I wonder if we get a full blown landfall around Emerald Isle and not this hang just offshore thing. Florence is tracking a bit right today (and at decent speed) and would have to bend west more significantly to put the landfall down around ILM.

I didn't say anything about credientials, but you are as uneducated about tropical meteorology as you can get. Lets put it this way, Sandy was a cat 1 when it made landfall into NJ, I guess it was no big deal because it was a cat 1 right?

lol @ "credientials"

Media bashing in the main thread is pissing me off. Get it out of the main thread. Also, network media has to stop their regularly scheduled opinionated bull**** for a few days to actually grab the attention of the majority of desensitized Americans, who don't respond or react to anything unless they're drowning in an ocean of hyperbole anyway. You think presenting facts is going to get some fatass off their couch, much less out of their surge-prone house? "Disclaimer: There's a chance this hurricane could rapidly weaken or miss your location entirely." Give it a bloody rest. They're mostly not scientific meteorologists and they're also not perfect. They're media people interpreting information they are given while presenting that dangerous threat to the viewer.

 

Regardless if the hurricane collapses into butterfly wings, the forecast was presented to them by official agencies as a devestating event based on evidence at the time of forecast. They reported it the best way they can. If you don't like it, just give it a week and you can go back to the opinionated hyperbole-filled political segments people seem to live for these days.

I love watching people bash the media when in fact this will be an awful storm.  Now some dummies on the main thread walking back their bashing as the IR looks better.  Some people never learn.  “More reading, less posting” is the old saying and it still applies today

For some reason I found this to be funny. I didn't once think that Florence was going to make landfall as a CAT4/5 however I agreed with the severity outlined from the water impact it will have. The only time I'll ever believe that a CAT4+ is going to make landfall on the US mainland is if its literally 2-3 hours away from landfall at said intensity. How it stalls will determine if its the costliest hurricane in SE history.

Sometimes when I hear someone bashing meteorologists for whatever indiscriminate reason for inaccuracies of weather predictions I’ll respond, “oh yeah, I forgot how easy it is to predict the future.”

Keep in mind that some people prefer not having their lives washed away or their loved ones killed. It's generally considered good if a natural disaster doesn't happen.

this is going to be the fake news hurricane that breaks the camel's back.  think millions are going to keep evacuating absurdly early going forward?  

 

or maybe i'm pissed my flight was cancelled because nobody ever really knows where these things are going, and yet we get the same thing we get every single year.  WORST HURRICANE EVER COMING!!!  

 

sunny and 10 mph winds and we can't fly because foxnews and cnn scared everybody.  

 

you mean a cat 5 isn't going to hit the Carolinas afterall?  no ****ing way...

Sorry your flight was canceled.  Perhaps you should bring that up with the countless Americans that are about to lose property or the ones that will lose a loved one during this storm.

have a nice day

I don't think some of you understand the impact from such a large wind field, again, see Sandy. 

And the rainfall and flooding will be enough to keep everyone's attention. At the end of the day, nobody will remember that a narrow area of beach didn't receive cat 4 winds, which would have happened with a tight core system.
