    Headline: “Hurricane Dorian lashing the Southeast as it barrels up the coast”

    Why must hurricanes always “barrel”? It seems to me that they move in a rather stately, smooth fashion, not at all banging from side to side unpredictably. They pass across the water as if on roller skates.

    Hurricane Dorian a threat to "the great state of Alabama": Trump. The battle over the weather maps, fake news, and illegal activity.

    God sends the hurricanes and then people pray for God to weaken them, and they weaken!

    It's an interesting cycle.

    Not exactly weather, but...had a small earthquake a few minutes ago. A single sharp jolt. The shake map shows it as a 4.0 with the epicenter about 30 miles inland from here. After a long hiatus subsequent to those big ones up in the Mojave a while ago, it's nice to know the earth is still thinking about us.

    NOAA and the NWS now realize that Hurricane Dorian was a an immediate and terrible threat to Alabama, as the Master Meteorologist intervened to show them the "correct path" that they missed in their amateur approach to serious science. They knelt and kissed the presented ring.......

    We had the most humid weather of the year in late August.

    Dewpoint reached 23°C followed by a high of 31.8°C in late August.

    September is still going humid but dewpoints are around 19°C these days at most.

    This year autumn is coming slightly earlier to the US until the end of September. Then we'll be back to Indian Summer for about a week and a half.

    Watch for the headlines, unseasonably cool and unseasonably hot. The waves bringing this rapidly changing pattern are increasingly more energetic, but it's still not clear and obvious.

    added:
    When I watch a pan of boiling water, if I raise the temperature 1° I don't see any changes. If the temperature was raised 2.5 to 4° you would see changes in the bubbling. I think it will be the same for the atmosphere.

    Once it is boiling it is boiling. How would a 4 degree difference be visible in an already boiling pan of water?

    If the burner under a pan of boiling water is turned up, the water doesn't get any hotter but it boils more vigorously. The difference can be quite visible.

    The bubbles start out small and get larger and more turbulent. We think we see that since 2011 (with El Nino episodes mostly washing out the developments so that they begin again).

    But we aren't boiling. We aren't even a few degrees away from boiling. Or 4 degrees.

    Always the literalist. The Walrus wanted to discuss "Why the sea is boiling hot." So we must be boiling. I saw a winged pig once in a dream.

    Is that what you think I was referring to? Many people have that denier mindset, they can't help it.

    The planet is too big and humans are too puny. "I've looked out my window every day and I've never seen climate change."

    My best friend is a Boeing engineer and you should hear how he talks. No background in climatology but he's so sure there's nothing to worry about. Many predictions have been wrong so therefore the whole outlook is wrong.

    He doesn't have those blinders on when he's talking about topics he understands. It's a curious phenomenon. I think it has something to do what little education we get in meteorology even though it's such a large part of our lives.
