Looks like one buoy north of Long Island has 30 MPH.

    Steven – when you do the conversion from furlongs/fortnight 😉 isn’t it about 34 mph?

    On south shore of LI where I am the storm surge will be devastating. It’s high tide right now and water is at the Irene level from last year. Irene was the highest level since Hurricane Gloria in 1985 (which was at dead-low tide while Irene was at dead-high tide). The experts are saying the high tide tonight (about 11PM) will be much worse. If correct my home will have a couple of feet of water in it, which has never happened since it was built in 1961

  3. I wonder if the cold front might just smother the hurricane.

    Hmmm, 50 mph winds and 2 inches of rain. Out west we call that a summer thunderstorm. Nothing to see here, move on.

    You guys just dont understand eastern Hurricanes. I brought that up with Irene The data buoy DEMO2 south of Long Island had winds sustained at 95 with gusts over 130 mph. A 6 foot measurement doesnt cut it and as much as I love real science the playing down of Irene last year showed a lack of understanding of what was actually going on there, and the devastation that is Sandy shows the same thing. You have to be in one of these to understand what the wind is truly doing . Besides winds are cut 25-35% once a mile inland. Irene was a 15 billion dollar storm with power knocked out to millions. This storm was even higher, and as I said last week the coastline between ACY and Mtk would be unrecognizable. By what you are saying here, Ike would have only been a minimal hurricane, for goodness sakes. We have to win with truth, not trying to deny the fact that storms come. More importantly one must understand the structure of these storms to know how there winds are not like what we see in the classic tropical cyclones, but in bands that will move through areas and then leave. Irene spoke for herself.. Sandy spoke louder. Most importantly the barometric pressure should be the screaming messenger to you that somewhere the storm is raging though it may not be catching the ob site, again, inland, at the time Data buoy demo2 certainly was the precursor to the surge that occurred
