Irene continues to weaken

Satellite data and measurements from the Hurricane Hunters show that Irene continues to weaken. A 1:32 pm EDT center fix by an Air Force Reserve aircraft found that Irene's eyewall is still gone, and the central pressure had risen to 951 mb from a low of 942 mb this morning. The winds measured in Irene near the surface support classifying it as a strong Category 1 hurricane or weak Category 2. Satellite imagery shows a distinctly lopsided appearance to Irene's cloud pattern, with not much heavy thunderstorm activity on the southwest side. This is due to moderate southwesterly wind shear of 10 - 20 knots. This shear is disrupting Irene's circulation and has cut off upper-level outflow along the south side of the hurricane. No eye is visible in satellite loops, but the storm's size is certainly impressive. Long range radar out of Wilmington, North Carolina, shows that the outermost spiral bands from Irene have moved ashore over North Carolina. Winds at buoy 41004 100 miles offshore from Charleston, SC increased to 47 mph, gusting to 60 mph at 3 pm EDT, with significant wave heights of 25 feet.


Figure 1. MODIS satellite image of Hurricane Irene taken at 11:50 am EDT Friday August 26, when Irene was a Category 2 hurricane with 105 mph winds. The eyewall collapsed several hours before this image was taken, and no eye is apparent. Image credit: a href=http://rapidfire.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/gallery/ NASA.


Figure 2. Distribution of Irene's wind field at 3:30 pm EDT Friday August 26, 2011, as observed by the Hurricane Hunters and buoys. The right front quadrant of the hurricane had about 90% of the storm's hurricane-force winds (yellow and warmer colors, bounded by the heavy black line between the "50" and "60" knot thin black lines.) Tropical storm-force winds (heavy black like bounding the light blue area) extended out 290 miles from the center of Irene. Image credit: NOAA/AOML/HRD.

Forecast for Irene
With its eyewall collapsed and just 18 more hours over water before landfall, Irene does not have time to build a new eyewall and intensify. The storm is too large to weaken quickly, and the best forecast is that Irene will be a strong Category 1 hurricane at landfall in North Carolina on Saturday. Based on the latest wind analysis from NOAA's Hurricane Research Division (Figure 2) and Irene's continued weakening trend, I predict that the 80-mile section of North Carolina coast to the right of where Irene makes landfall will receive sustained hurricane-force winds of 75 - 85 mph on Saturday at landfall; the 80-mile section of coast to the left will receive 55 - 75 mph winds. High wind shear of 30 knots will begin ripping into Irene Sunday morning when it is near Southern New Jersey, and more rapid weakening will occur. By the time Irene arrives on Long Island Sunday afternoon, it will probably have top sustained winds in the 65 - 75 mph range. However, since Irene is such a huge storm--tropical storm force winds extend out up to 290 miles from the center--it has set a massive amount of the ocean's surface in motion, which will cause a much larger storm surge than the winds would suggest. At 3:30 pm EDT this afternoon, a wind analysis from NOAA/HRD (Figure 2) indicated that the potential storm surge damage from Irene still rated a 5.0 on a scale of 0 to 6. This is equivalent to the storm surge a typical Category 4 hurricane would have. While this damage potential should steadily decline as Irene moves northwards and weakens, we can still expect a storm surge one full Saffir-Simpson Category higher than Irene's winds when it impacts the coast. Since tides are at their highest levels of the month this weekend due to the new moon, storm surge flooding will be at a maximum during the high tidal cycles that will occur at 8 pm Saturday night and 8 am Sunday morning. Wherever Irene happens to be at those times, the storm surge damage potential will be maximized. I continue to give a 20% chance that a 3 - 4 foot storm surge high enough to over-top the Manhattan flood walls and swamp the New York City subway system will occur on Sunday. The latest 11 am probabilistic storm surge map from NHC shows a 20 - 30% chance of a storm surge in excess of 3 feet in New York Harbor (Figure 4.) Keep in mind that these maps are calculated for normal tide level, and this weekend's high tides will be nearly 1 foot above normal.

Insurance company AIR-Worldwide is estimating that insured damages from Irene in the U.S. will be $1.5 - $6 billion. They estimate losses in the Caribbean at $0.5 - $1.1 billion from Irene.

Once the surge inundates,,above ones ability to remain higher,,well...one may have a difficult time surviving the Surge and winds.

Mr Guerra explains it well during the last min of this one from 6 years ago Monday.

Video taken by Guerra Family during/after Hurricane Katrina. Chalmette, La.




man...i cant believe how after all these years, how much seeing that tears me up. I wasnt there for Katrina...had just moved to FL...but I was so devastated to see what happened and couldnt do anything directly to help. One of my best friends lived right near where that video was taken, might even be the same neighborhood. Oh man...that surge is what you gotta watch out for....that's the killer.
Being here in FL, I have no concerns about that here...but...blegh...cant talk about it anymore lol

Thanks, Patrap. It's good to remember. and never forget.

