she has weakened down to a 2, but some strengthening is expected

she may skirt the coast, which could cause severe flooding on Ga, SC, NC's coasts, especially with flooding at high tide with the king tide

Dorian could still be a tropical storm when it blows through Newfoundland on Sunday afternoon!***

This is the future when it comes to all tropical storms as the trend has become firmly established that rising ocean temperatures lead to more powerful storms, while declining Arctic temperatures mean less atmospheric circulation to move storms along. The same effect is being noticed more and more with storms over land -- that settle in one place and just keep dumping rain hour after hour, day after day --
Slow-crawling Dorian a new kind of threat


***this is why Maritimers get pissed off when CNN or other US weather reports say that "we're out of danger, the hurricane is just going out to sea" while the storm track shows it will eventually roll through Nova Scotia or Newfoundland

So true. Debating the changes in the earth's climate, the observable and strengthening changes, is a waste of time for everyone involved. Here's a feature that has become almost continual: the Gulf of Alaska low.

GOES-West - Sector view: Northern Pacific - Air Mass - NOAA / NESDIS / STAR

It seldom moves.

Debating whether human activities are the primary mover of these changes likewise is a waste of time for everyone involved. The only way a person can argue against humans being the primary mover of the changes in climate being observed is through willful ignorance, by referring to old studies, and by cherry picking old data.

The climatological evidence for human-driven climate change continues piling up, and yeah, climatologists have gotten some things wrong. Climatology is a rapidly evolving science, but, where things are headed is fairly clear. It's not a desirable destination.

5 pm update



so far I don't think it's done too much terrible to the mainland

gonna be a close shave with the Carolinas

at least five of the past updates have had it at -79.8° Longitude, after it had been moving west continuously. Hopefully this means it will start moving back east. No northern movement in the last update, either.
