  1. In comparison to 0Z GFS run, the 6Z run has Jose farther offshore at our latitude, making landfall at Cape Cod with a low pressure in the 950s/960s. A second Atlantic hurricane makes landfall in the 940s in GA several days later. The 12Z GFS also has Jose brushing up against NJ and making landfall on Cape Cod. Again the low pressure is in the 960s. Within the following week, there's another hurricane traveling past Puerto Rico and Cuba.

    Ugh, this is what I feared. My MIL lives in an independent living retirement facility in Cape Coral and my BIL lives northeast of Tampa.
  3. Major Hurricane Irma

    Thanks Tom. Given that it's just one model run and it's a 970, your advice makes sense to me for sure.
  4. Major Hurricane Irma

    Although managers at the NE facilities of my employer rely upon corporate emergency planners, the local managers are already asking my opinion since I called the left hook and trough-phasing that happened with Sandy. I ordinarily tell them that it's too soon to say. But on the other hand, if the intensity of a major hurricane is a possibility, then early contingency planning becomes necessary for the R&D facility that I work at. There are a lot of high pressure gases and chemicals and experiments to be mindful of. So would you mind please telling me what intensity Irma has when it traverses the Delmarva on the ggem? Hopefully it's quite weakened? Thanks in advance for your model obs.

    Thanks...looks about right: a bit under an inch

    Anyone know how I can estimate rainfall IMBY? It rained nearly all day with long periods of moderately heavy rain, so I'm curious to see what it totalled locally.

    Let's just get this out of the way: I'm more of an indoorsman. I have gas-powered (okay, gas/oil mix) hedge trimmers that I desperately need to use in cutting down the size of some enormous bushes adjacent my AC unit. Over the winter, I left the gas in, and come spring, the darn thing simply wouldn't start. Is this because the gas I used has ethanol and ethanol solubilizes water (moisture from the air)? If that is not the reason, any suggestions on how I can fire this baby up? I really, really need to trim some shrubs.

    Best of luck Mitch. My SIL had it done and it worked really really well for her.
  15. All my Houston colleagues have been accounted for with all but one of them retaining power. One of them had to evacuate her home in Ft Bend County with only 10 minutes warning due to pump failure.
