Let's see:

1. Warm core? Nope
2. Organized convection around center? Nope
3. Strongest wind near center? Nope
4. Non-frontal? Nope

I figure the NHC doesn't want to confuse people by calling it post-tropical as they did with Sandy. However, they are now free to issue advisories on "post-tropical" (extratropical) storms.

It appears that Irma was transitioning to extratropical as it tracked up the Peninsula. The wind field nearly tripled in the process, and it lost its core of intense winds. That spared a smaller part of the Peninsula from intense wind damage but caused the whole peninsula to get moderate to strong TS winds with Cat 1 hurricane gusts. Less severe damage, but over a larger area. Plus, the larger wind field meant a much greater fetch for the onshore winds, increasing the setup tide along the east coast, leading to the flooding. All in all, quite a significant impact to the NE Caribbean, Florida, Georgia and S. Carolina. I'm ready for the season to end now...


I feel like if something's not tropical, it comes across to the public as being "less serious." Like we don't give extratropical cyclones names and I wonder if that makes it sound like they're not dangerous enough to be worth keeping track of. I'm not sure how the meteorology community deals with this. I mean there are some pretty savage nor'easters out there sometimes.

It is finally starting to calm down in Chattanooga now. There are still a few gusts between quiet times. The gusts earlier were about 60 mph, but now they are more like 30 mph. I've been sitting in a den with lots of windows and have been watching the trees swaying in the wind on the eastern facing mountain side. They have been stronger winds than I would have imagined would hit here. It has been a steady rain most of the day.

So, how will the people of Florida react to the next 'biggest, strongest, most intense record breaking storm of all time'?

I will prepare the same way I did for this, Evacuate if they tell me too and make sure that I have prepared as much as possible. We were in the cone the whole time and thanks to Cuba and the track ending up a little east of us we were spared major damage. But still alot of people without power and for who knows how long. Also all you have to do is see the damages in the islands and the keys and place in the early landfall areas and know that this was a serious storm. I sure hope that my fellow Floridians do the same.

WOW! One second later and it probably would have been a fatality. I heard the driver was shaken but is ok.

Still no power and took some damage. 2004 Frances generator is running like a champ! We really got blasted for an eternity. Far worse than forecasted.

I do think the timing of extratropical transition will move up - I would have it at 1800Z yesterday, 15 hours earlier than advisories. But that doesn't make the storm any less hazardous as a lot of wind and surge damage was still ongoing!

stormreader wrote:We didn't seem to have the focal point for sustained winds at landfall in Fl that, for instance, you had with Harvey in Texas. Same intensity with landfall of two storms---Irma in keys (slightly weaker at Marco Island) and Harvey at Rockport. But every storm is different. Harvey was going through a quick intensification cycle, had never yet made a landfall, while Irma was an older storm coming off of many hours over Cuba. So there was no scene in Fl like that of Rockport, Tx damage. However, the size and scope of the storm I found very impressive (80-90 mph) over large areas and for many hours after landfall. Still incredible energy with the storm, but it seemed to be more evenly spread and not quite so focused at the central point.


By relative possibilities of what could have been, I would say overall we dodged a bullet with this storm. Yes it was bad, but not as bad as it could have been.

We had the possibility of a Cat 4/5 landfall in metro Miami and a run along the eastern coast. While the winds and rain are typically on the NE side of storms, due to the sheer size this could have been much worse had it turned sooner, avoiding the weakening of the Cuba landfall, and the 2 day earlier turn would have meant less upper level shear and less cooler air sucked in from the western gulf coast trough. This would have been tragic for Miami and the same or worse for most of the rest of the state, as well as the GA and SC coasts.

I know the NHC has the post tropical center 100 ESE of B'Ham, but the rain field appears to moving westward with an elongated center over Jackson. Rain almost encroaching on extreme NE Texas.

A few notes:

* The peak intensity is increased to 165 kt, based on the highest SFMR reading which I believe was 163 just before hitting Barbuda, and a short gap in data.
* The pre-Recon intensities are increased mostly upwards (except during ERC's) due to the first flight finding higher winds than Dvorak suggested.
* The Keys landfall is lowered to 110 kt (based on Recon data) and mainland landfall increased to 105 kt (based on surface obs and poor Recon sampling near landfall due to RFQ onshore).
* Extratropical transition is pushed up 12 hours based on its structure yesterday afternoon.

I also wonder if the Category Four Keys landfall will be kept in the post-season... I know there was some discussion on here about its intensity. Downgrading a landfall intensity in the post-season seems to be pretty common, with Katrina being the example I remember most. I kind of hope they keep it due to the multiple category four landfall record, but accuracy is better than setting records...

...but still, though, a lot more interesting than the 2013 season.

Not a meteorologist, in fact more of an idiot than anything. You should probably check with the NHC or a local NWS office for official information.

Agreed (and Harvey is definitely staying at cat 4, in fact I'd bump it up to 120 kt), but Irma I think gets decreased at Keys landfall.

Anyone with Orlando news, please let us know.


Here in Orlando to put it bluntly sucks!! No power they say maybe up to 3 weeks!!! Most stores all closed cause no power and the one that are lines go out the doors. Lots of trees damage everywhere and most traffic lights don't work.

Accuracy is better. I wouldn't be surprised if they lowered the Keys landfall to Cat 3. The above post by "Crazy" mentions a 110kt wind at the keys, and that would be strong Cat 3. Think that would be more accurate.
