How much of a jump was that for you Billsfan? I don't keep up with the fluctuations too much since I office out of my home. I don't use a lot of gas.

I too work from home and don't drive much but filled up last weekend and prices were $2.29 at the time.

Harvey was around 938MB at landfall I believe.  How about the GFS down to 908MB with Irma?.  Run is still in the process of finishing up.

I topped off at 2.29 late last week, and it just dropped from 2.24 to 2.19 today. I'll be topping off again tomorrow. Road trip coming at 17 miles per gallon. Wink

I do keep an eye on gas prices. Gas Buddy is a great app. Just on the drive to work, prices can have a 10 cent spread. That's about $2.50 in the pocket. Smile

Good morning. I agree specific tracks don't have much merit at this point. I look for general trends. Over the last couple of days the current trend with the Euro and GFS seems to be pushing further west. We shall see if that continues into the weekend. Interesting times ahead.

Only concern I have, is the models are playing with the idea of a cat-4 or maybe even a cat-5,and since peak of season will be here when Irma gets here...hmmm stay tuned.

Then there is this from Michael Ventrice:  Major development: The best ECMWF EPS members via initialization score are west of ensemble mean track, taking #Irma into the Gulf of Mexico

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DIjz_8LUIAAqx4u.jpg

Those intensity maps are going to go up.  They were initialized when Irma was 60mph.  The most aggressive model didn't have her up to 100mph until 72 more hours.

Hurricane Irma Discussion Number 5...Corrected
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL112017
1100 AM AST Thu Aug 31 2017

Satellite images indicate that Irma is rapidly intensifying.
Very deep convection has formed in the central dense overcast,
which is now displaying a small and clearing eye. Dvorak estimates
were up to 77 kt at 1200 UTC, and since the cloud pattern continues
to quickly become more organized, the initial wind speed is set to
85 kt.

Irma has moved somewhat south of and slower than all of the model
guidance since yesterday. Consequently, it stayed longer over the
warmer ocean temperatures away from the drier air to the north,
possibly allowing the rapid strengthening. Irma should move over
cooler waters tomorrow with some increase in mid-level dry air, so
hopefully the hurricane's intensity will level off by then. In a
few days, the hurricane will be moving over warmer waters with light
shear shown by all of the model guidance. This should promote
further strengthening of Irma, and the NHC forecast shows an
extremely dangerous category 4 hurricane next week, similar to the
solutions provided by the HWRF and the ECMWF models. The intensity
forecast is raised considerably from the previous one due to initial
trends, and is on the high end of the guidance at long range.

The hurricane has turned west-northwestward at about 9 kt. This
motion should continue for the next day or so before a ridge builds
over the central Atlantic Ocean. This ridge should force Irma to
turn westward by the weekend, and west-southwestward early next
week. Guidance continues to trend southward, following the trend of
the ECMWF model starting yesterday. Given the strength of the ridge
and depth of the tropical cyclone, there are no obvious reasons to
discount the anomalous west-southwestward motion seen in most of the
guidance. Little change is made to the track forecast in short
range, but the track is shifted southward and westward at long
range, though not as far southwest as the overnight ECMWF and ECMWF
ensemble models.


FORECAST POSITIONS AND MAX WINDS

INIT 31/1500Z 16.9N 33.8W 85 KT 100 MPH
12H 01/0000Z 17.5N 35.2W 100 KT 115 MPH
24H 01/1200Z 18.0N 37.1W 105 KT 120 MPH
36H 02/0000Z 18.2N 39.2W 105 KT 120 MPH
48H 02/1200Z 18.1N 41.6W 105 KT 120 MPH
72H 03/1200Z 17.0N 46.5W 110 KT 125 MPH
96H 04/1200Z 16.0N 51.0W 110 KT 125 MPH
120H 05/1200Z 16.0N 55.5W 115 KT 130 MPH

Time to use Labor Day sales to inventory and restock your supplies, and start your checklist. Next weekend could be a tad more hectic. At this point, I'm expecting this to be a major that makes at least 1 landfall. I hope I'm wrong.

ok back to todays weather.............NWS MIAMI...Thu Aug 31 2017

...SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE INTERIOR AND GULF COAST...
...HEAT INDEX VALUES FROM 105 TO 109 MOST AREAS...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Thunderstorms: Thunderstorms are possible, mainly this afternoon,
over interior and western sections of South Florida. Lightning will
be the primary threat, although a few thunderstorms may produce
locally heavy rainfall leading to street flooding.

Flooding: Thunderstorms may produce locally heavy rainfall this
afternoon, and could potentially cause street flooding, mainly in the
Naples area.

Temperatures: Heat indices will exceed 105 degrees this afternoon over
much of South Florida, esepcailly in interior Palm Beach and Collier
counties.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY

Thunderstorms are likely Friday and Saturday, mainly during the
afternoons over interior South Florida. Lightning strikes are the
primary threat. A chance of thunderstorms will then continue through
early next week.

Heat index values are expected to exceed 105 degrees over portions of
South Florida Friday and Saturday.

A long period swell arriving along east coast beaches from Friday
through this weekend will increase the rip current risk to at least
a moderate impact during this time frame.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not anticipated at this time.

For more information...visit the National Weather Service in
Miami website at www.weather.gov/miami.

No guarantee it comes close to us. It'll be 5 more days before approaching the Leeward Islands 1500+ miles away. As far as winds, the strongest are in the eyewall. How strong they are beyond depends on the size/structure of the storm at point XYZ. Could be a hurricane 150 miles away bringing you 90mph wind gusts or 40mph wind gusts. Then there's the storm surge impacts for coastal areas based on storm position and wind direction.

Seabreeze starting to fire here. Might get a little relief from the August doldrums that settled in yesterday. Just hit 97 degrees.

Hey all. I don't watch TWC cut my cable. But how can they determine it won't go north? Levi Cowan suggested in his video yesterday that its early and speculating now is foolish. Did TWC say where landfall would be? I've seen models GFS that takes it to PA/NY area. D.C. Would be nice. Main thing is this has to go OTS and we'll deal with the other one behind it.
