So who is going to battered by hurricane Irma?
« on: September 08, 2017, 11:58:12 PM »
Dear WeatherCat extreme weather watchers,

Hurricane Irma has definitely caught the attention of most of the country.  Given its current trajectory, at least one WeatherCatter seems posed to get an awful lot of rain.  How are all you WeatherCatter dealing with the approach of Irma?

Definitely play it on the safe side!

Edouard

I am curious to a WeatherCatter report, too...

But as Edouard pointed out: Be safe when you are reporting!

Western Tennessee looking soggy. (Re: Battered by hurricane Irma?)

Dear Reinhard and WeatherCat observers of extreme weather,

Well it won't happen until late Tuesday into Wednesday, but if Irma continues on track, Western Tennessee looks to be getting an awful lot of rain.  That would seem to put a certain former driver of Airbus aircraft into a decidedly damp situation.  What say you X-Air?

Cheers, Edouard

I'm still watching the track. The winds aloft, as seen in Windy.com show the jet way north, so it won't be much help in pushing Irma, or what's left of her, eastward. Fortunately, we've had a bit over a week to dry out from Harvey, so the ditches, creeks, and rivers should be able to handle the rain. It will also help that it won't be in a position to draw liquid from the Gulf the way Harvey did.

Dear X-Air and WeatherCat inverse drought sufferers,

I'm still watching the track. The winds aloft, as seen in Windy.com show the jet way north, so it won't be much help in pushing Irma, or what's left of her, eastward. Fortunately, we've had a bit over a week to dry out from Harvey, so the ditches, creeks, and rivers should be able to handle the rain. It will also help that it won't be in a position to draw liquid from the Gulf the way Harvey did.

Glad to hear it!  The climate prediction center was suggesting that the South would be rather wet this Summer.  This time their outlooks were much more on the mark!

I hope neither your home nor your station will be any worse for Irma!

Cheers, Edouard

Irma is nothing more than a very disorganized area of rain, and mostly the low cloud variety. Light rain, mist and drizzle. Rain started about 2am, totals only .67 inches in 8 hours.

"She" actually seems to be still moving westward and back south. Looks like it wants to return to the Gulf! Lonely for it's home? [rolleyes2]

Jose remaining at sea for the moment (Re: Battered by hurricane Irma?)

Not any reason to lower one's vigilance just yet, but Jose seems to be making a sequence of circles in the open Atlantic.  At the moment, it is not showing any inclinations to start moving toward to the United States.

Cheers, Edouard

Anyone in harm's way of Jose? (Re: Battered by hurricane)

Dear WeatherCat extreme weather watchers,

After going around in a few circles, hurricane Jose at least threatened to plow up the Eastern seaboard.  The latest forecast for Jose's trajectory is further out to sea, but it is likely to bring some strong waves and heavy rains to the East coast of the United States.  Anybody in need of battening down the hatches?

In the coming attractions department, there is now tropical storms Lee and Maria.  Both are expected to take a similar trajectory to Irma and Harvey and head into the central Caribbean.  On the other side of the United States things are also active with tropical storms Norma and Otis.  It has definitely been a busy year for cyclonic disturbances.

Cheers, Edouard
