Listen: National Hurricane Center, Hurricane Florence and Norman discussed on Red Eye Radio
"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 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 and that's closer into their area. And that's what we're going to expect. You know, the tornadoes are not normally going to be found right near the eye wall. So somebody's looking at the 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 tornado activity, and even then by the time, it's issued it is possibly the 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 veterans like ever. Absolutely, correct. He's a very fast moving tornadoes. They typically are on the ground for a very brief period of time. The signatures that that the local. 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 and try to get those warnings out advanced, but it's very very challenge. It 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 just as 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 non 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 even when we're raising. Our our rapid scan mode sales is what we like to call it. We get data in every two minutes and these things occur so quickly that sometimes the critical processes are actually occurring between that two minutes. So we'll get an image.."
