The last time I saw the news this morning, projected track was off the Carolina coast. Wasn't it? Or has it moved closer to us?

I found this on weather.com:
Hurricane Earl - weather.com (http://www.weather.com/outlook/weather-news/news/articles/tropical-depression-seven-storm-hurricane-earl_2010-08-23)

It's going to hit the east coast because Earl doesn't have anywere else to go but along the land and up the coast.

You don't know much about hurricanes do you? It is a LOT bigger than the little dot on the weather map. Center of the cone of probability is roughly 250 miles Offshore of MD. The hurricane is currently 575 - 650 miles across, or big enough to cover the state of Florida. IF it moves down the center of the cone, which is unlikely, that places us under TS force conditions... If it comes west in the cone, which it has been creeping toward the last 3 days, we get more...

We are currently in the high20% low 30% TS wind band on the NHC site.

How can you not be aware of this? :confused

x2. Winds topping out around 40 kts..maybe..clocking from north to west, thus driving the water OUT of the bay and river.

Big woop..a northeaster slammed my shoreline far worse than that last winter.

Now you show me a hurricane or TS on a track that looks like Isabel's or Ernesto's did and I'll start getting my boxers in a wad then.

Beyond 12 hours this map is based on the hurricane center the center of the 'cone', following the exact predicted path.

Spun up? You said it wouldn't effect us at all (remotely?). If we get 25 MPH gusts and rain, it is effecting us isn't it? If it follows the projected path we WILL get rainbands. That means it WILL effect us.

You are aware that rainbands bring rain, gusty conditions, and quite often spawn tornadoes, yes?

Yeah we were without power or water for 3 weeks after Charley... LOL. Made a 'camping trip' out of it. Except for the lack of AC, it was almost nice what with the candles in the evening, seeing the night sky as God intended, not being distracted from the family by TV and such...

Dude people... you had big storms... big storms = downed trees = NO POWER!!! get over it.... it happenes :shrug:

it would have happened to us also if we were hit with those storms... the CRE gets hit hard everytime! :coffee: No matter how well they trim the trees away from the lines.

Those poor Linemen were working there butts off day and night to get power back on... and I will be one to say... you will not catch me down in THOSE manholes replacing cable.. (that goes for the time they were burning up and they had power outages for that) Those lines are old and cables fail after a while... they are only rated for about 30 or so years :shrug:

Isn't that crazy?? Like they think the generators are putting out air....

A family in my mom's subdivision had a close call running theirs in the garage, and then one of the kids left the door into the main house open... neigbors went over to ask for sugar and the family was all CO passed out in the living room. All were saved. :yay:

I loved the time after Isabel. Only problem was that my husband couldnt get his sleep machine hooked up to a battery, so we had to buy a generator. Other than that, it was really nice, and peaceful. All the neighbors helped each other out, and checked on each other, and we were on a farm too!!!

Huh. I wasn't aware that the FAA controlled hurricanes.

:yay:

No offense, but this thing is projected to swing withing 200 miles of our coast, and that's only the center of the track.... it's about 600 miles wide. All it will have to do is jiggle, and we could be seeing 60+ MPH winds instead of <25.

In fact, three days ago the NHC track put it 350 miles out. Now it's crept down to 200. I expect it to keep creeping.

If I'm wrong, I have extra soup and a sharp chain on the chainsaw. :bigwhoop:

Better that than on a tree on my head.

I'll wait and see what happens, and have a plan just in case. :yay:

Those people are driving me insane. I was glancing at the TV this morning..somebody was whining.."I was without electricity for 3 days with the ice storm (after the one in SOMD), then 2 days with Isabel..and then the storms this summer (when a bazillon HUGE trees were pulled up by their roots)...waaaah...waaahh...waaaahh.. At least most of them can still use their toilets and have running water.

I bet they weren't complaining when they got there electric bill and notice how low it was.

The 2 p.m. NOAA track shows it farther from us than the earlier map. Guess that means the front from the west is on track to push it out to sea. So far so good...:yay:

Huh. I wasn't aware that the FAA controlled hurricanes.

:yay:

No offense, but this thing is projected to swing withing 200 miles of our coast, and that's only the center of the track.... it's about 600 miles wide. All it will have to do is jiggle, and we could be seeing 60+ MPH winds instead of <25.

In fact, three days ago the NHC track put it 350 miles out. Now it's crept down to 200. I expect it to keep creeping.

If I'm wrong, I have extra soup and a sharp chain on the chainsaw. :bigwhoop:

Better that than on a tree on my head.

