Swellinfo....Looks like the Jet Stream is in a favorable position to push this NW at about the time those models stop..I have a hard time imagining this thing moving any further East after Tuesday, most likely NW.
"Assuming" this becomes a Cat 2 by the time it reaches the model's edge on Tuesday..would that be powerful enough to send solid swell to NJ?
I am thinking about making a trip to the outer banks incase NJ gets skunked..
The latest model update I've looked at have this storm stalling right around Bermuda... not doing the usual "turn and burn" routine... a storm of this magnitude stalling for 24-48 hours and just spinning around Bermuda... while this would obviously be bad news for Bermuda, I think it's about the best scenario possible for us! far more desirable that a storm ripping up the coast like Irene etc.. I remember a storm like this a few years ago.. like early 2000's that stalled for a few days out there and just lit up the whole friggin coast for a week or so... anybody remember that? wasn't Fabian...
I'm trying to keep calm here... it's hard to imagine the tremendous let-down we may experience if this doesn't pan out...
Me. Used to hate September cuz it meant the return of school, but that was 30 years ago. Now it's my favorite month of the year.
Possible fly in the ointment w/ clean surf from Leslie is the interaction of Isaac remnants with the cold front due to approach/move through the mid atlantic next week. GFS keeps bending Isaac remnants further south which might give the delmarva a bunch of localized wind that'll chop everything up. Hope not.
