Can anyone confirm this? The NWS data has 17.15 inches of rain in the last 6 hours at Vera Cruz?! I can't find METARS for this station with precip amounts. Seems crazy... (And I know sometimes these values can be way off)

50 kt FL winds and 55 kt SFMR in moderate rain (44 kt clean). Supports 45 kt, maybe 50 kt depending on rain rate reductions.

That seems very unlikely unless the station is in an area where terrain influences rainfall.

:uarrow: I think they go by cm or mm not inches when they report rainfall totals.

Not yet, it is still offshore about 20-30 miles east of Veracruz.

Locally yes, but this is through an NWS application which converts it to inches (see column header). Also there are very high mountains just west of the city so there definitely could be orographic lift going on. Ok, I'll keep looking..

Look at the Continous winds and peak gust for the hour. 40 knot winds (I think those are 10-minute winds), with a gust to 53 knots during the hour! So already gusts to 60 mph!

Based on a mix of surface and SFMR data, I would put the intensity at 50 kt right now personally.

Ok, it's definitely not legit since the 9PM EDT report shows 35 inches, lol.

Is it centimeters of rain and not inches - labeled incorrectly? That would be a bit more reasonable - still a deluge of a foot of rain if so

Good evening, Pete...perhaps, that total is not as outlandish as it first appears...the site averaged a bit under 3in/hr for six hours...obviously torrential but conceivable given that the long axis of the main feeder band set up over coastal Veracruz state. Running roughly wnw to ese, that relatively stationary band set up early this afternoon, training thunderstorms along the axis with the individual storms moving ese at 25-30kts. If that scenario verifies, I believe it could account for the ~18inches of accum rainfall. Does that sound reasonable to you, Pete?....Grtz from KW, Rich

PS Just saw the 35 inch total, now that I cant account for :oops:
