Hurricane Dorian Banter Thread

Recommended Posts

I wonder where the weather channel buys their outdoor gear. They have the lightest weight material that flaps in the lightest breeze. Mike Seidel was literally standing in the ocean in a 18 mph breeze and he made it look like he was in a real storm.

I come back to the boards and now I’m laughing my kibble and bits off at the main thread. All the friction has stopped the hurricane.
And the wobbles

I remember a similar intensity hurricane that everybody from these boards to the nhc themselves said would survive intact near peak intensity after heading inland along the cuban coast. A couple truths have not been learned by many - land and cooler water - damages hurricanes. Dorian’s stall is murdering it with the island interaction but more importantly the upwelling cooler water. I think we will he looking at a cat 1 by noon tomorrow.

Whenever I think about global warming and get despondent I am cheered by the fact GOES-16 exists and will be bringing us HD footage of our short and brutal lives over the next couple decades.

Can you see a food riot from space?  Excited to find out.

If I had to guess - and I’m no pro, just a guy with a degree who went on to do other things - I bet this storm under performs in the Bahamas bc of interference with the upper air low and poor outflow to the north, and then as it nears the coast and crosses the Gulf Stream it gets its shit together and landfalls as a strong 2 / weak 3.  Dry ambient airmass and warm SSTs should keep it small, though.

If I could turn back time.... do do do do do

Fish are friends not food. Save the fish. Kill the hurricane. Nuke it. 

I'm all in! Nothing like a big old fish fry with radioactive entertainment!

I hope a hurricane permanently stalls off the coast so we can hallucinate on which way it's moving 365 days a year.

This was mixed in the replies. CAPS is the primary school he was at. Sounds encouraging.

There are mixed reports that he actually wasn't at the school.

I may have been off by a few hours as the weakening continues and is only at 110 now on a steady march down in intensity(incredible considering how recent we were looking at a 185 mph behemoth) but the undeniable fact is that this thing had wound down quicker than most anticipated because it sat and spun over cool waters caused by itself. It really looks beat up right now. Sometimes we ignore the fundamentals with these storms -ie exceptional oceanic warmth is required to maintain intensity. Let’s see if it really has begun the move north and if it can regain any intensity over the gulf stream.
