HURRICANE EARL DISCUSSION NUMBER 34
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL072010
500 PM EDT THU SEP 02 2010

DATA FROM A RECONNAISSANCE PLANE INDICATE THAT EARL HAS WEAKENED A
LITTLE BIT THIS AFTERNOON. THE CENTRAL PRESSURE ROSE TO 947
MB...AND A BLEND OF THE SFMR MEASUREMENTS AND FLIGHT-LEVEL WINDS
SUGGEST THAT THE INITIAL INTENSITY HAS DECREASED TO 100 KNOTS. EARL
SHOULD CONTINUE TO WEAKEN GRADUALLY AS THE SHEAR INCREASES AND THE
HURRICANE SHOULD WEAKEN EVEN FASTER AFTER 24 HOURS AS IT MOVES OVER
A COLDER OCEAN. AFTER CROSSING CANADA IN 48 HOURS...EARL SHOULD
BECOME POST-TROPICAL/EXTRATROPICAL AND THEN DISSIPATE AS IT IS
ABSORBED BY A MUCH LARGER EXTRATROPICAL CYCLONE.

SATELLITE AND RECONNAISSANCE FIXES SHOW...AS ANTICIPATED...THAT EARL
HAS TURNED NORTHWARD AND IS MOVING 360 DEGREES AT 16 KNOTS. THE
STEERING PATTERN CONTROLLING THE MOTION OF EARL...AND THE
CONSISTENCY IN TRACK GUIDANCE...HAVE BEEN ADEQUATELY DESCRIBED IN
PREVIOUS DISCUSSIONS. EARL IS ABOUT TO BECOME EMBEDDED IN THE
MID-LATITUDE FLOW AND IT IS READY TO GRADUALLY TURN TO THE
NORTH-NORTHEAST AND NORTHEAST WITH AN INCREASE IN FORWARD SPEED.

ALTHOUGH THE MAXIMUM WINDS IN THE CORE HAVE DECREASED...EARL
CONTINUES TO BE A LARGE AND POWERFUL HURRICANE.


FORECAST POSITIONS AND MAX WINDS

INITIAL 02/2100Z 32.5N 75.2W 100 KT
12HR VT 03/0600Z 34.8N 74.8W 95 KT
24HR VT 03/1800Z 38.0N 72.7W 85 KT
36HR VT 04/0600Z 41.7N 69.0W 75 KT
48HR VT 04/1800Z 46.5N 64.5W 50 KT...POST-TROP/EXTRATROP
72HR VT 05/1800Z...DISSIPATED

Great! I hope people do not get complacent, though, just because Earl's eye appears less likely to hit shore. Winds and rain can extend out some 90 miles and the worst damage after the eye passes is around the 10-11 pm position as the wind circulates counterclockwise.

@ossobuco,
Hunkering down along the Broadkill River We are next to Primehook Sanctuary and the flats in Primehook act like big sponges (!0000acres of sponge) so any surge will be soked up and we sit high enough near the dunes .

@Region Philbis,
Be sure you hang on tightly to Jespah. She's a lot lighter on her feet these days and could get blown away very easily.

This shot was taken looking SE from Fort Hill in Eastham, MA at around 10:30 a.m. this morning. We've been having spatterings of rain (not enough to keep us inside at all). We'll eat out and hope to be back home when it starts getting really gusty.

@littlek,
Good wishes K. We had a relatively uneventful run in with Earl. He was a real wimpy kid.

@littlek,
The Weather Channel has been trying to milk some excitement out of this one for the last three days.

The line squalls associated with the oncoming cold front could be more of a problem here and up in our town in PA, but nobody seems to give a crap while this petered out hurricane travels up to Nova SCotia.

Hi, Panzade. I hope that you can join us, in between hurricanes, on my A2K NFL "Pick-um" game which is back for another year. As I recall, you know football.

Hermine has kinda popped up in the GOM all of a sudden. Looks like a big rain event coming to central Texas followed by a swath through the plains. Invest 90 has also formed in the GOM but is not expected to develop beyond a tropical depression.
