Re: Intense storm nearing Cape Horn
Holy SHIT Batman! Look at that pressure gradient between the 955mb Low and 1036mb High! What are the forecast winds in advance of that monster hole in the atmosphere? 100-120kts! Yeeacchhh!
DAMNED GLAD NOT TO BE THERE!
Btw Fred, what's the lowest barometric pressure you've ever seen in a non tropical cyclone? I saw 948mb in one January storm that swept over the Aleutians in 1990. Luckily I was not near the center of it, but at 260mi away we still had 90kts sustained! Just your average little winter blow for the Bering Sea!
Brody: You're certifiable, Quint! You know that?
Quint: Yeah, yeah, yeah...