I'll wait and see what happens, and have a plan just in case. :yay:

Actually, it's about four hundred miles wide. As of the 2pm update, hurricane force winds extend 70 miles out from the center and tropical storm force winds extend up to 200 miles out from the center.

No effect? So if we see a single raindrop you can come back here and say "I told you so! The sky is falling!"

How about "no effect worthy of freaking out about."

Just a little tidbit... saw the weather report at lunchtime. There is a high pressure system moving in from Ohio/Illinois which is what they HOPE will keep the hurricane off the coast. However, that high pressure front has slowed down, which is why they keep changing the predicted track. If that front stalls (unlikely) the storm has a good chance of moving further west and inland.

And all these tards are like :blahblah the weatherman says :blahblah.

So nothing happens, it moves further off shore, fine, I have bottled water and canned food I won't use for a while. :shrug:

But if it does come inland..

I just would hate to see any of you begging for water because you were too lazy and trusting of the weather dude to go to the store and buy a couple gallons and a can of soup just in case you need it. :shrug:

Seriously, even the NHC has warnings up about not taking the maps as fact too far in advance.

I mean seriously, WTF??

This whole thread makes my brain sad.

After that, tracking maps show Earl turning northwest, putting the Outer Banks of North Carolina in its cone of uncertainty for late Thursday or early Friday. Earl is forecast to be a Category 3 storm by then -- still a major hurricane. A five-day tracking map show Earl could near Cape Cod, Massachusetts, as a Category 2 storm on Saturday.

Well, here's another prediction from CNN.

Hurricane Earl could take aim at Carolinas by Friday - CNN.com (http://www.cnn.com/2010/US/08/31/tropical.weather/index.html?hpt=T2)

Hi all you drama queens!! :razz:

We're not talking about a 600 mile wide hurricane. As NOAA said at 2pm, hurricane force winds extend 70 miles from the center and tropical storm force winds extend up to 200 miles from the center. So if Earl comes to within 200 miles of SoMD, we might see winds of 39-48mph which we aleady experince several time a year during regular storms.

Nobody really knows what it's gonna do, besides a bit west, then NW, then N, then NE.... Nobody knows the details really. All they can really do is guess.

They don't explain that on the weather here... they show the track on TV like it is a known fact. Down in FL they explain the uncertainty, what the cone means (like there is on a 60-70% probability the 'cane will even stay inside it, let alone in the center), etc.

They don't explain that on the weather here... they show the track on TV like it is a known fact. Down in FL they explain the uncertainty, what the cone means (like there is on a 60-70% probability the 'cane will even stay inside it, let alone in the center), etc.

Where is it gonna go? Nobody really knows for certain. :shrug:

My then-early-20's sons were both living on the Gulf coast when Katrina made her swoop (one right in New Orleans). They were so used to the "here comes a hurricane" in St Mary's County that they completely ignored all the warnings.

When I looked at the Weather Channel 2 days before landfall and saw it taking up the entire Gulf, I told them to get their butts out of there. Good thing they listened (for once!).

Hurricane
Written by Dan Peek, ©1977
Found on "Harbor"


Sailin' down the coast of Mexico
With a person I loved since long ago
Into a place nobody wants to go

Into a hurricane
Whoa, hurricane
Some'll be taken
Some'll remain

Heard people screamin' and the sky was torn
I looked around and the faces were so forlorn
No relief, only scorn

In a hurricane
In a hurricane
Some'll be taken
Some'll remain

Hurricane's just another name
For the torment in a man's soul
His mind is gone
And he starts to lose control

In a hurricane
Oh, the hurricane
Some'll be taken
Some'll remain

How long will the wind blow?
How long will the wind blow?
Everybody talks; nobody really knows
How long will the wind blow?
How long will the wind blow?
Shoo-ba-ree-ba, shoo-ba-ree-ba
Nobody knows

How long will the wind blow?
How long will the wind blow?
Everybody talks; nobody really knows
How long will the wind blow?
How long will the wind blow?
Shoo-ba-ree-ba, shoo-ba-ree-ba ...

It can however, as you know, knock out power and in low lying areas the rain can cause flooding. Heck we loose power from small thunderstorms around here. So what's the issue with being prepared for that?

You have to take what the 'weatherperson' says with a big grain of salt. In the end, they have no real idea what will really happen, just guesses based on fail-able computer models. We've been surprised more than a few times.

