A couple of stories related to Hurricane Igor this morning... first.... did you see this image of Igor from the International Space Station? Now that's what I call a closeup!
Next, a couple of computer forecast models are saying that Igor will loop around and could hit Bermuda a second time!
While hurricanes doing loops are is not unheard of, these are only two of about 60 models that the government is running on the storm, and the other 58 (ok, 57 if you count that third one going east) say he's bound for the north Atlantic and will probably run aground at Greenland. See?
Second, the National Weather Service in San Juan, Puerto Rico says that the flooding in the Virgin Islands over the weekend was due to Igor drawing moisture northward. If you look at a Water Vapor image, you can kind of see this happening. UPDATE: Even more so you can see Igor -- and Julia -- streaming the moisture northward on this Precipitable Water Loop (still shot below, thanks Scott L.)
Cory Pesaturo tells me that Igor had the second-highest 1-2 hour wind jump during his rapid intensification (of course we don't have data in the 1-2 hour increments for older storms). He also had the fourth highest 12- and 24-hour wind jump.
And finally, check out the photos from my Facebook Friend Devin T., who was at Bermuda when Igor hit:
The Atlantic hurricane season of 1996 was a blockbuster season for southeast North Carolina. Could that repeat this season?
Scientifics Direct (formerly Edmund Scientific) has a sea of scientific devices and gadgets in their store, that I could only dream of as a kid!
The worst flooding this week was in Louisiana, but the unnamed low-pressure system dropped 10 inches of rain in eight states.
Here in Pennsylvania, after experiencing months with almost no rainfall and a complete lack of typical thunderstorm activity, the last 10 days have brought daily rainfall and storms.
What may go down in the record books as "The Great Flood of 2016" is now upon us. Over 30 inches of rain has fallen and thousands have been rescued from the floods.
I'm pleased to announce that the 4K version of the 360fly camera has arrived! Unboxing, in-car review, and time-lapse sample videos in this blog.
