Hurricane Season Is On Steroids Right Now

Good afternoon bloggers,

Hurricane Season is getting wild and a bit out of control right now. Forecasting Hurricane Florence will likely drive many forecasters a bit crazy in the next few days.  Take a look at this:


Farther west there is a fifth system potentially developing:


I said fifth system because we must not forget the fourth one, near Hawaii with significant impacts likely.


Here are the late morning numbers, this is getting closer to a CAT 5 hurricane:


The models are all over the place on what may happen in the next few days.  This system will likely stall. The steering currents aloft are weakening rapidly by Thursday, and when the steering currents weaken this much, the hurricane is more likely to stall.  There is a chance it will then turn south.

Have a great day. We will go in-depth on 41Action News Tonight.

    ive heard before that when hurricanes come on land that they tend to backup the weather pattern across the country. Will Flo have a impact on our weather here?

    Gary, hope this is ok to mention.

    JL has 3 days of Full-on blogs about all things hurricane with a lot of interesting info.
    I don’t consider those blogs competition with the 2020 blog since he is honed in on the hurricanes, just like Gary.
    But he does have some interesting info especially in todays blog. Hurricane facts/info, not a hurricane forecast.
    There’s a graphic about how a hurricane acts when entering a mountainous area.

    According to the World Meteorological Organization, there’s a 70 % chance of an El Niño weather event developing by the end of the year.

    I’m not so sure global warming has much to do with the hurricane strength and intensity. I mean thinking yesterday I was looking at a map and seeing all these deltas, areas along the coast where the shore is eroded more in some spots either near river deltas and/or bay inlet type areas like Cape Hatteras and the barrier islands that the Cape is on, areas like the Florida Keys, areas like New Orleans and southern Louisana, and I got to thinking strong hurricanes have been probably happening for a very long time, and much of the land erosion and large scale areas where the land is how it is may part be topographical but part due to past intense hurricane strikes. In fact, grossly so to the point where only in modern times have we as humans actually cared enough to prevent beach erosion to storms because only in the past 150 years have humans started to really populate costal areas.