The other thing I've noticed over the years is that the weather reports very much downplay the possibility of poor weather when it's a holiday weekend. I've seen predictions of clear sunny weather right up to the day of the holiday, and then like magic, it's overcast and possibly raining. If people heard that it might rain, they might be tempted to stay home and not spend those $$, so the reports are a bit less than accurate.

Tropical Cyclone Condition Of Readiness 4 has now been set for NAS Patuxent River, Webster Field and NRC Solomons. This simply means, Hurricane Earl is within 72 hours of making a projected landfall close to our proximity. As of 1400, 31 August 2010, we were directed to set COR 3 which means the same, but places us in a 48 hour timeframe for projected landfall. Please make all preparations at home and in the workplace to ensure we suffer as few casualties as possible for the duration of this storm.

Actually, hurricanes ARE measured by how far out from the center the TS and hurricane force winds are, not by the cloud cover. With out the TS and hurricane level winds, it's not a named storm. The Sat images show the hurricane along with any other weather systems that are ajacent which makes it look larger than it really is. A lot of the cloud cover that's associated with a hurricane is just that, cloud cover, no rain no winds. Actually makes for some nice weather. Sort of the calm before the storm.

That's not 30%, it's 10-20.

I think there has been much guessing here... nobody really is for sure where Earl is going to track - so I hope everyone is watching closely, just in case.

------------------

TEAM STATEMENT # 1: For the vast majority of Earl's track through the Atlantic, the storm has generally remained on the far left side of the uncertainty cone as displayed in NHC graphics. Recent analysis of satellite imagery of Lat/Long points suggests Earl may be increasing forward speed more rapidly than is being shown. In addition, a faster forward motion reduces the storm's ability to make a sharper turn as projected. This also provides for earlier interaction with land, increasing the probability that frictional effects could permit the storm to hug the coast and thus direct stronger winds further inland.

TEAM STATEMENT # 2: It would appear based on developing evidence that our original Hypothesis A has the potential to verify more closely than Hypothesis B. Were this to occur, it would suggest that all three core factors (the high pressure system, cold front in the mid-west and upper level trough) are not moving in the direction or velocity as outlined in Hypothesis B. As a result, Earl tracks much closer to the coast. Interaction of the storm's "central dense overcast" over North Carolina results in frictional effects with land. This has the net effect of potentially driving more of the strongest winds, waves, surge and tidal flooding at least 25 miles further inland than expected by forecasters and emergency management officials.

That's strange because Tom Kierein was reporting this morning (on TV/4 this morning between 4:30 and 5 a.m.) that there would be rain around the DC (and us) area between dawn and noon tomorrow and that it would be somewhat windy but that tropical force winds were likely in the lower bay (not us, I realize).

There is one more off the coast of Africa that they are looking at now.. so far we have Earl, Fiona, Gaston and an unnamed one ...

The unnamed one is coming! :jameo:

It sounds so evil when you say it a certain way... :lmao:

Still no impact on us.

I'm having fun with this in hopes that the drama queens (Raven, ArkRescue & Turbo) will learn not to start panicking when a storm is still east of the leeward islands in the Caribbean. :lmao:

Eff you baja. I haven't posted anything on the storm for a couple days. :buttkiss:

Besides, all I said was to keep an eye on it, which you all have been doing anyway.

Suckit.

Methinks the true drama queen is the one trying to create the drama. Take off your turbin and let your pigtails down, queenie.

The bottom line is no one really knows the path of the hurricane but GOD. He is in the driver seat and has the world in a bottle with the stopper in his hand!
The hurricane can stall turn around and produce tornadoes so no one knows for sure.:coffee:

Dude. Freak out? I said it COULD come this way. And it damned well could have. That is freaking out?

I'm not the one who is obsessed and won't STFU about it. :lmao:

I also would have had no interest in turning the tables on you, I would have been too busy serving my community by passing out bottled water to people like you. :lmao:

Well OK, I suppose that sort of would be turning the tables, but only if I knew it was you when you begged for more soup.

Anyway, as soon as the track solidified a little, I stopped talking about it. Sheesh. People jump my ass for saying 'heads up'... I didn't post shelters, or tell people to board up their windows, or evacuate... my biggest concern was simple power outages and asserting that at the time, the damn thing could have shown up at your house to play flip cup. Big friggin' deal. You want to pick on some REAL drama queens, go here (http://forums.somd.com/dating-marriage/212478-honest-opinion-insight.html).

Gaston is a French name. No way it'll invade the US. It'll revert to a nice typically French depression before that happens, :killingme:
