    Long range GFS has it run up behind Irma then loop back.

    If Jose catches up with Irma next week, will they be making little beaner babies?

    Jose looks to stay pretty far out from land from the new forecast models. should send swell the week after irma hits your East Coast beach

    This is a loco storm. Reminds me of Jeanne 04, it did a wind up and then a surprise kapow east coast of florida.
    Seems like it is sending swell to east coast next weekend.

    That storm is sending waves to the EC right now, may be a few days to get there.
    figure out distance to say Folly Beach 1300 Miles, divide by 40mph (speed of waves at 10 second period)=32.5 hours. However, bottom drag will cut a lot of that speed off once on continental shelf to 20 mph; that adds 16 hours aprox, so I say 48 hours to Folly about.
    How did I figure mileage?? Easy. Use lat/long quadrants. There are 360 degrees. Each quadrant lat and long has 5 degrees, then each degree is 69.2 miles (earth circumference is 24901.) Use H = square root of a2+b2 to calculate aprox mileage (hypotenuse of right angle).
    High school stuff. We should all be able to do that. Unless we is all morons........duh....

    See what happens when I have a glass of wine with lunch??
