You ready?

Quote
The brunt of the weather mayhem will be concentrated where the hurricane comes ashore early Tuesday, but there will be hundreds of miles of steady, strong and damaging winds and rain for the entire Eastern region for several days, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

The hurricane has killed at least 20 people in the Caribbean, and just left the Bahamas. It is expected to move north, just off the Eastern Seaboard.

As of Friday morning, federal forecasters were looking closer at the Delaware shore as the spot it will turn inland and merge with a wintry storm front. But there is a lot of room for error in the forecast and the storm could turn into shore closer to New York and New Jersey and bring the worst weather there.

Wherever Sandy comes ashore will get 10 inches of rain and extreme storm surges, Louis Uccellini, NOAA's environmental prediction director, said in a Friday news conference. Other areas not directly on Sandy's entry path will still get 4 to 8 inches of rain, maybe more, he said. Up to 2 feet of snow should fall on West Virginia, with lighter snow in parts of Ohio and Pennsylvania, regardless of where Sandy first hits.

A wide swath of the East, measuring several hundreds of miles, will get persistent gale-force winds in the 50 mph area, with some areas closer to storm landfall getting closer to 70 mph, said James Franklin, forecast chief for the National Hurricane Center.

"It's going to be a long-lasting event, two to three days of impact for a lot of people," Franklin said. "Wind damage, widespread power outages, heavy rainfall, inland flooding and somebody is going to get a significant surge event."

That storm surge will only be magnified by the full moon this weekend to make it a "dangerous period," Uccellini said.

The latest track puts Boston just outside the northern boundary, so I'm hoping we'll escape the worst of it. My roof leaks and my cellar is prone to flooding when we have prolonged heavy rain. Mostly, though, I dread losing power for any length of time. No computers, no tv? Unthinkable!

Gotta admit, I'm freaking out.

But I get hypersensitive to these things (check my posts in last year's hurricane scare for an example).

On the plus side, I don't know how accurate they are (usually they are one of my more trusted weather sources), but Weather Underground has Sandy turning inland further south than they were saying earlier today, which is lessening the forecasted impact on us quite a bit.  It's still way to early to tell, though, so I have many sleepless nights ahead, and I'll be good and crazy by the time it hits.

I'm actually heading out to Home Depot for an emergency shipment of generators that it seems like the whole state of Connecticut knows about.

Right now it still looks like the NJ/DE area is going to take it on the chin, and we're just going to get a nasty rainstorm up here. But tropical storms and nor'easters are notoriously unpredictable. We won't really know the storm's track until Sunday, so I've decided not to panic until then. Meanwhile I'm just nervous about it. But I'm the anxious sort anyway, and right now I'm stressing more about the wedding that I have to attend on Sunday than I am about Frankenstorm. One ordeal at a time!

I have completely given up on all weather forecasts... My only way to tell the actual weather is to look outside.... Typically, they say doom...nothing happens... They say don't worry about it... all hell breaks loose...
My store sold out of D batteries and flashlights today.. My wife went food shopping and it was packed.... my boss went through 6 Home Depot/Lowes stores before he found a generator....
I'm gonna make sure my laptops , cell phones, tablets, and kindles are all charged and make sure flashlights have batteries... thats about it.... maybe buy some water...although the wife wants a generator now....
amyway, not gonna worry about it too much....I've tried controlling the weather before...Seems I've lost all of my superpowers, so bah... oh, and I'm in Jersey...

Potentially serious shit:

Quote
Hurricane Sandy, moving north from the Caribbean, was expected to make landfall Monday night near the Delaware coast, then hit two winter weather systems as it moves inland, creating a hybrid monster storm that could bring nearly a foot of rain, high winds and up to 2 feet of snow. Experts said the storm would be wider and stronger than last year's Irene, which caused more than $15 billion in damage, and could rival the worst East Coast storm on record.

I have it on good authority from a self-proclaimed weather geek on facebook that there's never been a storm quite like this, and nobody knows what will happen when those cells merge. It's going to be a humdinger, that much is for sure.

I haven't been following the storm, but I just looked at the spaghetti model. Looks like there's a strong chance it will hit somewhere between Norfolk and NYC, but there's a fair bit of spread in what the various models are predicting. Not sure which models have done the best job predicting the storm so far or how well they account for the unusual circumstances here. Just realize they have to give one official forecast, which is an average of the different models (and in some cases is an unlikely scenario). Often, you can get a much better idea of what they are really thinking from the discussion portions of the advisories. If I were anywhere on the east coast north of NC I'd be battening down the hatches just in case.

