Thread: Hurricane Michael

  1. #1

    Hurricane Michael

    Didn't see a post and was surprised given it is looking to affect us in a couple of days.

    This thing turned into a beast in no time due to all the warm water in the Gulf. Currently standing at a Cat 4 with sustained winds at 145mph. May actually get a bit stronger before landfall.

    Latest path projection shows it passing through the VA coastline well south of MD but still providing us with rain (3+") and gusts into the 50's). By itself, this isn't too bad but I believe tomorrow should give us a good bit of rain due to a cold front (~1.5-2.0"). And at least at my house (PF), the ground still isn't back to bone dry summer conditions following all that rain. Might make for an interesting Friday is nothing else. The commute could be a mess because it seems no one can handle anything but a dry road in these parts.

    It wouldn't take much of a shift to the left for things to get REAL interesting around here. I get most of my information from Justinweather.com along with the NHC site. I know some of you have your own trusted sources so I am curious what some of the more (historically) accurate sources have been saying specific to our area.