Hi. First time poster longtime lurker, and I don't want to start with an argument, but my sister is an EMT in a coastal NC County, and attitudes like the one above endanger her life. Mandatory evacuation means get the hell out. Not get out if you feel like it. Not get out if you're not an old timer who thinks he knows more than the actual meteorologists. Get out. And if you don't, you shouldn't expect emergency workers to do more than fish your waterlogged corpse out of the bay.

Get it, but F2 and F3 tornados have hit down town high rises in Atlanta and Dallas and no real loss of life. These strikes were much more intense and worse than cat 1 winds and perhaps TS winds by the time it even gets there. Again, if he is going to scare everyone, where does he expect them to go.

If they were intellectually honest, they would mention that high rises have sustained direct hits by tornadoes and survived. They just conveniently leave out objective details and play on the subjective.

Definitely not 12 mph here...More like 32 mph. We've been having some really strong gusts that has to be over 50 MPH.

Dont focus on the SSS Cat Number, focus on the size of these Bands in this LARGE Hurricane.

Its the overall IMPACT that counts, not max winds speeds or a silly outdated method of Wind Loading on Structures.

The Impact is going to be severe over a wide area and up the Coast thru New England

Hey guys I just heard something interesting on TWC and was hoping someone can confirm or dispute it. They say starting this year storm surge values given is how much the surge will go up on top of the land, not just how high the sea level will raise. Is this true? If so this 3 feet storm surge is actually pretty bad.


Anyone?

As I have mentioned several times, there has been no Nor'Easters (not NorEasterners) that have produced sustained high end tropical storm force winds/cat 1 hurricane force winds in NYC. While I don't doubt most skyscrapers will easily withstand this hurricane, I personally would not want to be in them. The winds will be increased one full category at those high elevations, for one thing.

I have an acquaintance who lives in midtown on the 18th floor of her building. She insisted she would be fine! If the windows break, she can go stand in the hallway! I just. God. There was NO getting through to her about winds, the basement flooding, living days without power or water, nothing. Just the thought of being on the 18th floor in a swaying tower makes me seasick! I have no idea what she's going to do. I'm hoping she decides on a quick trip upstate.

Pine trees do indeed snap...and they are very vulnerable to uprooting.

Do not confuse them with spruces...spruces are much better at structural integrity and they have deeper roots.

The only thing worse than Pines for breakage and damage are silver maples....

Although I would assume most people on here have neither silver maples or spruces ;).

I hate removing trees too but when it comes to pines, silver maples, etc., it has to be done.

Quoting ConnecticutWXGuy:


speaking of being honest, an F-1 tornado struck portions of NYC a couple years ago and busted out the windows of at least 2 high rises that I saw. Nearby in Scarsdale, NY an F-0 also busted out windows of high rises None of the sky scrapers in NYC would survive and F2 and definitely not an F3 tornado. If those high elevations manage to see 90MPH gusts, I guarantee you there will be windows busted.


May be, but F1 can be as high as intense focused 110 mph winds and then multiplied by venturi. Is he saying there will be intense focused 110 mph winds in NYC??? Older building obviously have more serious issues, but he was talking high rises. Westin in Atlanta lost some windows also from a stronger tornado.

The point is, report the facts. the facts are, high rises are built to withstand higher winds then perhaps homes. High rises have taken direct hit from tornados and been okay. Sustained winds with this storm are not likely to be be an intense as tornadoes.

Cantori talking about right now about windows in high rises and now dude talking about venturi. Telling people to get to lower floors which is contrary to what someone else just responded. Usually hear them tell people to just stay away from windows and get toward center of building if tornado. Again, where do they expect people to go and do they really think high rises are going to see more damage than weaker built low rise structures???

Yes, they do. I live in an upland pine ecosystem. Lots of longleaf pine and scrub oak. Back in 2004, you can see where the winds came through by where the pines were snapped off.

I THINK THIS MORNING THE PRESSURE WAS 936MB AND NOW ITS 950MB...THIS STORM HAS REALLY FALLEN APART SINCE THIS MORNING..ITS A WONDER THEY CANT FIND AND EYE THE STRUCTURE REALLY LOOKS BAD AND THE CONVECTION HAS TAPERED OFF QUITE A BIT....WHEN AND IF IT GETS TO LONG ISLAND IT MAY BE A TROPICAL STORM BY THEN...I GUESS ALL THE DRY AIR THAT WAS STILL ENTRAINED IN THE SYSTEM THANKS TO THE ULLOVER THE SE GOM...I REALLY CANT SEE HOW THIS IS GOING TO BE CATASTROPHIC FOR ANYONE...TWC NEEDS TO CALM DOWN A LITTLE AND STOP SCARING PEOPLE...


Quit with the annoying caps... most people, me included, don't even read stuff that is in all caps because it usually means the person is just trying to get attention - furthermore they usually don't have anything useful to say.
