RE: Here We Go Again - Hurricane Michael




This the the 5-day wind speed forecast from the NHC as of 5 PM today. The Outer Banks is squarely in the 70 - 80% chance of tropical force winds for sometime Thursday. Not what I was expecting at all, since it will be travelling over land before it arrives.




RE: Here We Go Again - Hurricane Michael




Hate to see that Will. This has been more than a difficult year for all of North Carolina.

I just hope that the speed of the system will negate serious flooding, and lessen the overall wind damage.


RE: Here We Go Again - Hurricane Michael




Sigh. Southern NC doesn't need any more rain. I'm not really worried about the wind (that chart doesn't look right at all), but the rain will set back some recovery efforts. The one good thing is it looks to be fast moving.

We are down in orange beach, al for vacation this week. 4 miles from the al/Florida border. Winds and surf were up today. Interested to see what tomorrow holds. Fortunately we are on the west side of the storm, so no evacuations here.


RE: Here We Go Again - Hurricane Michael




Turned on the Weather Channel twice this morning. Turned it off after 10 seconds each time. Just can't listen to "O.k. like" Abrams and "Alright" Cantore.

I'll turn it on later when those two Bozos are off the air.


RE: Here We Go Again - Hurricane Michael




Looking a bit better fro us and not much rain predicted here.

Tracking a bit more north

SE NC is so saturated that it won’t take much wind to down more trees. Similar setup to Bertha and Fran for Wilmington...

And with wind direction 180 out from Florence. Preparing for another drive souf to help our friends.
And the westerly wont do any favors for RWS.
All in all, hopefully no worse than tearing off a bandaid, brief pain, no real hurt. Hopefully.

Abrams: "Let me look at the radar on my phone, o.k.?"

I need you to tell me what's on your phone?

Cantore: "Oh, my gosh! Tell me about it, bro!"

Does he have any idea how he sounds?

I'm listening to it at work and damn near spit water all over my keyboard. Damn near a Cat 5 at landfall...these guys are insane.

Isn't there a mandatory retirement age for weather forecasters? smiley with shades


RE: Here We Go Again - Hurricane Michael




They retire when their ratings decline and not a day sooner.

Remember Jeanetta Jones?

Just remember... that is Nor'easter type of wind. So not hurricane winds IF it keeps as forecasted.

Traveling along at 20-25 mph, it will at least blow past fast.

Look for some soundside flooding in the tri-villages and Avon as mentioned above..

It was much worse than expected. We had wind gusts in Nags Head in the mid to upper 60's for hours. The sound side is a battlefield much like Irene but not as bad. Many homes are still without power. The water on the sound reached five to six houses back from the sound in some places. They now call Michael a supersubtropical storm event.


RE: Here We Go Again - Hurricane Michael




Bobby, thanks for the update. I feel so badly for all that have born the brunt of the surprising flooding. This morning in downtown Manteo, I spoke to a bunch of people...and learned more about the status of various stores, the Maritime Museum and restaurants...and the many cars that were parked downtown - and under the condos... The Lost Colony Brewery lucked out being up high enough that they weren't impacted.

Thank goodness Michael moved out fast and we've got some good weather now to help with drying things out.

P.S. And thanks, also, for posting that article in the Pilot you posted on the other thread about Power Out.

Super subtropical pain in the butt!!!! My poor hubby works for the power company here in VA and he's been on mandatory 16 hour shifts since Thursday night. I can't even imagine what other parts of the country are going through....awful.
