Look, will the storm likely weaken as it slows down just off the coast?  Sure , most likely, but that doesn't diminish the effects, it just changes them.  When have you last seen a Cat 3 hurricane slow to a crawl and even stall just off the coast as some of the models are depicting (with several placing the eyewall on the the coast for multiple hours)?  This storm has the "potential" to be far more devastating then even a full on landfalling Cat 4 hurricane simply due to the shear amount of time the effects may be felt along such a large portion of the coastline.  Its going to be interesting regardless and certainly should not be downplayed.

It's funny how he's from NYC and yet forgets about the impact of post-tropical-cyclone, former extratropical storm, former category 1 hurricane, with maximum sustained winds of 80 mph, Sandy, a storm which made landfall 90 miles away from Manhattan, and yet caused the most destruction that NYC has ever seen from a weather event.

His own neighborhood was destroyed yet he forgets about Sandy.

Ted Williams isn't dead.  He's frozen and will be revived at a later date.

Hi guys, everyone in my area is not concerned about the storm, but I am. What do you guys think about my area of 30809, Evans GA. I am to trying prepare , but getting really worried 

The wind probably will not be damaging, could be some flooding of low-lying areas next to the Savannah River. If ten inches of rain fell over the course of three days, what would happen in town... that's kind of the worst scenario I could imagine, if these predictions about Florence are accurate. A few days from now, you should have accurate local forecasts of how much rain, if any, to expect. Right now the local weather is saying maybe two inches and that it will be very windy on Sunday (38 MPH)

josh is chasin' the wrong storm.

Intensity wise, yeah.  Guess it depends how much he prioritizes US strikes over always going for where the strongest storm is.

So HWRF thinks Mangkhut is 300 mph?

I think you mean 300 kph.  It's currently shown as being around 175 mph, which is 281 kph.

It was a tidal surge that impacted coastal areas. Expectation is if live on or near water it does flood.

common sense tells you to get to higher ground. This storm the media hysterical is outrageously lol.

biggest storm in 30 years  I saw on the news.

going to be interesting to see the max sustained winds reported at an official station.My guess is 79 mph.

I’ll say it again.... when I’m on a weather board and see people complain about storms being overhyped I just shake my head.

Regardless of what the models are telling us, what does the atmosphere look like now?  How is the current track trending?  Is it more N, NW, or right on track?  Looks like its on the north side of the "cone" right now?

How so? The group think tank here is on point today.

let the storm play out first & stop being overly aggressive.

If they are saying/meaning biggest in 30 years for the Carolinas, there's a very good case for that.  Maybe not with winds but with all the other factors as others have mentioned.

because downplaying a storm that has the size wind field that this one has AND which is forecasted to parallel the coast for 24 hours at a snails pace seems extremely uneducated and if the media discussed it as you laid out people likely lose their lives.

It isn’t so much a group think tank as it is with frustration of the general public ALWAYS wanting to downplay these storms. I expect that for the average joe but not from someone on here.

 

Even if this weakens to a cat 2, the surge potential is absolutely massive. So is the flooding potential. 

 

This isn’t a joke. It isn’t a time to sit there and criticize the media. I’d rather everyone be over agrresive if it means saving one life.

THIS!^  Read the 5:00PM NHC update Animal and maybe you'll start to understand the concern a bit more.

The storm surge and inland fresh water flooding are going to be somewhere between catastrophic and horrific. 

Sorry it's not the sexy type of cane some wanted.

Remember three weeks ago when the Atlantic was completely dead?

Would someone be so kind as to explain to me what I'm looking at here?   Layman's terms please

I happened across this just yesterday but didn't understand it's significance.

Thanks so much
