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:
Social media is abuzz with complaints that the blizzard didn't happen in their back yards, but the storm was a record in Massachusetts.
If you haven't heard, there's a blizzard about to form. Here's what you need to know, and how it compares to history.
The cold outbreak of Jan. 21, 1985, was here. Temperatures had fallen below zero across the Deep South and were in the single digits on the Carolina and Gulf coasts.
Was 2014 the hottest year ever on Earth? Probably not, and I outline reasons why I don't believe the global warming numbers.
Having built the AccuCam Network last year, I thought this year I'd try to move it up to another level in 2015.
The latest storm to attack the United Kingdom and Ireland has left some impressive stats, photos and videos behind.
