I had asked, in the previous post, Daughter C & The J-Man, Miss M. if you’re reading this, how about telling us what’s going on in your part of the world? Daughter C delivers. Miss M is dealing with some non-hurricane related water issues.
Aren’t you glad I did the Radar Scope tutorial earlier? There are currently 14 warnings from NWS Morehead. All are flash floods. I know 5″ doesn’t sound like that much. But it is Down East Carolina. Perspective: Dorian has picked up speed– up to 10 mph now. That’s a good thing. Get the hell out
Eight miles per hour. To update you, there have been a couple of tornado sightings down around Wilmington, NC. Now I see there’s a warning just south of Kinston, NC.
A Weatherflow site at Calibogue Sound, Georgia, recently measured sustained winds of 37 mph (63 km/h) and a gust to 49 mph (79 km/h). An observation at Sapelo Island, Georgia, recently measured sustained winds of 35 mph (56 km/h) and a gust to 48 mph (77 km/h). It’s going to rain a lot on Miss
Pretty funny and not too far off.
and I have no computer models. But I do have eyes. At the time I snapped this screen shot, 1:14pm yesterday, the conventional wisdom was that the storm would track along US49 across Jackson before it entered the ArkLaMiss delta region– roughly the line I’ve drawn on the map. (I posted a shot of tropical

The burn ban is statewide. “They” are forecasting rain beginning Sunday (40%). I imagine it will depend on what Patricia does. Stay tuned. You know how I like to talk about the weather– and the utter ineptitude of certain weather forecasting entities. [cough cough dot gov cough cough] Speaking of which, did you see what’s
ten years ago. We were sitting outside in The Shack, a.k.a. The Synaptic Jct., at the Compound– our home in Cincinnati– with the usual Sunday Supper Crew. Mr. Big Food and I had been tracking the storm. It had been upgraded to a Cat 5 with winds of 175mph. Having lived in hurricane country, and
Remember Hurricane Katrina? It happened a long time ago. Ancient history. Everything’s back to normal by now. Not hardly.
Pier closed We knew this. We just wanted to see it for ourselves. It’s a shame, too. It was a very nice pier and the fishing was good. The lady I talked with a while back at the Hancock Co. Sheriff’s Office blamed it on the Feds. It shouldn’t take a year to re-open a pier
However, after Sandy crosses Jamaica and Cuba, things get really interesting — and dangerous — because the atmospheric setup is uniquely conducive for Sandy to become a bizarre and, possibly, extremely destructive hybrid storm, injecting its tropical moisture, warm core, and low barometric pressure into a dynamic atmospheric situation involving a diving upper-level trough, driven
Today we remember Hurricane Floyd. Floyd precipitated the “Flood of the Century” in Eastern North Carolina. Wikipedia has a skinny but accurate entry on Floyd, its record-breaking rainfall, and subsequent flooding. Every river basin in Eastern North Carolina exceeded its 500 year flood level! East Carolina University has a nice site about Floyd, much Greenville
“The stench is overwhelming,” Waveland Mayor David Garcia said. “They can blow up like a basketball and explode,” he said. “They” are dead nutria which drowned in the Louisiana gulf marshes during Hurricane Issac and are now washing up on the Mississippi gulf coast. Officials estimate there are at least 16,000. I heard on Mississippi
Note to self: Light from behind subjects = bad photo It’s raining. A few semi-random thoughts. #1 In Picayune, Mississippi Gregory Parker has died. The Weather Channel reports he was in his car when a tree fell on it. Folks at TWC then go on to lecture: Stay inside! Don’t go out, you don’t have

I bought two more yesterday. $4.63 to the children; $0.32 to the state I love The Palmer Home Thrift Store where every penny I spend except those that go to the Sovereign State of Mississippi goes to The Palmer Home for Children in Columbus, Mississippi.

UPDATE: Second best commercial ever (next to the September 11th superbowl ad from Bud). Weather, not Climate … as of today it has been 2,226 days since the last major hurricane (Category 3 or higher) hit the US mainland. Unless a big hurricane hits this winter, it means we are on track to break a
