"Things up in earnest when you get into august through early october. So i think we're seeing what would be typical and i think we're just coming off such a hyperactive season. It just felt weird not to have somebody storms in july. Because it's been so busy for so many years so the the big message is here. We're coming into the peak. And i think you know we start getting through august and getting the september. We've the peak yet to come for the hurricane season for know twenty one so that's why preparedness is everything and getting ready for it and you mentioned elsa an interesting point. There was a lot of social media about hurricane versus a tropical storm. And you know we had some radar data in the aircraft found those winds. It didn't last long so much on it. And i hope everybody can help us. Spread the word on this. The difference between a tropical storm in a hurricane one mile an hour And again we're standard of science but at the same time it's interesting how the word hurricane Really prop so much attention versus tropical storm. There is no such thing as just a tropical storm. And you and i talked about the war would meet illogic organization. I have a lot to do with as chair. That committee You know th they'll never be named justa. We'll never have a hurricane. Just will never have probably just a picture of that. But the point is it's about the impacts and is so important hurricane tropical storm trump alison. I mean i think of i. I look at history. Tropical storm produces ten foot storm. Surge and fifteen twenty inches of rain. I don't care what the name is. That's a big impact. And you gotta be ready for that i. I'm so glad you mentioned that because it right. I mean strong tropical storm. We can't one the impact the same. And so i'm and that was definitely a message. I was trying to amplify on your behalf as well. Because i see so. Many people get riled up hurricane or it doesn't the impacts really what matter at the end of the day. One one thing that comes to mind about twenty twenty and twenty twenty one and particularly. We're seeing spikes is the hurricane tropical storm risk superimposed on a pandemic Are there are there things that you've as the national hurricane center director thinking about concert with the director of fema emergency management folks Even even if we see fred approaching perhaps florida Depending on what happens that moves over hispaniola. I have to imagine that there are some thinking going on about covert and evacuation and shelters and so forth. How are you dealing with that. I think the pandemics made the pressure on us to to to have a good forecast is is never been higher. Be and the reason. I say that is the fact that you know if you're in that evacuation zones the with storm surge. You gotta get out there. There's just no pandemic or not if you have a big storm surge headed your weight you and get out now the planning and where you go change and you know the the sheltering part of it that emergency managers deal with the pressure comes here if you don't have to have to evacuate. We wanna make sure we're accurate enough that the decision could be made not to evacuate and that was in the case of of hurricane laura when some of the modeling was well to the west. And we were you know. We didn't want we didn't think it would ever get over to a situation where houston would have to go because you're dealing with a pandemic and if they don't have to it's okay we don't want them to so luckily we the scientists better that we could really narrow that down Better than ever. so yes the exercises. Have taken into account The pandemic we've changed things here to dr shopper. We everything you saw last year with the masks. Lots of opinions on that by the way So i mean we. We're small place. We have eleven hurricane specialists and we have the tropical forecast branch in the people that have visited this building. It's not big. So we we we had we had cohort scheduling where pairs of to work together and they didn't see the other the whole season Some of the shift changes occurred from the building and out in the parking lot behind me. we did everything to keep ourselves safe. Because you know the nation's counting on us to keep them safe so we took that very serious Here we actually take that still remains on the floor that when there's somebody on duty at the desk no one's allowed to step inside that tape So it's interesting how it changed. How do business on maroon t managers and it is part of the decision making process with with the pandemic and safety. So i think we feel the pressure more than ever. We're up to it. We really are up to to make sure we get a good forecast out there so we can help the decision making you know. Last question is really contemporary. Because we just had the latest. Ipcc report come out and of course it says some things. About extreme events particularly hurricanes. Tropical cyclone does this factor in any whammy. You are weather agency for the most part and you know i know for a fact but someone twitter. Sometimes people struggle with the difference between weather and climate. Because you'll see people say hey. It's cold today. That means climate change is real right that whether in climate but do you see a report like the ipc and have implications for how you think about things hurricane center. Yeah i think. I think we're we're definitely more short fused generally than that here at the hurricane center. But now you look at the data. I mean all you do is take a query on the database right and look at look at trends and you know. There's there's been this discussion about the number of hurricanes. Well tough correlation. They are right. We we were seeing more than ever. We're we're also we're also going after some of those sloppier peski or storms that form right off the coast and so the actual number is hard to correlate to anything because we're actually seeing more so that's not the that's not the conversation there really isn't but the trend that has the conversation a couple things one warm atmosphere more rain. You know. we're we're seeing some pretty big rain events From these systems not just on the coast but well inland. It's just physics or rousers a whole more water. You're going to get more rain. Yeah it is and the other trend. That's interesting. I know you've seen it. There is a trend over the last century. We're getting some stronger storms. And you know you look at the number of cat fours and fives that we have. There's an increasing number of some of these strong storms. And i think that's something to consider into the future as well. You got more energy you can get stronger. Storms and the rapid tests. Vacation dr shepper. We had nine. Tropical cyclones in two thousand twenty have rapid intensification nine. And that's what we're talking. You're talking thirty knots of wind increase in twenty four hours things cranking fast and it's hard to keep up with that so And then we'll see what sea level rise and it's not a direct correlation love arise and storm surge. It's it's highly variable some places. Get the same someplace. Get more But i do see trend. That could push that storm surge farther inland. So that's that's the long term when you look at you know hurricanes you look at where we're headed and what we're going to be dealing with those some things that keep in our minds and we do get ready for that and that's why we some more research to that rapid intensification and i know for us here in georgia. You know with hurricane michael. We had a storm that was gusting hundred mph winds well into our agricultural regions in the.

