (898mb), pressure hurricane?

Jim Cantore would need to be wearing Depends on air. That's approaching Wilma status.

Probably something like 180-200 mph, if not a bit higher.  

I read about the GFS having a bias with overdeepening hurricanes, so it may be overdone, but at this point there's no reason to discount a possible cat 4/5 with the possible exception of land interaction (especially if it's Hispaniola/Cuba).

honestly I didn't realize there was orecedence for such a strong hurricane.    I had never heard of a sub 900mb hurricance....so apparently it is rare but not unheard of.

Yes.  Rita was another one that got below 900 mb, and Katrina came pretty close I think.

There has actually been plenty of sub 900 hurricanes in history. The most notable ones being Typhoon Tip in 1979 with a pressure of 870 mb,Hurricane Patricia of 2015 with a pressure of 872 mb,and the aforementioned Hurricane Wilma with a pressure of 882 mb.

While we're on the tropical subject, here is something interesting that was discovered a few years ago.  I'm not sure if it was already posted but I don't remember seeing it before.  It is an early season hurricane from May 1863 that slipped under the radar, likely due to the Civil War.  It was named Amanda because of a ship that was run aground, and made landfall in Florida as a category 2 with 105 mph winds and then the remnants moved into the Midwest. Not easy to find a lot of weather data from back then so who knows what kind of rain amounts it produced.
