    Yes, it has been weird. BBC are catching up now with it as the main story on their website but maybe there was a bit of 'storm fatigue' after the coverage of Florence. Also, there was such a short period in the lead up, Florence was well covered 7 days out? However, looking at the images from overnight, I suspect there may well be more coverage in the days to come?!

    That is absolutely insane!

    Hurricane Michael

    Just home from work and catching up. Unbelievable how powerful Michael became before coming ashore, with early indications showing as the third most powerful storm to make US landfall. Some incredible footage on the ABC live feed, particularly from around 7.00pm (you can drag the timeline back) when the roof came off the hotel they were filming from. Sobering stuff!

    Wind speeds still increasing, still a Cat 2 though John Dissauer‏Verified account @johndissauer 4m4 minutes agoore Hurricane Hunter recon flight just detected winds of 115 mph at 9,500ft in #HurricaneMichael. Adjusted to the surface it is a 97 mph wind. #INwx #FLwx #ALwx

    No doubt this is a fast moving event. Reported that wave heights 'will exceed 40 foot' in the GoM, this could be a big deal!?

    Hurricane Florence

    Yes, just spotted that. Shame indeed!

    Hurricane Florence

    You're right, this is a great webcam. Things are certainly ramping up now

    Hurricane Florence

    The overnight NHC update confirms significant weakening of Florence. Still a dangerous storm no doubt and needs to be respected, but no longer 'Storm of the Century' material. Looks like she'll be around Cat 2 At landfall. Although the winds are down, rainfall totals and storm surge are still going to be the biggest issues, especially if the storm stalls which seems to be the favoured option currently.

    According to CNN: South Carolina's entire 187-mile coastline is under mandatory evacuation beginning at 12:00 p.m. Tuesday

    Indeed, getting close to a Cat 5 on Wednesday. NHC most recent update is: INIT 09/2100Z 24.4N 57.0W 75 KT 85 MPH 12H 10/0600Z 24.6N 58.3W 90 KT 105 MPH 24H 10/1800Z 25.1N 60.4W 105 KT 120 MPH 36H 11/0600Z 25.9N 63.1W 115 KT 130 MPH 48H 11/1800Z 27.0N 66.2W 125 KT 145 MPH 72H 12/1800Z 30.3N 72.6W 130 KT 150 MPH 96H 13/1800Z 33.5N 77.5W 120 KT 140 MPH 120H 14/1800Z 35.0N 79.0W 60 KT 70 MPH...INLAND This is going to be newsworthy going into next weekend

    The GFS 6z makes landfall, bringing Florence ashore in mid North Carolina. Adjusted south west from the 0z

    Hurricane Florence

    Looks like the 12z GFS is going the same way. Doesn't quite make landfall, just sits off the coast of North Carolina for 24 hours plus, no doubt bringing massive rain totals? This is for next Friday afternoon

    Hurricane Florence

    Interesting last update from the NHC: Florence has undergone a dramatic structural evolution just within the past 6 hours or so. Looks like the period of dramatic intensification is just about underway with the NHC calling for a Major Category 4 storm from Tuesday until the end of the forecast period (day 5). Northern Florida to North Carolina appear to be the favoured areas for landfall. Definitely one to watch, if Florence develops in line with these forecasts she won't be far from a Cat 5?
  14. It's developing into a very impressive system. Not a huge amount of electrical activity within it ........ yet!
  15. Not sure but it's certainly undergoing some pretty impressive expansion on the last few radar frames!?
