Hurricane Season 2019
« on: August 29, 2019, 09:58:18 PM »
Seems like with noteworthy weather every few months, we could just use a general 'weather' thread.

Today's Event: Hurricane Dorian.  Currently forming in the Caribbean with a gnarly trajectory





And here's the absolute best model:

... in war the screams are loud and harsh and in peace the wail is so drawn-out we tell ourselves we hear nothing.

I read today that the depicted cone, "the cone of uncertainty," is a 60–65% probability region for the center of the storm.  So there is a 35–40% probability that the center of the storm will be outside the cone.  And that's just the center of the storm.  Given the diameter of a hurricane, the region that is at risk has got to be at least four times as wide as the cone.

In general think generic catch all threads are a bad idea and dislike them. After they grow a little it makes looking for things so much harder. I like each thread being about a specific thing and not "all weather, forever". I don't see any befit to lumping them all together when there probably won't be much over lap anyways but having different threads for each storm/issue makes searching much easier.

Renamed to, "Hurricane Dorian."  Probably not enough interest/news for a general weather thread.

Hope any of you in the region are hunkered down and prepared!

FWIW, as somewhat of a weather geek, I would be interested in a general weather thread.

Don't say things like that! T.rump would do it.

Despite the fact that it's heading for North Carolina instead.

Okay, then why did T.rump just order 200,000 rolls of paper towels shipped to Wyoming?
