Here is what they are forecasting for JFK at 14 Zulu (10:00 a.m local on Sunday).
FM281400 05060G75KT 1SM +RA BR OVC005
That wind 60 gusting to 75 is in knots, not km/h nor mph. So it's 86 mph or 140 km/h.
She is going to blow. Yeah, baby! Batten down the hatches!!!
|Here's the forecast track from the Canadian Hurricane Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I say Halifax but really it is across the harbour in Dartmouth. I worked at the Hurricane Centre and I miss the "Buzz" associated with a good storm.|
It won't be til midnight where I can say..."GOODNIGHT IRENE!!!!"
