  1. We had a couple of great storms in May but it's been absolutely dead since then. Hardly had any rain either. Still hoping to see some good night storms in Cuba, not during the day, mind.
  2. Where was it and why didn't you like it?
  3. I honestly don't know how anyone could be disappointed with the Maldives. It is paradise. I get if you're after an active holiday you would find it disappointing but I don't think the Maldives hides that it's a complete chill out destination apart from some diving and sailing.
  4. So lovely to have the sun back today. Really dreading winter.

    Typhoon mangkhut

    It's hard to imagine a highly developed sky scraper city with hurricane winds.

    I wonder if he'll reform in the gulf.

    Hurricane Florence

    I know it's early days but I'm surprised I've seen no deaths reported yet. Of course it would be wonderful of everyone is OK but it's inevitable some won't make it.

    Trying to find some decent webcams for Martinique, Guadeloupe or St Lucia.

    Hurricane Florence

    Would it look similar to a thunderstorm approaching? Clearly see the anvil in the distance surrounded by blue sky that moves in to engulf the area?

    Swells are already showing but winds are due about midday tomorrow our time, give or take.

    Hurricane Florence

    NHC are saying she'll likely be cat 3 before landfall.

    Technically its not. It just means no ones coming to help you if you call 911.

    Azael, so' s my friend. They are going but all their neighbours just aren't bothered at all. Considering how far Bermuda is from this system, the wind is certainly picking up. http://www.portbermudawebcam.com There are so many cameras along the coast, you should see swells picking up very soon.

    What kind of drop in pressure is considered normal and what is considered rapid in mb/hour?

    She and her husband are prepped. They are in a flood risk zone at the best of times and have done all they can but the vibe theyre getting from the neighbours is one of complacency. They haven't been given evacuation orders yet, but will go if they do so.

    Unless there's some sharp miracle turn or weakening this is looking very very bad for the East Coast. I have a friend in both Virginia and North Carolina and they say the attitude towards it is still very much like it'll be a tropical storm and it's no biggie.

    Is there a really easy way to understand the skew-t? I've read guides but it's still going above my head.

    Should be able to see her coming in here. Residents already reporting swell. Not sure how accurate that is. https://www.visitob.com/outer-banks-webcams/

    Recon just completed flight around Flo. Readout can be found on Tropical Tidbits.

    I mean Katrina was a Cat 3 when she hit. Granted New Orleans is below sea level and levees failed but SC, NC and Virginia have a lot of low lying areas and island communities.

    Hurricane Florence

    At the rate this is going this could be the most devastating storm mainland USA has seen since Katrina.

    Hurricane Florence

    She's going South of Bermuda. May see a little more rain and wind than normal but nothing to worry about.
  23. That really puts into perspective how much of a beast Eight is.
  24. And 93L becomes Eight. 92L will become Nine. Out of order.
