Sandy delivered 29 foot waves and 6 foot storm surge. Will irma be this bad?

Wow, rain bands. Something that's never unheard of. Fill us with more doom. Most likely, by the tine it hits Virgina, Irma will not be catasphroic.

Any model that does not show that rediculous hard right turn is believable.

FPL is estimating that 4.1 million will be without power.

4 to 6 weeks will be a better estimate.

Read this on FB, thought it was appropriate.


The rest of the country: Florida, we will have you in our prayers under this trying time. We would not wish this devastation upon anyone.

Floridians: We are the Honey Badger. *grabs bottle of booze and cigarettes* We give no #s. *rises up on a cloud of mosquitos* We are not a species meant to last. *loads shotgun to shoot hurricane with* Our everyday weather and wildlife can kill us but doesn't. *dropkicks a gator* We are the Australia of the US. *holds up Floridian Flag as eagle screeches overhead* We fear nothing. *#Murica* Bring. It. On.

Do you really think that storms can't make sharp turns?

See the trough off the east coast and the one more north? See the ridge over the Gulf? That's why Irma is going to turn.

Rare to happen, and almost never predicted in advance.

Idk, this is also a storm on a different magnitude than we have seen in my lifetime in Florida. No one can predict what this giant girl is gonna do.

If the Weather Service gets this right they should win an award from the president.

The intensity may be up for grabs, a bit. But the track is determined by the surrounding weather.

Irma has been behaving pretty much as expected so far and there's no reason to expect it to not turn north.

KEY MESSAGES:

1. Irma will continue to bring life-threatening wind, storm surge,
and rainfall hazards to portions of the Bahamas and the north coast
of Cuba, especially over the adjacent Cuban Keys, through Saturday.

2. Irma is expected to make landfall in Florida as an extremely
dangerous major hurricane, and will bring life-threatening wind
impacts to much of the state regardless of the exact track of the
center.

3. There is the danger of life-threatening storm surge inundation in
portions of central and southern Florida, including the Florida
Keys, during the next 36 hours, where a Storm Surge Warning is in
effect. The threat of significant storm surge flooding along the
southwest coast of Florida has increased, and 8 to 12 feet of
inundation above ground level is possible in this area. This is a
life-threatening situation. Everyone in these areas should take all
actions to protect life and property from rising water and follow
evacuation instructions from local officials.

4. Irma is expected to produce very heavy rain and inland flooding.
Total rain accumulations of 8 to 15 inches, with isolated amounts of
20 inches are expected over the Florida Keys and much of the Florida
peninsula through Tuesday night. Irma will likely bring periods of
heavy rain to much of the Florida Panhandle, Georgia, South
Carolina, and western North Carolina early next week, including some
mountainous areas which are more prone to flash flooding. All areas
seeing heavy rainfall from Irma will experience a risk of flooding
and flash flooding.
