The Atlantic after Michael

Posted: 04:49 PM 14 October 2018 | | Add Comment

Hurricane Michael will be one remembered for years to come for this decade for Florida. Although Irma, Matthew and Hermine (The other 3 hurricanes, and only ones from the decade) will be remembered, the raw violent nature of Michael will put that at the top, along with its impacts well inland. Post analysis may bring it up to Category 5 after all is said and done. Callaway, Tyndall, Mexico Beach, Cape San Blas and Panama City within Gulf and Bay counties are forever changed, as many areas around ti were also.

Our twitter feed is full of examples and response to it.

Beyond that Leslie made landfall in Portugal and brought damage to there, very unexpectedly.

Two low-chance areas are being watched, a 20% area in the West Caribbean (94L) and another area in the Central Atlantic with 10%. Neither have much model support, but there is a possibility for one or two more systems this season before all is said and done.

Hurricane Leslie making a final run of it today - all the way to Portugal- while beginning to undergo merger with a front and extra-tropical transition. Leslie, it's been real. And a really long time reading your advisories..

Reports from some of those who were there in Panama City. Including those who have went to multiple large hurricanes. The most violent system they have been in, and the whole city looks like a nuke was dropped on it and the damage is very widespread. Particularly in Panama City Proper and points east. Some of the cell networks are not operating or are extremely spotty.
