So hurricane season finally kicks off, and with a biggie! 

The "stay off shore" eye could be dramatic - looking at the GFS, it could track much of the E coast of the US - if it stays just off shore like this, a stretch of hundreds of coastal miles could get hurricane winds, even major hurricane winds. 

My favorite chaser (every time I follow him I fear the next tweet will be to say he's dead, a chilling experience, can anyone relate?!) 

 

Can totally relate !

And here is the discussion from nhc

"A blend of these measurements yield to an initial intensity of 155 kt, making Dorian the strongest hurricane on record in the northwestern Bahamas."

Forecast my nhc. A small 30 miles from a Florida hit. But will probably adjust west imo.

Wiki....

Early on September 6, Irma peaked with 1-minute sustained winds of 180 mph (285 km/h) and a minimum pressure of 914 hPa (27.0 inHg). Irma was the second-most intense tropical cyclone worldwide in 2017 in terms of barometric pressure, and the strongest worldwide in 2017 in terms of wind speed.

I have been watching this hurricane for a few days.  A lot of people I think underestimated what she was capable of. ive just seen a twitter post from the National Hurricane Centre  saying that the wind speed is now up tp 180 with gusts of 200mph they are telling people to seek cover. whilst writing this they are telling people that a storm surge of 18-23 will hit in the next few hours and seek elevated shelter. I feel so incredibly worried for all of those people in its path. im sitting here in my sunny garden with a slight breeze and they are going through this devastation. mother nature can be so cruel.

Another pass pressure 910-911mb and unflagged winds of 176kts 

That's 202mph!  This is going to be an incredibly serious situation unfolding over the next few days.

A link to the NOAA buoy at settlement point on Grand Bahama,

https://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.php?station=spgf1

I believe this is a new station, as i was following the old one for hurricane Matthew in 2016 until it was wiped out -

(last recordings for matthew showed >34m/s winds  https://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/view_text_file.php?filename=spgf1c2016.txt.gz&dir=data/historical/cwind/

and the report had a wind gust of 91mph https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/data/tcr/AL142016_Matthew.pdf)

If the track for Dorian is correct, they'll gonna have to rebuild it again!

tidy up so as not to confuse with current conditions for Dorian

Cat 5 winds well over 150kts now recorded in the normally weak se quad......up to 8 miles from the eye.

In other words cat 5 winds probably over an 18-20 diametre area.

I’ve attached some images from a video on snapchat from Marsh Harbour about 30 mins ago. 

Note one of them has about 5 guys out walking. The footage was taken from people driving around in a car. 

Very scary

The people walking may have decided to seek alternative shelter?

My daughter's boyfriends parents are  supposed to be going on a cruise round the Bahamas starting Friday. I don't think that will be happening now but they think that it will just re-route. They fly to Miami on Thursday which should be South of any major impact I presume. Was watching CNN there which had reports from the Bahamas.
