Title: Meteorological Banter
Post by: excontradiction on February 28, 2014, 11:53:26 am
Here's the storm hitting California right now.  Equivalent to a Cat1/Cat2 hurricane...headed our way for a messy Monday.

The global warming to climate change seems to me people just grasping at straws. 


I hope we get lots of snow.  A real snow storm like 2009.  I am sick of these little storms week after week.  Give us something with substance.

Unless you're workin' for the govt, I don't think many people get "snow days." However, if they don't grant you the flexibility to work from home, that's a pretty crappy company.

The weather outlook for the eastern U.S. is starting to resemble the plot of a 1970s disaster movie in which everything that could go wrong did.

From the mid-Atlantic to the Northeast, the coastal states have been soaked by rain. While this is happening, Hurricane Joaquin lurks in the shadows, passing over water that is just perfect for it to strengthen explosively. No one can say where it will go.

On top of that, high pressure in Canada and low pressure in the southern U.S. will conspire to slam the surf onto land, eroding beaches and keeping water pinned along the shoreline. As that happens, another round of rain could leave 2.5 inches (6.4 centimeters) in New England to as much as 5 to 8 inches from New Jersey to North Carolina.

As a hydrologist, I cringe every time someone on the news uses "100-year storm" or "1000-year storm".

The 100-year storm is an "exceedance probability", meaning there is a 1 percent chance of a storm of that magnitude occurring in a given year.

Old Elliott City was regrettably built at the confluence of about 5 streams.  Someone has cherry picked a piece of data somewhere in that watershed where 6 inches of rain fell.  A 1000-year event, while technically true, isn't the whole picture.

Yes it floods frequently there.  Development in Howard County most likely makes runoff more intense then it once was.  Climate change is also throwing our statistics out of whack.

Yep.  I felt it and checked USGS.gov.  It was a 4.4 in Dover, about 90 miles away.

[UPDATE] They're calling it a 5.1 now.

At the risk of sounding like a dick, it should be noted that penis-shaped weather maps are actually quite common.
(https://img.huffingtonpost.com/asset/5a5e46191e00003d00c9794f.jpeg?ops=scalefit_720_noupscale)

One woman said, “I’m sick and tired of being promised 6-7 inches and only getting 4!!!” to which another commenter replied, “Well it’s probably because your messing with the wrong weather guy.”

Another guy hoped the storm would prematurely finish and leave people “very unimpressed with the overall experience.”

Other hilarious reactions include:

    “If this storm lasts longer than 4 hours, seek immediate medical attention.”

    “Tennessee says, ‘Not right now Texas I’m tired.’”

    “Don’t expect this storm to pull out quickly...”

    “I guess you could say Mother Nature really has a hard on for the gulf coast lately.”

    “Storms definitely going to penetrate deep down south.”

    “There should always be a warning when it’s more than 6 inches.”

The most philosophical response to the penis-shaped weather map may be one from a woman who wondered how future generations might view it.

“In a few thousand years, some alien historian is going to stumble across this post and read the comments and finally understand, after years of study, exactly how we humans, a clever and able species, managed to let ourselves get caught in another ice age, for we were too busy making dick jokes to flee, and I’m ok with that.”
