It remains to be seen if it exceeds 185 mph. That is a real tough thing to do. I wouldn't be surprised to see the start of an eyewall replacement cycle soon which would weaken the storm at least temporarily. It remains to be seen what it looks like as it goes by the islands. It could experience some disruption as nears Hispaniola and then goes near/over Cuba. Of course the water between Cuba and FL is essentially jet fuel for hurricanes.

Models show the wind speeds decreasing down in the 140s when it gets towards Cuba and Florida. It's pretty uncommon to sustain wind speeds in the 180s when it encounters land, even if it's just islands and not a huge continent.

Interested in this storm for NC for the data and experience, but not looking forward to it because of our horses, pecan farm and beach property.

There's a few models that track it over NC, looking like a Florida initial hit at least though.

getting your "beach property" hit by a hurricane is like the best thing that could happen to you.

Euro and GFS finally came into somewhat of agreement overnight it appears. They are going with a near miss on east coast of florida and landfall near Charleston, SC. Will now have to watch if they become consistent with that.

What's the best way to transport/keep frozen...frozen breastmilk? I think my wife would trade our house being blown away as long as we didn't lose 3+ months of breastmilk.

what's wrong with coolers?

if you don't like coolers get a 12v fridge/freezer

RIP the virgin islands.

Why does it take these models so long to run?

Seems like the early GFS models are looking to be the correct ones.

My initial thought was that we'd try to store it in a way to keep it frozen in Charleston while we jetted. But now I'm thinking we'll take it with us in a cooler and take the mini-freezer with us and just plug it in wherever we stop (sis-in-law in Columbia or sister in Raleigh).

Thats 3 runs in a row from GFS into Charleston area close enough to coast though a few miles could put it inland over florida and severely weaken it at least.

More like Savannah, but close enough. Realistically, we're still 2 days away from having any confidence about how this storm is going to turn.

Matthew sat down and churned up the Atlantic. what are the models saying as far as time it's going to affect the areas it hits? Like significant rainfall. Matthew was only a Cat 1.

It shouldn't linger. Rainfall totals will likely be under 12 inches except for the coastal location where the eye comes ashore.

Take this image as a example of the potential rain impact. This forecast will change in location, but the magnitudes will be about right.

Euro is a bit west from GFS would have it closer to coastline or over it for a bit may weaken it some if thats the case. Still looks like GA/SC border though.

what are the models showing for Jose? Looks like it is right on Irma's heels...

I suspect that Jose will be a fish storm for the most part. Model guidance is all over the place however. The majority over models have it threaten the leeward islands and then turn north out to sea and east of Bermuda.

Yeah I havent paid much attention to Jose yet but seems like it kinda meanders around out there for a while then heads OTS currently.

Jbrick. Put frozen breastmilk in a quart bag then put that bag into a gallon bag of water. Freeze it. That will give you extra protection.

Feel a little better after this morning's forecast (knock on wood). If Florida can slow it down and it hits Charleston as a Cat 1...then we'll stick it out. If gets pushed further east and starts to ride the coast, then we'll head inland to Columbia. Hopefully we'll find out soon enough to be able to actually leave. We'll see..

Euro stuck with its up florida coast into Georgia thoughts overnight.

GFS is east with landfall somewhere in SC. One run had Myrtle Beach up through greensboro probably the following was Charleston up through Charlotte. I suspect models will continue to move back and forth between wilmington and south florida until the turn actually happens. Tough one to plan for thats for sure.

Here was the more concerning run for us overnight

If I had to guess based on the more recent models it looked like it was favoring a more western shift with Raleigh spared from a direct hit like the model above.

Yeah monday night into Tuesday it would be heavy rain and breezy obviously the more north it tracks the more wind we will see. Hopefully it doesnt stick around too long so flooding doesnt become a major concern. Charlotte would be a fair amount nastier I'd imagine.

We've definitely seen damage in Charlotte and west before both from flooding (see Frances and Ivan in WNC) as well as that combo of a soaking rain and gusty winds that seems to make big trees conveniently fall on the nearest power line (see every tropical system to blow through Charlotte since forever).


Kinda small potatos compared to everything in Irma's path right now though.

My Corpus Christi, TX house survived Harvey. Will my Jacksonville, FL house survive Irma!??! I have way less equity in the Jax house, and it's significantly farther from the water, and not in a flood zone... but we'll see!
