Here’s tonight’s Serious Business/Charleston Weather show concerning Gustav and Hanna. I’ll have a lot more on Hanna as the week goes on as it has a decent chance of causing some inclement weather in Charleston by the end of the week.
I’m in the midst of getting ready for Serious Business tonight — lots going on. First, the 5PM track for Hanna takes the storm — with significant uncertainty — just south of Savannah Friday afternoon as a Category 1 hurricane. However, it’s far too early to tell exactly where or when or how strong it […]
Before I hit the sack, I wanted to bring folks up to speed about my latest thoughts on Gustav and Hanna. First, Gustav. Gustav emerged off the coast of Cuba at roughly 11:30 or so and promptly started trying to get its act back together. It looks like it’s in the middle of an eyewall […]
Unsurprisingly, Serious Business tomorrow night will be almost entirely devoted to not just Gustav’s impending landfall but also talking about Tropical Storm Hanna and its potential impact on the East Coast later this week. Be sure to join me at 8:30 Eastern tomorrow night!
Major Hurricane Gustav is closing in on Category 5 status very quickly, raking Cuba and giving Key West quite a blustery time in the process. As of the 5 PM advisory, Gustav’s packing 150 MPH sustained winds, making it an intense Category 4, and is moving to the northwest at 15 MPH. This puts the […]
There’s a lot of eyes on Hurricane Gustav this weekend, and rightfully so — it’s become a Category 3, 125 MPH beast, and the forecast just does not look good for Texas and Louisiana around, unfortunately, New Orleans. Gustav appears to be in position to make this Labor Day weekend a very memorable one for […]
A very ragged Tropical Storm Hanna was classified at 11am by the National Hurricane Center. Hanna — aka Tropical Depression 8 and Invest 95L — has never been a great-looking storm as it’s been fighting some shear, and it’s definitely been torn to shreds even more as the day goes on. But Hanna’s been a […]
I woke up, went scrolling through my Twitterstream and caught this post by Brian Neudorff — it looks like Tropical Depression 8 has been classified from the former Invest 95L, and this is definitely one for us in Charleston to watch. Models seem to have it taking a southerly dive (!) but again, models have […]
The last time I spoke of Gustav, it was a rapidly intensifying tropical storm at 60 MPH; it eventually became a hurricane and made landfall on Haiti as a high Category 1 storm. Haiti’s terrain has subsequently torn the storm apart. As of 11:00PM, it’s only packing 45 MPH winds. Pressure’s up significantly to 999 […]
After one of the more interesting and eventful summer “breaks” (and by “break” I mean “I’m not in class”) I’ve had in recent years, today marks the first day of the fall semester at the College of Charleston. Most notably, it’s my last semester as an undergraduate. This day’s come about two or three years […]
