Snow, Heat, and Earl?????

I was looking at the tracking, and wondered if Hurricane Earl was going to be the next weather related story of 2010. We've had snow galore, heat in June, and now this guy looks mighty fierce:


Are any of you richmond/va/OBX (lol) guys hearing any rumblings about how Earl might affect you?

Re: Snow, Heat, and Earl?????

I know my sister is about to start freaking out. Her wedding is on Saturday right on the Chesapeake. I'm sure we'll be okay but its got to be making her nervous.

Anyway, good luck to those right on the coast this week!

Hmmmmmm, my sister-in-law on Long Island was talking about coming here to PA because Hurricane Earl is heading there.

Since we support a couple of the localities in the VB area, we're getting our folks geared up for a potentialy long night on Thursday and making sure our contingency plans are set. Hopefully it's just a fire drill and the thing stays off shore.

Re: Snow, Heat, and Earl?????

I usually bounce between NWS and this site: HAMweather - Bringing Weather to Your Web for my weather info. Here is their graphics and info on Earl: HAMweather Tropical Center: Hurricane Earl Track



From the models, it's safe to say Earl will nip the Outer Banks before heading northeast, and those between Virginia Beach and Cape Cod will get some heavy winds and rain at some point between Thursday and Sunday. There were earlier models tracking Earl to run over the Delmarva Peninsula and pick up moisture from the Chesapeake, which would have been very messy.

BreakingNews is the tweeter service that I follow. They send out news updates pretty quickly but I am sure if you are right there you here it a lot faster.

Oh TWC? They'll blame it all on global warming soon enough.

My father went down yesterday to tie up everything (grill, pic nic table, kayake,). We are in Rodanthe, and he said to the traffic going leaving was bumper to bumper leaving...he cut through NC and came up 95 instead of 168. Folks down there I think are going have a time with this one. The surf last weekend was almost to the main dune on beach already...

Nice, yeah there is mobile gas station/coveniance stop along the beach road around milepost 8 I like to stop at and grab beer (good selection) and they make pretty kick ass subs too. Also Pigman BBQ around mile post 8 is freakin my favorite. Pigmens also has some Skins stuff hanging up inside as well, pretty f'in cool. So driving in im always stopping round there.

It was projected to hit Long Island and Cape Cod...possibly continue to Nova Scotia!

Does seem a little premature, but hey...better than Louisiana's State reponse.

Re: Snow, Heat, and Earl?????

Yeah that's it.

I saw later the expected track of the storm, and they had hurricane force storms going right over Long Island/cape cod (must be God's judgement on the liberal northeast!). Originally I thought Earl was supposed to turn back out to see
