Fall Weather 2016

Interesting tidbit on the weather report today. Weather dude was talking about global warming temp increases in this area and he said that the adks had risen more than their surrounding environs, i.e. Tug hill, Mohawk Valley and western VT.

Acorns dropping early this year, green ones too. Don't know what that means tho.
 
Apples are supposed to be dropping early, too. Report I saw blamed it on the dry weather.

A week out, but it looks like y'all could be in for some intense rain. Up to 5" in less than 24 hours in parts of the Catskills.

Re: Fall Weather 2016

Things have trended toward a lot less precip. Highest amounts over an inch in Southern New Hampshire but nowhere near as impressive as the totals in the run from yesterday.

Re: Fall Weather 2016

Sure feels like the media wants this storm to be or seem as bad as possible.

Re: Fall Weather 2016

Ugh. Just another media hyped weather event that will almost definitely not be as bad as advertised.

I remember last winter when they said everyone should stay inside their houses because the -10 degree temps were "deadly". Some of the best skiing days of the season.

my sister lives on South Beach in Miami, she asked the other day if she should evacuate.. Told her to stay put , she said it hardly rained and spent most of the day watching the surfers...

that being said , some of the coastal communities are getting roughed up....but wide spread devastation is not in the cards.

With the potential and uncertainty associated with a storm like Matthew.....I don't fault the media for their coverage.  Sure, it's "only" a category 3 and the eyewall is staying far enough off the coast to keep the devastating winds down.  However, the storm surge and flooding, which are the primary killers in hurricanes, are going to be significant and devastating to some.  Without the "hype" it might have been devastating to even more people than it ends up being.

Sure, the media eats it up and goes to sensational worst case reporting, but in these circumstances I don't necessarily see that as a bad thing.

Re: Fall Weather 2016

Jason.....Miami, as far as I saw, was never under a Hurricane Warning, I think they had a Trpoical Storm Warning?  Sure, they didn't even get that.  However, unless something is a guaranteed Andrew is the media supposed to lay off?  Whose going to issue that guarantee?  While the Miami area avoided the impacts, the eye wall is only 10 miles off the Daytona coast, and the storm surge will rival Sandy, which was plenty devastating to an awful lot of people.  I'm glad many have been spared the worst of the potential impacts, but many will still suffer quite a bit....and if that number is less than it could have been as a result of the "hype", how can anyone not be ok with that?

Sorry, I've got good friends in Jacksonville, so I'm a little closer to this one than other storms...
