      Re: Hurricane Dean!

      If yu connecting to Hotlanta from somewhere else it would be rough for you if Dean hit or passed nearby as forecasted on Sunday.
      I can only hope Dean doesnt come too close so that you can land in Jamaica on Monday

      Thats about as best near to God I can get.
      Let freedom and peace abide, the sun shine, and your love beside me with you everytime.

        keep ear out for the phone... </div></div>

        Slows down, no Nina. The longer it hangs the more damage potentially. The speed it moves is different than the speed of the winds that circulate. </div></div>

        excuse my fopah.. how do you spell that?? not slow down to do damage.. i mean the catergory be diminished... either way.. not near you or jamaica.. or any one else either....
        A positive attitude might not solve your problems but will annoy others to make it worth the effort

              If the forecast holds the storm will move west by Monday.
              Sangster should reopen soon. Manley will too if the Palisadoes road is not mash up again like after Ivan. And that's hard to predics.

The upper level winds must be pretty strong and without much shear in order to keep the storm developing while maintaining it's speed.

                And that only makes it worse. Not only less time to prepare for Dean, but also more wind intensity.

                If the hurricane has 100mph sustained winds, and it's moving at 23mph, the ppl get lick with 123mph winds. </div></div>

                Thats sounds more logical if there`s a direct hit with the eye passing directly over. The sustained winds I thought were only those that the pangs in circulation spun at. </div></div>

                The storms in the Northern Hemisphere spin counter-clockwise (just like the joggers in your park Q) hmmm. I wonder if joggers in the souther hemisphere jog clockwise like their cyclones? [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70402-thinking.gif[/img] Cha! off topic.

                The stronger the storm, the more defined and larger the "eye" there is little wind in the eye. The eye wall is where the strongest winds are in the hurricane. As you move away from the eye, the winds diminish.

                So if the storm is coming East-West, and you are North if the eye, you will get a higher wind speed due to it's movement (100+23=123)
                If you in to the South of a Westbound sotrm you will get less wind (100-23=77)

                There are countless other factors involved too. For example squall lines of 'embedded' thundersotrms will add to the storm's power. Topography plays a large part too. Mountains will 'compress' the storm on the windward side and speed up the winds. The leeward side will enjoy calmer conditions.
                Land will diminish the storm's power, but if it is a large land mass. Small flat islands have little effect, large flat islands or mountainous islands will disrupt it more.

                The hurricane feeds on warm poist air, and is sustained by lack of shear in the upper atmosphere and steered by winds aloft.
                To break up a storm it must encounter cold water, large land mass, or wind shear on a large scale.
