As an Andrew, it really isn't that cool to be remembered for a storm that sank someone's boat, tore their home apart or cost a friend or family member their life.hate to say this.. but cool. As an Arthur I was always bummed that the hurricane's named after me went out to sea and fizzled.
For the rest of the world.. be safe out there!
This storm is sucking up its energy/moisture from WARM Gulf Stream. Its precisely following 'the stream'.Isn't conventional wisdom that after a cold winter that was MISERABLE up here, that the hurricanes would stay away..the water's too cold.
Let's hope this Arthur fizzles out. Some of the spaghetti plots go through my back yard, and I'm not liking that at all.
Good luck to all in the path..be safe.
NHC website is showing Storm Warning for NC and Hurricane Watch for NC. Possible you misinterpreted the Blue Storm Warning for removal of the Pink (hurricane watch). The Blue pretty much blotches out the pink.NOAA has downgraded the hurricane watch in NC to a storm watch, unless the path veers west or the wind field widens. Heaviest winds still on the east side.
That's exactly what i'm seeing too. The Hurricane Watch on the NC coast is still in effect... but they added the Tropical Storm Warning on top of it. I'm trying to figure out if i should haul out or not (Oriental) as staying at my particular pier is not the best option because my bow is not pointed towards the wind and waves in situations like this... we get broadsided at the pier. After Irene i'm not sure i want to take the risk. I realize this is not a situation like Irene though. Hmmm....NHC website is showing Storm Warning for NC and Hurricane Watch for NC.

I feel sorry for the people that lost loved ones and property, but still… As a Len I was amused by hurricane Lenny.As an Andrew, it really isn't that cool to be remembered for a storm that sank someone's boat, tore their home apart or cost a friend or family member their life.
I was going by their written statement, not a graphic.k guidance,
the official forecast is similar to the previous one. Given the new
NHC forecast, only a tropical storm warning has been issued for the
coast of North Carolina. However, any deviation to the left of the
forecast track or an increase in the size of the wind field would
require the issuance of a hurricane warning for all or part of the
area under hurricane watch. - Forecast Discussion #7
Boy, that really sucks. Hope they make it in before they intersect the storm. Some of the older boats are not very fast.I was just looking at Marine Traffic . Com and noticed that many of the Newport/Bermuda boats are returning home. It looks like there are a few stragglers that have about 150 miles or more to go. Talk about timing.
