yeah i get it for those of us used to a temperate climate the last couple summers have been pretty bad

i wouldn'the want to have to go thru a hurricane in the gulf that's for sure

at least it's not something we have to worry about here crazy extreme weather that is

other natural disasters on the other hand like the occasional volcanic eruption and ensuing pyroclastic flows and lahars

or a massive earthquake followed by giant tsunamis

and the reason i slept outside last summer is because when it reached 112 degrees outside

inside it was 124 degrees in the kitchen at 7pm and was 103 at midnight and still in the 80's by 6am

and this went on for three days as well

and as crholmstrom pointed out above another day in the 90's today and yesterday

but it's looking up for the weekend back to the upper 60's

and maybe some rain!

Yet a hurricane in the Gulf, near my area anyway, would cool us DOWN!!!!

Fall starts September 1st, meteorologically. The equinox/solstice thing is bullshit. Change trending months determine the change of seasons, not the moon or the sun. Yeah they're related. Whatever. OK say down here we don't cool off like way north of here - but our average high starts to lower.

Way north of here it gets colder way faster. That's how it works. A majority of the US is north of the Gulf Coast.

HA HA!

So easy to forget!

A year ago tomorrow, the 29th, at about this time, 11 PM, I had to put a jacket on I got so cold.

I'm out in the sun all day, which is anywhere from 110 to 130 degrees F. Ida came through and the temps went into the 70s.

I got cold.

That's a big swing from what I'm used to.

Scientifically hurricanes are cooling engines, transporting humid hot air towards the poles. Balance.

So yes, they cool things down, in a number of ways.

Typhoon Noru has had the greatest intensification on record.

Hurricane Fiona brought the lowest pressure ever to Atlantic Canada.

Tropical Storm Ian will curve around Cuba and... become a 3, 4 or a 5 at some point but only possibly a 3 at the strongest at landfall near the big bend in Florida.

Re: OT: Weather around the world

Hurricane Ian has brought major storm surge and damage to Fort Meyers, FLA.

Weakened, slightly, just before landfall, to 150 mph winds with gusts to, reportedly, 190ish mph in Punta Gorda - who had the same in 2004.

9th insurance company pulled out of Louisiana today.

Florida is next.

Of major landfalling hurricanes along the Gulf Coast since 2017, one has been a 5, the rest have been 4s. Of all 5 of landfalling category 5 hurricanes in the Atlantic Basin, 4 have been in Florida, one in Mississippi.

But lately, just the Gulf Coast? Majority have been major hurricanes. Plenty of category 3 storms as well.

The last time there was any kind of run of that magnitude was in the 1940s but that was not just the Gulf Coast as I recall at the moment.

So many people thought the 2022 hurricane season was a dud especially based on predictions. It's just gotten going. October should be interesting. And probably November.

I do remember and I changed my room reservation to a day earlier. Got killed on the cost but of course, well worth it. Never dreamed it would be the last show for Charlie. Ian was truly frightening. I can't even imagine what those hit badly are dealing with. Prayers to them.

The storms aren't necessarily getting stronger and stronger, it's where they're getting "stronger" in regard to landfall.

Technology has allowed more storms to be observed but the average for major hurricanes has not gone up. A category 1 can be just as problematic as a 4 or 5 though.

Ian was a high 4 like a lot of the hurricanes to hit the Gulf Coast since 2017. In that time span nothing has gone over a 4 at landfall in the United States except for one, Michael, and for the 4 category 5 hurricanes to hit the US, ever, all but one have hit Florida (2 on the Atlantic side, 1 on the GOM side, the other was in Mississippi).

Search and rescue efforts continue in SW Florida hoping to find survivors in all of the destruction. There are homes and boats thrown everywhere and they expect the death toll to rise dramatically once they are able to get through all of the debri. I pray they are wrong. The rivers are up to four times the flood level and homes are still underwater. People lost everything but the clothes they were wearing. The best way to help is through the American Red Cross. It is so sad.

Still dealing with the wildfire smoke that has been plaguing Seattle most of the month. Yesterday we had some of the most unhealthy air in the world again. It's supposed to start slowly clearing out today. Definitely hasn't been good for me.

Hey Cr, up here in the Vancouver/Fraser Valley area we still have a lot of smoke, I believe there's a fire just across the border. There was a weather advisory yesterday for poor air.
Also, was a very dry September with many daily temperature records broken. Even areas along the coast are experiencing drought like conditions with a number of rivers/streams down to a trickle causing spawning salmon to die.

Vancouver area as well as most of Vancouver Island is in a stage 5 drought alert, which is the highest. No measurable rain here in probably 3 months. Yesterday Vancouver asked people to cut back on water usage!
Out in the Fraser Valley we have an air quality alert because of all the smoke from forest fires just across the border in Washington. Never seen it this bad so late in the year!

As usual, with a hurricane hitting S Florida tonight, people are going bonkers about climate change on Twitter etc.

Hurricane season ends November 30th for a reason.

Hurricanes have hit the United States in November.

It's rare.

If climate change was the reason for Hurricane Nicole hitting Florida tonight, wouldn't she be a category 3 or higher? The sea surface temperatures certainly support such strength but... oh, right, there's a lot more to it than that. But why let facts get in the way? CLIMATE CHANGE!!!!!!!!

It is having an impact on hurricanes but not as people have foamed at the mouth about (there has been zero impact on major hurricanes, for one thing).

Kate hit Mexico Beach on November 22, 1985 as a category 2: the latest landfalling hurricane in the United States.

Hurricane Yankee was the last hurricane to hit the east coast of the United States on November 4, 1935, so Nicole breaks that record tonight.

Aside from the United States... hurricanes form in November.

Tropical Storm Zeta formed December 30, 2005 and dissipated January 6.

In 2020 there were hurricanes Eta and Iota two weeks apart: both making landfall at almost the exact same location in Nicaragua in the Caribbean.

There have been 3 hurricanes formed this month in the N Atlantic. It was expected.

The 2023 hurricane season will be quiet in comparison to even this year, which has been basically normal, yet along the last 5 seasons.
