Y'all are lucky to have him. Auburn couldn't afford him. Heh heh.
Free beer and pizza for all members?
why is bashing Joe Bastardi allowed here? what has he done that makes so many hate him with such passion?
Extreme hype and baseless information unless you purchase his weatherbell subscription. He seems to be a zombie for promoting them on twitter and also hyping up every hurricane. Also the paint maps. Some of us here have been on weather boards long enough to know who else liked to make paint maps lol.
What did I miss

TY for the response.....and that is a problem on my side of things, i dont care which person wrote something i only care about the content written.....not here to make friends bash others or any other social goals, just here to find information about weather events and seek the truth.
quite a few posts in the nate thread bash Joe B.....to me a response in the last few minutes also bashed him, having seen Joe B comment for many years the claim he hypes every hurricane is patently false....edited to change my avatar from a 1971 picture from college not college that one was 2 months later in the USAF to a much more recent publicity photo
Lol Joe Bastardi is throwing out the Brazilian model again, for December. Lol.
I'm ready to be tracking winter storms... will admit the tropics have been fun this year. Usually didn't have anything to follow, gave us something to do this year to pass the time.
Agreed, I haven’t been this constantly engaged in the Atlantic hurricane season since the insane 2005 season. I also don’t know what’s scarier the fact that I said Nate would reach 100mph on the bullish side or the fact that I may not have been bullish enough.
serious question, are hurricanes now determined by extrapolating the upper air wind speed down to the ground? i ask because the actual ground readings recently have been nowhere near the claimed sustained winds of the hurricanes.....
gotta remember winds quickly decrease when they hit any kind of structure on land
The max sustained winds are what you experience at the beach
and a lot of times reporting stations lose communications in a hurricane too and stop reporting
i remain confused, help me understand which is it the storms rapidly weaken when they hit land or as YOU and others have been saying this storm will hold its power because it is moving so fast?
This stubborn ridge weather pattern is raising my fears of a 1931-32 winter redux
Dont think ive ever seen a 75 degree low forecast in October. Thats pretty unusual even in July.
What was winter 1931-32 like ?
LIke &%^$, from looking at the NWS climate archive.
Iowa State stuns Oklahoma, at Okie. WOW!
What a finish to the Miami/FSU game !
74 and sunny tomorrow in Denver followed by 4-8" of snow on Monday. Why cant I be there ?

You can! Nothing between you but air and opportunity! Please do!
Wonder if the underwater forest off the AL coast is now buried again.
Probably the most astute thing I have read in months, at least; from Ryan Maue's new website:
Some Weather Services pretend that you can know in the morning where exactly a storm will happen in the afternoon. Or if it will be 50 or 70 degrees 20 days from now. The truth is: they can't. Actually, nobody can. With all those Apps out there pretending a knowledge which doesn't exist in meteorological science, people get frustrated about those weatherpersons. They give us a forecast for our place 2 weeks away, how can they be wrong for the next day?
I invite all to keep this in mind before calling for a torch, calling for an ice age, or calling anything in between ...
I totally agree with you (as usual). Unfortunately, the only weather info most people receive is from these APPs now. I try to tell those closest to me not to base their plans on those APP forecast... even for later the same day. They will tell me "it says we will have a thunderstorm at 3:00 pm today and the rain chance goes to 60% at 2:00, 100% at 3:00 and back down to 20% by 5:00". Then they will make or change their plans based on that. Then, if there is no storm at 3:00 or it is raining at 6:00 they will grumble that all weather people and me are stupid.
I work for a major natural gas transportation pipeline so weather is hugely important to the demand on our system. Unfortunately, decisions are being based off these forecasts and the difference in getting a storm in B'ham or Atl and not getting a storm, especially during the afternoon, can have a huge impact on our daily throughput. A five degree difference in a daily mean temp in these cities can cause a 25% change in usage. Winter can be even worse. Again, "Weather People" get a really bad wrap. Our CEO called me into a meeting while he was here in B'ham for a budget meeting, and asked me what this winter was going to be like. I told him if he could tell me what Stock prices would be next February I would give him a forecast. Fortunately, he laughed, then I told him I thought we would return to a close to normal winter this year. That will still be a good bit colder than the past two. Now I am pulling for Neutral to weak Nina.
Sorry for being long winded, but this subject pushes my buttons.
I really appreciate your post! Publicly - Thanks for chiming in with such great thoughts and humor (about everything except yours truly, which are not deserved). Here's encouraging others to be as realistic based on what we know and more importantly, on what we don't ...
Ncaa rules on North Carolina tomorrow
