Ahh, this thread just wouldn't be complete without political nonsense.

That altered cone is hilarious though.

Laughing at a moron shouldn't be political.  The problem is that politics has neutered these people's ability to think.

The wild speculation around the office is better analysis. He sure does know how to use the least amount of info to draw the most ambitious conclusions.

It is just part of a pattern with Trump.  He is an oversensitive baby who has an extraordinarily hard time handling criticism.  We have known for a long time that Alabama was out of the game.  Just get your info right to begin with and then the NWS wouldn't have had to come out and correct you, etc.

@StantonParkHoya Sry, My bad before looking @ Radar.. You are in fact CORRECT.. Dry Air along (and a bit West) of Highway 17..

Looks (almost) like a I-85 Snowstorm!  ;) 

 

You can pretty much be certain that those are extinct. They will not be missed. I remember the days when I would get so pissed due to the suppression.

937mb is rivaling Sandy. I would take care around the property and make sure your trees are in order if you are a home owner.

Unintentional good advice :pimp:

I'm super excited for the annual finger-wagging "How can you hope for destruction?" bitchfest that seems to finally be brewing in the main thread.

The thing I remember most about Sandy is the downed trees. We lucked out because they were half-defoliated because it was late October.

Sandy took out the remaining 4 street trees that survived after Irene took out 6 others on that street the year before.

I believe cross-referencing posts from another forum is against the rules. Just take care guys. Don't end up with the weenie tag or worse.

:facepalm:

That’s probably not why you’re tagged, lil homie.

Because everyone knows that Dvorak is the best intensity estimation method out there, firmly beating recon aircraft in every metric.

um actually that means it's even stronger than a major because dvorak underestimates atlantic basin cyclones due to tropopause heights

the point of my post is that dvorak blows and should only be used if there are literally no better alternatives

I agree with you 10000%. Although I do like its eye temp enhancement.

I've also been seeing posts on twitter talking about how strong Haiyan must be compared to Dorian at peak intensity because of how their dvorak presentation was different, so I have accumulated a bit of salt that I had to let out in a blaze of sarcasm.
