Re: Hurricane update: maybe past the wind threat

Thanks Rusty and/or Julie for making me look a little closer at the positions. I re-analyzed those coordinates and times on a map, and it works out to have been about 45 miles west of us as of 2 PM PDT (4 PM La Manz time.) I guess that means that according to the NHC, the center is passing its closest approach to us right about now, not later this evening. |
We still have no rain and just gusty breezes, and the GOES loop still shows no circulating storm pattern. I think at the 11PM EDT update tonight they'll admit that it lost at least its higher altitude circulation, and maybe more.
At this point I don't think it could come back to life for us wind-wise. Rain-wise? Sure; all the moisture that was in Bud is still around, except for what got blown out when it lost its top (according to me.)
I'm not complaining, just because I can't find it anymore!
