    Saw a head in the IT today that said Ireland was in a state of "Absolute Drought".....imagine if it stopped raining.....
    In DC we're coming off a week of 95/97 temps, and heat indexes (what it feels like) of up to 109 because of humidity....

    Ah give us a break, we've been very well behaved considering that very few of us have seen the 30° here that we got last week, never mind the 33°c that we'll see next week and we might as well have invented humidity.

    I love it for my bones, ye get used to weeks of high 20°s - 30° ( my car temperature gauge even hit 34° this week ) as long as the water keeps flowing from the taps.


    It's funny how things go. When the Shannon was breaking record high water levels over the last few years people were roaring about how petty locals were who wanted to protect summer water levels as Dublin wanted to pump from Lough Ree. The protectionists don't look so misguided now.

    New heat record: Death Valley had the hottest month in American history in July, with an average temperature of 108.1°F.Go deeper.

    We've had a quiet Hurricane season so far, but are now hitting the period of peak activity.
    Three of these Atlantic storms have strengthened considerably in the last 24 hours. Virginia and the Carolinas have already declared a state of emergency for the first one, Florence.


    Situational awareness: Forecasters are warily eyeing as many as 7 to 9 tropical cyclones that may spin up in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans in the next week, Axios' Andrew Freedman reports.

    • Of greatest concern to the East Coast is Tropical Storm Florence, which is now forecast to intensify into a Category 3 storm and potentially make landfall next week, somewhere along the East Coast.

    Florence on track for direct, dangerous strike
    AP
    Hurricane Florenceis going through an astonishingly rapid intensification process, and could hit anywhere from the Carolinas to the Mid-Atlantic by Thursday or Friday.
    Axios science editor Andrew Freedman has this cheat sheet:
    If Florence follows current model projects and official forecasts, it would:

    • Be capable of producing 20-30+ inches of rain in the Carolinas and Mid-Atlantic, possibly including the D.C. area. This is a nightmare inland flood scenario.
    • Bring hurricane-force winds for more than a day to a swath of land about 350 miles in diameter or greater, extending well inland from the landfall point.
    • Drive one of the largest potential storm surges on record onto the Carolina coast.
    • Be one of the strongest hurricanes on record to make landfall in the Carolinas or Mid-Atlantic.
    • Make landfall or come closest to land on Thursday-Friday before stalling for up to three days.

    Be smart: This could be a major test of how President Trump handles another multifaceted crisis, this time one that is possibly at his literal doorstep.

    Florence went from Cat 1 to Cat 4 (140mph) in 24 hours. 1M people under mandatory evacuation order in SC alone. 500k in NC and 250K in Va.
    Here in DC we passed the average annual rainfall of 39.2 in. in August. Gonna be a wet one.

    We [Ireland] can expect the residue of that in around 2-3 weeks time then?

    Helene and her remnants would be a more immediate threat to Ireland/Western Europe.

    What are your thoughts about this, and when is landfall expected ?

    I'm hearing a lot of people are not evacuating because they don't think it will be different from 'normal' hurricanes/storms.

    These are basically no win situations for the gummint. They have to err on the side of caution otherwise if there are casualties they are accused of ******** up, so a good minority of people always say it's an over reaction and stay put. In these days of climate change that is an increasingly risky bet. Emergency services say they will not put their people at risk attempting to rescue people.


    The most northerly Cat 4 ever.......


    The latest projections predict Hurricane Florence could stall just off the North Carolina coast, dumping feet of rain inland while sustained hurricane force winds complicate rescue and recovery efforts.

    • Trump on the storm: “If you are asked to leave, get out... [Florence will be] tremendously big and tremendously wet — tremendous amount of water.”
    • Trump added that the East Coast won't suffer like Puerto Rico because they are better prepared. “Unlike Puerto Rico they have very strong power companies.”
    • But the president called the federal response to Maria a "tremendous success."

    The big picture: "North Carolina has been hit by only one other Category 4 storm since reliable record keeping began in the 1850s. That was Hurricane Hazel in 1954," the AP's Emery Dalesio reports.
    Between the lines: "Just months ago, disaster planners simulated a Category 4 hurricane strike" on the East Coast, the AP's Jeff Martin reports.

    • "A fictional 'Hurricane Cora' barreled into southeast Virginia and up the Chesapeake Bay to strike Washington, D.C." (Hurricane Florence is currently expected to make landfall to the south, in North Carolina.)
    • "The result was catastrophic damage, which has some experts concerned that Hurricane Florence could produce a disaster comparable to 2005′s Hurricane Katrina..."
    • "Evacuation is known to be challenging in Hampton Roads, a coastal region inhabited by 1.7 million people in cities such as Norfolk, Virginia, and Virginia Beach."
    • "In Charleston, South Carolina, where the average elevation is only around 11 feet (3.4 meters) above sea level, storm surge and flooding from a hurricane’s drenching rain has the same effect — cutting off access, said Norman Levine, an associate professor at the College of Charleston."

    What to expect from Hurricane Florence:

    • Storm surge: Depending on the landfall location, Hurricane Florence is likely to bring a devastating storm surge to the Carolinas, possibly exceeding 15 to 20 feet, Axios' Andrew Freedman reports.
    • Damaging winds: A relatively small area of the coastline will experience the worst of the storm's winds, but a large area will still see a long duration of damaging winds from Florence. "Locations may be uninhabitable for weeks or months," according to the NWS' Wilmington office.
    • Inland flooding: The greatest risk from Hurricane Florence is its rainfall potential, both near the coast and inland. This is due to the storm's slow forward speed.
