    Irma is powerful and organized and will fluctuate in strength for the next 48 hours till it settles on a Cat 3/4.

    Edit: Yes this can grow to a Cat 5 in the next week. I was just saying a Cat 3/4 before it turns north.

    The big question is when will Irma turn north! The models and forecasts have had to keep adjusting west over the last few days. 30-40 miles difference will make a HUGE difference in where this storm will go.

    The chances of this storm going "out to sea" are being reduced by the hour, but are NOT at zero.

    The chances of this storm going into the gulf are as small as it going to sea.

    Almost every model run at the moment has the storm from Florida to Washington DC. However, yesterday they had it going out to sea. (At least the Euro)

    Update:

    The storm is growing as expected.

    The models are now starting to move to west, but in my opinion to far west. (Models and not NHC forecast) Three days ago the Euro had this going out to Sea, and now it's suggesting a Gulf of Mexico storm.

    These models are bi-polar IMHO.

    I will still stick with my forecast above - Florida to North Carolina with a slight chance of out to sea.

    Gulf of Mexico is a very slight chance.

    Still to much uncertainty at this point to know 100%. We might have to wait till Tuesday to know for sure.

    On that run, Havana the Keys,Miami,Palm beach all up to Jacksonville and including Orlando would be wiped out if this run was to ever verify. But again it's a long range for that, and many things change.

    My worst fear was to see a solution just like that. Also, the trend continues west. This storm may ride along Cuba or pass through the Keys (very strong,) and enter the GOM and never gets captured at all from the eastern trough.

    With the latest GFS run. The GOM odds are going up. What is going down, is the OTS solution or hitting the NE.

    ECMWF 0Z (EURO Model,) is stuck at hour 72. People are reporting the ECMWF system itself has crashed. It's not with the feeder site.


    If nothing happens in the next few minutes, i'm off to bed. It's been out for 25 minutes now.

    It seems to me that at one time or another I recall reading something about how a direct hit on Miami with a Cat 5 was on the same list of official disaster terror as a direct hit on New Orleans, New York City, and another 1938 hurricane ripping across the Northeast (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1938_N...land_hurricane). We've had New Orleans (Katrina), New York (Sandy), and now Houston (Harvey), so maybe the people who should REALLY be worried are those in the Miami metro area.

    The GFS and EURO Models are very close on track ATM except, the GFS has lower pressures and stronger winds.

    See how the models behave tomorrow through Tuesday. Right now, the models are getting in better agreement past 120 hours-192. That's concerning...

    September 3, 2017: Any landfall of a anywhere of a Category 4 or 5 hurricane is not going to be a good scenario, especially if the area is dealing with sea level rise prior to a landfall and thousands of residents living on the coast in high-rise buildings. The storm is strengthening and lets hope that doesn't happen. http://news.brevardtimes.com/2017/08/... https://www.scientificamerican.com/ar... http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov #MrMBB333 SUBSCRIBE for UPDATES Website: https://www.mrmbb333.com **Subscribe to my channels below** YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/MrMBB333 (Subscribe) CLIMATE CHAOS Channel YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCItd...

    Even thought it will change again, as of 06z GFS now has it coming into S FLorida (strong cat 3 in keys; low cat 3 when entering FL) with the eye going up along the Gulf Coast side for a little bit and then turning inland into the lower SW FL and then going up thru FL and into GA.

    like I said....it will most likely change again, so we will wait and see, but the GOM/FL are much more certain looking

    Well, the only 'good' thing about this hurricane is it appears to be moving at a pretty good clip as most of them do. It's not going to sit and meander over the same area like Harvey did. Whatever Irma does she is going to do quickly and then move on out. And as a reminder don't get too fixated over one computer model such as the GFS. There are numerous models, some better than others but it's still way too early to know precisely what Irma is going to do. However, if you live in the Florida panhandle or on the eastern side along and up the east coast you better be preparing and get your stuff. Everyone is fixated on North Korea and labor day right now. When the storm watches start going on later today and tomorrow people will start to pay attention. If you need anything including your bottled water and topping off your fuel do it today.

