  1. tfw your parents spend all their time complaining about meteorologists and how shitty they are... i suppose they forget what their daughter is.

  2. It's been a little while since I've done these and I kind of dropped the ball for Tropical Storm Gordon, but with the Atlantic ramping up in activity, I figured I'd give my two cents again. Keep in mind that this isn't coming out of my rear - I'm currently a senior in Atmospheric Sciences (concentration in Weather Forecasting) and have a massive interest in emergency management in significant weather prone areas. Tropical weather is my love, it's a little unhealthy, but furthermore, I love to make sure people are aware of any impacts and can be kept safe. There is a never-ending learning situation in Meteorology, so I'll share what my professors have briefed us with and my own personal knowledge. Tropical Storm Florence Current Data (as of 5pm AST): Max Winds: 70mph (Tropical Storm) Min Pressure: 989 mb Movement: W at 5mph Current Impacts: There are currently no major impacts to be expected as this system is not interacting with land. Earlier model runs had this storm moving over Bermuda, but this has since been removed from the model tracks. Since the storm is not interacting with land, there are no coastal watches or warnings in effect, but there is a concern for high surf and swells along the east coast of the U.S. and Bermuda. I wouldn't get into the water along the east coast - rip currents are going to be a major threat. Future Impacts: This is where the nitty gritty is going to happen. Earlier this week, Florence had made it to hurricane strength but had been impacted by strong upper-level wind shear (change of wind direction and wind speed with height) and effects from dry air. This activity almost killed the storm, but Florence was strong (lol)! As of now, Florence is recovering slowly from these effects and is moving into warmer waters - this will help with rapid re-intensification, which is starting to show through the convection of the outer bands (thin clouds in the outer bands with persistent deep convection near the center of circulation). Florence is forecast to intensify to a hurricane late tonight or tomorrow morning. This rapid intensification is expected to continue into becoming a major hurricane (category 3+) in the matter of 36-48 hours. Current models have a peak intensity of 125 knots (144mph), which is a category 4 major hurricane. The movement of Florence is very slow.. almost painfully so. The direction of the track is based off of two high pressure systems; one to the northeast and one to the southwest. There is a blocking ridge expected to form off of Bermuda which will help accelerate Florence and keep the track of impact closer to the States. The exact landfall point is still extremely uncertain as it's still a week out and there are still developing ridges that need to be watched to determine the exact path, but the likelihood of a direct impact to the U.S. coast is becoming more and more certain with each run of the models. It's too soon to start giving out numbers in terms of timing, location, and strength, but with the current forecast, I'd rather people be safe than sorry. People along the U.S. east coast should have hurricane plans in place (this includes Florida through North Carolina primarily, for now) and begin carefully watching the progress of this system through the next few days. I'm watching this storm very carefully as I, personally, am living in North Carolina and my family is closer to the coast than I am. It's best to not compare this storm to past storms, every storm is different. If I hear comparisons of Florence to Hugo or Sandy, I'mma be upsetti. Tropical Storm Helene Current Data (as of 8pm AST): Max Winds: 60mph Min Pressure: 998 mb Movement: W at 13mph Current Impacts: Currently, Tropical Storm Helene is located SE of the Cabo Verde Islands. There are hurricane watches in effect for the Cabo Verde islands, as well as tropical storm warnings. Total rain accumulations for these islands are anticipated to be around 3-5 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 8 inches. Rainfall of this magnitude in a short period of time can create flash flooding. Future Impacts: Tropical Storm Helene is anticipated to strengthen to hurricane status in the coming days. The general track is anticipated to continue to the west, with intensification occurring along this path. According to models, the environment that Helene will be located in after 72h will ultimately weaken the system significantly. The motion is anticipated to continue moving W/WNW for the next 3+ days before turning NW due to a subtropical ridge. The model guidance does not expect any interaction with land. Tropical Storm Isaac Current Data (as of 5pm AST): Max Winds: 40mph Min Pressure: 1005 mb Movement: W at 7mph Current Impacts: There are currently no watches or warnings in effect for Tropical Storm Isaac and no hazards affecting land. Future Impacts: Currently, Tropical Storm Isaac is a low-grade tropical storm. Strengthening to hurricane status is expected to occur by Monday. It is extremely far out to say anything final, but this is a storm that Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic should begin keeping an eye on early this week. The track is generally westward with a northern tilt beginning at the end of the 5-d forecast period. **As always, if you have any questions, I am always happy to answer them. I enjoy these little weather briefings and I like sharing my knowledge with people so they are better prepared. Stay safe <3** Tags: @TypeReaL(OD) @Aerineth(OD)

    I would!

    need guild on wow

    @NekTheSheep currently is leading the squad, to my knowledge. He can typically be found on Discord. No need to make a new one 😛
  5. I do not know if we have OD members in Hawaii.. But please be safe and keep an eye on weather outlets and shelter alerts. Spaghetti models are trending towards a turn and landfall in Hawaii for Hurricane Lane.

    Does it snow as much as people say it does (like 8 months out of the year)?
  7. Happy birthday comp! :3

      Why Thank you Rose!

  8. Heya folks, the long awaited merge event between MHW and FFXIV is officially live on FFXIV! We are able to get new gear (glamours, I'd assume), new minions, and a pretty new mount. If you're interested in playing with us, come check out the OD Discord and poke me! Further reading about the event can be found here: https://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/special/monsterhunter/

    Some new glamour purchases I made.. I spent $60 on a few new glamour outfits and some dances. I might have an addiction to looking aesthetically pleasing. Ft. @RaraDeaf (ex-OD member)

    Alright, we're back to $1200 being a max at the moment. IRL issues.. yay. Opinions on this? https://www.cyberpowerpc.com/system/Early-Back-to-School-Special-I - CyberPower is running alot of back to school deals (yay back to school). My dad has a PC from CyberPower but has no idea what it is, which is super helpful. I can play league and many other games on it, will try to figure out what is in it. I also found another laptop in case all else fails: https://www.amazon.com/Acer-Predator-i7-7700HQ-1060-6GB-G3-571-77QK/dp/B06Y4GZS9C?psc=1&amp;SubscriptionId=AKIAJYTKMSRZ7ZJNCWYA&amp;tag=bestlapworld-20&amp;linkCode=xm2&amp;camp=2025&amp;creative=165953&amp;creativeASIN=B06Y4GZS9C

    It is somewhat likely that I can up my budget a little bit - with a maximum of about $1300-1400. If anyone has suggestions for that (prebuilt at this point).. or potentially in individual parts, would be appreciated ❤️
  14. At the point of pure stress about being unsure if I can even go back to school in 3 weeks. No cosigners for loans equals no loan. Money stresses me out.

      Cheer up babes everything will come good  have faith ❤️

      Money almost always stresses everyone out... Keep positive, and positivity will respond in due time 😉
