Side Note: This past week has been very challenging for any forecaster. Hurricane Joaquin was horribly forecasted by humans and computers. It also was like a razors edge as to whether it would curve into the east coast or stay out to sea. Tough forecast.
Side Note #2: The wind and east coast rain, esp. in the Carolinas is due to a Nor’easter sitting in the SE coastal waters. It is not due to the Hurricane. Without the hurricane this weather would still be nasty. Yes, the hurricane is helping feed some moisture into the Nor’easter, and enhancing the pressure gradient somewhat, but those are indirect effects. The weather would be nasty without the hurricane. Thankfully it is staying out to sea.
My Weather Points:
- Hurricane Joaquin: Out to sea.
- Winds: Gusty but dying by Mon morning
- Rainfall: Showers and drizzle Sat, Sat night, ending Sunday. Another chance showers Fri.
