re: Hurricane Irma - Spinning Down - baytiger
it's a 500 mb vorticity maximum that is trying to do a pseudo fujiwhara to slingshot the storm north. it doesn't seem like a strong enough feature to steer the storm like the model is suggesting. ...

re: Hurricane Irma - Spinning Down - baytiger
I'm not a huge fan of this run for a few reasons. it starts out by initializing incorrectly and then the storm outruns the ridge but still makes a north turn for some reason. if the upper level scenario in this run plays out, it looks a lot more like a gulf storm than a hard north turn. regardles...

re: Hurricane Irma - Spinning Down - baytiger
the difference is that these are projections 8 days out vs. projections 3 days out for Harvey GFS is notorious for doing crazy things after 120 hours or so. Euro doesn't have anywhere close to these extreme low pressures either....

re: Hurricane Irma - Spinning Down - baytiger
these pressures that the models keep spitting out are super questionable. Run after run the GFS is putting it on the edge of the strongest hurricane ever... and now this? [img]http://i.imgur.com/IUlc7aI.png[/img] it's honestly the lowest pressures I've ever seen over multiple model runs.. I'm...
