The official tropical weather thread 2018

Postby TriP » April 8th, 2018, 10:19 am

The 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season begins on June 1st but already the list of 21 storm names
have been revealed.

So far, the 2018 hurricane season is exhibiting characteristics similar to 1960, 1967, 1996, 2006 and 2011.”

And the years 1960, 1967 and 2006 had near-average Atlantic hurricane activity, while 1996 and 2011 were both above-normal hurricane seasons.

I think the suns sub-solar point should be passing over Trinidad today.

The subsolar point is where its sun is perceived to be directly overhead (in zenith); that is where the sun's rays are hitting the planet exactly perpendicular to its surface creating weird shadow effects

I guess its only for hazardous weather as opposed to a little rain- then again even a 'little' rain should trigger a flash flood warning for South Quay :roll:

they should have an Emergency Alert System like in the US to broadcast alerts via various mediums- it automaticallt breaks into tv/radio programming, unlike the TV station waiting hours to tell you a warning in effect

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emergency_Alert_System#Incidents

Emergency Alert System
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Emergency Alert System (EAS) is a national warning system in the United States put into place on January 1, 1997 (approved by Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in November 1994),[1] when it replaced the Emergency Broadcast System (EBS), which in turn replaced the CONELRAD System. The official EAS is designed to enable the President of the United States to speak to the United States within 10 minutes.[2] In addition to this requirement, EAS is also designed to alert the public of local weather emergencies such as tornadoes and flash floods (and in some cases severe thunderstorms depending on the severity of the storm). The most recent National EAS Test was performed on September 27, 2017 at 2:20 pm EDT (11:20 am PDT).[3]

EAS is jointly coordinated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the National Weather Service (NOAA/NWS). The EAS regulations and standards are governed by the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau of the FCC. EAS has become part of Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS), a program of FEMA.

EAS messages are transmitted via AM, FM, broadcast television, cable television and Land Mobile Radio Service, as well as VHF, UHF, and FiOS (wireline video providers). Digital television, satellite television, and digital cable providers, along with Sirius XM satellite radio, IBOC, DAB, smart phones and digital radio broadcasters, have been required to participate in the EAS since December 31, 2006.[4] DirecTV, Dish Network, and all other DBS providers have been required to participate since May 31, 2007.

In 2008, the FCC began work on another system for public alerting designed and targeted at smartphones, meant to support the EAS. The Commercial Mobile Alert System (now Wireless Emergency Alerts) made its debut in about early 2013 in select states for select events. While this system functions independently from the Emergency Alert System, it may broadcast identical information.

u dont find odpm updates while the storm going on is efficient enough?

i mean, last year, the only time they opted to issue a warning in good time before the event, the event didnt happen after all.

I guess it's just seasonal. Usually from Christmas we get cooler nights for about 3 months and then is back to the heat

It supposed to be an EARLY warning system. Last year a Tropical Storm warning was issued by the Met Office 6pm the day before Bret, but there was nothing about it for about 15-18 hrs on local TV till the afternoon. The system in the US INTERUPTS all transmissions in some way. Now Bret wasn't a big deal for us if we only had a few hrs warning but what if it was a Irma or Maria?