    Anyone from western MS border to the East Coast should be paying attention and at least start checking things over and seeing what needs replaced, etc.


    I don't think it will come into LA (other than maybe some outer bands) but it does keep moving west.

    Well, I live in the middle of Florida between Orlando and Jacksonville, so some of these predictions are scary. I was in Walmart last night and they had NO water. I stay pretty well stocked up on things, but wouldn't mind getting another 4-6 cases of water. Will definitely get some more tarps this afternoon. And will be keeping a very close eye on this one.

    Lots of people all over FL reported last night that their local stores were out of water.

    At least there is still quite a bit of time for a few restocks at the store.

    Irma is running in a "clean" channel from east to west with no upward pressure from the lower boundary of said channel to turn Irma north. The upper boundary looks to be squeezed downward as indicated by the thin clouds rotating down wards.
    The far west end of this channel is retreating even farther west as indicated by the clouds rotating or sliding west. Irma may not turn until it hits the Gulf of Mex.
    Irma needs to turn soon or just keep going west.

    Gallon sized distilled water perhaps? Unless all that was scarfed up as well. One thing you can do of course although it's not convenient is to put up your own. Get a bunch of 2 liter pop bottles if you don't already have them and fill them up. You could also get some 5 gallon plastic jugs that are used to store either gas or kerosene. Gas jugs might be selling out but the blue kerosene ones are probably in stock and you could use those. Also consider a water filtration device then you don't need to store so much water. If you don't already have one you can jump on line and get one from Amazon and have it to you within two days at a reasonable price.

    You can also use large trash bags to line most any container and use it to hold water. It doesn't have to be anything fancy or expensive.

    Save the bottled stuff to drink and use the bulk for flushing and bathing.

  28. #148
    I once filled a bunch of standard sized plastic trashcans with water and stored them on the north side of my house where the sun couldn't shine on them. After a few months, the sides down at the bottom of about half of the cans blew out. Cracks running vertically from the ground and up about four to six inches.

    If I ever do this again, I will first tightly wrap at least the bottom ten inches of each trashcan with duct tape. Probably Gorilla tape, since the regular stuff, even name brand, isn't worth a poop any more.

  29. #149
    If you want to use a big container like a flower pot to store water, one with holes in it, put an old rag rug, or equivalent, in the bottom of the pot before you line it with the plastic bag. That will keep the plastic from bulging through the holes and bursting. Whatever you use will be greatly compressed, so be sure it will still be thick enough after it's compressed.

    Made the grocery run yesterday, before the rest of the folks in town figure out what's coming at us. If Irma goes the way I think she will, things should get exciting here by the end of the week as the natives go into "panic mode".
    If at first you don't secede, try, try again!

    Especially with what happened with Harvey still fresh in everyone's mind. Come tomorrow once Labor Day is over the mind of the hive will start buzzing so git her done today.

    So, being in Athens/Atlanta area this weekend isn't looking so hot right now if you ask me.
    I hate to make this "all about me", truly I'm not. I'm paranoid about the trip as it is anyway and driving into torrential rains isn't making me feel too good.

    acknowledge Him in all your ways and He will direct your path.

    If I ever do this again, I will first tightly wrap at least the bottom ten inches of each trashcan with duct tape. Probably Gorilla tape, since the regular stuff, even name brand, isn't worth a poop any more.
    Rather than that, go with good galvanized cans, or look for a source of blue barrels that held food. Probably be cheaper in the long run.

    For storing just a few gallons of your own water, Wal-Mart and other places sell containers with spigot that hold anywhere from 1 to 5 gallons. I started filling up a couple with our artesian well water and sending it home with our son and his wife every time they visit. It saves them a few bucks on purchased water.
