The slow nature of this storn will cause Cat 4 or Cat 5 type damage even though it is a Cat 2

Exactly the line I use when speaking to my students about stuff we talk about in the news. I SWEAR TO GOD IF I WAS IN CHARGE DOWN THERE I WOULD NOT SEND HELP

I concur - people even on Ocracoke Island 200 from reports did not evacuate and the town officials said sorry no help is coming if you call - right call. No one EVER believe in MOTHER NATURES FURY!

here are our effects next week - rain and a good amount:

Damn Ray  You beat me to it.  I wanted post that and give you kudos.  Frictional forces, Convergence over land, lowering pressures...I remember Wink

Well, thank you, Scott haha if somebody can post an animation of the microwave imagery, they can see that the ideas did prove to have merit. As Florence encountered the coastline, it actually did move northward along the coast before landfalling, and to my knowledge, NO model had shown that. This is not to brag, but instead to show how forecasters can still add a lot of value over raw model output, and how meteorology is much greater than modelology.

Here you go. Clearly visible on the Microwave. Last 48hr loop

They use tipping buckets and are affected by the wind, causing artificially higher rainfall amounts.

That said lets say 12" or 1 foot of that 35" rain total is artifcat due to wind interference..that still means approx 2 feet of rain have fallen with much more to go. Still incredible.

And it can go the other way, with wind blowing the rain sideways, you can under report rain totals....

This is incorrect. TC's are actually a undersample situation due to high rainfall rates and the high winds.

I couldn't agree more Frank. I thought a lot about that yesterday as the Cat status kept dropping and how that really was misleading and not a true reflection of the potential for damage and loss of life. It was a really bad time for anyone to let their guard down.

It actually got me to pondering whether there's a better way to communicate the danger and damage potential beyond just tracking categories to wind speed. Harvey and Florence were slow, grinding, rain-dumping machines. If that's a pattern we may need to come up with some kind of damage potential index that better incorporates wind speed, the surge, and the rain, with other factors like storm size, flood potential, topography and elevation, proximity to water, ground saturation, soil type, and even the kinds of homes and buildings in the area and the ability for people to escape.

Mom, I read a few days ago a local official saying "Don't worry about the horses, they will be fine". I hope he is right about that.
This storm is nearly stationary, flooding will be extreme.That rain report of 35 inches earlier is mind boggling.

Just west of Wilmington has been sitting under the stationary eyewall for 6 straight hours and picked up 18” of rain during that time and God knows how much wind. Holy Shit!

wwmom,take some advise from an old man. I know it's like driving by a car wreck, and you just gotta look, but give yourself a break and step away from the tv for a while. You're gonnna make yourself crazy. Go have an adult beverage and try to relax a bit. I can feel your passion, concern and at times anger coming thru your texts. I hope all your family and friends have found safe haven.

PS-as doc said, I also saw on the news that the horses should fare well. The reporter said they knew by instinct what to do, and as you said they've been there for 100's of years so they must be doing something right Thumbs up

In some ways the weakening before reaching the coast was a blessing, but I wonder if the drop in (wind) strength caused anyone to let their guard down seeing it go from Cat 4 to Cat 2. I think the NHC and government did a good job of conveying that the category drop in no way diminished the potential impact of the storm surge and rains, but some people don't always listen to the details.
