00z UKIE at 96 is basically sitting over OBX

Relax. They're going to get more inland than the OBX. The real mess starts Sunday as we see what we're really playing with here.

I would imagine this is what gets you in trouble. North Carolina's coastal plain is flood prone, and while it seems it is well put together, it is what you would call the 'black belt'. The area between Raleigh, and the OBX is full of low income people who live in trailers, and have homes in flood prone areas as the area east of Goldsboro is filled with tributaries to the major rivers, and connect to the sounds.

Whoa! I've introduced politics because we live in an era when everything is political.  Cable news ratings are going through the roof and football ratings are dropping like a rock. I can understand people criticizing me for bashing someone like Rick Scott.  My comments were incendiary especially considering the fact that most users on this board are white males and white males in the United States are overwhelmingly Republican.  But you my friend are playing the race card.  People in Jacksonville, North Carolina know what to do when a hurricane approaches or threatens the North Carolina coast.

Keep politics out of here.

Ever since Puerto Rico, Maria's eyewall has not been the same. This is visible on GOES 16 Infrared. Maria often has what i can only describe as two vortices circling inside a more rugged looking CDO. I understand it is still a major Hurricane, but its inner dynamic has something misfiring. Is the eye not properly stacked? Or is it something else? I'd love to learn more about what has occurred inside the storm after it emerged back over the ocean.

Such a discussion may be pertinent as to whether Maria can intensify or not. Whether it could filter out that damage during an ERC over the next few days.

It looked to my untrained eye that there was a little bit of tilting to the NW of the circulation, at least for a while earlier today where the MLC became decoupled. I think the conditions in the last 24-30 hours haven't been ideal once it fully got away from having any land interaction affecting dry air ingestion and inflow, but conditions are improving for a 24-36 hour window, and I imagine we will see the core tighten up and stabilize tomorrow. I don't necessarily think that means intensification, but at least a better internal structure.

The MLC may have tilted, but it did not decouple. Decoupling would have resulted in an entirely different looking satellite presentation.

you're right. my use of terminology was poor. I meant to say displaced. in other words, the system was not fully vertically stacked

0z Euro at hour 72 is way west, even closer to the coast than 0z GFS was. Waiting for more frames, but not a good trend for OBX.

Crawling NW towards OBX at 120, should still get kicked back to the east eventually, at that pace.

00z ECMWF is coming west and closer to OBX. That in itself is important. Maria comes close enough to create some excitement. But the pattern looks less than favorable for an intense system. Going on track alone, the threat is increased. But to be optimistic, the hurricane itself is significantly weaker in that environment. We have to take the shift west seriously however.

Also, that trof continues to slow dramatically each 00z run.

Eps is also very close to Hatteras

6z NOGAPS came significantly farther West and clearly less progressive thru 120. Now has LF between Cape Lookout and Ocracoke it appears. Thats a red flag to me in my experience using this model. 6z GEFS have slowed Maria and mean has ticked West very close to NC Coast.

Even if some speculation (or weenie hope)on this message forum is realized with a nc landfall, maria is a shell of her pre pr former self now and is entering an environment that encourages a lot of weakening and perhaps one that causes a subtropical transition that far north.

A sign of the insanity this season has been when a cat 3 in the Atlantic is called a shell of it's former self. There's nothing unimpressive about her right now, and a category 1 landfall in NC is still fairly significant impact.

TS dennis stalled off hatteras for a few days and put more water in the pamlico river at Washington than any other storm. So even if it doesn't landfall the slow motion could still cause huge effects if it has a large enough wind field.

At this point the outer banks are fully equipped to handle a cat 1. Other than some power outages and beach erosion they would be just fine. No need to panic because a cat 1 may get close to the outer banks. I'm sure @donsutherland1has some stats as to how often the outerbanks see cat 1 or greater canes.

If a cane ( even a Cat 1 ) parks just off the OBX for a day there will be more than power outages and beach erosion, HWY 12 will wipe out in dozens of spots and new inlets will be cut trapping anyone on those parts of islands....the dunes can last for a while but once they get taken out homes will start to go, its one thing to have those conditions for 12 hrs or so but once you get into the 24-30 hr range the over wash would be extreme. Then you have to take into account that all that water in the sounds will be blown inland and put 8-12 ft of water in places well inland...Irene did more damage to the OBX than many stronger hurricanes.....

Irene put more water up the river than any storm this video is shot well inland and shows 10ft or surge

 

This is because all this water had to go somewhere

Agree. Someone used the phrase "shell of former self" and it's caught on. Also people downplaying a cat 1 or ts is crazy. Damage has been done with less. It does put people in danger. I don't like how people are downplaying it. Especially ones that don't even live in Nc. Hurricanes and Tropicals are bad period. It's unnerving to hear this talk.  It's like someone is saying "I'm sorry that tree fell on your house, could have smashed you and your family though. No biggie. At least you have insurance."  These storms are a big pain and a tax on us all. Ditto to what downeastnc said above. No, it won't be damage necessarily like PR and Dominica, but dang it's no good period.

Irene wasn't a cat 1 down by OBX

100%  the truth.  The storm would be noteworthy but not catastrophic.  That part of NC has been hit countless times by weak hurricanes.  The infrastructure and people there have been exposed to hurricanes over and over again.  They are probably one of the more prepared spots in the country to handle a weak hurricane.
