More details on the background and physics are in yesterday’s post, but last night’s runs of the US model, which was forecasting a direct hit on the Carolinas, is keeping Joaquin offshore. But don’t stop keeping an eye on this storm – still lots of moisture ahead of it and remember the reason the models have such different solutions is because Joaquin will move northward and bounce around the edges of the high pressure system like it was a bouncy castle. Here’s the last two model runs for the same time…and the new run from the 8am Thursday data has more updated data than the 1am Thursday run, so it may be quite different.
Where to look for Saturn in the sky…
Saturn is low in the southern sky just after sunset. It is up all evening.
