Recon for storm off the US East Coast?

#1 Postby WeatherGuesser » Thu Jan 04, 2018 6:12 am

I've seen casual references to Hurricane Hunters exploring the winter storm and winds estimated to exceed hurricane force. Is anybody here watching any of that?

I have never heard of such a thing. Occasionally there will be sampling missions in the Pacific ahead of big storms but not recon. Watch for when the winds turn NW at this buoy http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.p ... t=E&tz=STN they could be close.

Besides aren’t these East Coast storms moving rather quickly? It would be hard for them to sample it.

Odd. The 'casual reference' I saw earlier vaporized, so I thought it had been mistaken.

Probably one of the strongest bombogenesis events near the U.S. East Coast in over four decades according to The Weather Channel.

It's quite common for them to fly into winter cyclones off the east coast.