Copied from a post at OO:

The chief meteorologist at WHIO-TV in Dayton posted this yesterday:

Quote
So here we are about 3 or 4 days away from what may be the worst storm for the Northeast since humans populated the area. I'm not kidding, that is a possibility. We know neither how strong this beast will be or exactly who will get the worst of it. Why? Because what is about to happen is unprecedented in the years that human have attempted to understand how the atmosphere works. Hurricanes have merged with colder air as an energetic jet stream interacts before. But perhaps not with the intensity of the factors coming into play this time. A similar scenario has happened before, back in 1991 ... the "Perfect Storm" of movie and book lore was born. Forecasts of that storm were awful leading up to it. The center of that system never made landfall along the East Coast. In fact, at its strongest the core of that storm was a few hundred miles east of New England. Here's what resulted: 80 mph winds and 25-foot waves on the Massachusetts Coast. Offshore buoys recorded 40-foot waves (that is enough to swallow a fishing boat). The Maryland Coast recorded record high tides. The lowest barometric pressure with that storm was 972 mb (that corresponds to 28.70" for those of you who are familiar with those units). Some computer forecast models drop the lowest pressure with Sandy to below 940 mb (27.75"). If you have a barometer at home, take a look at it - it doesn't go that low. If that occurs, this storm will bring the lowest barometric pressure ever recorded on the East Coast. Low pressure means wind, an tropical storm force winds already extend hundreds of miles away from the center of Sandy. Some believe as the storm approaches the coast it may intensify which means stronger winds. That means a widespread area of damage and power outages in the most populated part of the country. I feel there is a good chance we will still have some areas, perhaps entire communities, that lose power and still do not have it come Election Day a week later. Think about that ... no power on Election Day ... a hanging chad could pale in comparison.

But here's the problem ... the computer forecast models that all the forecasters will lean on so heavily have no chance of getting this exactly right. Models are either configured (numerically, in terms of the mathematical equations that drive them), to handle either tropical system well, or what we call mid-latitude systems well, that is ones with warm and cold air clashing. There is no model that handles both well. If there were we would have one great model and my life would be far less stressful. The hurricane will merge with colder air and energy from the jet stream and transition from a tropical system into what we call an extratropical one. Historically the computer forecast models are not good when this happens. The latest National Hurricane Center forecast takes Sandy early Tuesday into the New Jersey or Deleware Coast on a westward track (which by the way has NEVER happened since we have been keeping track of these sort of things). They may be weighing the models that handle tropical system a bit more heavily, but those models should become less accurate as the colder, mid-latitude air works into Sandy's circulation near landfall. As of early this afternoon we have a threat or landfall anywhere between the eastern shore of Maryland and Massachusetts. It may be later Monday or even as late as early Wednesday. We will hear about this storm for weeks after it happens. Homes will fall into the ocean and lives will be lost. If the damaging winds are widespread enough, it may be one of the costliest weather events in U.S. history due to the population likely affected.

Copied from a post at OO:

Yeah, that gives a great sense of the complexity involved. I'm always fascinated by those deeper discussions of storm behavior. Bottom line is that this is a wildly unpredictable scenario. And again, with all that complexity, all those variables, the weather service has to give one forecast that fits into a sound byte for the masses. I think that's why we perceive forecasting of storms to be so inaccurate, because the forecast most people see is such a drastic oversimplification.

For those who are interested, and want more info, I find the hurricane tracking site at boatus.com to be really helpful (and NOAA.gov of course).

Ready here in the southeast corner of PA (about fifteen minutes from both MD and DE). We rode out Irene just fine here, loss of power and a few books when our library roof leaked but that was it. Mostly just keeping an eye on severity - my mom lives on the Delmarva peninsula and I've got a standing offer to pick her up and let her ride it out here if it looks too bad down there.

Pretty much nobody here is panicking though - went to the store today to stock some stuff for our Halloween party, and was able to get bread and some spring water just fine. I figure it's the same as usual here - be ready to lose power for a day or three, have food and water on hand, and fresh batteries for all the camping lanterns. If the effects last any longer, I'll have to head west to find somewhere to work from anyway, so I'm not too worried about an extended power outage. And we're on a hill here, so no worries about flooding.

Mostly just rolling my eyes at one of my housemates, who believes that the annual big storm is pretty much a media fabrication since she personally has never been severely affected by one.

Had to go to the market yesterday for my mom and it was a madhouse.   Decided to grab a few bags of ice for when her power goes out.  My sister and I have tried to get her to leave but my mother is proud and wants to stay in her home. Her neighbor is a US Marshal so we spoke and he will keep an eye on her for me

Anyway, I am prepared as I can be.. food, water and batteries.  I live in downtown Baltimore, so we have underground powerlines, so I doubt we will lose power.

She's heading in a lot more South than they were guessing which, while still terrible, is causing predictions here in Connecticut to be fairly mild.  If you can call 80mph wind gusts mild.  Rain-wise, though, they're estimating less than 2 inches today and maybe another quarter to half inch tomorrow.

As prepared as I can be... waited 8 hours, but got a generator just in case.. no evacuations in my area called... and work is still on...
Watching the news just annoys me with some of the ways people are acting though... areas in severe danger have evacuations and people are just like "no, we'll be fine as long as we stick together" and other such nonsense... So, if we all just stick together, we can avoid storms forever? Is Linda going to take a look at this "strong" group of people and say"Whoah, let me just skirt around here..."
And this was from people on beachfront proerty, where the ocean is already just about lapping at their door and the hurricane hasn't even arrived yet... EIA indeed!

Lost juice here in the NYC Jersey 'Burbs around 9 EST.  Transformers just started kersploding, one every 5 minutes or so, around the neighborhood.  Glad I'm about 15 miles inland, though.  The reports coming in from manhattan & the shoreline are just insane.
