    It doesn’t count because Trump wasn’t guiding it there.

    It does not count because it does not fit the current climate change model.

      And it didn’t really happen. The Russians planted the fake news in the 1944 newspaper to sew the seed of doubts and confuse Americans in 2018.

      Oh yeah, he can be trusted.

      How on Earth did this verifiable idiot win a MacArthur Fellowship?

      It’s clear that the governments that can’t ensure a reliable supply of water are the same ones that can’t ensure a reliable supply of toilet paper.

    74 years ago a nearly identical hurricane threatened nearly the same area.
    Tony you are the master of archive searches!
    Did the storm 74 years ago live up to the predictions or did it fizzle out?
    What do the archives say of the damage?
    I am hoping this current storm fizzles.

    From the latest observations, Florence appears to be weakening somewhat and will probably be CAT 2 (maybe even CAT 1) when it hits the coast. No one near the coast should let their guard down, but I’m hopeful that the impact will be less than what was expected just a few days ago.

    • Steven Fraser says:

      Still some pretty firm winds on the North side as it approaches land, and then slows down its forward motion.

      Up the coast from the eye will have 80-115mph winds directly onshore for a number of hours.

      Then, it makes landfall (Center of the Eye ‘feet dry’) and as that happens the ‘oomph’ diminishes rapidly. The slowness of the forward motion as landfall approaches favors weakening prior to landfall.

      Current GFS model has this storm taking a track to the North, right over Knoxville TN, and then and meeting up with low pressure system from the Northern Plains, and dumping plenty of water on Northern Ohio and Western NY. The combined storm moves up the St. Laurence, dropping goodly amounts of rain, and then becomes part of a coastal system stretching almost from Florida to Maine, and then rapidly out-to-sea.

      Pretty impressive. All this plays out in the next 10 days. By the end of it dropping rain on Ireland.

    Just for the record, Florence started in colder than average water off the coast of Africa. The hurricane intensified through this colder than average water and past 65W where it entered warmer than average water. As the ocean water became warmer AND more warmer than average…Florence lost intensity…winds dropped from 130/140 to 110. Now it is uncertain if it will reorganize or meander into NC as a Cat 2 storm.

    Hurricane development is clearly more complex than warmer water = more intensity. Florence has completely disproved the theory that warmer than average water causes more intense hurricanes. Florence should be argument #3 vis a vis extreme weather and climate change (behind the ACE trends and IPCC findings). Florence appears to completely debunk the entire thesis.

    • Psalmon says:

      Before warmer and warmer than average water…

    • arn says:

      It would be great if the “warmer water=more intensive”
      would be wrong as the lack of hurricanes of the past seasons would
      then have lead to more potential “hurricane energy” that would unleash in the future.

      Anyways,it does not matter how strong the hurricane is as MSM was hit so hard by the hurricane hiatus that they are greatful for every small hurricane that appears and will talk it into a national catastrophy on a biblical scale to blame it on Trump and promote carbon tax.

      Yesterday i read a comment on youtube about the current hurricane and a stupid chick literally wrote that she hopes millions would day so that they realise how real and bad AGW / co2 is.
      This people are not just full of selfhatred but completely insane and begging for catastrophies so satisfie their emotions.

    Sept 14, 1944
    Cherry point was a USMC pilot and ground crew training facility. It also had US Army Air Force and Navy antisubmarine/patrol squadrons.

    The USMC 1st Division landed on Peleliu. One of the toughest and costliest battles of WW II ensued. Eventually they had to call in Army units to reinforce the Marines. It was not the legendary Chesty Puller’s finest hour as he ordered his 1st Marine Regiment into repeated frontal assaults against the skillfully dug in Japanese.

    Two coast guard cutters floundered in the hurricane with a loss of 47 men.

    Cherry point has had a whole lot of air delivered ordinance has dropped on the ranges of Cherry point over the years. Air units from all of the services use it’s ranges. And a whole lot of demolitions has also been blown there. That is where the most advanced techniques in demolitions are taught to certain service members, special operators, and CIA operators. And I don’t know about now, but at one time it was also the place where National Security Officers and others that could be subject to vehicular ambushes learned techniques to avoid or get out of the situations.

    Bottom line. A whole lot of stuff has and still does go on there.

    Conditions required for tropical systems to form: 1. An existing low to mid level low pressure area, 2. Ocean water temperatures at or above 77F/25C at a sufficient depth, 3. High pressure aloft in the upper atmosphere, and 4. Little to no vertical wind shear, that is, little to no change in wind speed and/or direction as you ascend from the surface. Once the system gets going sufficiently, it will make its own weather. All it takes to prevent or limit development or induce dissipation, is for one or more of the conditional thresholds to get too far away from optimum, particularly when the minimum threshold is not met.