"Some ideas there. We are toying with the idea of a dynamic cone. The part dr shepherd. You didn't ask but it's related is what do we do at the seven day forecast. Yes we're internal but what what do you do with a cone. Excuse me what do you do with a cone. That's eight hundred miles wide. How do you make any any decision. Based on that outside of oil. I better keep an iron on this so we wanted to a seven day forecast but should it be in. The come should be doing a different way. We actually don't have the answer to that but were or help. Hope is social science. Also that With the category. It's interesting because you look at a hurricane florence when when you're you're decreasing in category and there's a tendency to relax when the impacts never changed the storm surge. Forecast never changed. The rainfall forecasts never changed none of that change but the category served a good in hurricane. Michael where we were coming up. The categories of people like whoa. This is the wrong direction. I better pay attention so it becomes really really complicated and and was storm surge. It's it's the size and the speed. It's not even the category that that's the main factor in the storm surge tonight there's so many examples of you can have a category four or five storm small but it's fast that produce less storm surge than a giant category one That's moving slow. You get more storm surge pilot bigger area so it's incredibly complicated. What we've done so far as we've just tried to separate those impacts we have a storm surge washington warning we focus so much on storm surge half the fatalities historically have storm surge. I think we're making a dent by the way you have search products right. We're making a dent. I you look back. I have a little stat here. That i think you'll find interesting since twenty seventeen. I'm reading it. 'cause i don't want mess it up. Fourteen hurricane landfalls six were major. This is the united states. The busy it's crazy. Busy says twenty seventeen We've had a lot of fatalities but in the end Very few were storm surge. And and if you think about it and there's been more with carbon monoxide poisoning that actually storm surge. I think we're making a debt but we don't want it is still the biggest threat but i think we're making a dent in that. So are there better ways. We're working on it and we're hopeful. I reach articles. I listened to all the input. I see out there. There's plenty.

And some homes in eastern Connecticut have dealt with power outages, but in the aggregate, I would say in the last few days Ever source who was a major power company here said that they expected up to 69% of their customers could lose power. The actual numbers in the last hour that I've looked only around 2%. So certainly some good news there and that maybe the storm wasn't as bad as something and expected it to be. Well. That's good news. So the National Hurricane Center called for strong, gusty winds and flooding ahead of the storm. How are the roads looking now in Connecticut? Yeah, So right now, there's actually a soft rain falling in Hartford, the capital. So as I was down in southeast Connecticut on the shoreline, uh, earlier today in the afternoon, it was actually sunny and the roads were dry so Now as it's moving through Connecticut.

"To 25 named storms, of which 7 to 11 are expected to become hurricanes. And 326 of those could become major hurricanes. And Yeah, if you take a look at the Hurricane center map as well, we got like that conveyor belt affect going on. You know, the two busiest weeks of the year happen to be into September, the September 10th historically has been the single most active day, ironically enough. Hurricane Irma happen to be on September 10. But if you take a look in the last two weeks of August, the first two weeks of September peak hurricane seasons that were in it, and it certainly looks like that. And of course, we know that we are in store for an above average season to begin with. So here to talk about all this and, you know, get to get a read on how technology is changing our understanding of the storms. Dan Lindsay, he is a Noah scientists. You may fall him at Dan. Lindsay 77. Dan, How you doing today? Hi. Good morning, doing great. You know, I want to start had this conversation with Dennis Belkin last year, the single most impressive thing I've seen put out by the Hurricane Center. Was a disturbance over the Tennessee Valley. This is one the earlier storms last year and we never before had we seen something on the hurricane centers. Of, you know, Forecast start in the Tennessee Valley. But technology was so good. That the Hurricane center realized that this this weather system in the Tennessee Valley is going to head south, and when it doesn't hits the gulf, it's likely to develop ensure enough and became a hurricane in the gulf. And that was about 3 to 4 days in advance of it happening. Tell us a little bit about how Your work and technology is is changing the dynamic in our understanding of of weather and what's planned for Yeah, that That was a really impressive example of how far our forecast models have come. You're right. You know, anytime you can get something like that correct, something unusual like that correct Three or four days in advance is pretty incredible. And there's a number of reasons for this. The models themselves have improved. But one important aspect is the the satellite data that feeds the models, and that's the area that I work in with. We have a number of different satellites. I'm Noah that are feeding information into the models, and they do things like measure the wind speeds within existing storms. They tell you where the storms are located, and all of that information from the satellites and other data to is fed into the models, which in turn improves the forecasts. And so that probably played a role in that example that you that you brought up from last year. And then we take a look. You know the the improvement over the recent years with this technology and the forecast path we know the cone has narrowed up. We know the accuracy within that cone has improved, so we're even five days out over two thirds of the time. A storm will pass somewhere within that by day Cone range and we also see even when we have just these disturbances. A five day tropical weather outlook that didn't use to exist is all this part of this advanced technology and as you're able to find accuracy within what you're working on, you just introduce that into the information is made available. Yes, Yeah, There's a lot of different pieces that have to come together to improve that were cast and allow us to go out five days and like I said, it's you know, it's a combination of things The models themselves are becoming more sophisticated. One of the main models is known as the Hurricane Worth, or H W A R F model. Just this year For the first time, they're five different satellite NOAA satellites that air feeding data into that model there. The two goes East and West satellites a couple of polar orbiting satellites in the cosmic to all of this for the first time going into the model this year, and an early indications are that that is actually improved, providing.

"Watching Joanna briefly mentioned yesterday a bigger concern will be very low pressure that is probably going to be non tropical don't have enough time to get into that discussion but all the hurricane center does have its eyes on this area of low pressure that sits down to our south and southeast just off shore and they're actually putting the percentages of developing a into a tropical or non tropical storm at about thirty percent it's just off the coast here sitting between the U.
