Listen: National Hurricane Center, Hurricane Florence and Mark discussed on Red Eye Radio
"Emergencies, and that sort of thing and never realized there are so many people involved in this. And and and Mark the only warning is issued is always issued by offices just like this one in Charleston. In other words, the national offices are not into the granular issuing warnings warnings are locally driven by the conditions observed in their own area using the tools that they have including in particular the Doppler radar. Now, the exception to that would be the National Hurricane Center and they do issue hurricane warnings tropical storm warnings and storm surge warnings. But yes as far as the storm prediction center in Norman and the weather prediction center, they will help us out with the watch situation. And then it's the local offices responsibility issue the warnings and in this case during hurricane Florence the offices in say morehead city and Wilmington North Carolina right now have a lot of active warnings better going on because of the the the flash flood threat, and there have been tornado warnings as well as you folks. Indicated during the broadcast. And in fact, this one was actually issued out of the Raleigh office and that's closer into their area. And that's what we're going to expect the tornadoes are not normally going to be found right near the eye wall. So somebody's looking at a radar on their their my radar on my phone or something they're going to be looking at this. It's going to be further out where we start to get a greater amount of separation, and we actually have more individual cell development that would cause those tornadoes activity, and even then by the time, it's issued it is possibly the threat has gone. It's not like these tornadoes that we see in the wizard of Oz that are there across the ground for for things like ever. Absolutely, correct. He's a very fast moving tornadoes. They typically around the grab for a very brief period of time. The signatures that that the local. Oh meteorologist look for on the radar typically developed very very quickly and then dissipate very very quickly. So that the the trick is the the catch them early and try to get those warnings out advanced. But it's very very challenging gets a very unique challenge in tropical tropical meteorology is is getting those tornado warnings out on those outer bands. And and as you indicated earlier, you know, moving at forty five miles per hour that that's not something you see, and you know, every cold front and every little pressure system that produces tornadoes in the United States. It's a really unique environment. Well, and in fact, I was reading this bulletin Justice. It came out and when I got down to the bottom and the line was moving west at forty five miles an hour. I had a hard time not stopping and going. Oh my goodness. You know? And that's something. I'm not used to seeing all the time. That's that's right. And that that's the challenge because when we get the radar. Data in."
