Quote: Man oh man, nothing ceases at amaze me at this point. I mean the rapid strengthening that Dennis and now Emily have undergone is just something to watch. Let's hope Emily stays south, but I am beginning to get the feeling that Emily might make a US landfall......Texas really needs to watch and I don't think Louisiana is out of the woods yet either.
I'm with you. I don't feel comfortable with this one until she's made landfall. Or as some of the models are indicating...lost her spin.
Okay, Recon has departed the storm and next Vortex is due at 12Z or 8AM EDT. Unless the NOAA plane is tasked with fixes while the USAFR isn't flying. NOAA planes pulled double duty with Dennis. They could do it again with Emily.
Aren't the recon flights dropping drop sondes in the area to help determine the future environment?
different missions for different sampling...i have seen recon out to over 500 miles in front of a system to do their sampling.
